I'm pretty convinced that when I stop eating - symptoms calm down. This is the second time it happened. Why?
The only symptom I suffer from right now is bleeding. When I go back eating bleeding pops out to say hello...
Congratulations, you may have discovered on your own what might be closely related to what is known as the elemental diet
. It is commonly given to severe Crohn's patients who require hospitalization. In more severe cases it is the use of a gastric feeding tube or intravenous feeding, of liquid nutrients in an easily assimilated form.
It can be an effective non-toxic alternative to corticosteroids. It consists of all the essential nutrients with protein provided as predigested or isolated amino acids. Of course it isn't a long term solution and relapse is common when patients resume normal eating.
A more long term solution might be the elimination
diet that is the conventional treatment for common allergies. I don't follow the true elimination diet but keep a food diary that seems to work for me. Start out with something that you know is safe such as chicken broth or apple sauce. Then add one food at a time to determine if they are safe to eat.
Everyone is different but you can check our signatures to see what works for us.
