Before you go to diet extremes, consider trying a good probiotic preparation if you aren't already taking one. Antibiotics usually set us off because they kill bacteria indiscriminately, including the beneficial bacteria in the gut. Probiotics replace these good bacteria. I take Primadophilus Reuteri from Nature's Way. Others take Culturelle, VSL#3 or a variety of other preparations. I take probiotics every day, whether I'm flaring or not.
