My name is Talat and belong to Pakistan, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis by biopsy test.
I used Masacol for few months and then quit as I still had loose stool and was not comfortable.
I started using Ayurverdic Indian medicine and got better, but now I get frequent episodes of constipation and use medicine occasionally.
I follow a strict diet and plan to stay fit as I am a pilot and can’t afford frequent break downs. I prostrate regularly and frequently as a good Muslim, and My God is very kind on me.
I like flying and sports!
Currently I have quite a bit of constipation.
Talat’s Ulcerative Colitis Story:
My hemoglobin gets low after flares but surprisingly I get microscopic bleeding which is not visible mostly, so I keep getting it checked in blood tests. I get skin rashes, eye puffiness and some pain in my shoulder muscles, moreover feel some pain in my teeth as well.
I have not had a colonoscopy for 3 years and I’m planning to get it done soon. I have lost about 6 kg of my weight Which is probably due to use of vegetables and fruits. But overall I feel that I get tired early now, lost some vigor. I go to gym occasionally but do walk about 4 to 5 kilometers. Initially it disturbed my life but later I got adjusted with it and came out of that shock which was there immediately after my diagnosis.
Sometimes I quit medicines and just use laxatives to relief my constipation. I don’t know whether that’s correct or wrong, if you guys may give me some ideas or thoughts on that, it would be much appreciated. I am a bit worried too as I have 2 kids and praying that they don’t suffer from this problem. If you guys are interested , please do try ayurvedic medicine, it’s awesome, and available in the USA. Please advise me if you have some suggestions for me.
I shall be grateful to you.
Thank you again,
