Hi everyone,

I recently had a colonoscopy done and had a consultation with my GI about the results...

She said that the biopsies show that the lining of the mucosa is nearly all worn away and that there could be a chance of a rupture if I am not careful.

She has suggested surgery, but I am not keen on it.

Is there a way of repairing the mucosa lining so that surgery is not needed?

There are natural supplements that can help repair mucosa and the gut lining. I use the following:

L-glutamine

MucosaHeal

George's aloe vera

Putting yourself on enteral nutrition for a while to allow the bowels to rest and heal might be helpful, too. Absorb Plus is a formula designed specifically for IBD.
