Just curious if anyone has had any luck at a clinical nutrition center or something of the likes.  I am just now going to one and have been given a few supplements to take.  In addition to that, I, for some odd reason have decided to drink A LOT more water than I had been.  Don't know if its the supplements AND the water or just the water but lately I have had more of an appetite and more energy.  Unfortunately bowel movements haven't progressed much, but they seem to be less painful, with little to no aches afterwards.
I am hopeful yet skeptic at the same time. 
I guess the point of the thread is to give me more hope with positive stories that users may have about the wellness/nutrition centers. . .

I go to a Naturopathic doctor, I don't know if that is the same but one thing he did is give me some supplements, licorice root to strengthen colon, etc., but I haven't been very good about taking them. I can see them causes you to be thirsty. Drinking more water has to be good. Sounds like you're feeling better anyway. I'm real happy with his advice overall.

Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares. 
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed gluten, other intolerances; started diet without gluten, soy, dairy, tomato etc. Replete probiotic first, then Forte pills. 
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!? Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.
