I rid myself of this lifetime debilitation by isolating the triggers. In my case it was Severve Chronic Ulcerative Colitis. I was given the option of a Colostomy or a lifespan of less that 5 years in 1962. The only things that seem to have changed since then is nerves are not considered a causitive factor. Donation of blood is now considered acceptable. I beat this disease in 1968 and it was quite clearly dietry, but the Medical Profession will not accept this to be the case to this day. I now have more than a casual gasp on the inflammatory paths Omega-3 & Omega-6 and the Inflammatory PG2'S. The Insulin turn on of D5 and A.A. Glucagon turns off of D5 Resulting in The very beneficial PG1'S. The PG3'S from EPA and PGE1 inhibit the Inflammatory pathway to the PG2'S. Restict Carbohydrates to Vegetables only without the starchy ones and a High Protein intake. Drink only filtered or fresh pure spring water, no other fluids. If you wish Iwill supply a comprehensive dietry and supplement plan that will put this to rest for good. Remember grains and their byproducts with all forms of sugars can induce this Inflammatory pathway.
