I just want share my experiences with UC here. I have been suffering from bloody and mucus stool, urgency to use bathroom for one and half year. I had colonoscopy done twice. First time, they call it hemorrhoids. Two months earlier, I was diagnosed with UC, but proctitis only.
I took some rapid actions as my life was very miserable. I tried 5ASA, it only can maitain my proctitis(UC) from acting up. It couldn't cure the problem. Plus, side-effects can be scary according to online messages. So I quit the 5ASA after 2 weeks trial.
I tried a Chinese Medicine called Run Chang Wan for 2 weeks, which helped some. I may help me more if continue it. but I stopped it as I wasn't sure how long a person can be on this Run Chang Wan.
I tried Bee Propolis for 10 days. I worked like miracle. I am almost healed! But bee proctitis caused pain and itch on my kidney and bladder area. I had to stop bee proctitis yesterday.
To maintain my healthy status now, I am trying Aloe Vera now. I will keep you guys updated here. I also quit my favorite spicy food and gluten food. And I drink a lot of water.
What work for you? Each person got UC for different reasons. You have to try different experiments to see which remedy work for you. It must to have a daily diary,records which one works, which food upsets your guts.
I visited different GI doctors already. There is no cure for this as my doctors told me. It seems like Chinese Medicine has a cure for this per my online research. Chinese Medicine can't cure many things. But it has a good wholistic approach to fix our body. This is what Western Medicine needs to improve on. But you have to find a good Chinese doc in your area. This is my first time visit here. Thank you all for your support.
