    Hi Gangadhar,

    Thanks for sharing your story, and I’m sure there’s still alot of getting used the diagnosis as it still hasn’t been even a year since that took place. (Things will most certainly get better and more manageable soon, and you’ll even be back to a very normal life someday as well).

    You have several questions concerning diet. For me, I am not vegetarian, maybe the polar opposite some days, but nearly everyday I do eat meat. And much of the meals and recipes I have written about in my cookbooks are not going to work out well for a vegetarian like yourself. That said, I wonder if you eat fish? If so, that is a great source of protein and is often much easier for people to digest. I have started eating fish at least two times per week in the past six months, and I’m really liking it.

    If you don’t eat fish either, I am unfortunately out of suggestions in terms of diet. I just don’t think I’d be in remission and healthy if I wasn’t eating meats and fish. The alternatives such as soy, large amounts of nuts, and grains just work for me and my UC.(The same goes for many other UC’ers as well)/

    But, you also asked about Remicade. A blockbuster biologic (immune suppressant as I’m sure you’ve already learned about.) I’m not big on suppressing/altering the immune system, but it does work for some. Here is a review page that other UC’ers have used to document their specific experiences with Remicade:

    best to you and happy new year,

    I am vegan so maybe I can help a bit. I avoid all gluten. I eat a pretty low fiber diet. You probably want to avoid beans for now. Tofu is great for getting low fiber protein. Pretty much anything but very well cooked vegetables and grains like rice or rice pasta will set me off. I’m still recovering from my first major flare which started a year ago.

    Dude,
    Talk to doctor regarding Prednisone. Sounds like you have it pretty mild so a few pills might nip it in the bud.
    Cheers,

    Hi Gangadhar,

    What is interesting is the rise of IBD in India. Most ‘western industries’ seem to have a large number of IBD cases, I wonder if what we are eating has a large part to do with this. I understand you are a vegan, can I ask what you use to eat before you got UC?

    I can only really suggest then what I think you should do. I could suggest the standard protocol but if you are eating something that is provoking your UC then firstly that needs to be addressed.

    Hi Gangadhar,
    I am Dilp Jogdand fron Pune and from Magarpatta city Trillium biulding but leaving in US last from 6 years. I travelled india for 2 weeks in Aug, 2013 and returned back to US with severe UC, was addmitted in hospital couple of times, did colonoscopy 3 times in 3 months, on Asocol, Steroid, and 6MP tabs…but there was no improvement.
    So i contacted Dr. Verma from Delhi speacialized in UC, Dr. Vasant Lad from Pune, and Dr. Tambe from Pune and finally decided to go with Verma’s medication and i see lot of improvement. Now after 2 months i have only 2 bowl movement and that though solid. Stopped Steroid and 6 MP. US doctor suggested Huimera but due to side effects i declined it. So please go for Aurvedic for permanent cure as there is no permanent cure in Alopathy on UC.
    Here is website of Dr. Verma for medication as well as diet and you can call him directly.

    let me know if you need any further help but please follow Aurvedic….
