I was diagnosed with proctitis in Nov. 07, and it became very severe and developed into pancolitis by Sept. 08. I tried numerous medications (see signature) and diets and never had success with any of them. When my doctor began talking about Humira and Remicade, I had already heard about this diet and decided to give it a shot (I was desperate). When I first started the diet (9/31/08) I was taking 13 pills a day plus rectal meds and I was down 13 lbs in weight.
For the first two weeks, my symptoms got worse (probably because I was eating fresh spinach - big no-no). By the third week, I started feeling better. During those weeks I changed the rest of my diet to low-residue, so the only "scratchy" stuff was the spinach. I used sunflower seed butter instead of seeds.
It took several months, but today I take no meds, have gained all my weight back and feel great. The diet gave me my life back.
