Ulcerative Colitis After Getting Sick From Parasite or Food Poisoning

Posted by S. on 06/14/2011

Hi, posted a question on your earth clinic site, but realized I did not put a subject on there. I am writing to you incase you did not receive my question. Thank you so much for your time.

I got sick in October (about 8 months ago) I believe I got some type of parasite, or food poisoning because my mother and I both had the same symptoms. At first we could barely make it to the bathroom, and there was a lot of mucus and the bowel movements were there but just weren't right. My mom took Slippery Elm tea every day and she got better. I took it every once in awhile but I did not get any better. I decided to see my doctor and she tested for c diff. It came back negative but she gave me cypro just incase. From there I got worse and worse. I battled it all through the winter and had more and more diarrhea and no bowel movements at all. I would go to the bathroom 4-6 times a day. In February of this year I got even sicker and the diarrhea got worse and I started to see blood in the stool. I went to a GI doctor who did a colonoscopy on me. He said that I had ulcerative colitis. He put me on a steroid and told me to take Asacol for the rest of my life. I really did not want to be on a drug for the rest of my life so I found a natural doctor to help.

In mid February I took the steroid from my GI doctor and went to see this natural doctor. My natural doctor said I had a parasite. He put me on a wormwood combination for the parasite and it helped a ton! I instantly started having regular bowel movements and saw almost an 80% improvement right way. From there I did well for a few months. Then late April I got sick again and started having diaherra and blood in my stool. I am back to the same place I was before. My natural doctor has tried many things and he things the "bug" or parasite is mutating. We tried the parasite medicine again but did not work near as well as the 1st round. My bleeding and diarrhea got worse so he said go ahead and get back on the steriod and he will continue to work with me on this crazy bug!

So here I am today just started taking the steroid, (day 4) and I am having blood and cramping and diarhea, some narrow and mushy bowels but not good. I would have thought the steroid would help more by now but it isn't.

Do you have any thoughts on what to do or what might be wrong? I have never had issues like this until 8 months ago and my life has been turned upside down. I am a young mother with 2 little kids and I just want to get better. I feel like I have tried lots of things but don't know what to do?

Do you think I have a parasite, or just bad bacteria and no good bacteria left? Do you think your magnesium remedy would be right for me or cause more diarrhea? I just don't know what to think. Any help would be wonderful!

Feel free to post this on your site, and I tried but not sure if it went through. I can't wait to hear back from you. I love reading your information. Thanks again!

The bacterium as per my previous recent posting on ulcerative colitis, is mycobacterium avium and mycobacterium paratuberculosis is the two main cause of both Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis. The genetic inheritance makes different people respond to by becoming Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis. The method of treatment is three things: humic acid, Lugol's iodine and cinnamon oil, as the primary treatment. The regenerative colon's is helped most by aloe vera oil, rectally and orally. You can mix the humic acid, Lugol's iodine (or try Betadine) and cinnamon oil separately or combined. I prefer to try out differently first then combining, to find out what it helps.

The reason other people are not having success is mycobacterium avium only responds to PVP-I (povidone Iodine or Betadine) or Lugol's solution. MAP or mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis responds mostly to tran-cinnnamaldehyde but responds also equally well to cinnamon oil. Wormwood only work briefly against certain bacterium, but not all the time. Oregano oil was not so effective and more has to be used, about 3 times as much compared to cinnamon oil.

Vitamin K1 and K2 will briefly stop, but not entirely the bleeding. Most of bleeding occurs when mycobacterium attaches to health cells and causing an "autoimmune reaction". These mycobacterium exist in several forms, in tuberculosis and also the main cause in rheumatoid arthritis, which is treatable. In fact I think all these autoimmunity some of the might be mycobacterium in fact. There are some I haven't quite test because I have very limited budget, such as gallium nitrate, dl phenylalaine, and low dose natrexone, which I think has primarily to do with mycobacterium too.

For most of the patients in the past they responded well to just aloe vera and humic acid. Do not add too much humic acid. Just 1/16 or 1/8 is the maximum any one time. It may be mixed with aloe vera oil. There are some funny cases that responded to just magnesium chloride drops, but I guess it wasn't ulcerative colitis although symptoms appeared exact. You may add them and do it orally and rectally, because the colon is very long and so I used it both ways. You can try cinnamon oil if you want. It has not responded to tetracycline HCl and for certain mycobacterium, it sometimes responded to doxycycline. I have seen people doing stem cells, it doesn't work because it is bacteria, as same as Alzheimer and Parkinson's but that ones is a virus. You can also add PVP-I (Betadine) to the aloe vera oil or the Lugol's too, rectally and orally. A starting dose would be 1 to 5 drops and you find what doses you tolerate the best.

