I never said it was "sunshine and roses," but I'm a firm believer dietary modifications can make all the difference in treating Crohn's and UC. If you'll reread my posts, you'll see I never made any claims of a miracle snake oil cure. It's a diet. No one's selling anything and no one is profiting from it. It works for some folks. It works extremely well for some. It doesn't work for others. But there's no harm in educating yourself on the options and having a careful trial.
I'm sorry if your experience was negative. In some ways, I didn't feel it worked completely for me either. But I don't let my personal experience keep me from at least making others aware of the option. I actually follow a modified version of the diet that's even more restrictive.
