Over the last 15 years I’ve had recurrent Ileitis
- Name: Arrow Durfee
Over the last 15 years I’ve had recurrent Ileitis which is an inflammation of the cecum or ileum of the colon. It causes pain and swelling and I have been advised that it may lead to appendicitis or other severe bowel deterioration. Because I am most leery of antibiotics to treat anything, and having witnessed the repeated failure of antibiotics in Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel in my work as a nurse I started my treatments with Grapefruit seed extract. It would take a few 4 to 6 weeks of treatment to get it under control. I had to repeat treatment every 6 months to a year, as it would resurface. Then I cam upon ozone therapy. Ozone applied via funneling the gas over the area worked. It would take about 3 days of treatment with an application once a day to make the symptoms go away, but alas the ozone did cause an itchy rash at the skin site that lasted for days. This treatment had to be done yearly. Then MMS came my way. I found that 4 or 5 drops of MMS activated taken twice a day would get rid of all symptoms in 2 to 4 days. I’ve had to repeat treatment about once every three years which is a considerable improvement over the other treatments. I just had a recent bout with it and this time I’m going to treat for 3 weeks and see if I can keep it away longer.
