I have spent so much money trying dietary and herbal cures and nothing has even slightly helped my symptoms. I tried SCD diet for 3-4 months, I was buying all sorts of expensive ingredients. I tried herbal products, liquids, bitters compounds, walnut extract, teas, fermented foods, probiotics, dietary restrictions... I feel like I have tried almost everything. There are still some supplements I would like to try but i am not too hopeful that I will see any improvement. For me, drugs are the only thing that have helped. Wish I could say otherwise.
Diagnosed with mild proctitis in March 2007: Treated with Canasa (as needed)
December 08: Began treating with Asacol 400mg (9/day) + Canasa 2x/day - Anemic
May 09: Off Canasa, taking Asacol (9/day)
Back on Canasa every other night + Asacol (9/day) + Probiotics + Iron
Reducing to 6 Asacol/day + Canasa + Probiotics + Iron - So far so good!!! -SPOKE TOO SOON! Back to 9/day...
