You can look up my past posts... I have had amazing success with acupuncture. The first time I went 4 hours before I need to go to the bathroom. That was a major accomplishment for me. I continued to go 2x - 3x week. I went into remission, kept going and stopped when school let out for the summer. I didn't have anyone to watch my kids... and of course, I thought, "I'm in remission!". Well within a couple of weeks the bleeding started again. I just got my kids back to school and am ready to start back up with the acupuncture.
I cannot stress this enough: MAKE SURE THE ACUPUNCTURIST IS ACTUALLY A CHINESE DOCTOR. DON'T GO TO A CHIROPRACTOR WANNA-BE. GET SOMEONE WHO ACTUALLY STUDIED THIS AND IS DEGREED! OTHERWISE YOU'RE WASTING YOUR TIME AND MONEY.
Diagnosed with severe ulcerative proctitis - 2003.
Remission until late 2006, Flared again from 11/06 to 4/07:
Currently in remission!! YEAH!
Doing acupuncture once a week.
I take Immunplex (multivitamin), Vit E, Fish Oil, Probiotic Eleven, Slippery Elm. Also started taking pH Balance Green because of inflammation in the finger joints (which I believe to be all connected to the proctitis inflammation as well... inflammation just moving around until I get healed!)
Had allergy testing done as well.... allergic to cow's milk and shellfish (no outward symptoms of this at all), but laid off those foods as well.
