I've been drinking it for 2 weeks and it definitely has improved things for me. The only lingering symptom I still have is a bit of blood every 3-4 days, but that seems better too as it's a lot less blood than when I started drinking it. Stools are now always formed and generally 1-2 times a day ( was 1-4, sometimes 5 times a day when I started and stools were always soft and only semi formed). This AM I started taking Uceris again to see if I can get that last bit of blood to go away. I had a week of Uceris left from when I was on it in December. Still drinking Nopal though because I definitely think it has helped. My hope is that the Uceris will be enough along with the Nopal & Asacol to get that last bit of inflammation healed.
Guardian, that Nopal water is made from the fruits not the leaves so not sure it's the same thing. A Mexican grocery store is the only place I could find them around here. They sold them with the thorns still on them at half the price of getting the ones with the thorns all removed. I opted for the de-thorned leaves because it was still really cheap! I got 4 leaves for $2.99. That's enough for 4 pitchers of nopal water and a pitcher lasts about
I'm impatient to get completely healed -- been in this flare since June, but am so so SO much better now! Based on what I have seen so far with the nopal water, I suspect that it alone could possibly get everything completely healed, but I am adding a week of Uceris in the hopes I can speed up the process. I plan to continue to drink the nopal for at least a few more weeks before I give up on it.
