[:en]My name is Kevin and at the age of 24 I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. The Dr. was not very hopeful that I would ever be off medication. I did alright for the first year on Lialda (a time released sulfasalazine) with bursts of prednisone when I’d have a flare up. I was never really myself though.
Ulcerative Colitis is not some mysterious ‘where did that come from’ disease.
Ulcerative Colitis is not caused by a germ and is not genetic.
Ulcerative Colitis is not something your pre ww2 ancestors had to deal with. The actual cause hadn’t been invented yet.
That actual cause is ultra potent manmade synthetic antibiotics.
