Hi,

I actually read that whole nuts or pieces are not good for the gut (colitis and chron's) but probably nut flour works on people who are not allergic to nuts!

Eliminate sugar, refined grains (white flour etc.) and all processed foods (yes, ketchup, mayo, etc.) and just focus on eating natural. The long term benefits are obvious. A product called "Primal Defense" also works very well for me.

Refuah Shelemah!

Hi Marcus -

I totally agree with you regarding stress. I developed Ulcerative Colitis at the most stressful point of my life, approximately 6 years ago. Unfortunately, I never went into remission, and after 4 years of constant illness, and numerous hospital stays, I had my colon totally removed. Healthwise, this was the best move I ever made, because I am now a much healthier person. However, I find that when the slightest stress hits, I still suffer from pains and illness. I have learned that stress manifests itself physically, and in a very negative way. I now refuse to "sweat the small stuff". Little things no longer bother me. I have become very easy - going and laid back about most things. I only allow the "big things" to worry me, and when I feel the twinges and aches, I take a day off. My advice to anyone suffering from colitis/crohns - forget the smaller things that drive us nuts. Focus on on the bigger picture - keeping yourself healthy and well!

I'm 25 also expecting my second child B"H this summer. I've had colitis for 11 years. During my first pregnancy my colitis was fine, but this pregnancy has been more complicated. My colitis was getting out of control so my doctor wants me to take 9 asacol pills a day and also prednisone. The lower doses of prednisone that worked for me when I wasn't pregnant were not helping at all so I needed to take 40mg for a few weeks. Now I am on 30mg. The prenisone really worries me even though my doctors keep on telling me that it is pretty safe. I am having a monthly sonogram to make sure the baby is gaining weight and B"H everything is fine. I also saw a few different doctors to get some different medical opinions about how to treat my colitis. My current doctor tells me that after I give birth there will be more options other than prednisone in how to treat the colitis. I may also look at remicade.
I wonder if there is anyone else out there who also needed to use prednisone while they were pregnant?
Wishing everyone a Refuah Sheleimah!

My name is Shmuel Shwartz and I have suffered for over 15 years with ulcerated colitis, followed the diet which helped a bit, but did not cure me. In the last couple of years I was introduced to glyconutrients which consists of eight mono saccharides. These saccharides enables the body to heal itself. After taking it for a number of months my condition improved, and ultimately healed. At my last checkup, the doctor reviewed my colonoscopy and declared me healed!

If you are interested in more information regarding glyconutrients, I can be contacted at #646-296-3651 or samtoby1@earthlink.net.

I just did a quick research on the internet on glyconutrients as I'd never heard about them. This looks like a multi-level marketing system which product may work after guzzling a lot of money. I recently went to a lecture on ibd and the doctors recommend a Mediterranean diet. In fact one can do a search on the internet on the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid and I would put the level of the fruit, vegetables, nuts etc. just above the exercise level but if one bears in mind that the grains may not be gluten containing grains, I would put this layer on top of the fruit, etc.

Also when looking up glyconutrients, I came up with the Primitive Humans diet as opposed to the current diet of the Modern Human in which I found that
the Primitive Human Diet consisted of 99% vegetables, fruits, roots, legumes, nuts and only 1% whole cereal grains and the diet of the Modern Human consists of 18% refined/artificial sugars, sweeteners and 59% refined grains and 23% vegetables, fruits, roots, legumes, nuts.

Just look at how far man has gone to produce foods that are so far from the natural foods which Hashem prepares for us.

Wishing everyone a healthy summer.

Sarah
