Dr. Ronald Hoffman is a highly recommended integrative GI in the NYC area. Check out his Web site: http://www.drhoffman.com/
And his treatment plan for UC: http://www.drhoffman.com/page.cfm/169
Very interesting. he's got info on all the areas we've discussed on this forum including the SCDiet, l-glutamine, whipworm, etc, etc.
pretty high fees too and he doesn't accept insurance, you have to file it yourself and hope they pay some of the charges.
I guess I'll keep doing my own doctoring. It's been working better than what the medical community has offered me in the last 10 years.
Ulcerative colitis 10 years
Jan 2010 started SCD diet but modified by me (tried 5 years earlier no improvement)
Jan 2010 first time in 10 years bleeding stopped, better behaved colon
Started reducing meds 6 weeks after colon improved with diet-all OK
Diet: Protein(meat/fish/eggs,no soy),nuts(soaked),non-starch veg(no potatoes),no grains or bread
eliminated carbohydrates, no dairy except small amt. hard cheese, no fruit/juice (blueberries OK)
Daily: fish oil, Vit D3 1000 2Xday with oil/fat, greens juice, sunflower seeds, probiotic acidophilus pill
Highly recommend: the book "Life without Bread" and the SCD Diet
