Dr. Patrick's Story: Overcoming Colitis
When I was in college, I had colitis, an inflammatory bowel condition characterized by loose and bloody stools. Talk about diarrhea — I was going to the toilet 15 times a day! The University of Tororonto campus was enormous, housing the activities of 54,000 students. I had to know which buildings were open when, and the distance between bathrooms, "just in case". I was miserable and embarrassed. My immune system was so depleted that I got hepatitis. I was way too young to be so unhealthy.
My first trip home that fall, I went to Dr. McGuire our family MD. He gave me a medication, but it only got worse.
Desperate, and back at in school, I decided to go to the University’s Health Center. The doctor was a young, caring doctor with new ideas- a doctor who did not want me to rely on addictive or harmful pharmaceuticals. He advised me to throw away my medications, pointing out that their primary side effect was damage to the liver. A liver that was already inflamed by hepatitis!
He helped me see that if I changed my diet, my colitis would get better. And it did. While I no longer had colitis, I was not perfect and I still had bouts of irritable bowl (IBS). Since then I have become a doctor who specializes in using healthy alternatives to drugs and surgery for bowel problems. And, I no longer have IBS. I was fortunate to become sick early in my life to learn that there is a better way to heal your body of functional digestion problems such heartburn, irritable bowel, GERD and indigestion.
So, thank you Dr. McGuire for teaching me a lesson that I've had the pleasure
of passing on to thousands of patients since 1997. Drugs don’t heal; they only
mask the symptoms. Our bodies do the healing once they are nourished
