YES! I am using IV glutathione and was able to stop my flare in its tracks! I was diagnosed in 2011 with UC, pan colitis. I was bleeding to the point of needing transfusions, hospitalized and honestly seeing no light at the end of the tunnel. Multiple Drs wanted to do a Colectomy.
I will be honest with you... I am vain, not obessively vain but vain enough to not want to be walking around carrying a bag of poop under my clothes. I made my mind up that there was NO WAY I was losing my colon. Plus when I researched it, it rarely cures anyone anyhow- they are still taking loads of drugs and many still get sick.
Am I alone here or is the correct definition of cure, like to be cured?... Not taking a dozen pills a day of chemicals and waiting to die of side effects? I wanted a cure, like a real cure where you have all your body parts and you are not a walking chemistry lab...
Anyhow, I did get over my initial illness with prednisone ( huge doses of it...) Because I needed to learn more and I was running out of time to figure things out. I just needed out of that darn hospital... Yes doctor, whatever you say doctor (now send me HOME).
So after a long course of prednisone I was 45lbs over weight, diabetic, suffering from depression, thrown into early menopause, losing my hair, had out of control cholesterol , a thyroid disorder, shingles, caught every cold that came by, had asthma, arthritis, adrenal disease....oh, but my colitis was in remission...REALLY?!?! Im sorry but who thinks that is cured? My doctors did. I started out a healthy runner with great energy, I am a business owner who could get 110things done before noon and after I was a fat, sluggish, tired, confused, balding, infertile, unable to breathe, pain racked mess and they called me cured...
But I could still read... And read I did.... My doctor assured me I was not in comprehension of what I read but honestly, I have an MBA and two undergrad degrees, a 150 IQ and a phone... I assured him I would figure it out. He told me I would die, I cheerily held up my phone and said "don't worry, I'll dial 911".
MANY months later I am down 30lbs, my hair is healthy, my thyroid is better but may never be perfect thanks to cortisone damage, my adrenals are healed, my asthma and arthritis are gone, still in full menopause and that is probably permanent damage from cortisone too, my brain fog is clearer, i am drug free other than thyroid and I can function...
What's my secret? Well common sense helps. Getting of the drugs was hard, I would flare immediately. Then I found the GAPS diet and then Ketogenic. Ketogenic is my cure all. Some people go paleo and love it but it is all about cutting processed crap and most sugar (even natural) out of your diet, you just have to find which one works for you and stop the bananas and bread BS ( the hospital dietician guaranteed that was the cure... No wonder I was dying).
Then I read some research on how UC, CROHNS and inflammatory suffers always have low glutathione levels... Is that true? I immediately ordered a test and it WAS true. just to be sure I made two non suffering friends test and they were normal. Was I onto something?
Luckily I live in las Vegas, the land of IV hangover cures. Finding a glutathione drip was easy. My friend is a Dr and he had a nurse at his house in a few mins and I Was all hooked up. Now I know his secret to win tennis tournaments the morning after a night of drinking.. IVs baby!
So I did treatments every 3days for a couple of weeks and BAM! I was cured... REALLY, it is that easy?
A few weeks ago I wanted to test it. I know, very stupid to assume you can control a flare but I just had to know for sure. Two days and four handfuls of walnuts later (a couple of green salads and yams for good measure). I was in a flare...oh crap, vwhat was I thinking! This was a bad flare, I shouldn't have done it. 30 trips to the bathroom round the clock, bleeding, dehydration.. My God, I am an idiot and am idiot in sheer debilitating PAIN.
I got my first glutathione IV and.... Nothing, still sick... WHAT! Are you kidding me, now what am I going to do... My blodd tests came back that I still had super low glutathione.. OK next day, another IV. I spent most of the time in the bathroom with this one, then the next day another... By day 5 I was CURED ! No drugs, just cured. Victory! It would usually have taken four weeks, prednisond, atascol, apriso, pain pill s and rest but glutathione did it!
I am going to dose regularly now. Hope that helps
