I noticed you have only had some minor blips and was wondering how you avoid the flares. I take a probiotic....Powerdolphilus by CountryLife. Not familiar with l-glutamine. Do you purchase that at a pharmacy or health food store? Also, George's aloe vera juice? Sounds yukky..lol. Oregano oil antibiotic? Is this a regular antibiotic? Just wondering. I've had the craps, no pun intended of this disease. Tired of being prednisone dependent.

Remicade NOT an option. Not a candidate for surgery yet..says surgeon.
