I haven't posted or even lurked here in a few months. I was hoping to come back here and miraculously see some new discussions about new medicines people have been trying, and, oh boy, they have worked sooo well. I guess I was dreaming...
 
I'm still in "avoidance" mode which probably isn't good, but for me the medications I have left to try don't seem too promising.  Anyone have great success with anything new on the market, or any of the following:
 
RMAT Therapy
SCD / Maker's Diet
New medications in trials
 
I'd love to hear your stories. Thanks.

Nothing seems new to me.

but there is always a few people that has success with SCD / Maker's Diet. Check related topics. They are quite passionate in defending these diets.

It seems that still there is no miracle drug out there, so, keep your mashed potatos and chicken broth in hand.

I tried the SCD Diet for about 4 months last year. I don't actually know if it worked because I was weaning off high dose prednisone during most of it. I ended up going off the diet at about the fifth month. I did feel great during the diet / prednisone, and would consider trying it again. I just need to psych myself into it again as it is a huge commitment.

Hi new.2.this:
It is a diet that consists of meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, nuts and low-sugar fruits ONLY. No starches, grains, pasta, breads and much more. If you search through this forum, go to amazon.com, and just google it, many people have had great success with it.

Here is the main website with more information:
