I am looking for an open minded GI doctor in the Oklahoma City area. Anyone have a good one????
I don't want to getting prescriptions for prednisone and other conventional drugs because the side effects are just as bad as the UC for me. I need a GI who will listen to me and be open to alternative therapies. I have maintained remission before while just being on digestive enzymes, chlorella, and probiotics for good measure, but I recently (5 weeks ago) gave birth via C-section and started flaring 2 weeks ago worse than ever. This has proven to be a big challenge with a newborn and active 4 year old. I need to get better to take care of my children as my husband needs to be at work. I am pretty sure delivery has upset my system (hormones and meds) I don't believe that conventional meds are the only way to achieve remission, its just the only thing the doctors will talk to you about (at least the ones I've talked to).
