What You All Should Know about Me:
I still work and go out reasonably unrestricted.
My Colitis Remedy Story:
Yes the drugs are pretty bad and I am pleased to say that I did a lot of research on the subject against the advise of my specialist. I find that by drinking a good quality aloe juice and a good quality probiotic every evening (and I have done so for 7 years) I have enjoyed a reduction of pain and suffering.
I am told to go back on medication to ensure that the symptoms stay away for as long as possible however I think that the medications kill the gut flora and actually may be counter productive in some cases…just my thoughts.
I once threw up every night when symptoms were bad, medications were fickle often giving bad sid effects. When I was finally operated on all the scans and tests were wrong and the surgeon informed me that they had to rip out a ball of welded intestines that literally nothing was getting through.
I made a pact to research everything I could find, medical advise was always the same ‘there is no conclusive data on what you are doing’ but here is my conclusive data…IT MAKES ME FEEL BETTER. I am not going to put in brand names as I am not trying to sell anything but I cannot emphasize enough the importance of getting the gut flora correct and putting a coating on the inside of the intestines.
You can read a thousand things from people trying to sell you the magic cure for a price but here is my story and it is free advise – it worked for me and it MAY work for you. good luck and let me know how you go…7 years side my last operation and still going strong…I feel better doing these things along with a clever diet of less meat more veg and cut out stuff that irritates like coffee cigs and too much roughage.