One word of warning, these mycobacterium resists conventional methods to sanitizing, antibiotics, and methods of sanitizing and are found in most milk products, and vegetables. The method of sanitizing them is Betadine or Lugol's, humic acid and some cinnamon oil. Those people with this past problems I think is best to take at least humic acid for protection. What I found is acid reflux humic acid will cure it too primarily because it is the similar bacteria, of mycobacterium species. The reason why it didn't go to the gut and infect that part is 1) there may be different subspecies and 2) your stomach acid is killing the first, but humic acid kills them whether they are in the stomach causing it, or in the gut as well.

The best method of protecting against future ulcerative colitis attack is to have high stomach acid, such as betaine hydrochloride with every meals. Bad bacteria in the stomach is VERY SENSITIVE OF pH, by that I mean pH below 6.0. You can do well if you get alkaline by taking baking soda after every meals. Probiotics makeup DEPENDS on pH. If your gut pH is below 6.0 you can end up taking probiotics forever. But by having an ideal pH for the gut it allows them to grow probiotics in your stomach more naturally. Regulary taking humic acid is very important as it is natural antibiotics and helps with the gut's health. Remember, humic acid is regulary feed the livestock to prevent such similar conditions in pigs and cows as do humans.

Hello, thank you so much for your fast response! I appreciate all the great information. I am going to order these products and try all of this! I did have a couple of questions. As for the Aloe vera oil, is there a certain kind that I should be getting. I have read and heard that some aloe vera oil or solutions are better than others depending on the leaf, etc. I have bought aloe vera juice is that the same or do I need oil?

Also, I noticed when looking up the humic acid there are tablet forms... I assume I am better off getting the liquid form right? If so do you have a recommendation on a good pure form of humic acid? I never found cinnamon oil that I could take internally.....any suggestions on that? I did find the Lugols Iodene so I will get that too.

When taking this formula should I take this stuff on an empty stomach or with food and how often in a day?

Also how long do you think I would need to be taking this mixture to notice and see results? Or is it different for each person. Once I get my body in balance should I be good for awhile or is this something I will have to always take.

You talked about my ph level, what is the best way to test my ph level? Should I get the strips at a health food store?

On a side note I did try taking a "spit text" a candida test. It said upon rising and before eating to spit into a glass of water (not hot or cold) I did that this morning and my spit was very stringy and grew legs. Within about 1 minute or so most of the spit and the legs that it grew dropped to the bottom of the glass. The test online said the quicker it grew legs and the quicker that it dropped to the bottom of the glass meant the more yeast you had. Do you think this is a good text? Just curious if candida is part of my issue too. I was curious of what you thought about that. I assume the solutions you gave me will take care of that too.

Again thank you so much for your help. You have given me lots of hope! I can't wait to try this. I will wait to hear back from you so I get the purest forms of what to take. I will keep you posted on my progress and let you know how I do. Thanks again so much!!

In Bangkok I have patients in the worst form imaginable, bedridden on I.V drips and severe ulcerative colitis for years. For two cases I have the worse imaginable ones they took accutane and it started a chain reaction of events that lead up to it. For some reason it lowers the body immune system in the intestines against a particular harmful form of bacteria that resists all known standard sterilization the mycobacterium. And it took me about 2 weeks to get the to go the the bathroom again, and it takes 1 months of having enough energy to go outside, they come from the United States. The other cases it was their diets and it was high in certain heavy metals. So I would imagine you should begin improvement to some extent within two weeks, if you don't overdose the humic acid and take the required 1/16 teaspoon to 1/8 teaspoon a day. The aloe vera is aloe vera oil, nothing is mixed it is pure aloe vera oil. Never mind its the leaf or other things, it works the same if it is aloe vera. The reason why they don't sell aloe vera oil commercially is 1) it gets rancid fairly quickly (in their terms) 2) they prefer the powdered extract which cost a lot more and they don't go rancid. The reason why I used the first form is even if they are a little rancid or somewhat rancid it works. The second reason why I used the first one is they are cheaper then the extract form and you are going to use a lot of it. Aloe vera juice won't work but you can try if you want, but not for treating ulcerative colitis. You will have to contact suppliers or manufacturers directly because they don't normally sell through normal channels. It would be great if you were in Bangkok because there are supplies here but they don't export and don't use internet here as much, neither do they answer mails!

Whatever food you take make sure your food is tested for pH. It has to be over or equal to 7.0. That is a strict requirement, even it is your medicines you are taking. One exception to this rule is iodine, since it is consumed at low quantities.

