My Healing Journey
I am 41years old, married with two daughters, 6 and 4.
I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis about three and a half years ago.
The diagnosis came after several months of bleeding, a mounting sense of discomfort, bowel and abdominal pain.
When I got out of there I was prescribed by a doctor who said I should immediately start taking medication. I told myself I wasn’t going to take medication because I’m sure i can beat this disease even without medication, and I throw away the prescription to the nearest bin.
From that moment on I began my journey to recovery.
I started the treatment , trying the diet of raw food for eight months that was not so good for me.
Homeopathy helped me a lot.
I tried Chinese herbs did not work.
At the same time doing all sorts of spiritual therapies that have helped me grow and cope with the situation.
Until a year ago in my search I came across a site of healing with scd diet.
The diet has changed my life. I have been on the diet for one year, I’m very careful about the diet with minor changes it is really helping me. I eat quinoa and buckwheat, hardly any red meat, more chicken and some fish. Lots of fruits and vegetables , legumes and a lot nuts.
Now I feel good and energetic, almost no bleeding, and no pain at all.however I still go to the bathroom about 10 times a day, but with less urgency, and still wake up at night once or twice.
My situation now is very well and I feel that if I will be careful and continue with the diet I will heel. Plus I take long walks in the nature and with the help of God I believe the disease is only a step in my development and a chance to look at my life in a more meaningful way than before.
I do not take any medication, and i never did.
