I gave it up for a year after i was dx'd but found that it didn't make a difference. Now I actually use it to help me get on with my day earlier. It pushes everything right out and I can go off to work. Otherwise it takes hurs before i can leave the house. And really it's my only vice...besides a bit of dark chocolate at night.

I've had UC since 2000 but was in remission for most of those 8 years med free
Lialda Colazal & Asacol made symptoms worse, MUCH worse
Not taking any more meds for now. Trying a holistic approach.

I was in Jamaica September 2007 for a few days. The Blue Mountain coffee is the best! Brought back a few pounds for myself and family.
