I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 25 years ago, and was treated by a wonderful doctor at Princeton Gastroenterology back east. Still, not wanting to take prescription drugs for any length of time, with all their nasty side effects, and finding that they don't prevent future colitis flares which could put me at risk of losing part of my colon one day, I soon took matters into my own hands. After a few years of taking prednisone, I learned about Proper Nutrition's Intestive product at a Mind Body Spirit Expo in the Philadelphia area. I bought it without hesitation, and began taking it while quickly weaning myself off of the prednisone. Despite the fact that my symptoms always returned when I tried to get off prednisone in the past, once I started taking Intestive, they did not. Good thing I found it when I did, because I also no longer had a health plan with prescription coverage.
Over the next ten years I moved from the Princeton area and had a couple of sigmoid and/or colonoscopies with other doctors. They all asked me if I was sure I had ulcerative colitis because they could see no evidence of it at all (yay to Intestive!)... (Of course, to this day, I jokingly refer to colitis as my disease of marriage because the symptoms showed up on my honeymoon and disappeared shortly following my divorce five years later. Still, I know Intestive played a prominent curing role.) It reportedly also works for Crohn's disease and more, without the nasty Rx drug side effects... I have not needed to take anything for many years, but plan to begin taking Intestive again soon, as I have been under a lot of stress of late
This past summer, my mother had a stroke and was diagnosed with leukemia at the same time. She incurred a bedsore wound at the hospital, which three months later is still not healed enough for her to be transferred from a sub-acute facility to an assisted living facility. Doctors have said she needs a lot of protein for it to heal, but she often refuses to eat much of the pureed foods to which she is limited.
Knowing that Proper Nutrition had made a product to help malnourished individuals in 3rd world countries, I called Proper Nutrition and asked Rebecca, who answered my call, to explain the differences between their products and see if any may help my mother. She especially recommended Seacure. Yet, in our conversation, I noted that there seamed to be something in every one of the products that could help each of the many issues my mother is now facing. Thus, I decided to buy one of each, especially since they were on their summer special (buy 3, get 1 free).
To my surprise, when the products arrive, I found that Rebecca had sent an extra bottle of Seacure "on her" with a personal note from her stating that she hoped my mother's health would be improving soon.
This was such a kind and unexpected gesture that touched my heart, and the hearts of my sisters during a period of time in which we were all very stressed.
