I remind everyone again -- please keep conversation about personal conventional medicine protocols out of this thread. There are hundreds of other discussions about that. We are not here to debate modern medicine's efficacy. My post above about how it didn't work for me was about my case only. I am not telling other people what to do with their treatment plans, but this thread is not for tweaking conventional medical protocols that people are using. Please cease debates about this, I am not interested.
First of all, you are not the owner of Healingwell and therefore you don't get to dictate what people can or can't post in a particular thread. If you post in a public forum, people will have different viewpoints and people will question and debate.
I am like the canary in the mine. I have tried EVERYTHING under the sun since 2015 to stop my flares.
Secondly, you did not try EVERYTHING. You did not try JAK-inhibitors or S1P-modulators and I'm assuming you probably didn't try stelara because it was licensed for UC only after you stopped trying biologics. That is entirely your prerogative and I can understand after failing a long list of drugs you can be weary and cynical and search for alternatives. But don't claim you've tried everything when you haven't.
This is not a quack theory, it's cellular biology and redox medicine, something that is a relatively new field and is why most GI doctors have no clue about it.
The fact that oxidative stress contributes to disease has been known for decades and is not a new field. A five second google of "oxidative stress ulcerative colitis" will bring back a ton of publications that are not related to Pravda. Here is one example:

Look, I get that you found a protocal that worked for you, and you're excited about
it and want to share it with the wider community so that you can help other people. I get that. I have also been a hair's breadth away from surgery until I found a treatment that worked at the 11th hour. I also like to share my story. But making sweeping statements about
how "conventional" medicine works and the knowledge of the GI community just undermines your credibility. It's an exaggeration or distortion of the truth and is not necessary for making your point.
I know that the European market is very pro-pharmaceutical and they restrict alternative medicine
How do you know this? Europe is made up of many countries, each with their own healthcare systems and protocols. I saw an Ayurvedic doctor while trying alternatives to treat my UC and the consultation costs were covered by my health insurance. The point is, if you post something like this which I know not to be true (or an exaggeraton of the truth), it makes me doubt the rest of what you're saying.
And what I can say with total confidence about this method, is that I'm not even worried my UC will come back.
I genuinely hope you're right about
this and wish you many years of continued good health. But the fact is you've been in remission for about
6 months, you are a sample of size n=1, and I don't see how you can possibly know what your body is going to do in a few (or many) years from now.
