I saw a kinesiologist on Wednesday and she suggested that i go wheat free and dairy free as she didn't feel these foods agreed with me. She also suggested that i take Apple cider vinegar mixed in a little water before each meal.

So i changed my diet started introducing some fruit and veg which i have not eaten in years. Carrots, nectarine, butternut (The veg i pureed )

So this morning i had my first BM in 2 days and it was loose, mixed in with some formed stool, but it had turned slightly orange?!

I also started George's always active aloe vera juice 2 days ago.

Do i continue with the diet? Is there something wrong?

That has put my mind to rest slightly. The thing is i was hoping by changing my diet my loose bm would stop, or is this something i will have to stick to for a while before i feel better?

One thing you have to remember is sometimes less the solid food is, less the solid stool. So pureeing your veggies can account for softer/liquidy stool.

And how is it that a kinesiologist is commenting on diet? Applied kinesiology is a chiropractic diagnostic method using manual muscle-strength testing for medical diagnosis and a subsequent determination of prescribed therapy.

Sounds like a holistic quack to me.

She told me my adrenal glands are over active, then she placed some vials on my stomach of different food stuffs and done the muscle strength thing on my arm and was able to deter that I was wheat and dairy intolerant.

So who else thinks she is talking a load of rubbish? Can any of you guys eat wheat or dairy ? Do any of you eat biscuits or chocolate?

Can someone please help I am only 96Ilbs and desperately need to put some weight on and get more healthy, I need to get my colitis under control, and western medicines are no good for me.

the only way i may be able to help is through the raw food diet. I have never done the SCD diet so I can not help. Your right the meds will stop working and the only option for us is to either do raw food, scd, or lose our colon.

if you want raw foods help then come to the web page. sorry its all i can offer. i wish i could cure it with a magic wand like in Harry Potter. I really really really wish.

diet takes a long time. im 106lb to 107lb. want to weight 114. but it will take a little longer for me. Im not perfect altough Im amazingly better.

At least she's suggesting you avoid things that many IBDers tend to have issues with and is encouraging you to eat healthy....the color is more than likely from the carrots and possibly even the apple cider vinegar and other things she suggested....I'd follow the advice and see how things go, you may be pleasantly surprised if it ends up putting you in remission (you won't know until you try).

so have you been on any rectal meds at all through this enlightening journey?

It seems your mind has already been biased regarding what meds can do, as well...you're limiting your intake of food believing everything is wrong.

no one can tell you're intolerant to food inless your symptoms state otherwise. I can't see that if you're not eating a fairly balanced diet that your stools will somewhat bulk out.

Extremes of eating aren't so good for your system, did you have such a bad diet initially?

I think kinesiology is "cool"...but I think if you listen to your body as well, you'll realise that some foods will have you feeling better and other foods mayby not so much.

I don't know where you got the facts that western medicine only treats the symptoms and not the cause...the cause is within your body. The less you react, the more your body won't go into overdrive. It's YOUr genetic make-up. I might also add that the overreaction can be in one's thinking...that too can lead to body overreaction. They're much in the same boat.

Relax a bit....experiment with your diet and try to get as many nutrients through different kinds of foods and supplements. I hope you're getting enough protein through meat as well.

Fibre supplements will help increase/bulk your stool.

Thanks for that, I'll certainly look at the website and see, but I find it hard to even imagine that I could eat raw fruit and veg when I can't even eat it cooked!

I started george's aloe vera juice 2 days ago so I hope that will help me, though I think I am getting a mild detox from it! Even though I had loose bm this morning I didn't stop the aloe vera and I didn't stop the wheat and dairy free diet. I introduced some lackse free cheese today to add some calories and will be started absorb plus next week.

How do you get sufficent calories on the raw food diet? That's what I am having trouble with now.

I am not on any medication apart from george's always active aloe vera juice. I have not been able to tolerate any medication, so it's either diet and alternate meds or surgery.

As for my diet, because I am such a low weight I was told years ago to go on a high protein diet high calorie diet, so was told to eat lots of biscuits, cake, milk etc which looking back was really bad advice as these things are not good for colitis. Now I want to change my diet to try and eat fruit and veg but it just seems to agravate my symptoms.

