There is all kinds of talk that goes around these days about how to holistically treat your ulcerative colitis(UC). Just a few days ago, I ran into a parent, who’s child used pot to help with UC symptoms. I wasn’t sure how much this parent wanted to talk about the situation, but it seems as though there might be something to this.
Take for example the mental anguish, and depression that can sometimes go hand in hand with ulcerative colitis. Now, if you smoked a joint or two, maybe that is all you would need to progress through your daily life without having such touch thoughts constantly going through your head. Again, I don’t know, this is all just a theory.
As for marijuana actually healing the inside of people’s colon’s and changing the digestive system for the better…I think that might be a long shot. I for sure could believe it has potential to change someone’s desire to eat, but beyond that, I just don’t know.
As more and more days pass since being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, I am beginning to think more and more that the disease is a mental game just as much as a physical one. There are so many instances I remember where I really thought my life was coming to a close. And at the same time, there are so many times where I thought my life was just filled with some very minor setbacks and colitis was for sure not going to alter my life’s master plan.
If you are using marijuana to control your ulcerative colitis and have some ideas or thoughts you would like to share, please feel free to post them here.
Does medical marijuana work for ulcerative colitis
I have been using medical marijuana for three years now and have not had a bout of ulcerative colitis since using it. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2000. Prior to the medical marijuana I had numerous flareups and had to take prednisone over and over again. This has been a miracle for me with the exception of the attitudes of my grown adult children. They think I am a looser for using it. Catch 22
Sometimes made me feel better
I have been using medical marijuana for quite some time now to help relieve the pain I sometimes get from my UC, and also from joint pains. It sometimes makes me feel better and when it does I'm very grateful, but not always.
