- When I started the spinach/sunflower diet, I got worse for about
two weeks (more bleeding, etc.); but then things started to slowly improve over the course of a couple months. That was two years ago. I've been in remission ever since. No meds at all. I hope you continue with the diet and tell everyone your results. I haven't been back on this forum for a while, and coming back today and seeing that many of the same people are still suffering makes me so sad. I hope you have success and, if you do, that you share your story.
