I used it for two years beginning in 1982 -- along with aloe vera gel, flax seed tea, and yoghurt with whey. Those two years that I turned my back on medications (after being diagnosed in 1981) and tried the natural route to wellness gave my smouldering disease time to build a dandy stricture that resulted in years of nasty obstructive episodes, despite the host of medications that I was then forced to try. I lasted until, I finally ended up with an emergency resection in 1993. I'm nothing, if not stubborn and I was determined I wouldn't have surgery until it was absolutely necessary. It eventually was.
For me, these natural remedies only fed my denial. I don't think, however, there is anything intrinsically bad about any of these natural supplements, pb4, except their cost. You have a really good handle on your disease, have sensitivities that preclude opting for conventional medications, and are managing it well, so I will be interested to know whether you derive any benefit.
For others out there, however, I would caution against throwing your drugs away and relying on alternative medicines. If you are in remission and moving towards health, maybe, it's worth a try. As long as you remain rooted in reality. You've got to deal with what is not what you'd like it to be and if you notice the slightest deterioration in your health status, act on it, don't wish it away. This disease can be incidious, working under the radar, building up strictures even while you feel ok and then bam you're dealing with the consequences every day and no drug is going to make it better at that point.
