I understand, when I was in hospital going 30 times a day with loads of blood, my friend made me stand in a Chi gong pose for 5 minutes and it halfed the amount of times I went.
I would stand like that for as long as I could both morning and night. It really helped.
There is alot to be said for the alternative, and being calm, I find it is easy to panic and get upset after a bad or many BM's
My thing is to try anything, I'm hoping to get control of this flare at the moment, but it is nothing compared to what I've had in the past. So I always count my lucky stars and try to stay in the moment as thinking ahead can start the BM's
I used to call it nervous poo before I was diagnosed - something I would get before I went out - I think lots of people suffer from that anyway.
Emotions are bedded deep in our colons!
Diagnosed with Proctitis UC in Jan 2007 but never realised the seriousness of it....given Pentasa suppositories.....Nov/Dec 2008 very ill - thought it was food poisoning so was prescribed antibiotics twice then ended up in Hospital for 11 days on IV Steroids tapering off with Prednisolone Pancolitis now diagnosed!....another flare in April hospitalised for 12 days put onto Azathioprine and the prednisolone which has now finished. Hooray!
Presently Daily - Pentasa 4 tablets am & pm - 100mg Azathiprine - Asacol enema when needed
Alternatively I take a herbal tincture created for me by the Archway Clinic of Herbal Medicine which is great - I am taking a homeopathic treatment - Aloe Vera tablets - Slippery Elm tablets - Echinachia tablets - Floradix Herbal Iron Tonic - Royal Jelly
