Try Kefir. It has been around since recorded history .
Kefir has many more friendly types of bacteria (probiotics)and yeast
then you can buy in a pill. The good bacteria will colonize in your colon
and that is the mucus. I have been drinking it for three months now and have been
off the meds for about
two weeks. I have been on meds since 1990 and every time
previously I tried to get off it was instant flare. When I first started drinking it
I got mini flares AKA in bathroom for about
a few hours or a day here and there.
I think it is possible when the bacteria was colonizing in my colon and reached an area of
flare or ulcers it would cause a bad bacteria die off and aggrivated my colon but
that part is just my theory. My sore joints have gone away also.
I am going to wait a few more months and have a colonoscopy. My colon has always
had ulcers since 1990 when I get a scope but I this is the best my colon has felt so I
am actually looking forward to the colonoscopy. I can't say for sure it is the Kefir(probiotics)
but it is my gut feeling. If I stay in remission for over a year of meds, wich has never happened to me even on meds,
then I will be leaning more towards it was the Kefir.
