What are the 5 Most Common Treatment Options for Colitis Sufferers?
You already know They Don’t Fix the Problem

1) Consider invasive, risky procedures (-oscopies), or even removal of all or part of the colon 
2) Undergo a colonoscopy, barium enema, X-rays, or scans.
3) Take over-the-counter pain and acid blocking drugs.
4) High fiber diet, low fiber diet, or a bland diet.
5) Mayo Clinic Diet: Use the most recommended diet in the world for digestive disorder sufferers, which has never cured one patient. Read it from the Mayo Clinic’s own “mouth”: // Ask yourself why you submit to diets, procedures, and treatments that you and your doctor know… won’t work?

Let me summarize this ridiculousness for you: Nearly everyone with colitis is trying remedies, medicines and diets that have never worked for the tens of millions of colitis sufferers before them.

 Do you want to keep doing the things that you already know don’t work?

If you read one or all of these articles you will see that according to doctors, and medical universities, you will suffer with Colitis for life. In fact the best you can hope for is periods of rest or remission between flareups. I have proven to my satisfaction that this is not the case. I believe we can do better than wait patiently between attacks and to fear straying from our toilets. Here are medical proofs:

What Causes Colitis?

Don't Skip This Section

Medical universities don’t know the cause of Colitis (see above medical links). Doctors who are trained at those same universities say, “There is no known cure.” Doctors do everything they can by giving medications, antibiotics, procedures, and in some extreme cases, surgeries. Doctors do not recommend these options lightly, and for some people, these treatments do improve their symptoms for a time.

There are two main things I don’t like about procedures or drugs. 

  • First, they don’t heal or cure which means they are only treatments. 
  • Second, the potential side effects of using powerful drugs can in some cases, make things worse. Read one or both of these medical articles.   

The first is by Dr. Mercola, a digestive disorder specialist: 

This second article is a forum of digestive disorder patients taking a powerful antibiotic combination. If you want to see what side effects you might experience taking that things like Cipro and Flagyl... and you don’t scare easily, read a bit here:

What Has Everyone Missed?

Doctors have spent 80 years searching in vain for the pathogen that causes colitis. It might not be as tough as they are making it. Basically only three things reach the colon (the main location for colitis inflammation). They are:

1) The food and drinks we consume
2) Medications we take
3)The saliva, acid, bile and enzymes our body produces to digest our food and drinks

Yes that list includes everything, but the most interesting part of this story is that only one of the things on the list is so irritating to tissue that it could reasonably cause the stripping of the mucosal lining and inflammation and corrosion of the colon wall. 

Can you spot it? That’s right… acid, (hydrochloric acid). Now this raises another question: Isn’t the body, including the digestive, tract designed to tolerate acid? The answer is a loud and definite “YES.”   

So what’s the problem? Enzyme and bile digestion are the preferable methods of digestion in my opinion and they are not damaging to delicate tissues like the esophagus, throat, intestinal cilia, tender digestive valves, and mucosal lining.    

Yes, the digestive tract is designed to tolerate acid periodically but in the Western cultures we eat so many catalyst meals and trigger foods daily that instead of enzymes digesting most of our food most of the time as it should be, we digest virtually every meal 3 times per day 365 days per year with hydrochloric acid.   

This, in my opinion is the problem. Acid is not bad but acid digestion over 1000 times per year seems to exact a terrible price on the digestive tract. People with colitis may simply be those who are more sensitive to acid digestion or more prone to the effects catalyst food combinations cause.    

Using 5 years of research and later hundreds of client specific experiences and testimonials I realized that almost everyone with a digestive disorder suffered from over production of stomach acid (I say almost because some such as GERD patients may actually suffer from low acid production.See article below).    

Two digestive disorders are even named according to their acidic: heartburn and acid reflux. I believe this is the root cause of all the main digestive disorders such as diverticulitis, colitis, Crohn’s, GERD, celiac, IBD, IBS, heartburn and acid reflux.  

Is this true? What is the most used medication by all colitis patients?  Antacid of course.    

Acid is bloating us, ulcerating us, bubbling up our throat, burning our stomach and inflaming our intestines and colon and yet everyone misses that it might be the actual cause of colitis.    

Reducing the acid flow might be as easy as making some minor diet changes. This link shows the need:

How Can We Know If Mike’s Theory is Correct?

I had no money, clinic or degree, so I had no choice but to do a catalyst food avoidance test on myself. There was enough symptom relief in about ten days that I believed I was on to something. In my family and circle of friends, there were two others with digestive disorders. 

One of these friends had full-blown colitis and the other had diverticulitis like symptoms and had already undergone removal of his gall bladder. Less than a year after his surgery his symptoms were not only back but he said they were worse than before the surgery.  They both followed my catalyst food avoidance diet and in less than a month, both told me they hadn’t experienced any of their digestive disorder symptoms. Now I felt like I was “three for three.” This was exciting but not exactly proof or a “clinical trial” so I needed more “guinea pigs.” My friend with the “missing” gall bladder is a website/computer guy. He helped me recruit 25 people directly from a website to try the diet with free supervision and coaching from me. The experiment went about 8 weeks and although this was an early version of my program the results were very good.  

23 people said their symptom improvement was “dramatic” (the highest rating offered by our survey). Now I was getting excited.

What Do These 7 Hot Spots Have in Common?

Diverticulitis, Colitis and Crohn’s have become an epidemic in the last 60 to 80 years. Before that, they basically were unknown or did not exist. //

There are about 195 countries on this planet. Nearly all of the colitis, diverticulitis and Crohn’s deaths (gastroenteritis mortality rate) come from fewer than 20 of these countries and over 80% of them come from only 7 modern “Westernized diet” countries. These countries are: (UK, USA, CAN, AU, DE, NZ and SA). // Billions of people in the less developed countries with less “modern style” diets have little or no digestive disorders (gastroenteritis) of which, colitis is a member. These digestive disorder “free” countries include Asia and Africa. (see above link)

Doctors Are Not Your Only Option!

As we proved earlier from the medical websites, doctors are taught that the cause of colitis is a mystery. Would you hire a professional in any other field who told you he/she didn’t know the solution to your problem? If your mechanic told you he/she did not know how to fix your car… would you hire them and “hope for the best?”

  Will this plan be hard to follow?   

Pardon me while I switch from enthusiastic researcher and author, to a no-hype father and husband (my wife and daughter are my partners). Although the program is straightforward, changing your eating style is difficult. Yes, there are some who sell capsules, ebooks or colitis diets, claiming “cures without effort”. That is not us, this is a real colitis diet and you will have to change some things. You will still be able to eat 95% of the foods you are used to, but you will have to exercise restraint and avoid the trigger foods and catalyst food combinations in your chart. Rules are hard to follow but let me ask you this: Is it easy going through your current pain and attacks?

Hello, new to the group! Just ran across your website last night and can't wait to get started. I have colitis and am on medication which is somewhat treating it but definitely have been looking and knowing that there was something out there to make more sense instead of "dealing" with this and healing from the inside out. Excited for this life change and will be ordering the books soon. Thank you for your program this is exactly what I have been looking for!!!!!
