ElizabethRose Posted August 26, 2016 Share Posted August 26, 2016 Hi everyone! I'm looking for some advice for battling ulcerative colitis and starting the Whole30. In 2013, I attempted and successfully completed my first Whole30. It was truly a life changing experience and overall I felt so much better. I used to even experience a lot of upper GI issues that got exponentially better after following a Whole30 lifestyle. So from then on I loosely followed a Whole30/Paleo lifestyle until I started to become sick in June of this year with intense lower GI symptoms. By the beginning of August, I was officially diagnosed with severe ulcerative colitis that isn't appropriately responding to normal forms of treatment. Although, things seem to be slowly improving, if things do not continue to improve then I will have to start a more aggressive form of treatment. Given how much I've had to go through this past month to try to achieve remission and considering how much farther I have to go in order to feel normal again, I'm starting to feel hopeless that things will truly improve. My last bit of hope is that if I try the Whole30 again, it will give my body the extra boost that it might need to get closer to being in remission. As of right now, my only lingering symptoms are lower abdominal pain (ranging from constant cramping to sharp acute pain), complete lack of appetite, and significantly decreased energy level. Any advice or anyone who's maybe gone through something similar? E Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