The internet is filled with disinformation. Remember when we are kids we use to eat cinnamon toothpicks. Well it is actually cinnamon oils that was used. The cinnamon oil is mixed one drop to three drops per liter of water, and is shaken such that it is well mixed and soluble. Part of the reason they say cinnamon is unsafe has nothing to do with cinnamon oil, it's the coumarin content in powdered form, much like those used in spices and has to be consumed in large quantities and normal people won't be consuming and neither my remedies is nearly that large.

Humic acid is best in powdered form. It's more concentrated. Part of the fact they try to sell liquid one is simple: they get more profit selling it in diluted form and try to convince it is better. It happened with beta glucan, Q10, EDTA, etc. You can get humic acid mostly from chemical supply store and nursery plant stores, the ones that sell you fertilizer! Just visual inspection and sterilization with 1% H2O2 is enough.

When taking this formula should I take this stuff on an empty stomach or with food and how often in a day?

It is best taken on empty stomach before meals is usually the best.

Also how long do you think I would need to be taking this mixture to notice and see results? Or is it different for each person. Once I get my body in balance should I be good for awhile or is this something I will have to always take.

You should see results in 2 weeks, assuming you don't make a lot of mistakes such as eating sweets, food with pH below 6.0, and stir fried and fried food is absolutely forbidden.

You talked about my ph level, what is the best way to test my ph level? Should I get the strips at a health food store?

pH strips used to check urine level and check your food intake it must be above 7.0 or equal to.

On a side note I did try taking a "spit text" a candida test. It said upon rising and

If you have candida, taking humic acid will get rid of it, although it works best with tannic acid.

Use coconut oil for your consitipation when you take them such as 1 teaspoon would do fine.

The only oils that I allow is coconut oil. No oils are to be used in food during the treatment period.

Hello Ted, I just wanted to give you an update on how I am doing. I started taking the humic acid in water a few times a day and the results are amazing!!! Thank you so much, this has changed my life!

I first got a ph urine test kit and found that I was very acidic, and reading around 6.2 to 6.4. I also found a very helpful probiotic called Saccharomyces Boulardii. This said it would help stop the mycobacterium that you had mentioned that you thought was part of my issue. So that has helped quite a bit. I also got the cinnamon drops and felt that also helped my digestive system and noticed some improvement. I ordered the Humic acid and just received 2 days ago. Within a few hours of taking it I felt remarkably better and took another ph test and was at a perfect 7 and was alkaline! I then from there have had normal bowel movements! No blood, no diarrhea! The humic acid is AMAZING! The second day I took it was even better, regular bowel movement and no cramps, no blood, no diarrhea! I feel almost completely better! I have been very sick and have battled Ulcerative colitis now for about 8 months and I am on the road to becoming 100% better thanks to you!

I did have one question, do you feel I should continue to take this Humic acid for the rest of my life to keep me alkaline and in good health? What do you recommend?

Thank you so much for your help and concern for people! You are amazing and I appreciate you emailing me back and helping me figure this out! Are you a scientest, a doctor, natural healer? Just curious? I wish more people knew about you. You are wonderful and thank you for changing my life and giving me my health back!! May God Bless you!!!!

Also, feel free to use this email on your earthclinic site. Thanks again!!

First, I have a lot of people with much worse ulcerative colitis than you and they have since recovered too. The issue is mycobacterium, it's a health threat since it is one bug that doesn't respond to standard sterilization and the authorities actually allow much of the food supply to be left uncheck.

do you feel I should continue to take this Humic acid for the rest of my life to keep me alkaline and in good health? What do you recommend?

You can take it for health purposes if you want, but you take it less of course. Too much causes constipation but the level I mention is fine. Getting your self alkaline is paramount, getting yourself re-mineralize is just as important. Humic acid is the only substance I found to kill the mycobacterium. No dangerous organism can grow on this stuff. That's why peat moss mummies do not get decayed, The black peat moss is actually humic acid. Remember mycobacterium is everywhere, in your milk products and food products, and those without stomach acid are most vulnerable, Ulcerative colitis or Crohn's. Yes the cause is known, but they didn't go about finding the cure.

If you feel you have cured yourself it is to your discretion whether to continue or not. I for example take it weekly or twice weekly.


