-Food diary is essential. Docs don't recommend them enough. I eat just about
everything during remission but when I flare I go straight by the book. Literally. I have a book. Rated from 1-10 on how the food item digests.
-Digestive enzymes are a miracle worker when flaring. Take with every meal.
-A good liquid fiber supplement you can handle.
-A quality Bifidus-based probiotic rated in the billions.
-Chammomile with Pau D'Arco tea with some grapefruit seed extract is my drink of choice when flaring sweetened with honey.
-Garlic, oregano, coconut oil, biotin, chewable vitamins, Zinc.
-Gain weight during remission and exercise. Stay in shape. My flare length and severity are dictated by my current health level.
-Learn to handle stressors (environmental, career, family, public)
