Hi, you know I've been at this a long time trying to figure out why I have UC, how did I get it and what can I take to get rid of it? It's been almost 5 years with it and before that I showed symptoms of gas, discomfort and urgency. I have found this awesome doctor who is so thorough it blows me away. He's my 13th or 14th doctor in the last 5 years. I can not accept administering medication with a cause of why I have UC. So thorough testing, I'm high in my estrogen, low in my dopamine (this alone will not make you feel good, piled on by UC) I'm not detoxing anything from my system, so it just accumlates i.e. heavy metals, I have bad bugs in the gut, candida in my gut, I'm low in B's, C, Zinc, Co-Q10 (can you believe I'm fine in iron and folate?) and the main thing is my immune system is stuck in overdrive on one side and low on the other side. What I want to get accross is that there is testing out there that evalutes everything going on in your body. I am truly feeling better. Imagine, finding out everything your body is diffecient in and supplementing it to it highest potential. I did extensive testing and it was time consuming, but it has been well worth it. You can heal from UC, I believe that. Please read up or watch the video about comprehensive metabolica profile Video (Google it) and you'll be amazed what this test can tell you. Here's another side to it too, your emotional side. How are you feeling, in your life, in your family, in your work? If something in your mind doesn't sit right, it won't sit right in your gut either.
I'm predisposed to have a autoimmune (that doesn't mean you will always it some dis-ease) there were factors in my life that triggered it. You can get your immune system balanced.
I'm just trying to help b/c I have spent at least $10,000 in supplements another $10,000 in doctors that years in physical pain. Finally, I've struck gold and I want you to feel better too. No one knows what you've been through with having UC until you have it, I understand.
