Ulcerative Colitis & Shakeology Experience Please
Hello all!
My husband has moderate to severe ulcerative colitis. He is currently on azathioprine and lialda, and has just started having a flare up 5 days ago. He desperately wants to avoid Remicade or a colectomy, and is curious about if Shakeology would help. I am just looking for anyone who has had experience with this situation (having ulcerative colitis and using Shakeology). He gets so absolutely exhausted on a flare up, runs to the bathroom 20+ times a day, loses weight and can't work out. It's just awful. We have a 1 year old and a 3 year old too and he works a rotating shift. It's rough on everyone.
Were you able to go off meds? Did it get rid of your flare up? Did it make things worse? He is going to talk to his doc before we get him drinking it by the way. Just looking for experience or advice.
Thank you very much!
