Folks I'm on my 14th doctor in 3 years. Yes it can be possible b/c I'm not convinced my UC just happened by chance.
Watch this video about CMP please
I had this blood test done along with stool and urine. My results were amazing. The long/short of it is, I still have bad bugs in my gut, yeast overgrowth and my immune system and estrogen is stuck in high gear. Some of my minerals and vitamins are low. There was so much to discuss with my new MD who is a naturalpath (have you ever heard of this? He's from Wisconsin) I had a 1 hour phone consult and it was worth every minute to learn about my blood, cells, DNA, stool, and urine. I've learned more today than I have in 13 doctos just by this one blood test. It's fairly new, but the video is amazing. If it doesn't come up type in "comprehensive metabolic profile video" in Google and you'll see a picture of a man near the bottom and that's the beginning of the video.
Essentially, my intestine have holes in it, which food particles and yeast (the yeast is the factor for the holes) leak through to the blood stream, thence the "leaky gut syndrome" what bring on the immune system to react with inflammation starting in the gut and the quick reaction to expel the waste out of the bloodstream and you get the urgency. The inflammation can bring on a host of other problems, i.e. UC. My food is not being converted to energy and this is why I'm tired all the time. Please watch the video to see what this blood test can reveal to you. You must have a practioner too who can understand the results and know how to treat you.
We're working on repairing the gut. Getting rid of the overgrowth of yeast, healing the cells so I convert food to energy and I know in 3-4 weeks I will be feeling a whole lot better. I will be healed, it's in all of us the power to heal. If you want to know my doctors info you can email personally. I don't like pushing products or people on the internet. But truly just having this test done says so much about what is happening in my body. If you've followed my path, you know that I've been saying for three years, it's just not UC something caused it and if you work on the cause you can be healed . I will keep you updated.
