Seems from all I read that this is the hardest area to heal. I have also used Canasa (allergic), hydrocortisone enemas (made it worse), Rowasa, Proctofoam and colazal (which is supposed to work down further). Who knows what will really stop the pain and put us in remission? Prednisone worked for a month - now at 20 mg. for two weeks and bleeding and pain returning.
Prednisone stopped it too. I just don't find any medical evidence of the vitamin E enemas working. A mute point as I cannot administer the enemas and will not ask my husband so stick with what I have for now. I am not "bleeding" - just find some blood mixed with mucous occasionally now.
southernbelle - thanks but I could not find the article. I did get to the website which I am not familiar with. Anyway, if what I am doing does not work in a timely manner - I would only try it if my doctor insisted and agreed. I cannot do the enemas alone - physically and will not ask my husband to help unless matter of life and death - he is too sick himself!
Thanks anyway - so happy it works for you. I am sure I can do just fine!
They sound wonderful! My IBS would not like most of them. Anyway, they stop bleeding but do they heal - there is an ulcer in there - deep and bleeding - just wondering.
I hope others will check carefully into all these although most should not really hurt if they don't help! I guess I will stick with doctor's choices for now. Always happy to hear what has helped others!
Bleeding is a prominent sign of my son's ongoing flare. He has been flaring for 3.5 yrs with the occassional time of no bleeding. The last and longest time by far was 5 months only to start bleeding about a month ago. We have tried it all!!! Even high doses of steroids did not stop it-it's like his colon has a mind of its own.
Right now we have upped his RF+ and Isatis cooling but the bleeding is still there...we'll see.

I can give you links to resources about LDN, if you'd like.
I hope you stop bleeding soon and feel better.
