07 Aug Ulcerative Colitis Reversed!
Ulcerative Colitis Triggered by Antibiotics Reversed
Dr. David Tener
The Goldberg Tener Clinic
Chronic Disease Reversal
Mr. Jeffrey Russell presented at the Goldberg Tener Clinic in January 2020 with a medical diagnosis of Ulcerative Colitis confirmed by colonoscopy and blood work (see before / after labs below). His symptoms began immediately after taking a preventive antibiotic following the removal of a cyst from his chest. Prior to taking the antibiotic and developing severe symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis (frequent bloody diarrhea), Jeffrey enjoyed excellent health with no history of digestive or autoimmune issues.
Jeffrey’s Gastroenterologist prescribed steroids, mesalamine and a Biologic to suppress his symptoms. (see our articles “The Problems with Prednisone” and “The Dangers of Biological Drugs“). Since coming to the Goldberg Tener Clinic and implementing the individualized, Bio-Hygienic Re-Creation Program™ we developed for him, Jeffrey reversed his condition, normalized his digestive function and regained his health. He is drug free. His C-Reactive Protein, an important inflammatory marker that was significantly elevated initially, is now normal as shown below.
Antibiotics Are Not Without Risk
At the Goldberg Tener Clinic, we have successfully assisted thousands of patients over the past forty five years in reversing Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease and other chronic inflammatory disorders. In many of those cases, there is a lengthy history of antibiotic use prior to the onset of symptoms. Patients are often surprised to learn that antibiotics they took in the past for chronic ear infections, strep throat, urinary tract infections, tonsillitis and sinusitis contribute to the chronic health issues they develop later in life. In some cases, as in Jeffrey’s case discussed above, one course of antibiotics is enough to set off a downward spiral into a severe health problem.
In 2015 alone, approximately 269 million antibiotic prescriptions were dispensed from outpatient pharmacies in the United States, enough for five out of every six people to receive one antibiotic prescription each year. At least 30 percent of these antibiotic prescriptions were unnecessary according to the CDC. The rampant employment of antibiotics dispensed by medical clinics and hospitals is not without risk. Antibiotics disturb the functional balance of the digestive tract and immune system increasing the potential for autoimmune disorders including Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Eosinophilic Esophagitis and other chronic conditions.
The Medical Treatment of IBD Fails to Restore Health and Leads to New Complications
Patients with Ulcerative Colitis face a bleak set of options within the medical world. The usual outcome of IBD under medical management is a poor one and entails considerable risks. Endless steroids destroy health leading to diabetes, osteoporosis, adrenal exhaustion, premature aging and many other problems. The newer “biological drugs” such as Remicade, Humira, Enbrel and Entyvio, while sometimes temporarily relieving symptoms, frequently fail after a time leading to a return of symptoms that are often much worse than before. This commonly leads to the surgical removal of bowel tissue either by resection or total colectomy. Others on Remicade or other immunosuppressive drugs develop cancer, tuberculosis or other serious infectious issues.
Restoring Good Health is Possible!
Inflammatory Bowel Disease whether termed Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s Disease does not need to lead to hopelessness and ongoing drug dependency as Jeffrey’s recovery shown above illustrates. Most patients, with proper effort and the implementation of an individualized, Bio-Hygienic Re-Creation Program™, can improve greatly and often recover entirely. Tragic outcomes can usually be avoided if proper analysis and the right steps are taken in time. See more successful reversals from our patient archives below.
