Alternative Colonoscopy Prep

My name is Alisa Rowland and I am proud to be contributing to this amazing site. I have been living with active, chronic Ulcerative Colitis for twelve years, diagnosed at 22. One Great Gut founder and creative genius, Joel, previously organized a support group in my local area that I attended.   It was the first time I was plugged into a community with other IBD’ers and it was a life-changing experience. For many (too many) years, I lived with my UC in a cone of silence and didn’t talk much about it to even my closest family members and

Today Was A Good Day

Today was a good day! Why? Because I had a great session with a woman today. These are the kind of interactions in life that really make me feel good because I like to feel like I’m making a difference. The lady in question is a 60 year old woman who has been taking lots of vitamins and supplements for many, many years. She explained to me that she had been diagnosed with IBS about 10 years ago and as a result of that had done many tests, which included Genova Labs CDSA and other lab’s allergy tests over the

Bhakti Fest – The Example of Love Our Youth Need

Bhakti Fest – The Example of Love Our Youth Need While I was growing up, I learned that love was something that needed to be worked hard for. My dad worked tirelessly to get my mom to love him. And my mom dreamed of experiencing true love – but never felt worthy of it. They both grew up with alcoholic fathers and had mothers who didn’t feel worthy of love. And, if I had to venture a guess, I imagine that their fathers and mothers (my great grandparents) also did not feel worthy of love. Unworthiness has become part of

Antibiotic use and its consequences for the normal microbiome

Publication Science Magazine Author(s) Martin J. Blaser Abstract Anti-infectives, including antibiotics, are essentially different from all other drugs; they not only affect the individual to whom they are given but also the entire community, through selection for resistance to their own action. Thus, their use resides at the intersection of personal and public health. Antibiotics can be likened to a four-edged sword against bacteria. The first two edges of the antibiotic sword were identified immediately after their discovery and deployment in that they not only benefit an individual in treating their infection but also benefit the community in preventing the

In the world of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis Joe Figliano is a legend for his amazing feat of healing his body that had been ravaged by Crohn’s Disease.  This man speaks the language of nature. I feel he should be given a Nobel Peace Prize. Martin Luther King Jr,  Menachem Begin and Mother Teresa have won Nobel Peace Prize’s. A Nobel Peace Prize is given to  the person who have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses. He found a way to calm
