I have had great success in treating what appeared to have been a 6-month long Ulcerative Colitis induced by the side effects of an acne medication (Accutane / Isotretinoin).
Background medical history:
1 year ago (Feb 2017), I was put on a 6-month plan of this prescript
ion medication named Isotretinoin for acne. A few weeks after that, I started to experience gastrointestinal problems (e.g. watery stool, hemorrhoid, and sometimes bloody stool). I stopped taking the medication and started eating yogurt and drinking probiotics, and within 2-3 days, the stool no longer had blood. I took a break from the meds, and resumed it after a few weeks, and just cycled on and off every 2 weeks.
Then around in July of last year (5 months in), I began having severe symptoms like I had before. At this point, I quit the Accutane completely. I also resumed the yogurt and probiotics. Everything seemed to have been back normal again after a week, except for a mild case of chronic hemorrhoid.
Recurrence of symptoms:
Approximately two weeks ago, all the symptoms, including DAILY bloody stool and rectal bleeding, came back without a clear cause. However, this time, the symptoms did not improve at all with probiotics. After two weeks, I was faced with a dilemma: 1) Seek conventional treatment that would involve the use of more synthetic medications (whose side effects were the cause of my problem), or 2) Seek a treatment that involves the use of natural medicine.
THE SEARCH FOR A NATURAL REMEDY AND THE CURE!!:
I started doing tons of research, and tried everything from turmeric to omega-3 (fish / flax seed oil), and combined everything with a daily eating of up to 64 oz of yogurt (!) and NOTHING WORKED!
Fortunately, I came across a research article on Nigella sativa (black cumin seed) oil and its ability to inhibit the growth of Closstridium difficile and other pathogenic microbes and viruses. This gave me the confidence to give this oil a try. I started with 2 teaspoons of N. sativa oil (100% pure) at breakfast, lunch, dinner, and before bed. To my amazement, within just two days (!!!), my stool is no longer as bloody and the rectal bleeding is nearly gone!
If all of the conventional treatments are not helping, TRY THIS! This oil has been used in food in the Mediterranean, Middle East, India, and South Asia for centuries, and it is VERY safe!!!
It's easy to get. I got mine on ebay, 2 fl oz (60ml) for $6.99. This is a very small amount and was gone in 3 days. I suggest you go to an Indian market look for this oil (ask for Kalonji oil) or go to an Middle Eastern market and ask for "black cumin seed" or "Habbat ul Sawda" oil (the name that it is known by).
Sorry for the long post and the rambling. Feel free to ask me anything relating to this.
Best of luck and God bless!
