I don’t use Facebook or Twitter, my life was hell. I hope some people get relief trying what I am doing. I hope this helps.
Some more about Ben:
Raising a family, weight lifting, going to the beach. I live in Melbourne Beach Florida. I am a workaholic that is just now figuring out how to live. Recently I learned about laws of attraction and am applying it to all aspects of life.
None, from what I have read even in remission your colon should be inflamed, mine is not.
I believe my ulcerative colitis is cured.
I was diagnosed over 10 years ago. I have been on every medicine from prednisone (lots of prednisone) to remicade. For the last 4 years I have been on Asacol hd.
About 3 years ago I started taking 2 imodium ad pills with my Asacol in the morning. This immediately brought me a huge relief. Life changing huge relief. I still had occasional blood in my stool But I was regular without urgency to go to the bathroom, just healthy morning bowel movements. I actually gained weight. I have worked out with different degrees of consistency since I was a teenager (I am 42 now). 4 months ago my wife made a comment about how cute my “kitty cat belly” was. I immediately realized that I had let myself go more so than ever.
The next day while tying my shoes I was bothered by my newly acquired gut. I immediately started eating healthy I cut out all sugars, breads, dairy and replaced fruit with vegetables with the exception of bananas I reduced red meat and eat a high protein diet with lots of chicken. I had a colonoscopy today and had absolutely no inflammation. I did have 4 polyps removed, I believe they were formed by my previous diet. I am not sure how long I am going to stay on medication. Ever since I changed my diet I have had zero issues.
About the same time i cleaned up my diet a friend explained law of attraction to me. I don’t think this is related to my relief but I would hate to leave that part out. I am a twenty year industrial worker, please don’t dismiss law of attraction to some hippy stuff, I am far from that. Please share this so others can try adding imodium and a clean diet so they can enjoy living a normal life.
