In brief: No. (can be fatal)

Toxic megacolon can be fatal.
Hospitalization and treatment is needed. The large intestine, already stressed by inflammatory bowel disease or infection, one day stops moving and dilates full of air. The infection can spread throughout the large intestine, into the blood, and cause sepsis, shock, and death. Without rapid improvement, surgeons have to cut out the large intestine to save one's life.

In brief: Yes

I am sure there are natural remedies for this condition.
Like anything else you need an evaluation by an experienced practitioner. A homeopath or traditional chinese medicine practitioner can help. Look for one in your area.