07/01/2010: S. replies: "Hi Ted, I have talked to you before about my ulcerative colitis. I was doing better trying the humic acid but I failed to tell you that I was also on a steroid. I really didn't think the steroid was helping that much because because by the 7th day I still had bleeding and some cramping and not really normal bowels. Then I started the probiotic and the humic acid I was instantly much much better and I sent you my success story. Since then I have gone off the steroid and now I am back to having trouble. Some diarrhea but at this point quite a bit of blood. Is there anything that I can do to stop the bleeding? I am cramping some and bleeding and having lots of issues again. On a side note I am having dental issues as well and my
dentist has put me on penicillin so my teeth and gums don't get infected. So I am sure that isn't helping. But I started the bleeding right when the steroid ended so I don't think it is the penicillin that is bothering me. It's like I stopped the steroid and all my issues came back. I don't know what to think, I feel like if I could get the cramping and the bleeding to stop that would be great. Any thoughts? Thank you so much!"

07/02/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "The mycobacterium is hydrophobic, you need aloe vera oil. And it is mixed with humic acid. Once they get killed then you wean off slowly from the steroid when you feel it has gone. Don't forget the cinnamon oil that is mixed some in the humic acid or taken alone. But it is the aloe vera that makes the humic acid oil soluble, and that makes the mycobacterium oil soluble. Another thing that helps to penetrate the mycobacterium is DMSO. So I prepare an aloe vera/DMSO solution and mixed with humic acid. There is also another formula that works against mycobacterium used for other purposes but is applicable too. It is castor oil/DMSO and take small amounts say 1/2 to 1 teaspoon. That may be used, but it known to cause diarrhea if taken too much, castor oil is very powerful.

The most important is oils and fats and sugar must be avoided during treatment. Steroids must be used during treatment until the conditions improve first before you wean them off and that takes at least 1 to 2 months.

The third thing is healing. I think glutamine is most important to help heal the intestinal tract during your healing phase. Once they heal it will take time for mycobacterium to take over by damaging the cells, at which time you remove the steroids.

It's just practice makes perfect I think. There are other people who used aloe vera gel, but I used aloe vera oil. I think oil is better, and if mixed with aloe vera oil/DMSO and humic acid it is as simple as I can make it. You can also add castor oil on top of it too. Castor oil kills but also cinnamon oil too, but it is the DMSO that gives the penetration needed to go through the hydrophobic shells that protect mycobacterium.

There is a healing protocol that i use when the intestines are not inflamed, when on steroids and killing mycobacteria. You have to do lysine, glutamine, vitamin C, and possibly sodium silicate. It is mixed 1/4 for lysine, glutamine, vitamin C and drops of sodium silicate to 1 glass of water, and the solution must be 7.0 - 8.0 pH. Taken over the course of several days to allow healing. Then the steroids are weaned off slowly. But you need to master the first step first in killing the mycobacterium.


07/02/2010: S. replies: "Thank you so much for your quick response. I really appreciate your help! I am having trouble finding aloe vera oil, and the gel is usually for external use, not taken internally?? What do you mean by DMSO what does that stand for?

I am already off the steroid and not sure I can just go right back on. It was weird though, I didn't really feel like the steriod was helping me that much, I mean I was on it for over a week at a pretty high dose and didn't notice much help. But then when I got off of it a few days ago it really seemed like it did help. I also notice that I am not nearly as alkaline as I was before.

I have L-glutamine is that the same thing that you are talking about as glutamine? If so I can try some of that. Thank you so much for continuing to help me!"

07/03/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "If you don't feel right about steroids, there is always low dose naltrexone that sometimes helps. The low dose is generally lower than that on the internet. I mix say 50 mg of natrexone in 250 cc of water, and then find the proper dose by counting the number of drops that the inflammation does reduce. Start small such as 5 drops and then find your proper drops. If you don't know where to get natrexone, websites are generally in Mexico that are generic based, under the name Revia, which are cheaper.

The other way to reduce inflammation is butyrate, which is found in oat bran cereal without the sugar. In a research study the researchers advised 60 grams of oats a day be taken. Butyrate is needed for healthy intestines as they needed to maintain health. That will reduce it too. Some people go for butyric acid, and sodium butyrate and others, but oats are easy to find. You can take more if you want. I believe sodium silicate may prevent future infection and resistance to infection when added a couple of drops but that I have to do more experiments, and xylitol may prevent certain mycobacteria from attaching themselves, but that will have to wait.

The food has to be soft you probably know by now. Then for healing you at least need yes, L-Glutamine. but I believe Lysine for collagen formation is needed too, and vitamin C, at least. It must be at pH 7 to 8. Must be alkaline in general. There are other nutrients that are important such as B12, folate, and B2.

Remember all your foods must be at least 7, and never below it. This is very important, and the usual no fats, oils or sugar. One exceptions on oils are coconut oil, butyrates, and aloe vera oil I found helpful. I think the polyunsaturated does the most damage, which is vegetable oils so avoid that. If you cannot find aloe oil then aloe gel will do for now.
