beachlife: I'm just saying that your results are going to be one sided, biased and prejudiced. Your original post gives the impression that anyone who has gone into remission for years (doesn't say anything about
meds) is welcome to take part and yet your subsequent posts refer to stories of people who have been off meds for years. So, you are not including anyone who has been in remission for years while taking meds (even the 5ASA's). I take this to mean you are only reporting inspiring stories of "heros" for those who have achieved remission through alternative means and your information will offer no proof that they were actually ever diagnosed with IBD at all and no proof that their stories are even accurate and truthful, other than their word. I'm still not understanding why we have to enter our email addresses just to view any information you have.
I know you post on here from time to time talking about
alternative treatment options and yet every alternative treatment option you have personally tried or asked about
has never worked on you. What is your current story? I must confess I find it a little weird that you suggest or recommend alternative therapy solutions and inspiring stories to others when you haven't even found one that works on yourself yet. I know you do Yoga and tried Chiropractors and didn't achieve remissions with those yourself. I believe it is a little hypocritical to report the stories of "heroes" who have gone into remission with Yoga and Chiropractors, etc., when you have tried those and they didn't even work for you while at the same time not reporting the inspiring stories of those who have gone into remission while taking very safe meds like the 5 ASA's. I personally think you should preface your work by admitting that you are only looking at this from the alternative standpoint so that you don't mislead people into thinking that the only way to achieve remission is by following the hero's stories that have gone the alternative route. There are probably one hundred times the number of patients who have gone into remission using the safe 5 ASA meds than there are those who have used any particular atlernative method to achieve remission.
