Websites & Blogs

Below is a list of websites and blogs of folks who healed their Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s through alternative medicine. In my long journey to recovery I came across a lot of people who healed their illness (UC/Crohn’s) through alternative medicine. Now that I know where to look it is easy to find these resources

God and Ulcerative Colitis

Faith is a difficult topic to write about. At least it is for me. If you have it, you know what I am talking about. If you don’t, it may not make sense for you. But I put this website together to share all that helped me with my struggle against ulcerative colitis. While I

EFT and Ulcerative Colitis

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a type of psychological acupressure and part of what is called energy psychology. While it makes use of the same energy flows known in traditional acupuncture, EFT does not involve needles. Instead, gentle tapping with your fingertips is used while you think and speak about your specific problem. I am

Psychology, Emotions and Ulcerative Colitis

The conventional view is that our psychological problems and our emotions have no impact in causing an illness and certainly no role in healing an illness. Based on my own experience and research, I don’t believe that this is true. I grew up in an abusive household. On the outside, everything looked great but once

Psyllium Husk

We don’t eat enough fiber. I heard that message all my life, and usually thought “Yeah, whatever.” That, as it turns out, was a mistake. Fiber is extremely important even if you are healthy, and it is even more important if you have ulcerative colitis. So Why Is Fiber important? Think of your colon as

Anti-Fungal Diet

The anti-fungal diet coupled with the anti-fungal medication as proposed by Doug Kaufmann in his book “The Fungus Link” really healed my ulcerative colitis. My holistic doctor recommended this approach to me, and it worked like a charm. I was initially on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet which had reduced my symptoms considerably but I was still

Step-By-Step Guide To Healing Ulcerative Colitis

As I put all the information that I learned in the process of healing my ulcerative colitis on this website, I realized that it is a lot and can be confusing. You may be wondering, “Where do I start? What do I do first?” Now, as I said before, the purpose of my website is

Ulcerative Colitis Diet: Why It Is So Hard To Eat Stuff That Heals

Why do we all love bad food and dislike healthy food? Is our body stupid? After all, we get constantly told to eat healthy food. Why isn’t our body programmed so that we WANT to healthy stuff? Have we been constructed wrongly? What is wrong with us? Hmm, that is an interesting question. Part of

Ulcerative Colitis Diet: Stevia

Let’s face it. We all like sweet stuff, but while healing ulcerative colitis, sugar and carbs on either diet (Specific Carbohydrate Diet and Anti-Fungal Diet) are a huge no no. So what should we do? Of course, we can just “will-power” through, but realistically that rarely works. If you want to stop doing something, like

Ulcerative Colitis Diet: Yogurt

Yogurt is very good for you and it is extremely important to heal you and keep you healthy, particularly if you have ulcerative colitis. The problem is that a lot of commercial yogurts may taste and look like yogurt, but they are really not that helpful or beneficial and may even harm you. Let me

Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD)

This is the diet that I discovered on my own on the internet before I found my wonderful holistic doctor, who put me on the Anti-Fungal Diet. This diet reduced my symptoms dramatically from about 10 (bathroom ten times a day) to about 3 (bathroom three times a day), but I still had diarrhea and

Why Are We So Sick?

In terms of life expectancy we (USA) are number 43 in the world (source) with a life expectancy of around 79 years. The top 3 countries with the longest life expectancy are Monaco (89 years), Japan (85 years), and Singapore (85 years). We are only number 43 is terms of life expectancy, but we take

Ulcerative Colitis And Your Heart And Soul

You will need to get a support infrastructure in place to help you through the dark times, and there will be dark times as you heal. Let’s talk about the dark times: First there is the change. Changing what you eat and drink is not easy for anyone. Let’s be frank. It will be brutal.

Ulcerative Colitis And Your Mind

“All battles are lost or won in the mind – Joan of Arc 1412; France.” If you think you can’t do something, you are correct. You won’t be able to do. If you think you can, you just might. How you think determines your future as it determines your actions. For example, say your child

How Healthy Is Your Water?

I used to think that tap water is just fine. After all it is inspected and tested by the government, and why would they allow anything that could harm us? Those of you who just burst out laughing for my naivety, you are right. I was stupid. Once I got sick, I discussed what I
