Reversing Ulcerative Colitis Through Holistic Gut Healing

The gut is a complicated thing. There are many things that can go wrong. Nevertheless, achieving gut healing is possible, and I’ve witnessed numerous individuals successfully overcome their gut issues.

Ulcerative colitis, or UC, is a type of inflammatory bowel disease focusing on the colon and rectum, often involving chronic inflammation and ulceration in the colon’s lining.

In this article, I’ll share the stories of two individuals who successfully healed their ulcerative colitis.

(Please note that while the primary focus is on ulcerative colitis, I am confident that these approaches can benefit many other gut issues. By prioritizing gut healing, a holistic balance within the entire digestive system can be achieved. The body’s interconnected nature means that healing one aspect can yield positive effects throughout.)

Nicole Carter’s Path to Healing

Here is one example of someone who was able to heal hers. She wrote this article/story (Link). And here is a quick description of her article below:

In this article, the author, Nicole Carter, shares her personal journey of overcoming Ulcerative Colitis, an autoimmune disorder affecting the intestines. Initially told there was no cure and advised not to change her diet, the author explored the role of inflammation and the overgrowth of the Candida fungus in her condition. Stress was identified as a contributing factor, and the author managed it through relaxation techniques.

Carter successfully reversed her symptoms by addressing two main aspects with a food-based approach. To eliminate Candida, she cut out all sugars, fruits, and carbohydrates that break down into sugars while incorporating anti-fungal foods like turmeric root, ginger root, and oregano oil. To restore gut balance, she consumed Kombucha, sauerkraut, and probiotics daily. To reduce inflammation, she incorporated lemon water with lemon essential oil, green vegetables, vegetable juices, curry, frankincense essential oil, green tea, and coconut oil into her daily diet. Stress management involved allocating one hour daily for relaxation activities and weekly counseling sessions.

She emphasizes that her protocol, outlined in the Six Week Slim Down, is not just for weight loss but also aids in Candida elimination and inflammation reduction. She encourages sharing this information to raise awareness about Ulcerative Colitis, affecting 1.4 million Americans before age 30, and to help those who may be suffering in silence due to embarrassment or shame.


RJ Singer’s Healing Journey

Here is another article with a similar story of healing (Link) and the summary below:

In the article, RJ Singer shares his personal journey of recovering from Ulcerative Colitis (UC), which for him had been a debilitating disease that he suffered from for over a decade. Despite receiving a diagnosis from Western Medical Doctors and being prescribed long-term pharmaceutical medication, he was determined to find a cure for himself.

Singer outlines four key approaches that he used to heal himself from UC:

1. Food Therapy: He experimented with various diets, including elimination diets, gluten/dairy/sugar/alcohol/nightshade-free diets, vegetarian, paleo, and ketogenic diets. He emphasizes the importance of addressing inflammation, a key element in UC, by rebalancing gut bacteria. This involves avoiding processed foods, preservatives, additives, and opting for an organic, whole-food plant-based diet. He also highlights the impact of certain oils on inflammation and recommends using alternatives like raw organic coconut oil or organic ghee.

2. Acupuncture: Singer found relief during flare-ups through acupuncture, which stimulates the central nervous system, increasing blood flow, nutrition, and reducing inflammation. He practices a style of acupuncture particularly beneficial for chronic internal diseases.

3. Chinese Herbs: Singer emphasizes the effectiveness of Chinese herbal formulas, developed over two millennia, in reducing inflammation, breaking up biofilms, killing pathogens, promoting healthy gut bacteria, and facilitating tissue regeneration.

4. ZhiNeng QiGong: Singer credits his daily practice of ZhiNeng QiGong, a form of QiGong developed by Dr. Pang Ming, for playing a crucial role in his long-term recovery. QiGong is highlighted as a method for individuals to actively participate in and influence their own healing journey, with specific exercises and techniques focusing on calming the nervous system and improving blood circulation.

Throughout the article, Singer provides insights into the importance of each approach and encourages individuals suffering from UC to explore alternative therapies and natural remedies. His personal journey of overcoming a chronic illness serves as inspiration for others seeking solutions beyond conventional medicine.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, Nicole Carter and RJ Singer’s stories show how they beat ulcerative colitis with lifestyle changes and alternative healing methods. They didn’t just manage their symptoms—they reversed disease!

In the complicated land of gut health, Nicole Carter and RJ Singer’s experiences serve as inspirational guides, showing that healing is attainable through determination, several gut restoration methods, and a commitment to holistic well-being.

I hope you have enjoyed this article. Also (medical disclaimer here) please understand that these were their personal stories and do not take this as “medical advice.” You can share these things with your doctor and see what they think though.

I really believe that if you are dealing with this that you should be seen by a specialist that understands the gut. It might even be helpful to find a doctor who specializes in integrative and naturopathic medicine (with a focus on the intersection of digestive health, the microbiome, hormones, and the immune system.) Best wishes and take care!
