I’m Graham from South East England, 40 years old and diagnosed with proctitis then Ulcerative Colitis over 10 years ago. I didn’t make the connection at the time but this illness made itself known to me shortly after quitting smoking. My story is hard to believe but I’ve had a massive breakthrough and I hope it helps you too…
Almost no symptoms at all…
Natural Pain Relief
These links below could be of some use to you, though my UC does not give me joint pain, my personal breakthrough may well be relevant. The 1st explains that Extra Virgin Olive Oil surpasses Ibuprofen for pain relief (naturally). I have also included the link to my story where I (yes hard to believe) keep my UC away using EVOO, 3 tablespoons a day (no meds). This amazing ancient food of goodness is currently being used in research for this disease and others. The astonishing benefit I have had has led me to try and learn why, how etc and the benefits keep coming, ok so I’m now obsessed!
My previous posts will better explain how, but I have been on the EVOO long enough (15 months) to realize it must have also sorted or be suppressing my 15 year back problem. I did have a recent flare where I took plain olive oil by mistake and not EVOO (this is crucial). During this bad period my back became tender once again and it also “hit home” how good it had been for some time. Well I felt like a fool for not being able to read a bottle but mainly a huge relief that EVOO was still the real deal and sure enough everything returned to normal, including my back!
I realize this is not very scientific but surely worth a shot if you suffer joint pain and need a natural solution. We have to be careful what we take right? Taking medication for pain relief in addition to everything else surely cant help. The suggestion is about 3-1/2 tablespoons which is coincidentally a similar amount to what have each day. This amount is not considered a health risk, Monounsaturated fat improves heart health, help you lose belly fat and keep your cholesterol down.
Why not try it for a few weeks? If you do its worth researching which EVOO you are buying, there are fakes and less pure oils out there. An old bottle you may have will have had its benefits reduced by time and they can also be reduced with exposure to sunlight. I use Napolina EVOO, it tastes ok and is doing a good job for me.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, its the future…
