I started a natural approach and have felt great since and been in an awsome remission since ( 1 solid bowel movement in the moring no blood, no gas, no urgency.) Heres what i did...
First was diet changes starting around August 3rd this year i was wieghing 214 and flaring since may this year, i stopped alcohol. Then cut my sugars, carbs, fats etc...here is my M-F basic diet still to this day
Breakfast is a 2egg spinich and light cheese omlet and a cranberry drink.
Lunch is a protien shake, with 1 cup plain yogurt, 5g of glutamin, 1 bananna, 1tbsp of cinnamin, 1tsp of honey, 75g of protien.
Snack is a bananna.
Diner is Rice with either baked fish or chicken and fresh veggies and watermelon for desert.
While the diet helped it didnt cure my flare at the time. I noticed big results when i started a heavey dose of probiotics around Sept 4th. I bought Super Acidophilus from GNC its a 10b CFU pill. I started taking 4 a day before each meal, also started digestive enzymes, 2 before each meal. Four days later my syptoms lessened drastically then stopped soon after remission followed and remains to this day. Of course this sparked my interst in probiotics and natural healing, so i have been on a kick since. So fron there on i stuck with the diet and treating myself on the weekends (nothing too crazy) and started some more probiotics and even a yeast detox ( which ends tomorrow).
I started taking garlic tabs and fish oil 1x a day. Oil of oregano x1 a day. I also started taking bifidobacterium 4x a day along with the acidophilus ( also GNC brand 10b CFU). I started taking a prebiotic with FOS to help the probiotics.
At the begining of all this i saw huge chunks of what looked like mucos mixed in with my stool, after a few weeks it disappeared. I truly this it was my body expelling bad bacteria and mucos. Two weeks ago i started a Candida detox treatment, i used a YEASTMAX product, the liquid was brutal at first, and for the first week and half i felt like crap! Tired, headaches but i stuck with it..i even saw some more mucos in the stool at first but now its gone. I finish this detox tomorrow. I also started the Vitamin E enema like 2 weeks ago right before bed, i have old hydro cort enema bottles i used them just pured in the pure V-E and some water and presto. I havent done one in a few days though.
Today I just got VSL#3 and took my first dose, i just added to my protien shake.
I may have forgot something little but think thats the jist of it, i am doing great still. Mind you i am still on some drugs but almost of the prednisone and hope to slowly ween off them all if i maintain remission with just diet and probiotics. Good luck.
