If I can handle a lot of fiber, even bulk forming... is my stricture that bad? I mean if the fiber makes it through... I also can handle pretty much all foods.

#2, Can fiber make my stricture worse or better?

Thanks all!!

I didn't know you had stricturing issues, be careful with fibre, don't over-do it, stick to maby just fibre supplements alone and very little fibreous foods cuz of your stricture(s).

bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

I think we all experiment on ourselves, I'm 95% vegan, little fish(salmon) some chicken, free range organic, no DIARY, what can be ok one day can be iffy 2 day's down the road, so for me it's pretty much daily experiment, some days i can wake up, my bowels get cleaned properly and I know it will be a good day if I treat myself with revelance. every morning I eat slow cooked oatmeal with papaya (fresh) either fresh blueberries or oranges, ground flaxseed and kefir.if my stomach is just a little bit iffy i eat more of the papaya, for digestive enzyme proporties in them. 

also and this isn't for everyone, i get home from work at 8:45 pm and my snack is 1 small finely grated raw beet, young beet, I pour a little organic cold pressed olive oil and a little bit of lemon and pinch of salt, beets are really good for you and good fiber, it might not be for everybody, but it sure works for me

If you have a stricture you should stay away from fiber. I have the stricturing/scarring type of Crohns and even in remission I have to watch my fiber intake. You might add a little Benefiber to your food you are preparing, but start it VERY slowly, don't take it like the bottle recommends, add is slowly. Good luck!

Well... I dont have strcturing // scaring type Crohns. I have symptomatic Crohn's. In 9 years with this disease i never had an obstruction or surgery and the only part of my bowel thats narrowed in 15cm of 9 years of damage. Likei said before, Everything I eat will pass through. And I have taking Prodiem Like Pb4 (Bulk Forming) with never an issue.

Just wanted to hear other great minds opinions like you all.
