what do i need to get this kid into remission-i want her to be able to go back to school and finish with her friends but we can't send her if she is going to keep on bleeding
I'd highly recommend you check out Jini Patel Thompson's book, Listen to Your Gut. There are alot of things you can do to support healing that will help the drugs work better and/or reduce her need for meds. Drugs have their place, particularly when you're in crisis mode, but there's also proof that dietary manipulation, probiotic supplementation, and other natural supplements can reduce inflammation, reestablish healthy gut ecology and improve digestion.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999
