I have been there several times. I stopped my meds because I was afraid of side effects. Then I had wonderful 1-4 months period of superior health. I felt invincible. I felt I could make it without meds. After this wonderful period UC stroke back again. Even harder than before. Always, no exception. There is minority of people who can make ti without meds. My GI told me that only two people were able to make it without meds during his carrier. He is now retired.
Do not waste time on conspiracy theories. Yes, there is a corruption in healthcare industry like in every other industry. If you look in history we live in golden age. Nowadays we have the best health care ever. Pharmaceutical companies compete to develop new drugs that are more effective and more safe. If they succeed they earn lot of money selling this new drug. Yes, it is big money game. If they want more money they have to come out with something better than others. Claim "pharmaceutical companies want to keep us sick" does not make sense for me.
