Sup fellow uc ppls
My name is Dave from Chicago
I had UC for about 6yrs.
Ulcerative colitis has taken a huge toll in my life n fighting back is tough.
I’m looking to gain info n help so I can beat uc down
Loose and Bloody stools, Cramps
Ok I hate hardcore medications like prednisone although for rough flairs I believe it has gotton me out of it.
Besides my medical methods I’ve been taking a homeopathic methods as well.
Very costlt when added up but u’ll do anything to feel better.
Ive changed doctors several times n even though they r good its hard to go back to em when facing the facts of no cure. So now I go for meds in desperate measures.
I’ve gained alot from herbal docs ann natrual docs as well and I keep up with most of their ideas but still no cure.
So after registering this fact I was abile to move on concentrating on maintaining remission.
With it came the scd diet n so far it put me in cool more than anything else I’ve tried, close to a yr.
I was happy. I still was on asacol during the diet but nothing more far as non homeopathic meds went.
I was glad I got off prednisone n lost my moon face n anxiety n all the other fun stuff.
I do feel strange eye problems. My eyes gets blurry n weak.
Ive googled this subject n serveral ppl experienced it n went further to get their eyes checked but every tests came back normal to them. I haven’t gone to get my eyes checked yet for this symptom fades in and out but I’ve got good gut feeling its related to uc, what u guys think????
Ok this is why iam really writing, I take oregano, silver water, ginsang, etc I know these build ur immune system.
Now I understand predn suppresses ur immnune system.
I feel if I take both of this meds it creates counter effects.
One boosts n one lowers, iam tempted to exclude to homeopathic ones out when iam trying to recover from a flairusing pred…
Could ppl give me feedbacks????
Its really tough going through life with uc n iam glad I joined this site
