So those doctors from the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Scripps Clinic, etc, who gave presentations at a IBD seminar I attended last year have their head in the sand? I'll be sure to let them know next time I see them.
In all seriousness, I'm planning to go to another conference soon in which the latest research on probiotics will be one of the topics. I'll try to post what I learn on here.
And by the way, VSL3 was shown to be beneficial in ulcerative colitis, but not in Crohn's. And it was only one study. So the jury is still out. It's not the simple situation some make it out to be.
Thanks for all the feedback, it is really interesting to know how different most doctors can be. I will let you know how the Chlorella turns out, so far so good but it's pretty early to tell yet.
I was wondering too, has anyone taken some form of Fish Oil? I tried that for awhile, but I think it made my D worse, it's hard to tell of course because I was starting a flare at the time.
