Melatonin for Ulcerative Colitis

Posted by Anonymous (Anonymous) on 08/31/2011

Dear Ted, Hi. I would love your help to cure my UC. I read the latest and didn't understand the quantities for humic acid and fulvic acid and in what form. I have fresh aloe Vera in my garden. I can also purchase the gel. I make yogurt by putting Kefir grains-like a kind of mushroom white- in milk and in 24 hrs it becomes thick. I read it is full of probiotics. Better than anything bought. Something from Tibet. Can you please help me as I have bleeding and loose stools. I am desperate. It is very hard for me to go on a radical diet, but what do you think I should eliminate? Thank you very much in advance.

People assumed that melatonin is only produced by the pineal glands, but melatonin is produced far more in the gastrointestinal tract, about 400 times more than that in the pineal glands in the brain. It is used to regulate the gastrointestinal tract in preventing ulceration. So melatonin can be supplemented if you needed to reduce the ulcerations, and even prevent ulcerative colitis in some cases. The dose however is given around 10 mg hourly for 10 for hours in this the dose may help stopped the bleeding. The explanation is simple enough, the melatonin prevents adhesion of inflammatory molecules, mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis, and helps such regeneration.

Melatonin has several interesting properties and people are too focused on sleeping properties when it could do more. The one thing i don't like about supplements is they keep adding calcium, and if given enough prevents a lot of benefits as they are also needed by mycobacterium to protect themselves from the onslaught of immune system. There are two philosophies of treatment, turtle and the rabbit analogy I have to mention. In the rabbit analogy, you give it all at one, the turtle analogy is to give them in small but steady dose. In my opinion most remedies work because the slow and steady wins the race. To give it all at once can also be harmful.

As far as humic acid and fulvic acid, it is given at 1/16 teaspoon each twice a day at least, with psyllium husk if possible one glass and this will help ulcers too. If Gum arabic is used it is great, as they are absorbed in gastrointestinal tract to produce butyric acid and does have some psyllium husk properties as well. The humic and fulvic acid is to reduce diarrhea common with ulcerative colitis.

Hi Ted, Thank you very much for your answer. But I still don't understand. Just the melatonin and the humic and fulvic acid? Is the acid liquid or powder? How do I take it? With meals? Does it matter? Should I do both at the same time, the melatonin and the acid? Should I change my diet in any way? And what about aloe Vera or anything else? Do think this will be enough to help with my symptoms? Thank you again. I would love some more specifics. G-d bless you."

No. Aloe vera also.

Is the acid liquid or powder.

Either, but I prefer fulvic and humic in powder.

How do I take it?

Read previous postings, but it is taken 1/16 teaspoon a day with psyllium husk.

With meals? Does it matter.


Should I do both at the same time, the melatonin and the acid?

It doesn't matter.

Should I change my diet in any way?

No sugars or fruits (contain sugar). No vegetable oils, they make conditions much worse.

And what about aloe Vera or anything else?

There are many things, but try this first.

Do you think this will be enough to help with my symptoms?

Depends on individual due to different biochemical imbalances. It is best to start simple first then whenever any problems occur, those are specifics we have to deal with.

7. A fulvic acid mixture must always be combined with sodium thiosulfate and sea salt. Most important is that in a water solution before adding fulvic acid or humic acid, a sodium thiosulfate must be added. Sea salt in higher concentrations often acts as a preservative, but a wrong kind of sea salt may cause fulvic acid to precipitate within hours, which may reflect wrong pH and may need adjustment to maintain the suspension.

Is this also right for me?
