I believe we've already covered all of these points, prior. Again, in green below:
I am not trying to control I just have huge anxiety over this. This isn't about getting the scope. These things are causing me worry:
1. That it might affect my final stature as a grown up. At 15, you've already grown the majority of your adult height. Any growth at this point is very, very slow in rate and might add only a few centimeters to your total height. Can malnutrition from IBD slow growth, yes but only during severe and prolonged flares. You're not in one, so don't worry.
2. That it might affect the size of my 'John Thomas' I'm sure that's already as big as it gets. I seriously doubt uc would impact it.
3. That I won't be able to put on muscle or lose it quickly. I've already explained rapid weight loss during severe flares. When you're pooping 20+ times a day, you gain little nutrients from food and are too sore to eat really anything. It's essentially a prolonged fast.
Also I have this video link for you guys https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cONYR7vAD-A
it is a video by a doctor called Dr Natasha McBride. She explains how food is the best medicine and how an imbalance of gut flora can cause autoimmune disorders and mental disorders. if you go on a GAPS diet for 2 years and heal the gut flora, it cures these problems. I thought she was a quack at first but too many people are saying this. Someone mentioned Jack Lallane. Well He said the exact same thing as her almost word for word about the relationship between food and the immune and nervous system. It is nearly 50 minutes long but sooo worth it just cut out processed food also and eat organic to feed the good bacteria and restore the balance of gut flora.
Way better than taking meds and healthier. I know this isn't a problem for me because we get free meds in England, but you guys in America must pay or be insured. I also found it funny how the company that makes asacol couldn't stress enough to keep taking it even when feeling well.There's hundreds of theories on what causes and cures IBD, individually they make sense within the limited set of variables studied, often these studies contradict each other. There's a ton of alternatives and they work for some but not all. The standard procedure is to use medications and explore alternatives, should they not work. The majority of patients are able to use mild anti-inflammatory medications, we'll tolerated, few if any serious side effects. The minority are able to use alternatives exclusively. No guarantees to work, everyone finds different ones work for them. It takes a lot of time and expirementation to find what works for you.
