There is no point in talking about mesalamine or other 5-ASAs. Although they have a mild antioxidant function, it is insufficient for a lot of UC sufferers because the action is topical. 5-ASAs do not interact with the intracellular machinery that regulate H2O2. It can only possibly neutralize some topical H2O2. And because they are derivatives of salicylic acid, they cause similar side effects for some people in terms of disturbance to the GI lining. When I took 5-ASAs orally, I had stomach bleeding. When I took them rectally, my rectum became so inflamed that I had a rectal prolapse. I realize they work for some people but for those of us who are highly refractory, there is literally no point.
Again, the usual suspects can't seem to understand what is making people upset. They think it's that we don't want Pravda criticized whatsoever, when actually it's that you're vile, vicious bullies who are personally attacking posters on this forum for simply saying that modern medicine has a poor track record -- because it does. But the responses to simple discussion have been sociopathic. They are vicious bullies who attack your humanity rather than discuss ideas, and then when you call them on it, they attack you more.
If you weren't so defensive and personally attacking people, there would not have been hostilities. You started it. So you can stop at any time and we can resume our adult conversation about treatment alternatives. Seriously, just stop.
Conventional medicine does not work on my UC. I literally have zero interest in talking about it. It's useless and holds no interest for me. I have been researching alternatives for years now. That's where my interest lies. Not because I'm "anti-modern medicine" but because it doesn't work. I will not continue to waste my life looking at what conventional medicine does. If it works for you, great. All the power to you. I am here to discuss alternatives, which is why it's offensive when the usual suspects show up to change the goal posts and start personally attacking me, calling me a "quack" and accusing me of thinking HW is my little kingdom just because I want one thread dedicated to discussing an alternative without a bunch of karens showing up to try and persuade people to talk about conventional medicine. I am innocent of wrongdoing. I am simply a patient looking for alternatives for my disease. I do not want a colectomy. I want to live, I don't want to die.
Now go away. Seriously... leave me alone. You are irrelevant.
You are calling people a bunch of "Karens" and "irrelevant" This will be your second warning. The owner of this forum already gave you one warning.if u warn Van Jordan please warn the other members on the other side. thank you
