I'm concerned about
your diet because it doesn't sound healthy, you need more than fish, eggs, yogurt, fruit and vegetables for your body to be properly nourished. I am also sensitive to sugar and milk, but I can, and do eat lots of chicken and on occasion red meat; why not at least experiment by eating some chicken and see how you feel? Doctors, even holistic doctors are not right about
Living on about
4 hours of sleep is not enough for your body to heal itself and having 12 bouts of diarrhea will drain you of nutrients and water, which can increase fatigue and cause low blood pressure. If this is how you feel after being on this program since January 1st, then I think it's safe to say it's not working; why not at least eat meats for now and see how you feel?
Fruits maybe increasing your problems because bananas
, oranges and apples contain sugar and if you consume too many of them, they may increase your symptoms...especially bananas
. Finally, I am a big believer in using diet to reduce UC symptoms, but I believe there is a right way and a wrong way...so please eat some meat and just remember not to use gravy that contains sugar; don't use salad dressing because of the vineagar, etc.
