Just wanted to let everyone know about a natural formula I use that helps me so much with my pain and bleeding.
It's a natural substance derived from the chlorophyll of plants. Basically it's a concentrated liquid filled with all the nutrients of plants. Without having to eat as much greenery as a giraffe, b4 it starts to have any effect. Also because with most UC suffers' it goes out quicker then we can absorb it once it's in. I wasn't sure if it was helping but yesterday I was over drinking it and stopped and boy did i pay 4 i today. Infact within 1/2hr of drinking it I notice that the pain subsides and after a day of drinking only a litre of water i can go without pain or blood. I know it sounds like a hippy remedy but it works for me. Might b worth a try. You just get it from a health food shop, I can get it from my local supermarket over here. It only costs about 12 bucks and lasts bit over a week. My 3 fav things cheap, easy and pain free.
 
let me kn how you go  :-)

I have tryed Kyro-Green from the GNC store, and I mixed it when I started juicing when I was on a diet. It didn't taste bad at all, and sometimes I would just drink it with water. It says that it helps the intestional track, so I guess that is why you are feeling better drinking this chlorophll drink.

"all the nutrients of plants"...What plants? Different plants offer different nutrients. Chlorophyll is sold as "cleansing the body" and "improving the immune system". I am skeptical to say it nicely. You say it helps your pain--I can't argue with that. I would only suggest others look into the why and how of it helping.

That's great you found something that helps with your bleeding and pain....I actually use bee propolis which is a natural anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-viral which stopped all my bleeding and all my pain as well...I've been taking it daily for over 4 yrs now and my GI is thrilled that I've had such success with it, it even helped cut back some of my daily BM's....however I found that taking one thing just isn't enough so I added some other things, omegas 3-6-9, prodiem stool bulker, probiotics (primadophilus reuteri), eat healthy, no processed anything, and this along with chamomile tea daily has brought me from 30 BM's a day to 5 or less, formed, pain-free, blood-free BM's a day.

Burli :)

No, I'm either allergic or non-responsive to oral RX and having been in a flare my entire 16 yrs so far, I had to put my skeptisism aside and plunge into the natural route...so glad I did, 5 or less BM's/day is so much better than 30 with severe pain and bleeding.

I have crohns, crohns-colitis ( my CD is affecting my colon) specifically and proctitis on and off, but thankfully it's been off for the last 2 yrs now.

I'm only skeptical because I've spent the last 23 years trying countless combinations of natural remedies and haven't noticed anything (except negative results). You name one and I've probably tried it and some are very difficult to accomplish
It annoys me whenever I think someone is trying to pull one over on the desperate folks in here. Two years ago I tried the very products you said benefit you but I had no improvement, once again. Not to say it doesn't help you, though.

I sure wish I could get by with just using the natural stuff.

Sorry Burli I meant the nutrient Chlorophyll (the part that makes a plant green) that is found in all plants. I'm not trying to sell this product. it's not like i work on commission just thought I'd put it out there. I agree that if you are doing things the natural way you hav to do more than 1 remedy at a time. And cn as how no one has the known origins of what causes this disease it goes without saying that it takes only trial and error to c what works for you i guess.
If you don't mind me asking what other natural remedies are you on.I too am allergic to most meds, having a reaction to any sulphur products and I get a pancreatitis from the rest. So natural is all I got

AKB the brand that makes this is Grants. It's simply says on label Liquid Chlorophyll, internal cleanser and tonic

Wooky, I didn't think you were profit modivated and thanks for sharing. My skeptisism peaked with your statement "all the nutrients of plants"--sorry, but that statement requires more explanation for me. I know chlorophyll is what plants use to convert CO2 and H20 into carbohydrates or food--the photosynthesis process. I am extremely skeptical that companies are selling chlorophyll for humans as cure-alls. I'm skeptical but open for a logical explanation. I'd like to know how it stopped your pain within 1/2 hour of drinking it (that's not really enough time for it to reach your colon so it would have to work systemically. Unless the product you are taking has a pain reliever in it I conclude that your pain relief may be from a placebo effect. This is not bad, if it works for you then glad to hear it. Some are helped by yoga as well. 
 
These chlorophyll extractions come mostly from alfalfa which provides some nutrition but it's not the best nutritional plant source for humans. Alfalfa is mostly used to feed cattle because it provides a lot of food at a minimal cost. How much nutrition it has depends on how it's grown (soil, fertilizer, etc.). Since we already have plently of other green vegetables that taste much better and provide even more chlorophyll and other vitamins and minerals I see no reason to buy this product just based on anecdotal evidence of it helping someone named wooky on a health forum (no offense to you).
 
To answer your question I am two years into a remission but have started to take some probiotics and am looking for more stuff to try as over the last 10 years I don't stay in remission longer than a few years. What usually happens is I get sick with some virus then 2-3 weeks later I start a flare. I figure I'll use stuff that shows reasonable evidence of helping. I've been burned a lot on gimmics (SCD just about killed me--I was really sold on that one after reading the book and all the testimonials).
 
Thanks.