I do eat lots of meat and things like baked potato, but I am seriously missing chocolate and bread.

yeah, the chocolate and bread are more of a habit I think....for me, anyway. I tend to overdo that stuff in spurts during very stressful periods.

I strongly believe that adding what you need into your "already" diet will eventually have you craving what you don't need.

If you do the extremes, you will surely be disappointed and feel a failure. You want more fruit...add it. If you can't eat it raw, juice it. If you can't juice it, cook it. Change the behaviour, and eventually you won't crave the other stuff. have "some" but it's a process. The more you work on the process, you'll feel more successful rather than believing everything is wrong.

I don't believe the carbs are bad for the colon, but it will surely give you more gas. Carbs come in healthy and not healthy....make logical choices.

Have you not been on any rectal meds yet?

I think eventually you'll find what works for you, but the answers will not be in the extremes....
Balance is definitely the key. If you are mentally distressed about that, read about stress and how to change your thinking patterns. It helps a lot!

Oh, and I've been where you are and didn't know what at all to eat. What i did find was that milk products give me more discomfort and I choose when to have them. If I have too much, I have discomfort. No mystery. It's a matter of choice....for the more choices one has, the less stress there is.

I urge you to try rectal meds at least....

I also think that pred can set many up for medication failure. Did the doc put you on the pred first or after the asacol?

Hang tough...it eventually gets worked out.

you are right about the stress, it certainly makes matters worse. I am always worrying about food. The thing is i change the way i eat and expect not to have loose bm straight away, i am starting to learn it doesn't work like that.

I am going to get some Natren probiotics to put in my absorb plus shakes, i hope the good bacteria will do be good. The aloe vera sems to be giving me a mild detox, but i shall still persist with taking it!!

Sounds like quackary to me. Those methods will NOT determine a food intolerance, the only way to do that is to keep a food diary to figure out what's ailing you.

I can eat dairy fine, but a lot of UC'ers are lactose intolerant. Same for carbs. Like I said, keep a food diary to figure out what specifically bothers YOU, this disease is not one size fits all. And chocolate? NEVER giving that up. It's bad enough this disease took my coffee and sodas.

As for gaining weight, I suggest juice smoothies (Naked smoothies got me through parts of college) or nutrition drinks. They're calorie dense, but don't have the fiber that irritates a lot of us. Just make sure to read ingredients for the nutrition shakes.

Most definitely a holistic quack! Yes I eat wheat and dairy, at least once a week I have a footlong cold cut subway sandwich on whole wheat and a pint bottle of whole milk for lunch.

Many IBDers do have sensitivities to wheat and glueten and dairy and aren't even aware especially if they have an IBD which can often mask the symptoms of wheat/glueten and dairy intolerances, so she likely isn't a quack.

I had no idea that I had become lactose intolerant because my IBD masked the symptoms of it, once I got tested and it was confirmed that I had severe lactose intolerance and I dealt with it (probiotics) then things in general became much better.

Well....she might have some "different" approaches but still her verbal advice is quite sound, many people are told the same by dieticians (for IBDers and even IBSers to avoid dairy, wheat, gluten as those do tend to be pretty high on the list of exacerbators for those with gut issues).

I used to be a HUGE skeptic and I got to a point that was so bad with my crohn's colitis I had to put my skeptisism aside and go the natural route and although I'm not 100% in remission I am certainly 100 times better than I ever was before (take into consideration that I'm either allergic or non-responsive to traditional oral RX use for IBD) so I try to be a little more open-minded especially when it comes to stuff like this. I've had crohn's colitis for 18 yrs straight and for the majority of those yrs I suffered miserably so I'm glad to have found what's given me some relief and if I hadn't put my skeptisism aside I'd probably killed myself by now (yes, it was that bad).

