Kevin W. – DC

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. The diarrhea and blood loss was always there. As my symptoms got worse, the meds stopped working. At this point I was on the toilet 10 – 20 times a day. I lost almost 30 pounds from my normal weight of 155 lbs and my activity was down to going between work and home. I was forced to tell my boss about my condition because I was late a lot and had to go home early some days. I had no life. I was weak, anemic and if not on the toilet I was in bed most of the time. I heard about Dr. Snow but wasn’t sure about trying an alternative treatment That changed when another visit to the GI Doc only left me with a bill and no real help. I feel we have been taught to trust the medical field to be 100 percent correct in their treatments. The problem is UC doesn’t always respond to traditional treatment. They can give you some relief but the underlying problem is never addressed. I took a leap of faith and contacted Dr. Snow. After our over the phone appointment with my girlfriend taking notes I ordered his prescribed protocol. The low fiber diet didn’t seem too healthy but it made sense in giving my gut a rest. After the first 2 months I saw a real turn around. I started gaining weight and the time spent on the toilet was decreasing. For the first time I felt I had a shot at getting my life back. In less than 6 months I had gained all 30lbs back and was slowly started eating a wider variety of food. I’m coming up on a year since I first talked to Dr. Snow. I am now eating anything I want. I’m holding my remission with a minimal amount of supplements as maintenance. I’ve referred 2 others to Dr. Snow and both of them, although early on, are having success.I hope to meet Dr. Snow in person some day so I can thank him in person for giving me my LIFE back.*
