hi! tjanks for your expereinces.
and what do you suggest to who has bigger flare? at my lost blod test my crp was 12 .
what should i do according your opinioon.
Briggs protocol is very interesting theory....very very....
somebody shoukd look for Mr. Briggs.
Well, I just had a full blown flare. For this one I started with 9mg of budesonide for a day or so, and then started a Z-Pac 5-day course (500mg day 1, 250mg day 2-5) in parallel with the budesonide. Flare was completely gone within 48hr. Started taking probiotics, 2xpills twice daily starting on day 3 of the Z-Pac course.
The point being, the Z-Pac killed pretty much all of the gut bacteria (and ending the flare), and the probiotics are being used to replace the flora with known tolerable bacteria (to maintain remission / avoid resurgence of the virulent bacteria).
That flare was in full effect last Sunday (12/29). Flare was gone by Thursday. Totally back to normal in complete symptomatic remission as I type this - had a completely normal BM this morning with zero blood or mucous. I call that resounding success! If this maintains for another week, I believe I am completely out of the woods again - just hope the remission holds (I took the final 250mg of azithromycin, and final 3mg budesonide approx 24hrs ago).
So... Try that if you are so inclined...
