I’m Healed, Praise God

picture of me

My Name is Brian.  I’m 39 and have been married 9 years.

I love my wife, the Lord, the Church, and the Bible.

I’ve had many ups and downs many flares and I wanted to share what has got me off all meds and symptom free, PRAISE GOD!!!

I need to share my story I’ve had many flares many times with diarrhea, bloody pus and thought I’d never find remission again.

I’ve had ulcerative colitis over 10 years and recently had a bad flare and couldn’t stop bleeding.   I started primal defense probiotic(Primal Defense HSO Probiotic Dietary Supplement) , juicing cabbage, carrots, and cilantro and drink 8oz of it three times a day.

Also, I take 4 slippery elm caps(Swanson Slippery Elm Bark Caps) with warm water before every meal. I take pysllium powder(Psyllium Husk Powder) with 2 meals. Bleeding and “D” have stopped.  Thank God I’m doing great, was able to stop all meds.

  1. Congrats Brian on your success! Always so nice to hear when people have made it through tuff times to find a path that works for them!!
    Please keep us posted on how you are doing, it would be excellent to hear from you some more!


  2. Such a wonderful, heart warming story.
    I have been up & down with Ulcerative Colitis & on different meds for years but, thank god, for the last 3 years it has been under control with SCD & home made yogurt.

    Per my Dr. ‘s advise, I started posting my food recipes on instagram: safe_carb_delight & it has been helping others to find variety in their diet.

    Wishing speedy recovery for all who are dealing with IBD

  3. Hi, Brian ! While you were at doing this did you had regular food meals or you changed to vegan? I just got diagnosed with UC and it’s been horrible time for me. Would be let me know?

  4. I was healed for 5 years. I forgot all about it. Became careless and now its back. But I welcome it and it just is a good wake up call. Whenever I lose touch with my body and live too much in the thinking world, it tends to return. I am now fighting to heal again. With or without it, I am grateful.

    1. I had a nice 7 year stretch and did the same darn thing, took my body for granted forging through a hectic schedule. I hit all the triggers, and I’ve been house & bed bound for 30 days. I’ve got one kid heading off to college in the fall, and the other is musician with a crazy schedule. Without hesitation I put all of their calendar and needs for success ahead of my own health. I know I’m not the only mom who does or has done this, and I justified it because I’m close to the finish line. I’m so proud of my boys as human beings and their accomplishments, but now I pay the price by missing out on performances because I’m strapped to the toilet. Shame on me….I know better.

      This site is a great source of support and information.

  5. Hi Brian!

    Your post helped me a lot. I am feeling 98% recovered. Pysllium powder helped me a lot. I meditate every morning doing “Sudharshan Kreeya” which is based on yoga and breathing exercise. I am also a vegetarian since 2009.

    I was almost going to start my meds but your recovery inspired me and helped me recover. It had helped me a lot.

    God bless you!
