I didn't have any pain with my first flare, did with my second and a little with my third.
Dx: UC Proctitis 2006
None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
Started Meds: Apr 9 08 500mg 5ASA (salofalk) to ease flare, tapering, stopped.
Diet: Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet. Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes).
Added: tumeric and probiotics.
