I've found this forum so essential in my healing journey and you guys are so
open and supportive.
I wanted to share my experiences too incase anyone is interested or has similar experiences!
Background: ulcerative proctitis (signs of colitis) started on Pentasa both oral then suppository, side effects too bad. Stopped but symptoms still pretty mild, 1-4BM a day depending on what I eat, blood and mucus, occasional urgency (again depending on what I eat). Nb when I have a trigger food with no medication it is more like 8+ urgent agony blood and mucus aplenty.
Thus I figured I could attack this thing naturally.
Now on day 4 of GAPS diet with sodium butyrate enemas twice daily.
Well bleeding has stopped!!
Mucus remains, with or without BM.
Mainly without.. Constipation now whereas previously I had diarrhea.
Ravenously hungry all the time.. Seem to be gaining weight (weight I don't need!)
Energy levels much better now I cut out sugar/grains
Brain fog terrible
Tried a fleet enema last night to get things moving.. Ouch! But it did work.. And I was up 20 times afterwards to urinate.
Next morning horrendous! Exhausted and aching limbs. Bit more diarrhea.
Felt loads better after tons of water and food.
Obviously the enema was not the best idea.. But I have a long history of IBS-constipation so I KNOW unless I bring back sugars and grains I will not have a Natural BM for a long long time...
Anyway I will keep posting back.. You never know I might work this thing out!
(My plan B: fecal transplant)
