Actually I tried something similar 20 years ago. But I ended up with totally different outcome.
At that time I was convinced that the real cause of my UC was in my mind.
I thought that my general emotional instability, my fears an anxiety triggered my relapses of UC.
So I decided to give up meds, doctors and c-scopes and started to work on my psyche.
I tried variety of approaches: relaxations, meditations, joga, CBT, psychotherapy...
I tried alternative medicine as well. I even made homeopathic tinctures myself.
I tried herbs, probiotics, supplements and so on. I kept doing this for several years.
Then I got Lyme disease. I felt really sick after antibiotics therapy in hospital.
I was not sure if it was due Lyme disease or UC. So I decided for colonoscopy.
Doctor found 7cm carcinoma in my colon. It was shock for me! I thought that
this was not gonna happen to me. I was convinced that I was on way to cure myself from UC.
Fortunately this story has good end. Surgery was successful and I lost only 10-15 cm of my colon.
Since then I have been using maintenance dose of 5ASA all the time. And I hope I will be able to
continue taking 5ASA for the rest of my life
5ASA have decent anticancer effect in colon.
