My wife I were in St. Louis the last two days visiting some friends we had not seen for four years. There youngest son who is six, has been diagnosed with colitis. At first, doctors thought he had MRSA, and they put the boy on antibiotics for almost two years. Finally, I guess, they realized he had colitis.
The mother knew enough to give him probiotics, but that's not going to solve his problem. She also modified his diet by reducing his sugar intake. I told her to consider giving him cereal grasses like wheat grass and barley grass, and to try to place him on a gluten free diet. Aloe vera juice and colostrum could also help.
She recently read a book by Jordan Rubin, but did not know that he had a line of supplements called "Garden of Life". Jordan Rubin suffered from colitis, but now he is healthy and quite rich. I hope she continues to improve his diet and introduces some supplements to improve his condition. .........................Matt
