Hello everyone, I am 57, and have had Colitis for many years. I have had 6 Colonoscopies, and the first five Doctors all thought I was crazy, because nothing showed up when they did the Colonoscopy. The sixth one discovered what my problem was. All the other Dpctors did not put any biopsy's under a microscope, and this Coctor did, and he found that I had Microscopic Collegeous Collitis (please excuse any misspelling). This is like being one step less that Chrones, and after the diagnosis I had an infection that the antibiotic Levaquin was used back to back for two different problems and Doctors that caused C-Dif. I lost over 30 pounds in five months, and was getting scared. A good friend of mine told me to eat Kale. To boil two leafs for 3 minutes, and eat the Kale with margarine, or butter, and salt. This kale has saved my Sanity and my Life, because the Steroid that the Doctor told me that "might" cure my problem costs over $1,200.00 in my State and I must take three months of this Steroid in order for it to work. I have not taken this Steroid, but the Kale every morning makes my life normal. Please try this. I don't know about you, but I take enough medicine.
