No families take so little medicine as those of doctors, except those of apothecaries.

thanks for those two papers. scanned them, will read again more thoroughly.

will probably share this one with my rheumatologist; he seems happy when I do give him good finds.

One of the first visits I had with this rheumy: after asking me questions that included questions pertaining to my gut and me answering that yes, I've had GI issues, pretty much my whole life, though they came to a head when I turned 30. Then he said, "I believe all spondyloarthropathies begin in the gut."

That one statement really hit home for me.

His dx of me and treatment has largely been due to both the arthritis component and GI inflammation component to what I am dealing with.

Thinking back, constipation before I even started school. Learned how to manage it, but really just a ticking time bomb all those years.

And stool sample testing by a naturpath showed I was devoid of lactobacilli and had "probably pathogenic bacilli" in the stool sample.

Once fecal transplant becomes main stream where one can simply do a colon cleanse and then pop a bunch of bacteria encapsulated in pill form, I'm all over it.

Last time I visited my rheumy, we discussed such a bold move in the future. The rheumy thinks its a really good idea for me.

Though I love what Humira has done for me these past 6 months, it would also be great to actually cure it and not have to rely on biologics.

Well, one day at a time.
