Hello. My name is Colby Leland Layton. I am a 32 year old male construction worker and I live in a mobile home park in Riverdale Utah. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2003 although I had symptoms for 4 or 5 years before being diagnosed. I have experienced all the horrible things that comes with this terrible disease, the constantly having to use the bathroom, the not being able to eat what I want, the crapping my pants in public, the feeling of being in public and having the urgency come on and the terror of needing to find a bathroom REAL FAST! the blood, the mucus, the every where I go the first thing I do is look for where the nearest toilet is etc etc, I have experienced it all. at one point I was in an extremely bad flare for two years straight non stop, I tried many medications and nothing helped much and I hated having to take the medication and not only that but it was very expensive. Then I decided I need to buckle down and find the cause or cure of this disease, I started keeping a journal of everything I ate every single day, I eliminated things from my diet, I did every thing I could to figure this out, even started drinking distilled water and changed my deodorant and toothpaste in case those were somehow the cause. Well, I have discovered the cause or cure, or at least how to be completely symptom free and be completely off medication and eat basically whatever I want with the exception of I keep my refined sugar and salt intake to a minimum because I have learned that these to things can aggravate uc symptoms.
Since my discovery I have been symptom and medication free for two and a half years now with the exception of symptoms just slightly reappearing every once in a great while but I can ride myself of them in just a few days now that have discovered what I have discovered. The cure is quite simple but I know I could make a lot of money if I took my findings to a pharmaceutical, I am sure they would want keep the simplicity of my findings a secret and develop a medication that works with my discovery. I was thinking for quite some time of doing something like this to make a lot of money, but I cant read your posts and have you people needlessly suffer any more, I need to help you, even if I don't get recognition for my discovery I need to help you people. Ok, my discovery, don't mock it because of its simplicity, it works and you can be symptom and medication free like me if you do what I say.
OK, I believe the cause of ulcerative colitis is a beta carotene and magnesium deficiency, now don't go out and buy a bunch of supplements, I don't take any supplements. When I am starting to have a flare I eat one 13.5 ounce can of spinach a day, it contains high amounts of both beta carotene and magnesium. also sunflower seeds and peanuts are high in magnesium, I eat these daily. Also most nuts and seeds are high in magnesium. also I keep my sodium intake and refined sugar intake to a minimum. And I drink distilled water daily but I don't think it really matters about the water, that's it, other than these things I eat what I want. If you do these things I am sure you too will be symptom free like myself. I only have to eat the spinach once in a while to keep symptoms at bay but at any little sign of a flare eat a can a day till symptoms are gone. Also I am sure most of you are in a flare so you will need to eat a can a day till symptoms are gone. And try to eat lots of nuts and seeds but if you cant eat nuts and seeds I think the spinach alone will help you and keep  your salt and refined sugar intake to a minimum and if you want to do exactly like I do, drink distilled water also. Now there are other things high in beta carotene such as carrots, But I would eat the spinach till your symptoms are under control and then experiment with carrots and things later because I know for a fact that the spinach works. For sharing this information with you I ask that you remember my name, maybe this way I will somehow get recognition for my discovery and I also ask that any of you that this helps that you write me and tell me about it. This is NOT a joke, this WILL work for you, It has worked for me for 2.5 years now , I take one firm bm a day, and before I discovered this it was 10 to 20 a day. Have a great day:)
Colby

Colby, glad to hear you've found something that works for you. I had to shudder a bit when reading your post, because spinach, nuts and seeds are three of the things most likely to give me D, bleeding and pain. I guess it just shows that each of us is different.

Colby, congratulations on your discovery and your health. That's awesome. I eat spinach and nuts quite regularly but not everyday. I will increase the spinach and see what it does. Do you eat canned spinach. I eat fresh uncooked mostly, but when I cook it it really shrinks, so I would assume the cooked canned spinach is really a lot and maybe we need to eat a lot to see results.

I would also assume it's the canned spinach.. Even though I seem to be in remission right now without any meds, I can't eat raw spinach or I feel horrible the next day. Any type of letuce other than iceburg and I'm done for.  That seems to be my only dietary limit since I have been feeling better.

