Interestingly, theres the flip side apparently :www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/07/110727204414.htm
But to your point, yes, its not genetic. True some may be more easily prone than others. I have no family history of this. But, I grew up in a stressful household, drank chlorinated (and fluoridated?) water from the tap, drank homogenized, pasteurized, homogenized milk, ate from the basket of agribusiness, etc etc. Who knows what my triggers were.
As far as the farm thing goes, its interesting but people had way less IBD before the invention of agriculture, or domestication of cattle, etc, so it likely has more to do with being outdoors and being exposed to different bacteria, or something.
Lialda, 2 tabs per day
pred - was 40 mg per day/ did slow taper, now off, some symptoms persistent
Probably 80% remission (if compared to my worst)- still not great. That 20% still sucks
Occasionally psyllium, l-glut, etc.
Currently still gluten free. Diet consists of some grains, leafy greens, fish, some meat,
veggies, cheese. Diet 85-90% organic
