NBT, I'm just curious, where did you have this done, and how did they determine you had no ulcers?

Hi Judy,

I had the treatment done in New York, Manhattan and it was actually me who told them I had no ulcers, it was not something they determined neither would they try to be honest. I don't want to get too excited about this treatment or other similar treatments but I truly believe, uc or not...that colon cleansing is very important, especially in light of the typical american diet.

Hopefully, if you have UC you're no longer consuming the typical American diet. Parasites, bacteria and yeast can be eliminated in less invasive ways.

Thank You all for your replies. Good stuff to think about. I'm due for a Colonoscopy. (after I get rid of a blood clot in my leg Grrrr) I'll also check w/ my GI then. I'm just getting stressed about the whole thing. My job requires me to be out in the street 8-16hrs / day and I'm getting scared I won't be able to do it much longer if this keeps up. Hence the desperation to try anything.
