I am one of those desperate people. I have lived with ulcerative colitis for over 20 years. My body doesn't like every medication that has been prescribed for me so far. Some give me diarrhea, some stomach cramps. I have been in the hospital several times over flare ups, once for bleeding. When the GI doctor wanted to prescribe medication that severely compromised my immune system in order to get this under control, I contacted Dr. Snow. My insurance has paid out thousands of dollars and I have ingested thousands of dollars of AMA approved medications.
Dr. Snow charged me a one time fee of $295 and I am in touch with him every few weeks via phone. I have spent a little over $1000 on supplements. Now, almost a year later, no raucos medications, not rectal bleeding, no diarrhea, no inflammation. He expects that I will be cured and off prescribed supplements withing a month or so.
It is nice that you want to comment on this, but it sounds like none of you know what you are talking about or have experienced it.
I recommend Dr. Snow highly. For the first time in over 20 years, I have no symptoms.... without compromising my immune system.
Of course Gastro-Interologists don't think this will work. They don't want it to work because there's no money in it.
Which medications did you try and what did the doctor offer you that would "severely compromise" your immune system? I've taken 5 different immunosuppressants in the past 4 years and none of them left me "severely compromised". In fact the only infections I've had in the past 4 years have been a few colds and one minor skin infection that got better without antibiotics.
Statements like " it sounds like none of you know what you are talking about
or have experienced it." are pretty arrogant and disrespectful and undermine the authenticity of your post.
Not to mention being in hospital "once for bleeding". Doesn't sound like classic UC.
Also, spending $1000 a year on supplements is A LOT.
In most parts of the world gastroenterologists do not make money from expensive medications, so that argument just holds zero weight.
