Hey Weirdbear, sorry you are still flaring. I am sort of the same in that I cna't lower pred without reflaring, and even with Remicade I still have lots of pain (though it has at least mercifully formed my stools well and stopped any bleeding.) I saw the link posted for the Canadian brand of vit E that is not so thick and gooey i..e would mix better into water for an enema, but can someone post a link to a source of 'thinner' vit E in the U.S.? (Or PM me if that is not permitted by forum rules, but I am guessing in this case it is permissible.) Thanks...
P.S. I am doing spinach and sunflower seeds right now too. I am tolerating spinach very well, no problems. I canot risk taking seeds but I have tried pure sunflower butter. I think it flares me a little bit though, by being simply too high in carbs for my own sensitivities. So I may be stuck with spinach and supplements, eg some magnesium and beta carotine along with plenty of spinach.
