Hi, My name is Lisa and I have just been diagnosed with AS. I am seeking alternative medicine (also diet, supplements) that work. I am very concerned about the use of anti-inflamatory drugs since they damage stomach and intestines. I think my as is linked to a 2 and 1/2 year infection (parasite) of dientamoeba fragilis. Has anyone worked on checking for Klebsiella bacteria as the cause of their AS and any one who eliminated it and got better? I also am interested if I can make contact with others here in the Netherlands regarding alternative treatments as well as hearing from my fellow U.S. citizens. I am 47 years old.
