Anybody used Parastroy? My mom has been wanting me to do this since I got diagnosed. Parastroy seems strong and has some laxitives in it, Not that I have tons of D. But, I don't want to aggravate my IBD.

Any input would be appreciated...

I read somewhere that tea made from thyme leaves does the trick without the other harsh stuff.

Thanks again,
TPT

never tried anything like that.....clarify what you mean you're finishing the Colazal tomorrow.

Are you on any other meds?

Hi Quincy,

Here's some more info. I've been in a flare on and off since February. Mostly just small amounts of blood in stool, 1-3 BM per day. Urgency/pain not really a problem.

Today I finished my 10 weeks on 9 pills daily Colazal. I'm still continuing with twice daily canasa 1000mg. Plus vitamin e enemas, boswellia, 10 billion/cap probiotics, fish oil, tumeric, l-glutamine, 5HTP for mood. Considering aloe/wheatgreass orally plus aloe/probiotic enemas and a fecal transplant.

My flaring ebbs and flows with my cycle, when I'm ovulating or having my period. I really want to get pregnant this year and have been waiting for a break in my symptoms. The last two years I have been in remission with just a canasa every other day at night. This year has been very different.

My mom thinks I may have a parasite from traveling and my love of sushi. She has wanted to do a parasite cleanse, hence the parastroy question. I just think now that I doing a little better, I may not want to be taking a strong cleanse with laxatives, even if it is to clear out parasites. Could it make me worse again?

Thoughts?

Thank you.
TPT

PS: Last time I used Colazal it worked better for me, this year the results haven't been as great.
