To be able to give presentations and teach.
This is something I have tried many times and failed many times. I've been taking Lexapro for the last two years, and my stress is much more manageable. My goal is to be able to give presentations and teach to large groups. I just started Toastmasters again.
Colitis is in remission. No longer get IBS.
Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.
What works for me: Fecal transplantation, Probiotics, Anti-inflammatory foods, No HFCS, No crystalline fructose, No foods high in fructose, No artificial sweeteners, No pro-inflammatory foods when flaring, vitamins & supplements, Lexapro (for stress).
