Just wanted to update, still flare free from Feb 2014, since starting LDN.
Each passing flare my bowel movements are better and better.
Added UC Relapse Prevention formula (Heron Botanicals), PC Phosphatidyl Choline (BodyBio) and Quercetin to the list.
Did blood work again and i'm allergic to Dairy protein and gluten. Still GF and mostly dairy free.
2 formed BM's daily.
Still low ferritin levels :(
I had to visit a gastroenterologist just to get a script
for Ascaol refills and he's 'surprised' i'm doing well, but actually agreed not to rock the boat and try to prescribe meds and such. He hopes to cross path with my naturopath someday, LOL. I said how i'd like to continue with an integrative approach.
BM's aren't always 100% good, but i have to say, i'm doing better than years prior to knowing I had UC or whatever this is. I really recommend doing research from both sides of the health spectrum (conventional medicine and alternative), experimenting with foods, getting blood work done and never losing the willpower to work with this real struggle.
God bless, really. I wish nothing but happiness and improvement for everyone the year ahead. I never thought i'd be where i am in my life. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me. :) I owe a lot to Healing Well for your help too.
