Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Week – By Enid Taylor


This week is Crohn’s and Colitis awareness week.  From 1st – 7th December, Crohn’s and Colitis UK are working hard to bring together the community of sufferers to raise awareness and help people who feel isolated by their condition.  They want people to share their experiences of living with these conditions.

Today (Friday 4th) is #PurpleFriday where people are being encouraged to wear, bake, drink and paint things purple. To show our support, we have changed our social media headers to purple for the day and our staff are wearing something purple

As I write this blog, I am reading some lovely testimonials from patients whose lives have been transformed after visiting our clinic.

At The Taymount Clinic, we want to help and support as many people as possible living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).  We work tirelessly to find ways to help improve gut health, and work with patients not just through treatment but also through support with diet, nutrition and lifestyle choices.  We specialize in FMT – Faecal Microbiota Transplant, which is the process of implanting the full range of bacteria from a healthy donor into the gut of a person who is lacking the essential Microflora in the balance they need for their gut to function properly.   Often just re-setting the gut flora can have long-reaching effects on other symptoms and disease states and this is what we focus on – just restoring the gut flora to normal.

On a daily basis, we receive calls from people who have suffered for too long.  Patients are from all walks of life and from all over the world.   There are too many heartwarming stories to mention in one blog, but for sufferers of IBD, Crohn’s and Colitis,  it is reassuring to know there is a treatment out there that can help restore their gut flora and help to bring about improvement.

So not just today and this week, but from this point forward, we will be doing what we can to help as many Crohn’s and Colitis sufferers as possible and to let them know there are options available to them and that restoring their gut flora can be an important step forward in reclaiming their health.
