I just can't even begin to pay attention anymore to people or programs that claim they can stop or cure UC and/or crohns......it even has become a pet peeve for me.
Millions and millions of $'s spent on research....and yet no except the foks trying to sell a supplement or a diet have found "the cure". At the very least it tells me that the person offering this diet really doesn't know anything about the diseases they say they can cure...and at the worst they are insulting our inteligence, taking advatage of our suffering, lying to us and possibly making things worse for us health wise. If it really worked wouldn't folks be scrweaming it from the mountain tops?????
This disease is so different for each of us that I fear there may never be a cure....most med's like Humira or tysabri don't cure as much as they treat the symptoms....quick taking them and look what happens....go off that "special" diet and see how long we stay symptom free.
if these drugs and diets really cured the diseases wouldn't we...shouldn't we be able to stop taking the drugs or quit the diet?
At best this diet may work for you or provide relief (a small or maybe great amount) but I really doubt it will cure it and any claim along those lines is IMO mis-leading
