Details about how our gut microbiome is extremely important in our individual health, along with some ideas about what life events can potentially change future results and health and medical conditions with mention of inflammatory bowel disease among other diseases and disorders.
science and research into the ulcerative colitis, or gastrointestinal world.
Bleeding, kissing the toilet seat with your gluteus maxer for hours on end, running to the pharmacy to fill that latest prescription, and filling up on toilet paper is all a part of living with UC. We can probably all agree on that. Even if you don’t have UC but made it to this […]
Hey UC’ers, Big thanks to Berklia for sending over the email below which contains several links to nearly the whole program for those of you who could not attend. Thank you so much Berklia for the colitis related information. It is very much appreciated especially since so many people just don’t have the opportunity to […]
Intro: Japan has the lowest cases of people who suffer with UC, could this be all about the diet they eat or the foods they buy? In my story I talk about a plant called Stevia rebaudiana that has been used in Japan since 1971 in foods and drinks (including coca cola) and how it […]
If you are unsure of how diet may/may not play a role in UC, or if you want to simply learn more about some current research that is taking place, I’d highly recommend you watch the two videos that are on the links
Hey there UC’ers, I came across two studies earlier today, and I think they might be of interest to you as well. Since I’ve been following IBD in the science world, and specifically ulcerative colitis, there has certainly been some changes in how the scientific world approaches our disease. It wasn’t long ago, let’s just […]
Anti-TNF medications (humira, remicade, cimzia, Simponi for example) are the fastest growing treatment options (and most profitable for drug companies for treating our disease). You as a UC patient should for sure be familiar with what to expect in terms of potential outcomes and side effects on a range of things before getting started, or […]
Is there something to the new research regarding people who grew up on livestock farms and their smaller probability of getting IBD in the future. Much has to do with exposure to bacteria at an early age when the immune system is developing, what do you think?
If you’re Hiroshi, Masaki, Yoshitaka, and a bunch of others from Japan who completed some research that was published in February of 2013…I’m pretty sure that you’re answer is going to be a big fat, “YES! Life events can indeed cause/induce colitis flares”. So once again, I was spending time reading through PubMed and another […]
Hey, I hope you are all doing well. I’m actually writing this post in a bit of a hurry as I’m hitting the road tomorrow and heading back to the US, but I wanted to make sure to get this posted before taking off in the morning. Earlier tonight I was doing some research on […]
There is a fascinating scientific study I think you’ll enjoy. WAY MORE interesting than Kate and Will’s new royal baby, the Kardashians(when are they going to be over with), President Morsi’s troubles, and all of the other news that’s out there. The news makes you dumber, this will make you smarter, for sure! You don’t […]
What up Colitis Folks! The time has come, we need to get down to some basics with our Immune System. Epithelial Surfaces What a strange looking/sounding set of words. Almost sounds like a part of an insect’s antennae right? Truth is, we all have these things, and a crapload of them. Even if you don’t […]
Participants must meet certain criteria and there is a screening process for fecal donors. Patients may not be in remission, on biologic therapy, or be using probiotics.
