This is a new section of the website. I’ve tried to figure out a way to allow people and businesses, and organizations an easy way to promote their cause/business/program on the iHaveUC site moving forward. And…here’s the first round at this. There is a form that was filled out by the following folks, and I’ll monitor them in the future to make sure what gets posted passes my “smell test” for things that should appear on the site.
This type of broadcast isn’t going to be happening all the time, and I’ll try to keep it limited, but here goes for the first few:
Producing Colitis Episodes
Lucky Tiger Productions
I am producing about Ulcerative Colitis. Each episode will run approximately 1-2 minutes in length with the purpose of helping to inform and educate Ulcerative Colitis patients, their loved ones and the general public.
We’d like to ask an Ulcerative Colitis patient, age 45-55 in the NYC area, about your experiences with the condition on camera. The footage will then be intercut with other patient and doctor interviews to create short videos with subjects such as: ‘What is Ulcerative Colitis?’, ‘What You Need to Know?’, ‘How to Control Pain?’, etc. We will require two hours of time and plan to record the videos on Feb 25-26, whenever is most convenient. We can offer you an honorarium of $150 for participation.
If you’re interested, please contact me at Alison@LuckyTigerProductions.com or 914-263-0869.

Fecal Transplant New Blog
I have recently started a blog chronicling my experience with treating my ulcerative colitis using a self administered fecal transplant. My purpose is to share my experience with others, so that they may learn, and to be available for any curiosities they may have concerning my experience.

Get Funded and Get Healthy TODAY! Our Foundation helps FUND patients and creates specialized CENTERS to help those with Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, MS, Fibromyalgia, Endometriosis and other autoimmune diseases drastically change their health and achieve remission through NUTRITION. Your funding goes to doctors, tests, lodging at our centers, nutrition, supplements, meals, classes, counseling and support. The Centers are available for people who need to dramatically reverse their nutrition habits due to chronic immune diseases and don’t have the expertise, location, money, or support to make this kind of drastic change. It usually takes a few weeks to a few months to start someone on the road to health. All clients would be paired with a trained doctor to coordinate nutrition regimens to restore vibrant health. Clients can choose to stay at the CCNF Centers to get the most immersed support, or they can get support virtually with our staff of Patient Advocates, Life Coaches, Nutritionists, and Educators who will work with you each step of the way to make sure you reach remission success!

My name is Sergey, and I also suffer from UC . I was diagnosed 1,5 years ago. As I am a software developer, I am planning to make a mobile app , which could help to keep track of things and somehow assist in UC and IBD life generally. The application would be released immediately for iOS, Android , BB and Winmobile phones. Please, I am asking to feedback and motivate me in this hard work, because I would invest a lot of time and efforts.
For Now there are two general Functions which I suppose are
a) Bowel Movement module, which will help you to log your WC visits and the different parameters of BM like mocus, blood etc…. This information then you could share with your GI doctor and help him to see the real view of the situation.
b) SCD module, which will give possibility to fast check what is legal, what not.
Please take several minutes to visit www.theibdapp.com to feedback and motivate me for the development. Tell me what functions would you expect from the perfect IBD app. What it should do? What it Could do?
Please, it’s will take 2 minutes of your time !!! PLEASE PLEASE just share your opinion and help with ideas. If even no ideas are coming, just an encouraging message would be a GREAT MOTIVATION INJECTION.
Help to make something which can help in IBD life ….
Thanks again to everyone who has added to the list above, I sure hope this type of info will be helpful to some of the readers of the site. Have a great rest of the weekend, and a great week coming up to start the second half of February.
As a quick sidenote, I’m working on pulling off a live interview right now with a pretty special UC’er who’s been following the iHaveUC site nearly since its inception. And although this UC’er has been through hell with getting symptoms under control, he’s wanted to come forward and do something super cool and share what life is like RIGHT AFTER getting surgery. Still in the works, and I hope it can be pulled off since I for sure have some questions about what life’s like. Anyways, not a for sure, but in planning stages at the moment. Stay tuned (and get on the newsletter if you’re not already).
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
Leave a comment, ask a question, take advantage of our past experiences here, use the search boxes, they are your friends to0:)
Remember while using the site that:
UC symptoms and flare ups don’t last forever and no two people are the same.
You cool with that? good!
now get on our newsletter so we don’t forget about you.
