I was in a horrendous flare when I was prescribed a 3 week course of Flagyl for my perianal abscess. Miraculously the Flagyl seemed to not only cure my abscess but also ended my flare. I have since taken advantage of my good fortune by taking probiotics every day since to keep the bad guy bacteria (such as C Diff) from regaining control of my gut. VSL#3 works, and S Boulardii is useful while actually on Flagyl because it is a probiotic yeast that cannot be killed by antbiotics. I credit watching my diet and regularly taking probiotics (good bacteria) for maintaining my remission.
Male/59 DX ulcerative colitis Feb08, possible Crohn's colitis DX Mar10.
No Meds, allergic to Mesalamine. Remission since Mar10. Food journal instead of SCD. Psyllium seed mixed with VSL3 especially helpful.
Boswellia, E. Coli Nissle (Mutaflor), turmeric, fish oil, S. Boulardii, resveratrol, multivitamin, extra D3, K2, C, high gamma E, magnesium, phos choline, glutamine. Lots of fruit & vegetables(but no plums or kale), no soda, no HFCS, no trans fat, no shellfish, tea instead of coffee, watch gluten, few processed foods, no carrageenan. Nature created all of the locks, therefore Nature has all of the keys
