Ulcerative Colitis Remedy

Posted by Anonymous (Anonymous) on 07/14/2011

Dear Ted

I've just spent 4 weeks in hospital where doctors have, using drugs, successfully treated my severe ulcerative colitis. A mix of steroids, pentasa, cyclosporine and azathioprine.

Since getting out of hospital I've been looking at your contributions to Earth Clinic and in particular your remedy of "1/16 teaspoon of zinc oxide plus 1/2 teaspoon of milk of magnesia plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1 glass of water taken twice a day."

I am having difficulty with tracking down the zinc oxide. At www.earthclinic.com/supplements.html it says "3. Absolutely avoid all ingredients in oxide form. Oxide forms of mineral include magnesium oxide, zinc oxide, etc. They don't dissolve in water and will generally stay in their original form. It is poorly absorbed." The only zinc oxide I can find is from pottery supplier and the Health Information sheet states:

Ingestion: The product is of low solubility in body fluids and it is likely to be of low toxicity

Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting, rinse mouth thoroughly, drink plenty of water and seek medical advice

Ted, is this the right zinc oxide for me or do you have any suggestions where I could purchase some?

If you want to use zinc oxide, you can find them in a chemist shop is one option. You can try the pottery in small quantities if you want.

The ulcerative colitis responds well to aloe vera oil and humic acid, and somewhat to fulvic acid. It also responds well to cinnamon oil. The ulcerative colitis and crohn's disease is actually a bacteria found in the milk, which resist all forms to pasteurization and conventional sterilization methods, the bacterium is mycobacterium paratuberculosis and another is mycobacterium avium complex (MAC). These two is found in at least over 60% of all milk products, but are also found in many foods and go undetected. They resist all forms of antibiotics. A combination of antibiotics may responds, but it responds also to natural therapies, such as humic acid and cinnamon oil. It helps with the aloe vera in regenerative issues of the colon. The mycobacterium avium responds well to Lugol's iodine and PVP-I (Betadine), which can be rectally applied mixed with water or consumed a couple of drops. The mycobacterium paratuberculosis responds well I believe to a common cinnamon oil and humic acid in general. My remedy is not perfect as most people are just happy with this remedy and never proceed to go further and get their life back together. Most treatments last an average of two months for a ulcerative colitis cure, using natural therapies. It's actually a real health issue here, but most health authorities refuses to acknowledge it, primarily because it resists heat and conventional methods of killing bacteria. Some of this are also found on organically and not so organically grown plants. My guess is a simple antiseptic procedures is betadine and humic acid, as a method for disinfectants of plants and milk products, or you can just supplement them with Lugol's and humic acid, perhaps some cinnamon oil. There are other methods, but I have to test those out first, such as gallium nitrate, low dose natrexone, and others.

It is a major health issue for these bacterium. You were lucky to respond to multiple antibiotics because they don't usually work. Steroids merely suppress and overactive immune system. A close relative of this is responsible for must rheumatoid arthritis too.

I can get hold of Lugol's iodine and PVP-I (Betadine) too and you say it can be rectally applied mixed with water. Would you suggest that I try get it up the rectum as far as possible, rather like pushing a suppository up? The alternative you suggest is that it is "consumed a couple of drops". You mean taken through the mouth (orally) and if so, do you mean a couple of drops of both Lugol's iodine and PVP-I (Betadine).

You mention also aloe vera to regenerate the colon and I am taking this as a gel in capsule form, 5000mg a day. Should I consume more?

Finally, I am taking the drugs my doctor has given me still: steroids, pentasa, cyclosporine and azathioprine. Steroids are being reduced and I am stopping at the end of this week. Cyclosporine and azathioprine are both immunosuppressives, mainly taken by people who have had organ or marrow transplants. I will stop taking cyclosporine in a month's time. Pentasa has the ingredient mesalazine in it. As I am being taken off two of my drugs and there is a chance that my colitis will return I am looking to replace them with natural therapies. Do you think it would be OK for me to take the humic acid and cinnamon oil, Lugol's iodine and Betadine whilst also taking these drugs? I probably will try apple cider vinegar mixed with apple cider vinegar too.

Lots of questions and I appreciate you can only give guidance!"


08/09/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Much of the ulcerative colitis treatment are different for everyone. The ones I helped is a doozy (the worse possible ulcerative colitis), and the two main things, without getting confused with the various supplements out there is just two things, aloe vera oil and humic acid being the most important issues. The humic acid is like charcoal that is touted to eliminate bleeding and lessen the diarrhea, but humic acid is better, in that it provides the essential minerals necessary for a more complete recovery from mineral deficiencies. Therefore I obtained at least two sources of humic acid to help the recovery, to give it a more complete spectrum of minerals. The aloe vera oil is seen to helped accelerate the recovery. My case did initially used all the immune suppressive drugs, until they decided not to take it at all, before they even met me. So i was without any of this immunosuppressive drugs anyway. It was their decision in any case, those are two things that helped. Keeping focus on dose and frequency is the key, the aloe vera is always mixed with humic acid. The aloe vera oil is between 1/4 to 1 teaspoon and humic acid is between 1/16 to 1/8 teaspoon. It's always on the low side and the remedies are not controversial, even by conventional standards. The B12 is given, when needed by injections. Within three months (on average) they were able to go out and live a normal life, and that's the worse case scenario.

