Has anyone tried this diet for their UC or Crohns Disease. I bought the primal Defense and the Digestive Enzymes, but I haven't really used them. I am stuck in between using conventional medicines or Holistic medicine. I don't know if I can use these medicines while on Prednisone and Lialda.
Primal Defense and digestive enzymes aren't medicines and will not interfere with prescript
ion medications. Primal Defense is a probiotic that includes soil based organisms. It tried using it. At first it seemed to help, then I got rapidly worse. Now, I stick to Natren's probiotics which have a proven track record of effectiveness and safety.
In general, most natural approaches - probiotics, digestive enzymes, omega-3 supplementation, aloe - are all safe enough to use in conjunction with prescription meds, although it's always a good idea to tell your doc what you're taking.
