Hello everyone, I was diagnosed with UC a year ago. It’s horrible. Adam you are bang on the money about the pharma industry – I was annoyed by that guy from England (I’m English too) saying he doesn’t pay for meds – yes he does through national insurance lol.
For 15 years I was on anti-depressants. I came off them and started seeing a brilliant homeopath and I don’t have depression. Then the colitis popped out. I did research into the various meds I was on before and saw UC is listed as a side effect!
Anyway, reluctant to have cameras and enemas stuck up my bottom I decided to treat is with homeopathy. It’s working really well but it’s not a quick fix. I avoid foods that make me flare up and the list of things I CAN eat gets longer as I get better.
Homeopathy will eventually get rid of the UC. It is fixing the problem from the inside and all I have to do til then is avoid flare ups. The last bad one was 8 months ago and I felt like I was going to die.
I’m fat though – but I’m ok! X
Some more about Terrie:
I’m English but living in Ireland, I have two little girls and a great partner. I work as a body piercer and a photographer. I have a questionable sense of humour and I’m extremely honest! I’m also a recovering alcoholic – just under 11 years clean 8 sober!
I’m stable at the moment so I’m just prone to looking pregnant every few days. I ate beans last weekend and I had diarrhea and tiredness for a week. At my worst I felt exhausted, diarrhea for 8 months, astonishingly sharp cramps, mucus in my stools, severe dehydration, brain fog, no memory, acne, flu like symptoms and total loss of sense of humour lol
I think I covered this in the first box by mistake.
I hate doctors. Drugs and surgery are not for me. I use homeopathy and avoid food I know makes me ill. Why wouldn’t I?? I’m shocked that people are still eating everything and then getting put on more drugs – if I’m intolerant to it I’m not eating it!
At one point I felt like my colon was coming out of me. I hadn’t a clue what was wrong, never heard of UC. I nearly fainted with the pain at times, but so far this year I’ve been 100% fine.
It’s scary though and I don’t entertain fear in my life. I am terrified of baked beans and steak. I feel sad as well because I always loved food and now I’m really pissed off with it. I’m tired of cooking or eating out, I wish I didn’t have to eat at all sometimes. I eat the same limited group of foods, white carbs are ok, cheese, chicken and fish, over cooked veg and fruit smoothies are ok. I can eat scrambled eggs but I don’t really enjoy them. Basically I can eat junk – all the stuff I avoided to stay slim I now live off.
I would really love to lose 2 stone – I am a uk 14 and I hate it. I just took a photo of my double chin and I’m disgusted. I just don’t know what to eat to lose weight, isn’t it great that’s my only problem right now?!
I would urge anyone with UC to get off drugs and find the best homeopath they can asap – drugs cause colitis.
I’m looking forward to looking around your site and connecting with other sufferers – thank you so much for creating this dude!!
I covered this in two other fields lol
Hans Weitbrecht is my homeopath and he’s the best in Europe – highly recommend him. Sometimes I need a remedy to give me the mental strength I need to cope with UC.
