Hey there everyone…Bev here….again….you all know my story…ad nauseaum I’m certain…lol….I’ve had UC for some 14 years now and currently completely in remission without meds!!! Yey!!!
Why me?? Why not everyone??
Zippety – doo – dah for UC symptoms at the moment! (And for the past 8 months!!!) I feel like I am actually cured!!!
For the first time in years, I can eat ANYTHING I want and nothing bad ever happens!! Like a NORMAL person.
BTW, I am a complete non-drinker now. I haven’t had alcohol in years…but I wonder sometimes if I could now that everything seems so normal. I won’t, tho, because why tempt fate, right?
Okay, so you all know all about how I got into remission with probiotics and was able to discontinue all of the pharmaceutical medications. Heck, I’ve repeated my story over and over and over on this site…sorry everybody.
Well, I ‘ve been thinking about how fortunate I am, because alot of UC’ers on here have tried probiotics, and have not had the same success with them that I have.
So, I go to buy my monthly supply of them today, and this new clerk there says to me “are you having good results with this product”, to which I reply “omg, you have no idea! I have UC, and I am in remission and off all meds now!” Well, damned if she doesn’t tell me something that I did not know…she says to me…”this product has ‘human strain’ in it”….I’m like…'”what??”
Apparently, the probiotic that I am taking has some kind of ‘human strain’ in it, where many other products do not!!! Is this the answer? Is this the difference? I couldn’t wait to get home to put this out there. She said that probiotics have alot of different places that the ‘strains’ come from, but this one also has a HUMAN STRAIN in it, and she figured that’s why I’m getting such fantastic results! I am floored…is everybody else?? Stoked too….wow!! I didn’t even know something like this existed!
So, now, everyone who is taking probiotics should find out about this so called HUMAN STRAIN, right? Does the one that you are taking have a HUMAN STRAIN in it? I don’t know if Adam knows anything about this or how to find out if it’s true or what…but I am super excited about this ‘new’ tidbit of information that I got today! I sure hope this gal knows of what she speaks…she’s got me all fired up…
I had heard about the fecal transplant and how it has worked in alot of people with UC, etc. and it makes sense, because, that too, would be of the HUMAN STRAIN nature, would it not? Wow…
Okay, that’s it for now. I have to settle down. I’m pretty jacked about this!!! Does anyone know any more about this?
Cheers to all,
Where I’d like to be in 1 year:
Exactly where I am this very moment.
One CRITICAL CARE ULTIMATE FLORA (by RENEWLIFE) probiotic capsule first thing every morning
One scoop of fermented L-glutamine powder mixed in some juice every day before lunch
One 4mg astaxanthin capsule every day right after I’ve eaten some fat (for better absorption)…this is a natural anti-inflammatory
4000 mg of vitamin D every day after I’ve eaten some fat (for better absorption)…I only take this because my levels are low…this is also a natural anti-inflammatory