  I just hope this is not some guy blowing smoke up our ......'s..  I hate to think that there are people out there that would lead a bunch of sick people into believing in something like a CURE or a CAUSE, when the professional medical researchers are not even sure of what it entails yet. I do believe this remedy worked for this particular guy, but everyone's genetic makeup is different and it might not work for some. I would definately try it though, and hope for the best.. 

 I'm really curious to see if this really does change things for anyone...  Don't get me wrong, I hope it does, and want it too, but we have to remember that this is the internet and we don't really know the majority of who's posting here or anything about them really....  I'm just tryin to keep it real~   I Hope I haven't made any of you angry, but I though it needed to be said.....

I am glad it works for you. Some people here have found remission through their own natural ways and I am glad it works for them. However, I would not recommend to anyone here to eat nuts and seeds. Roughage is very bad for inflamed colons. Congratulations on your remission.

Wow,
you know what, there might be some truth to this spinach thing... about a month ago, when I was flaring, I ate some salmon on a bed of spinach, and I specifically remember not having a bowel movement until the next day. I didn't really pay attention to it at the time.. And then another time, I had chopped up some spinach really small, with some red peppers also chopped up really small in a food processor and had that with olive oil , and also no bowel movement till later on that day, but it wasn't D. I am certain now that it had to have been the spinach...
I'm going to try it out again, but we have start out really small...and chop it up really small. Anyone else with any spinach stories? LOL

For me it is romaine lettuce with garlic. It really helps me in a flare. Never tried the spinach though.
 
 
Dx:  UC Proctitis 2006 
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence. 
Started Meds:  Apr 9 08 500mg 5ASA (salofalk) to ease flare, tapering, stopped. 
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
 Added: tumeric and probiotics.

It's important to read peoples success stories because you just never know how it might help you...if I hadn't put faith in the bee propolis that another poster at another board mentioned, who knows where I'd be at this point, but I bet it wouldn't be good like it is.

I love spinach. I don’t eat it every day but when ever I can. I only eat raw spinach in salads or sandwiches, I was reading once that when you cook vegetables like spinach you lose much of the nutrients.

Excellent news!!

However, I wouldn't call it a cure since you are still sensitive to sugar.

I am also med free, could it be your diet and not the beta carotene and magnesium deficiency? Either way, we are all different like I have achieved the same results without taking beta carotene and magnesium, but I'm very happy for you and greatful that you've shared this with us.

There is a cure out there and I believe it's closer than we think.

Hmm, interesting. I can try the spinach, but I don't think I can handle the nuts and seeds.

Hi guys. I'm not blowing any smoke up anybodys a:) honest to God truth this works. It needs to be canned spinach because you need alot of it to get the high beta carotene and magnesium. Im sure fresh spinach would work if you ate enough of it or spinach in a bag but I think you would have to eat a whole bag. just chew the nuts and seeds up real good. it wont hurt you. sunflower seeds pretty much turn to mush if you chew them up real good. also when you start getting your magnesium and beta carotene levels up your energy will greatly greatly increase. I know you guys are skeptics now but once you start hearing this work for more and more people on this forum your going to be blown away.

also if you can't handle the nuts or seeds you could eat a lot of peanut butter because it too is loaded with magnesium.

I can eat it without problems if my mag and beta carotene levels are high. but if it gets low those things aggravate it. So Im telling you guys to avoid it till your in remission, and then you can eat what you want

Its not my diet, other than the things I eat with the carotene and magnesium, because for lunch I eat fast food just about every day.

Very interesting series of messages.  Pretty funny, because I've been flaring and actually ate some raw spinach in a salad for lunch yesterday.  I've been feeling great the past two days.  I doubt I ate enough to really make a difference, but pretty interesting considering all these comments!
 
I too love spinach, although not cooked, but I'll have to give it a shot the next time I'm flaring!

I do eat alot of peanut butter but haven't noticed this helping much.  Nuts of any sort usually give me lots of problems.

Glad this has seemed to work for you, but I really don't think you can claim you have found THE cure and THE cause for UC and make such a bold statement as "I am about to change your lives."

I ate lots of spinach (almost daily) and nuts, peanut butter and carrots before I got UC. I've also had all my vitamin and mineral levels checked both pre-UC and since I was diagnosed and all my levels are normal. Have you even had tests to check if you really are/were deficient in magnesium or beta-carotene?
