Hi there, I have to say this, my name is Stella Marie! Is this for real? I have never in my life found another Stella Marie.
Diag. 2005, Severe Flare Up for a YEAR, Remission for 2 years, no maintanance, I was really convinced the Doctors made the wrong diagnosis. Live in the country and had really contaminated well water when my husband and I moved into our new house. 40 times over the potable guide lines in Canadian drinking water. So I Didnt even look into the disease, I healed (or so I thought) and was told nothing from the Doctors at the time.
Came back like a VENGENCE in Sept 08 and have been bleeding since. Sept 09' Currently on Plain Yogurt, Multi Enzymes, Vit. D, Mulit Vit, Florastore, Aciddophillus, Asacol 2 - 3x a day with Salofalk suppository morning and night.
I rarely eat carbs, grow almost all my vegetables and fruits for Summer and Fall ONLY.
Everything else organic, I never add refined sugar to anything, sometimes unpasturerized honey. I rarely drink coffee, no Cows milk, only Almond milk. Had my gallbladder out a year before diagnosis and quit smoking a month before first Flare Up in 2005.
FYI: Prednisone turned me into a sweating Pyscho Clean EVERYthing Woman, even when I was sitting on the toilet I would ask my husband to pass me a broom so I keep sweep sitting on my throne. lol!
I dont want to go back on it.
