ROGER JACKSON MD ON HIS WIFES RECOVERY

Roger Jackson MD On his wifes recovery

February 9th, 2004

1st Oct 03
CeCelia has Ulcerative Colitis of 10 yrs. duration that has progressed from distal proctitis to near universal colitis on her last yearly colonoscopy. She was having flare ups several times yearly controlled with Prednisone. She usually was on Mesalamine or Azulfidine. Of course she had the usual cramps and urgency and chronic bleeding (for years) and iron deficiency. In the Spring 2003 she had a flare despite just ending a 6 wk. Prednisone taper.

She tried Molocure for 2 months but stated that it was ineffective and stopped it. She then found " The Breaking the Vicious Cycle " low (grain) carbohydrate diet, with homemade yogurt, and fruit. She has religiously stuck to the diet after reading the book. Although the diet has been tough she has had a rather remarkable and sustained response for 6 months. No bleeding, slight urgency only and solid stools-- she takes Citrucel for the spastic colon now. She will have another colonoscopy in the next few months and it should be much less inflamed. She encourages everyone to read the book " Breaking the Vicious Cycle". Hope this helps.

Addendum 3rd Feb 04 Today she had her follow up colonoscopy after ten months of the SCD diet (Breaking the Vicious Cycle). The colonoscopy was entirely NORMAL! The gastroenterologist was visibly surprised. He suggested a repeat colonoscopy in 5 yrs.

I was given Elaine Gottschall's book, "Breaking the Vicious Cycle." I stuck with the instructions and within only a few days, much to my amazement, the bleeding and diarrhea stopped! I've been on this diet for 5 months, following it faithfully and feeling wonderful. All symptoms have disappeared! I am a new person with energy as I never had before.