Can you eat nuts and seeds on this diet? They are high in fat and might help with the weight. Yes. Many people who have IBS/IBD can not tolerate wheat and/or diary. For me it's fructose that I can't tolerate. I can eat wheat and biscuits. I can have dairy when I'm in remission. I do have to take Lactaid when I just got out of a flare. I can't have diary when I'm in a flare. I also have to be very careful not to consume too much chocolate. I don't think it's due to the dairy though. Probably something else in the chocolate, after all it is toxic to dogs.

I agree with Quincy that you should eat as balanced as possible. You should not eliminate a food unless you know it bothers you. Why does your kinesiologist feel that wheat and diary don't agree with you? Did she say this based on what you said? In other words, have you been noticing that wheat and diary bother you? If so, then yes you might do well to stay away from them for awhile or permanently, depending on how your body reacts to them.
Joy - 47 yrs and counting; Dx Colitis Dec 06 (also had IBS); Currently in remission

Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.

What works for me: Fecal transplantation, Probiotics, Anti-inflammatory foods, No HFCS, No foods high in fructose, No artificial sweeteners, No pro-inflammatory foods when flaring, Vitamins, Lexapro (for stress).

I didn't tell the kinesiologist anything, she just told me this after she performed the vial on my tummy thing. I do know that dairy irritates, so i thought i should use a lactose free milk and cheese. She told me that i shouldn't even eat that, but i am because otherwise i feel like i am eating nothing.

I just feel like i am getting no bulk if i can't eat bread! I have just substituted it for a jacket potato, but too many potatoes are not good as they give me wind!

I had been keeping a food diary, and when i ate lots of white bread and processed food, i always had written that i had wind, or felt nausea or more pain. So maybe i do have some sensitivities. Saying that i have wind on this diet :o(

All this change, and extra worry because my consultant said i am going to die from this :O(

- Alcoholic beverages
- Avocado
- Chocolate (all forms)Chocolate, coffee, tea, and other caffeine Contain caffeine, theobromine, or theophylline, which can be toxic and affect the heart and nervous systems.
- Coffee (all forms)
- Fatty foods
- Macadamia nuts
- Moldy or spoiled foods
- Onions, onion powder
- Raisins and grapes
- Salt
- Yeast dough
- Garlic
- Products sweetened with xylitol
-Milk and other dairy products Some adult dogs and cats do not have sufficient amounts of the enzyme lactase, which breaks down the lactose in milk. This can result in diarrhea. Lactose-free milk products are available for pets.

The above are all toxic to dogs. Dogs are sensitive to a class of chemicals called methylxanthines. Caffeine and theobtomine are members of that family. Dogs simply cannot metabolise and excrete methylxanthines as efficiently as humans. The half life of those compounds in the human body is in the order of 2 to 3 hours, in the dog it is more like 18 hours.

In a dog the compounds are taken up by the liver and transmitted via the bile into the intestine. They are then converted back into the original methylxanthines for another circuit through the animal. This repeats itself a number of times and instead of getting rid of the substances the dog keeps repoisoning itself-

There are many formulations of chocolate with varying amounts of caffeine and theobromine. The lethal dose of sweet milk chocolate for a dog is 2 oz per kill gram of bodyweight. For a 5 kilogram dog this would be about 280 grams. A lethal dose of milk chocolate for a 25 kilogram would be about 1.4 kilograms.

Dark chocolate is at least 10 times as lethal. A 25 kilograms dog could die from the methylxanthines in 5 ounces.

Could aloe vera juice cause stomach irritation? Everytime I drink it in the mornings my tummy feels like it is burning? I also seem to have an increased amount of gas?
Ulcerative colitis for around 15 years untreated (Im am 28 years old now)

ASACOL, PREDNISONE, PENTASA do not work for me. Western medicines only suppress the symptoms they do not heal the underlying cause!

Now looking at alternate medicines, diet change and alternate therapies. Jini patel Thompson - Healing the gut is extremely good, as well as Breaking the vicious cycle -SCD

Started Japanese Acupuncture, Therapeutic massage and Kinesiology

Calcium 3 x a day for osteoporosis

It's suppose to help stomach irritation..I don't use it myself, but how much are you drinking? Are you drinking a good quality brand?
