I'm the same guy that wrote my experience back in 2012. Praise God I'm still living a normal life and have completed many Ironman triathlons. There is hope!!! The brand I've used is Morning Star Minerals- Vitality Boost HA.
Take 1oz in fruit juice or non chlorinated water (very important).
If that doesn't work, you can up the doze. I started at 1oz and was up to 2ox twice a day at the beginning. With time, I was able to reduce that. I now only take it occassionally.
Hope this helps
Nearly 4 weeks on the humic acid and I can safely say that I feel free of UC. Hemorrhoids have gone with the help of aloe vera topically. I have no other symptoms now. All bleeding stopped after 2 days, pus, mucous etc. gone after a week. Now passing 1 stool each day, well formed, energy levels rising, putting weight back on.
Big thanks to the guy that suggested I try this protocol.
Big thanks to Ted
6 Years of Ulcerative Colitis. Normal function within about 10days.
I moved to America in early 2005 and immediately started having problems with my GI tract. Stomach cramps, frequent bathroom visits and weight loss were all symptoms. In a bad day I would use the bathroom 20 times. After 6 months I returned home to Ireland and saw a GI specialist who tested me and said I had IBS and to watch what I eat and learn to live with it. Over the following years I just gritted my teeth and got on with life. I moved back to the USA. I always knew where the bathroom was because I might have to run there at a moments notice.
In June 2011 I had a terrible episode after going wine tasting in Napa, CA. I knew alcohol wasn't good for my stomach but I wasn't aware just how bad things can get! This was the first time I had a bad UC flare up. I lost about 12 lbs in 3days and only narrowly avoided hospitalization because I went to see a GI specialist. I had all the tests and he diagnosed me with gastritis in the stomach, an esophageal ulcer and pretty severe Ulcerative Colitis. He said that UC is an autoimmune disease and I will have to take medication for life to deal with it. I was annoyed that I officially had a disease with no cure and I wasn't prepared to accept that.
I took the Meds: PPI for stomach acid and Asacol HD for anti-inflammation of the bowel. The PPI helped the acid in my stomach but the Asacol only helped a little. I went for my follow up visit and there was some improvement (bathroom visits down from 12 to about 6/day and I still had the urgency that only someone with UC or a similar problem can understand) but not as much as the Doctor would have liked. He told me to stick with these Meds for another 2 months and if there is not a significant difference then he would consult with some other Doctors and start steroids etc. I did not want to go down this route as the logical end is surgery and colostomy bag.
I started trolling the internet for cures. Tried yogurts- no help. Tried paleo diet/gluten free- no help. Tried staying off alcohol-helped a bit but not enough.
I then decided that I had to get my acidity under control. I started taking baking soda and water and it helped a bit. I also started eating organic food and reducing processed foods including refined sugar which I know could send me to the bathroom in minutes. Then Ted suggested on this site to try Humic Acid. I liked the sound of how it blocked the fungal/myobacterium cycle and I ordered some in liquid form online. Within 3 days of taking humic acid I noticed a difference. My urgency was reduced and the occasional stool was already getting firmer. Day 5, I was shocked at the effects, my stool was like I remember as normal.
I stopped taking the humic for one weekend (5 days on, 2 days off theory) and symptoms got slightly worse towards the end of the weekend so I resumed the humic on the Monday and I haven't stopped since. I believe Humic acid is mostly responsible for the unbelievable improvement. Removing the toxins from my diet and not drinking tap water filled with fluoride and chlorine may also be a factor. I also take L-Glutamine and Vitamin D and have started to take the fulvic acid also because they say it is best to take both together for overall health.
I want to shout it from the rooftops- Humic acid is a miracle for UC, God guided me to earthclinic and God bless you all for helping!
Hello Ted, I just wanted to tell you that You SAVED MY LIFE. I was diagnosed UC almost 1 year ago. My entire colon was UC. Doctor gave me Asacol and Canasa. They worked 3-4 months, after that stopped. I have done SCD diet. Scd diet worked for awhile after 5 months stopped to work. I was going to bathroom 20 times a day with bloody diarrhea.
I found your article on this website. I have been using humic acid 3 months. It cured my UC. As far as I can see that people can not find Humic acid on the web. I would like to suggest 2 website link. People can find them. Thank you so much, this has changed my life!
