Biljana wrote a story on the site a long while back, and she just wrote me this email I wanted to share with all of you. Here is her picture she submitted back when she wrote her story in 2012:
Her email to me is farther below(please make sure to read that!)
I would like to tell you what helped me recently with my colitis.
I found out that whenever I have a problem or stress I get the
symptoms back. Then a friend who is a GI surgeon told me about a
bacterium that causes bleeding and I connected it to my symptoms I
forgot the name) and that started me thinking.
went to a friend who had a Scio Bio-feedback machine and it found
tons of pathogens. I kill them with many things like wild oregano oil,
activated charcoal, propolis, garlic, diatomaceous earth, and similar,
but what I completely forgot and my friend who is a wholistic
nutritionist said that I HAVE to take probiotics my whole life. So I
figured I would be on the strongest ones I could find in a store and
be on it for 4 months.
I am taking New Roots Probiotic Recovery that has 120 billion live
active whole cells, and 20 strains. I am in my third month now. I
recently had a bad stressful situation and no blood, cramps, nothing…
She said that after that I need to switch to less potent probiotics.
I urge some caution with this one though as it has 7 dairy strains. I
do not consume dairy except for aged cheese. I am off dairy, gluten (I
sin here sometimes), but I noticed that all legumes cause bloating and
pain, and sometimes cabbage too. I cook bones for 7-8 hours, that one
helped a lot.
I wanted to share this with the people in the UC community. It took me
a long time to find this out.
Regards to all,
Here is the link on Amazon.com to the probiotic Biljana mentioned:
And Amazon links to a few other items she mentioned:
I started site shortly after being diagnosed in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
