Hi Adam. We met in San Francisco a few years ago for lunch. Hope all is well. Below is an update that I’m happy to share.
I tried organic Apple Cider and changed my diet dramatically (Candida Diet) for about 1.5 months. I took myself off of meds (Mesalazine) and so far so good. Then stopped the Apple Cider only because of the taste and went a different direction.
I am in my 3rd week using Diatomaceous Earth (Food Grade). Again, so far so good.
Not completely regular, but I know that my gut is better. Bleeding has stopped almost completely, and I’m down to a more normal 3 BM’s per day (as opposed to 8-10). It’s possible that I’m just in remission but it can’t be a coincidence. Please share with others. This is working for me but it might not work for everyone. My condition is/was not as bad as what others have experienced. But I was hit hard at the onset.
The scare came when I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes and gout. I changed my diet (and drinking habits) and decided to keep going. I thought it couldn’t be this simple. But maybe it is. I hope this is helpful to others. Google Diatomaceous Earth. Organic Apple Cider might do the trick as well. The meds work, but are expensive and I wanted out.
