Hello. My name is CLL. 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 believe 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( or remedy, whatever you want to call it) is quite simple but I know I could make a lot of money if I took my findings to a pharmaceutical company or wrote a book etc etc, I am sure a pharmaceutical company would want keep the simplicity of my findings a secret and develop a medication that works with my discovery, and not let the public know exactly the simplicity of what is really going on. 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 I think 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 possibly 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 very much think that 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. When not flaring i only eat maybe one or two cans a week and it keeps me in remission. Also while in remission I can usually stay in remission by eating lots of vegtables and foods with magnesium in it and I can go for quite some time without eating any spinach at all, all vegtables have some beta carotene in it, but a large can of spinach contains a lot, and also contains a lot of magnesium. but if I have any sign of a flare I eat a can of spinach a day and it rids me of my flare every single time. If my flare is real bad and my colon is in bad shape such as when I first discovered this it can take a month of eating spinach and high magnesium foods daily to be healed, if my flare is just starting it only takes one to three days to be healed, and my flares now never get any worse than a firm BM with a little mucus on it now that i know the cure. I never have D now because I can always rid myself of a flare before it gets bad.
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. 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:)
PS. maybe cure is the wrong word but to me it has been a cure if I do as mentioned continuously. Lets just say its a cure but that requires work to keep things balanced. I hope it will be a cure for you too.
