Hi, thanks for taking the time to read about my journey. If you've made it to this page, I'm guessing that either you or someone you care about is suffering from some type of digestive issue. I'm hoping that my background will offer some insight into my journey as well as some encouragement to keep fighting for your health. I'll try to keep this as short as possible.
In 2005, I was working full time for an Information Technology company in Texas. I was going into the office 5 days a week, traveling out of town regularly to visit customers, enjoying a healthy social life with friends and family, and looking forward to building my future. That all changed toward the end of the year.
After returning home from a business trip, I started to notice some irregularities in my digestive system so I decided to see my Gastroenterologist. He had helped me several years earlier with an acid reflux condition and I was happy with his services. After that office visit, my doctor suggested I have a colonoscopy, which was performed several weeks later. Lab results after that procedure showed that I was positive for Ulcerative Colitis (UC).
My first response to this news was confusion. I had really never heard of UC and wasn't sure about the details. After reading the information that the doctor provided me and doing more research, the thing that really grabbed my attention was that there is no cure for this disease. My next responses were, (in this order) anger, sadness, despair, and then determination. The good news was that there were several options for treating my condition.
For the next 3 or so years, prescription drugs kept my symptoms manageable. I really didn't have to change my lifestyle very much. Unfortunately, my symptoms came raging back with a fierce intensity. I tried every other option that was available, including immune system suppressants, but nothing was helping me. Due to my symptoms, I was basically a prisoner in my own home. I always had to have a restroom available within seconds. I lost my job, my social life went from outgoing to non-existent, and my future looked very grim.
In January of 2011, after failing multiple treatment regimens, my doctor informed me that the only option left for us to try was surgery. He said that I needed to have surgical resection of my colon for relief of my symptoms. This was another gut punch for me but I was desperate to get my life back from this UC monster that had control of me. I was just about to go down this surgery road when I heard about a diet that was designed to help people with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. I decided to give this a try as one last option before having surgery.
I was not optimistic about this diet. All of the professional medical advice I had received was that diet really wasn't going to help my Ulcerative Colitis symptoms. Luckily, in my case that turned out to be false. Several years on this very restrictive diet relieved me of a good portion of my symptoms. This is when I realized that what you eat is not only very important, but it can actually work to get your digestive system back to where it once was.
After being on this diet for approximately 4 years, I started to do more research and experimentation to see what ingredients were providing the most benefit to my Ulcerative Colitis condition. Trial, error, and re-testing brought me to 3 ingredients that some have described as superfoods. Those ingredients are Turmeric, Ginger, and Blueberry. In 2015 I started taking these ingredients by themselves (in the form of a smoothie) while moving away from the restrictive diet that I was on, and my condition continued to improve.
In 2016, I started taking these ingredients in capsule form. It took more testing to get the dosage correct but I was able to identify the perfect formula later on that year. I have been taking this formula now since 2015. I have also been completely symptom free since 2016. My most recent colonoscopies have been clear and have shown that my Ulcerative Colitis is "inactive." To me, considering where I was in 2011, this is nothing short of a miracle.
Rhizocolis the end result of this journey. Due to this formula, I have been able to resume my career, rebuild my social life, and take back control of my physical health. These are things that I thought would never be possible.
I wanted to share this formula with others who are suffering from inflammatory digestive issues. I believe that if you are fighting Inflammatory Bowel Disease, specifically Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's Disease, this supplement can act as another weapon in your arsenal and I would encourage you to give it a try.
Thanks for your time and keep fighting. Getting back to optimal core digestive health is within reach.
