My Current Colitis Symptoms:
on remission (fingers crossed)
Alcohol Seems to Help My Colitis
I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis for almost 3 years now.. I know exactly how debilitating it is , as I have lost my job because of it , was borderline depressed and couldn’t go on with my life so much this illness affects your daily life ..
I have to honestly say that it can not be a coincidence , the fact that 2 of my 3 remission periods came after heavy drinking nights … as recently as 2 weeks ago , I went out with some friends and really went at with the drinks , beers and vodka shots .. obviously I spent the night hugging the bathroom throwing up , next day hang over as hell .. but since that day , I did not have a single symptom , I go to the bathroom once a day , every morning at 9h15 am , exactly 20 to 30 minutes after my coffee , no blood , no pain , just good ol’ solid logs ..
It is the second time this has happened , the first time was a year ago after a drinking night , remission only lasted for 3 weeks .
I know I might relapse soon , but I also know that I will go straight for a bottle of Vodka when that happens ..
My other remission came in the month of Ramadan .. as a muslim , I did my fasting from sunrise to sunset , and ate very healthy with my first meal always being a vegetable soup of some sort and a pill of aloe vera gel .. after 2 weeks of that diet I went to remission that lasted for 2 months .
I wonder if anybody had the same experience after a vodka heavy drinking night ..
obviously I know it is against doctors’ orders so I can’t recommend it but for me it works !
Medications I’ve Tried:
been on mesalazine , aloe vera gel pills , probiotics and vitamins
