hello my name is matthew i was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in march 2007, this has been a nightmare as i had pains in the abdomen, cramps constant urge to go to the bathroom, anxiety, bleeding and depression, predisolone thank goodness got me through most of the time till mid 2008 as i was trying to come offf the steroid.ive seen so many doctors, had colonoscopies,hospitilised twice,tried nearly all medications that my doc new of i wasnt getting fully fit couldnt shrug it. i heard rumours that its caused by a virus, however i went to see a good dietician-in which he performed a allergy test.now breifly my past included salmamella poisoning for 2 weeks in 2003-2004 a few years ago and was pumped with antie biotics- since then my immune system and body was not the same , developed a rash the following year x ma type all on legs back it was pretty bad i became concerned baring my once great skin in public.scratches itchy sores that would not go away for up to 6 monthes i had this problem. then i developed blood in feaces , like most men can be -i was stubborn did nothing about it , assumed it go away. this happened prob year before i was hit hard by the full force of colitismy diet was pretty bad , im now on a diet advised by my dietician no wheat, dairy ,suger,yeast, or any junkfood, and even certain fruits and veg such as no strawberry grapes apples oranges pineapples even tap water caused problems and or reactions to these foods , now the reason being he says it is a yeast overgrowth and need to detoxify my body he gave me some deitry minerals and told me to keep off the foods for at least 6 monthes that is very strict but ill try 40-50 days and see how i go, i started day after xmas 2008 and going to mid feb - ive started i think to go through that reaction the yeast dye off feel sick came down with sore throat in a bad way but maybe the good way as the toxons from the dead yeast are expelled and hopefully my colitis goes with it the aim is to rebuid my immune system im currently not on any medication NOTHING, im doin fine and can only get better as i buid my immunity up which has taken a batterin over the last few years with drugs and food poisoning and steroids i should start to be able to tolerate my favorite foods again , but in MODERATION so there is no more build up and my clitis or other problems start occurring again due to poor diet.
