Last year I moved with my horse and husband to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina.
The reason for mentioning my horse is that where I now board him has turned into a blessing on many fronts, one of them most unexpected.
A lady boarding there used to suffer from ulcerative colitis.
Yes, used to.
For eighteen years this lady had battled to be a good mom to her two daughters, but so often was unable to take them anywhere or participate in their activities because of her debilitating disease.
Those of you who have, or know someone who has ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s know exactly what I’m talking about.
An Act of Desperation
Like so many of us, she’d tried everything she could to heal her body, but nothing had worked.
Then she heard about a man who has devised a blood test that can pinpoint to 95% accuracy what foods are triggering the symptoms. Most of the current blood tests available are ineffective or only 35% accurate, such as the one my son took.
The protocol is not cheap, but a one-time payment covers you for life.
My friend talks about taking out the money in cash and meeting the man at a gas station – very cloak and dagger! But in fact, it was the only place they could get together as he was on the road, and it was her only opportunity to pay him and set up the blood test.
He was her last hope.
My friend’s blood was tested for over 200 foods, including herbs and spices. She was sent the results and now knew which food items to avoid and which were safe.
She also agreed to go on a specific diet for 90 days to see if it helped.
Within a week all her symptoms were gone.
Yes, gone – after eighteen years of ulcerative colitis and multiple hospitalizations and almost dying several times.
She no longer experiences urgency, despite the fact that all the literature I’ve read suggests that once the sphincter muscles have been over stretched, they can’t be restored.
Her colonoscopies are clean with no sign of the disease.
My friend still has to make sure she stays away from the wrong foods. She got food poisoning over the winter and her symptoms returned, but she was mentored throughout by the man who’d tested her blood. He told her to hang in there and that she would get better. She did.
Her new diet is purely plant-based, and it’s hard for her to keep on weight, as you have to eat a lot of plants to do so!
But she doesn’t mind. It’s worth it to be symptom free and able to live a normal life in all other respects.
I was so excited to hear about this protocol and contacted the man to find out what’s involved and the cost. His protocol is very expensive, and at present that is putting off my son from going ahead and getting the blood test.
He’s also understandably skeptical about it, after everything he’s tried already, but I am in high hopes that he will go ahead eventually and have it done.
Right now, he is still not in a flare, for which I am so grateful! But he has to be careful about when and what he eats, as he still has the urgency issues to cope with.
In the meantime, I feel I shouldn’t keep this information to myself, as my goal is to give hope to others dealing with this horrible disease.
If you are interested in contacting the wonderful man who devised the blood test and protocol, please let me know via the contact page. He doesn’t have an online presence on purpose, as he has seen too many of his colleagues who practice natural medicine get shut down by mainstream Western doctors.
