Hi again all, last week i posted for the first time about my experience and how i became well again, it was brief but it seems as though no one has realy replied and this to me is a concern because when i was unwell i would have eaten anything or followed anyones advice in the hope that it would put me right
I do appreciate that we all do what we want and no-one has a wholy grail and sometimes we can have our dreams shatterd.
So here is the punchline,
all I ask is for someone to test my pineapple theory out, the advice is free and my only gain is to see anyone with UC well again, thats it and dont forget, I too have sufferd in a chronic state and bled nearly every day for 5 years so I'm not just some crazy person on the rant !!
OK for anyone interested,
A fresh pineapple, cut the bottom and top off and cut the prickly outer skin off, cut into 4 segments starting from the middle so you have 4 wedge shaped pieces, then cut, from the thin part of the wedge and all the way down, about 10 mm in so you take out the stalk that runs through the middle (this is oo stringy and tuff) and thats it prepped, if you know how to do this then sorry for the ramble.
After every meal, have a piece of one of the 4 pieces,(if you have 3 meals, 4, 5 etc.. chop the piece into enough to stretch each meal)
All i ask is to post on how it helps or not,
Just a little background, pineapple has a proteolactic enzyme that breaks down protein, and my theory is that we seem to lack this in some way, (I may be wrong and probably am) it also contains minerals so is good for dihorrea because it helps to replace the nutrients lost in this process, it is gentle on the stomach unlike orange, lemons,grapefruit, (these bring on digestive acid hence heartburn acid reflux)
So there you have it,
one other thing, please dont scoff me or make fun of this, if its not for you then ok, please dont put anyone off trying it, pineapple is a natural fruit so it should be ok to eat, you may not like but hey, who likes medication, but if you are not sure then ALWAYS ask advice !!!
if you are willing to test this then please post
also any constructive view would be appreciared and i will do my best to answer any question,
