I have learned the hard way, several times, that the only way to treat this is with the right medicine. I've read so many books about how they were magically symptom free from this or that but my doctor told me I needed to stick to my pills. I was, and still am, the type of person who hates taking medicine and will only take something when I absolutely need it. I thought I could manage all this on my own and stopped taking my pills when I felt better but it doesn't work like that, you just get more sick. Other than some supplements that go along with the right medication there is no natural treatment for this disease. Medication every day sucks but it becomes routine and its what we need to stay healthy.
