I wanted to share a story of hope with you all. Whilst I haven’t had a perfect run with my 10yr old pouch, i think we all face various challenges.
I have had 2 bouts of pouchitis and both times I’ve been able to fix it without any meds or drugs. I count that as a true blessing. Here’s what I do.
high protein diet. Breakfast lunch and dinner.
morning AND night I have a drink with:
super strong probiotics
payllium husk (prebiotic)
gut health mixture
high potency multi vitamins.
within 2-3 days my symptoms almost have gone!
ive added images of the products I use. They are the strongest/best/most expensive I can get my hands on in Australia.
I hope this post gives others some hope. This can be overcome.
Both my surgeon (a professor) and my gastroenterologist (also a professor) said I would need to go back on immune suppressant drugs as my pouchitis was not bacterial but the immune system turning on again. I refused and said I didn’t go through all these bloody surgeries to just be back on those meds. And I’d find an alternative solution.
the first time I had it, I treated it with the above along with diet modifications specific to me, and it worked!
this time around appears to be the same thing. I’m on day 3 and feeling a lot better. And with some luck it will clear up completely by day 5-7.
good luck everyone out there. Live your lives! Don’t let this bastard keep you in a pit of despair!!!
