for those who have their colons taken out and the whole reversal deal,  I was hoping you guys could help me...
I would like to know what I could do to prevent pouchitis, I hate prescription meds... we all do.  So the best thing to do is prevent it, and need some help with that.  Any information would be helpful.

I don't take any presciptions - I go all natural. To each his own. If you are interested in the natural approach I will tell you that different things help me through each flare-up. One time I stopped it with aloe vera juice taken 5-6 times a day. I rapidly raise my blood count by drinking liquid chlorophyll. I read about a woman that cured her colitis with vitamin E enemas, but I haven't tried it. Nature's Sunshine has several products for the colon that are very good. There are many supplements that are beneficial. You may have to research it and do a trial and error process or see an herbalist in your area.

I have had my jpouch for 7 years and have not had an incident of pouchitis. I take one capsule of Flora Q per day. You can try other probiotics like Culturelle or PB8. I have taken those too at times. You might wander over to and meet other fellow pouchers. There are only two of us on this board.

dx proctitis in 1987
dx UC in 1991, was stable until 1998
1998 started prednisone, asacol, pentasa, nortriptylene, ativan, 6MP, rowasa enemas and suppositories, hydrocortisone enemas, tried the SCD diet, being a vegetarian, omega 3s, flax, pranic healing, yoga, acupuncture, probiotics
