June 8, 2007: Sasha had a colonoscopy and endoscopy due to blood in his stool. The results showed that he has chronic inflammation, the tissues in his large intesting (Sigmoid area) are thin and fragile, and he was diagnosed with colitis. Because of the thin tissue lining in the colon allowing blood to leak out into his body it was expected to require surgery to remove part of his colon however months and months of heavy steroids and Periactin healed his gut. Supplements helped so much in the beginning however they just were not strong enough to take care of his gastrointestional issues by themselves.
Sasha did not take every supplement listed at once but over time he has taken rounds of all of the below. However at one time he was on an average of 10 supplements a day.Spectrum Complete: 1/4tsp 2x’s EnZyme Complete DPP-IV: 1 at meal
Vitamin A: 2 dropsGlucosamine: ½ capsule 2x’s

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:
www.hypertc.com We visited The Hyperbaric Therapy Center in Cummings, GA (near Atlanta) for our first rounds of Hbot. They use mild hyperbaric chambers and I was able to get inside of the chamber with Sasha for every treatment. The 20 treatments at this facility proved to be more beneficial than the last year of therapies he had gone through.
We later decided to do hard chamber hyperbaric and found that the results were better for our son. I spent several months at a facility in the southeast which I will not name because I do not feel that it is a safely ran facility after our last visit. My son did make gains from the treatments.
The last two years I have been taking Sasha to a local facility in Birmingham, AL that recently closed down due to small patient flow. It was a top quality facility with certified HBOT techs on hand at all times as well as a medical doctor. They used a Monochamber so Sasha did not have to wear a hood. He was also old enough at this point where he was happy to get inside by himself. Sasha has done a total of approximately 200 hours of Hyperbaric treatments and we will continue to do them as long as finances allow.
