I was diagnosed with PSC almost 2 years ago now, im 53 years old. Since my diagnosis i was also diagnosed with Celiac disease and had numerous pre cancer polyps removed from my bowels. After numerous trips to emergency and batteries of tests, it was found that my gallbladder needed to be removed due to infection.
I have been going every three months to Toronto General to see the Liver specialists, and they are amazed at the response my body has had to A: being Gluten Free, B: eating healthier, C: taking many different Supplements that by the way were never authorized by my specialists!
Here is the list in order of what i take every day as set up by my Holistic Doctor along with the help of my Chinese doctor/ acupunturist.
L- Glutamine Powder 1 tsp with water the moment i open my eyes!
With a light breakfast:
Zinc 50mg slow release,
Vitamin B advanced 3 daily
Gandha 600 2 times per day
Flax oil 1tbs
Nutra sea Omega 3 fish oil 1 tsp
UDO,s Probiotics super 8 plus
UDO,s Ultimate digestive enzyme, right after big meals, or meals with meat protien
Viatmin C 500 2 per day
I first started on a regime of drops, that are to numerous to list here to help my lymphatic system and my adrenal glands as noted by my holistic therapist.
She felt that we cant try and treat an auto immune disorder directly, but more so help the body to function properly and help all the systems, including the liver to work better.
I felt like crap at the start of the journey, but as i progressed, i started feeling better, my liver and blood numbers are back to normal for at least a year, the fact that i dont each gluten, no more indigestion , bloating, headaches, body aches etc.
I was amazed after doing one of three liver flushes, that my shoulder pains, abdominal pains disappeared.
My last visit the specialists said, see you in a year! They are scratching their heads, and asked me to detail what ive done, for my next visit.
This may not work for everybody, but i can tell you, that the holistic approach worked for me and being gluten free has had an affect on my liver,
My skin feels different, i am growing hair like never before, i sleep better even though i have severe sleep apnea, i have a sense of better well being and i can say that fighting the demon ( depression) is a battle won by better body health.
Remember the day you were told you have PSC and that your life may be shorter than you think or want, all this scared the crap out of me and i was depressed until i started the regime of fighting for a better healthier me!
Best to all