Aloe vera is always given in oil directly and mixed with humic acid, is usually given twice to three times a day, depending on the seriousness.

Now for the other things that helped kill mycobacterium avium, is the lugol's solution, PVP-I betadine and cinnamon oil.

You recommend humic acid and cinnamon oil. What would be the right dosage of each?

Humic acid is not given too much as to cause cramps and constipation. The dose is started at 1/16 teaspoon on average mixed in aloe vera oil. Cinnamon oil is easy, I started with 1 - 5 drops in per liter of water and shake very hard. The cinnamon oil is then mixed in water. But alkaline water is a requirement for all drinks, and added to it is at least baking soda, and measure the pH to 7.5-8.5 because mycobacterium is acid fast bacteria, they don't like alkaline water. But there is some technical problems in giving such a water. The pH of water is generally more tolerable alkalinity wise after meals, and it doesn't produce the cramps if given that way. The cramps is caused by a hungry stomach (high acid) and you drink alkaline water. The water should just be basic neutral 7.0 pH before meals, but after meals can you used alkaline water. So obviously any supplements is given after meals is always mixed in alkaline water with a pH between 7.5 all the way to 10.0, the preferred pH is 8.0, but that varies from individual to individual. The cinnamon oil can always be increased, but must be below inflammation. There are cooling herbs can be mixed such as parsley and coriander to help offset the hotness in cinnamon oil.

During the recovery, it goes in stages and they body's demands shall be different. When it is infected initially, or at the worse possible moment, it is always aloe vera oil and humic acid. Then if it is not infected with opportunistic infection such as liver inflammation, pancreatitis, usually viral in nature it is treated with lysine hourly doses 4 in morning and 4 in evening for at least 3 days, usually out of the woods by 2 days, but 3rd day is prevent reinfection. During this recovery stage of is when glutamine and lysine is given. unless there is some slight swelling in legs, there might be added 1/32 to 1/16 one doses of citrulline. Which will help the intestinal damages, there is a third one that might be needed obviously vitamin C ascorbic acid (but always alkalized it) and L glycine, say 1/2 teaspoon twice a day, mixed all in drinking water.

Lugol's iodine and PVP-I (Betadine) too and you say it can be rectally applied mixed with water. Would you suggest that I try get it up the rectum as far as possible, rather like pushing a suppository up? The alternative you suggest is that it is "consumed a couple of drops". You mean taken through the mouth (orally) and if so, do you mean a couple of drops of both Lugol's iodine and PVP-I (Betadine).

Lugol's iodine or betadine is fine. I would just check which ones work the best. In some cases the rectum is so inflammed and bleeding you cannot put anything in it. That you take only orally say 1 drop - 3 drops a day, I usually do one. In cases rectally is not inflammed then 1 to 3 drops rectally would be fine, I would just not go deep enough like most. Getting into it is the only objected because they are so badly damage that to go further would not make sense.

You mention also aloe vera to regenerate the colon and I am taking this as a gel in capsule form, 5000mg a day. Should I consume more?

No. I would likely try more frequency rather then the amount. So 1000 mg twice a day, and move up to 5000 mg. Aloe vera is used to greater effect on lower end of the doses, too much congest the system. So I would be careful in obtaining the optimum dose from person to person. A serious case required more, a less serious case require less.

Do you think it would be OK for me to take the humic acid and cinnamon oil, Lugol's iodine and Betadine whilst also taking these drugs? I probably will try apple cider vinegar mixed with apple cider vinegar too.

That is individual reasons. But what I will do, is I will take them yes, but in addition I will take lysine and glutamine (on the third day), vitamin C and glycine and maybe BCAA, but always that lysine dominate the dosages, the others are always less. Because immunosuppressive drugs prevent inflammation and therefore I would take advantage of that with taking the other things too so it would heal before the inflammation sets in. To be off immunosuppressive or on it depends on the individual's decision.

Can you please suggest the dosage for each?"


08/10/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "The lysine is 1/2 teaspoon, glutamine 1/3 teaspoon, vitamin C 500 mg per dose and glycine 1/3 teaspoon, BCAA 1/3 teaspoon. Is just one example. As to how many dose of each, I usually begin with 4 times a day.

Flare up in ulcerative colitus might seem random (and scary), but it often low stomach acid making you vulnerable to mycobacterium. The remedy is always alkaline but one exception occurs is you cannot take it during meals!
