Ulcerative Colitis Cure - Vitamin E Enema & Diet by Sheldon Gesensway

This message was posted at "Ulcerative Colitis Forum"

I CURED my severe condition of ulcerative colitis over 20 years ago with a
vitamin E enema you prepare yourself and diet.

No other medication. No problems since. Results within one week!
The correct diet of fiber binds the stool and removes the constant colon
irritation produced by wrong food choices and gives the open sores a chance
to heal.

The vitamin E enema works with the body immune system to heal the colon wall.

Dr. Bernard Halperin diagnosed my ulcerative colitis about 1964. He treated
my condition for 5 years until his death. He was an excellent doctor. He
tried every drug then used, but my condition persisted. Through the
intervening years the condition subsided but remained. No regular bowl
movements. No stool form. No control when nature called.

In June of 1980 after a stressful year, crime related, the bleeding
increased and I checked into Hialeah Hospital where I was given a blood
transfusion and corticoid enemas.

In the early months of 1981, I went to the Veterans Hospital because my
condition became intolerable. I was given further transfusions and advised
to have a subtotal colectomy.

I also received hepatitis C.

After leaving the hospital, my previous condition continued. I took this
opportunity to try something I had given some thought to. This from an
experience I had with receding gums. By dissolving every day a capsule of
Vitamin E next to my gums for three months, it stopped the problem.
Learning this from a reader's suggestion in Prevention Magazine. I have
since seen on TV a Keyes technique shown on a program called Universe#121
CBS showing bacteria as the probable cause of gum problems. The
periodontist I saw said it could not be stopped. That was over 40 years
ago. My gums are fine. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and

The contents of three capsules of 400 IU mixed vitamin E (d-alpha
tocopherol and dl-alph tocopheryl acetate 393.4 mg.) were emptied into a
small amount of distilled water (same volume as a corticoid enema). This
mixture was sucked up with a baby enema that I squeezed into my rectum. I
retained the mixture. Nothing happened. Over a period of four days I
gradually increased the mixture until I reached 10 capsules. At that level
the change was DRAMATIC. There was a normal looking bowel movement the next
morning. The first I could remember. The intermediate bleeding stopped. One
bowel movement with form a day.

I started gorging all types of food that I denied myself for years. Salads,
ice cream and vegetables of all kinds. I gained weight gradually. This
produced 2 or 3 bowel movements (controlled) per day with form. The quality
of my life turned 180 degrees.

However, if I did not take the enema once a day the bleeding would start on
the third day. These phenomena were reported to the doctors at the hospital
and duly noted in my records. This was continued for a very long time and
nothing was done to investigate the matter. At the hospital, a barium enema
showed a positive change in my colon. They believed it was a placebo
effect. Twenty years is a long placebo effect.

I tried increasing the amount of vitamin E until I reached 8000 IU (20
capsules). There were additional steps. It worked. I was taking one multi
vitamin & mineral tablet + 500 mg. vitamin C + one 400 IU vitamin E.After
reaching the increased dose, there was no need for further vitamin E
enemas. I have stopped the vitamin E by mouth many years ago. I never see
blood in my stool. Since that time, there has never been a problem with my
colitis. Bowel movements are regular in the morning with varying degrees of
form. I found fruit lessened form and limited fruit to one banana. I also
use fresh vegetables. Since I read freezing destroys fiber cell structure,
I get a better stool form result. There as been no problems with colitis
for twenty years (since my first vitamin E enema) I consider myself cured.
My colonoscopy and biopsy results have always been satisfactory.

Enclosed find three pertinent papers, Gastrointestinal Blues, the possible
influence of receding gums on disease and a diet by Elaine Gottschall that
works well for colitis patients which is based on the premise that certain
foods leave a carbohydrate residue in the digestive tract upon which
bacteria feed and cause problems. I ate many of these forbidden foods for
many years without a problem. I judge the worth of foods only by the form
of my morning bowel for many years. Which has been working well.

In 1960 I worked at the Worcester Foundation of Experimental Biology where
I was interviewed by Dr. Gregory Pinkus and put in charge of one of his
assay labs.

The vitamin E enema is a simple non-dangerous procedure it will be very sad
not to investigate its effectiveness for a terrible disease.

My present doctor is Scott Halperin son of my original doctor (305)
821-5261. He has copies of the only records I was able to obtain from the
Veterans Hospital. Don't forget the receding gums. It may take three months
but it cured the condition. A dip of the original recession remains. I
started using the computer 7 months ago and found these medical sites and
sent this information to several research hospitals. My doctor sent this
information to a pharmaceutical research company. So far no reply. I am
beginning to believe its either too simple a cure or too unprofitable.

Vitamin E enema Procedure

1. Buy a small size enema bulb about 4 inches long. A bulb end ear syringe
is fine.

2. Day 1 start by emptying 2 capsules of vitamin E into 1.5 tablespoons of
distilled water (the same volume as a corticoid enema) 800 I U total. Do
this by sticking a pin into a capsule and squeeze out the contents. Suck up
the mixture (it does not dissolve in the water). I used a small tapered
wine glass.

3. Use as an enema but retain the mixture.
On the second day empty 4 capsules and repeat the same procedure.

4. On the third day, empty 6 capsules and repeat the same procedure.

5. On the 4th day empty 8 capsules repeat.
Up to this point I received no visible results.

6. On the 5th day, empty 10 capsules that's 4000 I U of vitamin E. The
following morning was the first time I saw stool form since I could
remember. No blood. Controlled bowel movements. Ulcerative colitis was no
longer a problem. I will advise the best procedure at this point.

I had to repeat this every day for a long time or on the 2nd day the gut
would revert to
its old habits. No side effects. Take the enema after a bowel movement and
if possible at bedtime or in the morning and continue to lie on your side a
while to give the enema a chance to circulate through out the colon. If at
first you lose some material, don't worry you will get enough of the
vitamin E to work. I kept telling the doctors at the hospital they kept
smiling. Stay at the 10 capsule doses then let me know of your results and
I will advise you further.

I finally increased the dose by 2 capsules a day until I reached 20 capsules.
Since that time, the ulcerative colitis has never been a problem.


The vitamin E mixture used should be all- natural and have the formula
d-alpha tocopheral acetate and NOT dl-alpha tocopheryl that is synthetic.

I have never taken another enema or ANY medication. At that time, I was
also taking one multi vitamin& mineral table+ 500 mg of vitamin C + one
capsule of 400 I U vitamin E. I stopped the vitamin E soon after. I even
bought a motorcycle and put 15,000 miles on it. Remember I am only relating
the facts of my experience and will be willing to answer your questions.
Please advise me of your results so it can be of help to others. No fruit
or fruit juice. Follow the diet.

Right after a bowel movement is the best time to use the enema for that day.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Do not rinse the bulb after use and just clean the outside.
You can spread a small amount of petroleum jelly around the tip for a
comfortable insertion.

Let comfort be your guide.
