I eat spinach at least three times a week. The sunflower seeds I do without because I also have diverticulosis and cannot eat seeds of any kind. I don't credit the spinach for remission. I find that remission comes when it darn well pleases to come. Usually my flares last on the average of three months. Last year I had a doozy of a flare, hospitalized for ten days and the flare lasted seven months. This last flare...hopefully in remission now...lasted from mid May till about two weeks ago.
If I wanted to give credit to remission, it goes to a combo of meds (prednisone, 6MP, Colazal, Cort enemas and Canasa) and the chiropractor who also does acupuncture. Think I will continue going to him. Off the prednisone now, continuing with the 6MP and Colazal...no enemas or suppositories.
