Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis symptoms can cause painful flare-ups that can affect your life. But the Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket can help.

Restore Your Quality of Life Now

Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which is caused by inflammation of your digestive tract. Although the symptoms are similar to Crohn’s disease, colitis inflammation primarily affects the innermost lining of your colon (large intestine) and rectum.

If you suffer from ulcerative colitis, you know that inflammation is the direct cause of the symptoms you experience during a flare-up. The common symptoms of ulcerative colitis include:

  • Abdominal cramping or pain
  • Diarrhea, often with blood or pus
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Inability or urgency to defecate
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Rectal pain
  • Weight loss

The Digestive Tract

Ulcerative colitis is further categorized according to the part of the digestive tract it affects:

Ulcerative proctitis: The inflammation is confined to the area closest to the rectum (anus). Rectal bleeding may be the only sign of this form of colitis. However, this form does tend to be the mildest.
Proctosigmoiditis: The inflammation involves the rectum and sigmoid colon (lower end of the colon). Signs and symptoms include bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and pain, and the inability to move the bowels, despite the urge to do so.
Left-sided colitis: The inflammation extends from the rectum up through the sigmoid colon and the descending colon. Signs and symptoms include bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and pain that is focused on the left side, and unintended weight loss.
Pancolitis: The inflammation affects the entire colon, causing periods of severe diarrhea (most often bloody), abdominal cramping and pain, fatigue, and significant weight loss.
Acute severe ulcerative colitis: The inflammation affects the entire colon, causes extreme pain, severe diarrhea, bleeding, fever, and the inability to eat. This is the rarest form of colitis with the most intense symptoms.

Any form of colitis can result in severe complications. Some of the most severe complications consist of severe bleeding, a perforated colon (a hole in the colon), severe dehydration, inflammation of your skin, joints, and eyes, or toxic megacolon (a rapidly swelling colon).

Even though medications are available to provide some relief for some colitis symptoms, there is no known cure. In the most severe cases, the complications of colitis can become life-threatening and may require surgery.

When the symptoms are severe, don’t you wish something can relieve the pain safely without medication or surgery?

An Alternative to Pain Medication

Being in pain can change your entire way of life. Whether it’s simple day-to-day tasks that become more difficult or larger tasks that become impossible, pain can impact your quality of life. While medication can provide relief, it can be easy to forget that medications come with side effects. These side effects can cause more damage than the pain you’re trying to treat. Medicine provides only short-term relief and could lead to dependency, misuse, injury, and even death. But we have an alternative – the Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket.

For decades, far infrared (FIR) therapy has shown great promise in providing relief for those suffering from chronic health problems. According to studies, increasing evidence suggests that far infrared energy can benefit those with chronic health problems with no adverse effects.

What colitis patients say about the blanket

During the development of the Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket, we gave it to many Crohn’s and colitis patients. And it was their feedback that convinced us that the blanket had life-changing potential. They told us they were using the blanket as a prophylactic measure and having fewer flare-ups. When they used it during flare-ups, the blanket reduced the duration of their symptoms. In short, the Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket was helping restore their quality of life.

“After numerous colitis attacks, it became inevitable I would need surgery to remove areas of my small intestine which had become diseased according to all my scans. Prior to meeting with the surgeons, my daughter purchased a gladiator blanket for me in hopes it would eliminate any more episodes before I was able to have surgery. I wore the blanket for 6 weeks. In that six weeks, I initially found that I slept better than I had in years. I was not having any reoccurences of the “attacks” I had been experiencing, and day after day I noticed more comfort. I went for pre surgery testing, and the results were amazing. It was now showing no sign of disease, and was deemed a normal scan. The results were surreal, but I truly felt better after wearing the blanket those 6 weeks. This has completely changed my quality of life and has helped me tremendously. If I begin to feel any symptoms, I wear the blanket and I’m able to avoid the pain I experienced in the past. I am so grateful to feel myself again.”
