gosh that's so good to hear, but for me, I have taken asacol, pentasa and colozal and every time, I have diarreah, headaches, and I'm so tired that I don't get off the couch. Right now I'm on supplements from a Naturalpath Dr. and I've been off meds for 18 days so far. Do you think the medication is out of my system? I'm getting better slowly, each day. No blood at all anymore. The explosive diarreah is gone too. I still have diarreah every day, but stool too. Yesterday when I was driving I felt the diarreah hit a nerve in my butt and I though oh no I'm not going to make it. I was calm and this is huge for me. I had no problem driving another 10 miles to a gas station. Before, I would have never had made it pass the "oh no" feeling. I'm driving my car these days and not thinking about my butt or a bathroom, this is huge! When you committ to a natural pathway, you have to give it 4 months at least to see a big improvement. I've been on my supplments one month and one week and off meds 18 days. I am starting to feel better as a whole. My main thing was my nerves. I was in this cycle worrying about my butt, then it would effect me gut and then I would have to go to the bathroom. Brain, butt and gut and I feel like the cycle is breaking.
