Was just talking to a owner of a health food store who's daughter has had crohns for 19 years and has been doing this for a couple years now and her GI cant believe how much of an improvement she has made with it.  She swears by it.  Just wanted to get some opinions.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

about 6 years ago I heard of an all raw diet. I went to a panel discussion of 5 people, on the top floor of a co-op in Venice California. One 14 year old on the panel had had Crohn's disease and had been completely disabled by it. Her mother heard about the raw food diet being discussed here at
The 14 year old was now able to attend public school and lead a normal life, except for the minor fact that her lunch did not consist of the same things as other kids.

Reading over the sounded fine until I got to the part that said.....

"With a raw food diet that includes meats, you will enjoy many benefits, including... "

Do they actually mean eating raw meat??? or just including cooked meat into a raw food diet?  **eeewwww yikes**

What, you've never had sushi? It is YUM. Expensive though, you have to pay good for cuts of meat fresh enough to be safe, sushi-grade isn't cheap.

Sushi rolls have quickly become my favourite flare food. Lots of sticky rice and good protein there...

I wouldn't try this when having a major flare and I bet it would aggravate a moderate to severe flare.

Yeah, David Klein, who suffered from UC, is a big proponent of the raw food diet. Here are some more links to check out.
It obviously worked for him and some others. It's not something I could do. I had much better luck with the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999
C-scope confirmed UC diagnosis 9/18/2007
Maintenance dose sulfasalazine, back on a pred taper for first flare in years
Probiotics, l-glutamine and fish oil caps. About to start George's aloe vera juice and Mucosaheal.

"certified in nutrition" doesn't really give one the experience to treat UC and it's not obvious that it worked for David. What is obvious is that he is selling and promoting this raw food diet. Also, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet just about killed me--my condition got grave while on it and I followed it to the letter. I like to warn people about these things because they are so attractive at face value. Again, no scientific evidence shows they even help UC. But thanks for sharing...
