ok I'm was in 5years of remission and started to flare couple of weeks back. I'm always keep an eye on alternative medicine as well but only try them when I flare because does not want to ruin anything while in remission. I was aware of RO theory long time back. Old Mike has discussed this here in number of threads. So now I had a flare, I've decided to give a go.. I have included grape seed extract and sulpharophane and also upgraded the usual medicine. I felt alot of increased air in my colon but the systems are controlled, so I'm ok with it. My only concern is my period was about 7 days early, this rarely happens to me. I know curcumin can be a blood thinner and culturally we strictly avoid turmeric during pregnancy. I would like to get information from any female followers of these protocol.
In the meantime another recent research on anti oxidant therapy .Researchers designed a silicon-based agent that successfully generated hydrogen continuously in the mouse gastrointestinal tract in an ulcerative colitis (UC) model. The hydrogen served as an antioxidant that could eliminate the reactive oxygen species shown to induce the chronic inflammation responsible for the damage and symptoms caused by UC.
I can't really give you medical advice about
your period as I'm not a doctor, but curcumin can definitely thin blood so maybe that had something to do with it. Sulforaphane should be started slowly. I take 20mg but I started with 1/5 of that by breaking
open the pill and splitting it up.
The research you showed is interesting but I feel these newfangled methods are unnecessary. Natural antioxidants work, we just need to know the right ones. We don't need silicone hydrogen-delivering technology.
