I've been to 3 natural path and this one is one who works on the condition, but mainly having the testing done to see what is going on with your DNA, are you predisposed to having autoimmune dis-ease, also so many other things that no doctors (13 in the last 4 years now) have been able to determine what is going on, nor did they care to.
He's in Wisconsin, I live in Michigan, I did all the testing by presciption (Genenova Diagnostics formely Great Smokey Labs) and I will finally meet him on the 27th of this month when he comes to Michigan. Dr. Hicks from Pathways Medical. I have spent a lot of money with him b/c some of the testing, consult and supplementation is not covered by insurance. However, during it all my flare got worse and I started sulfasalazine which has been working out great. So, at least I can concentrate on the over active immune system, high estrogen, low seratonine that I have. It's better being absorb since I'm not having the bloody diarreah and 20 trips to the bathroom. It will take a long time to get healed b/c of the natual route. I'm chaning my emotions too, that has a lot to do with it. Stress and fear are big no, no's for me. It's made me worse from the beginning. So, there's several angles I'm going towards healing the UC.
