"Colitis Case Closed"

Posted by Evan Geminika on May-02-07, 09:55 AM (GMT)
Hi,

I have Ulcerative Colitis since 1999.
From 1999-2005, my UC is up and down.
But most of the time it was down.
Until 2005, my wife give me a traditional recipe of CASSAVA Flour.
This recipe is not dangerous and no side effect at all. Most important is no chemical ingredient in it.
This is it:
1. A glass of water (not hot, not cold)
2. 2 Spoons of Cassava Flour (Tapioka)
3. 1 or 2 spoons of Brown Sugar
4. A little salt
That's it, don't mix it with other material, cause other material can make your stomach iritation

only take this when my UC if flare.
Usualy after 2 days my dhiarea and blooding are stop. And everything back to normal. Right now I can eat anything in the world.
Dignosed March 2006.
Daily Prednisolone 5mg*3 ; Imuran 50mg *3 ; Salofalk 500mg *4 .

Everyone has their own take on these kinds of things...some people swear by eating coconut macaroons putting them and keeping them in remission...maybe for some it works, maybe it's coincidence...the point really is feeling better as my GI says "if banging your head agains a wall 3 times works then do it".

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

It's considered a "thickener" for food...so I would say it would work the same as a fibre supplement.
