Can you walk through what you did for healing? What worked and what didn't
I too am trying to heal naturally so far so goo
I still have the scars of PAN-Colitis. I would assume I will always have PAN-UC. As we all know UC can come back for unexplained reasons so that is why my fingers are crossed going forward.
Pride goeth before the fall.. I am aiming to avoid the fall.
I had been leaning on my GP who allowed me to direct my own care but I knew that was not the best solution and that getting the GI to work with me was more appropriate.
3 Consecutive stellar lab results seemed to get them to take me seriously. Data and facts.
It was only hours after I left that I began to reflect on this as a short term triumph, we all know UC could come roaring back.
Primarily I teased out foods that alarm my system chiefly:
-no dairy ( cheese seems ok ),
-NO bread ( I continue to eat a lot of Sprouts natural
-no alcohol but a week long binge had zero impact just not healthy
-no whey protein and synthetic food/drinks.
Secondarily I consume things that have a healing aspect :
+Reward Pea protein
+Meat, beef or chicken
+and limited fruit
+Ashwaghand EVERY single night for relaxation and inflammation suppression
+Sulfasalazine when I remember to take it.
When in trouble Psyllium Seed powder, Potassium Sorbate. VSL#3DS, Qing Dai.
If I think of more I will return and edit.
When we first moved away I cycled through every natural protein out there and nearly flared until I found Reward. The constraints of driving 2-4 hours every day forced me to be disciplined. I have moved back and am on city water apparently no need to use the filter but am across town so perhaps got away from something that had been piped into the 3 homes I lived at during all of UC on that side of town. Town is exploding with growth so I might even be on a different water treatment plant in the newly built home.
The last BIG change I recall is giving up on bread. Gluten-free potato bread you name it they all seem to bother my system and potato bread tasted so good I would eat a whole loaf in one day so I just STOPPED all bread. Not all grains but all BREAD.
In the new house I have a Master Retreat/Office with its own sink and cabinets ( wet bar for drinkers ) and the idea was to get the 100 supplements out of the main level kitchen....I really do not reach for anything but Ashwaghanda now so it will just be storage until I figure out if I need them long term.
