I had chronic bouts for 10 years, from my early twenties to early thirties.
Was on a bland diet for most of this time with drug treatment, including
salazopyrin, steroids, etc. during flare-ups. Then a new consultant
recommended very high fibre diet, and to buy extra bran and sprinkle that on
my food as well, and to remain on salazopyrin constantly for several years
(3 if I recall correctly). He got it right first time for me; I was
symptom-free within weeks and no sign of disease for what is now 25 years. I
maintain a fairly healthy Diet but can eat and drink anything. Some may call
it remission, but as far as I'm concerned I'm cured. Seems there may be no
sure-fire cure, but, if you keep trying, something may work for you.


Hi Susan,
I've taken no maintenance meds after completing the several years on
salazopyrin. I keep to a healthy, high-fibre diet, but that is a lifestyle
choice for general health. I realise that whether we term it a cure or
remission can be a fine point of semantics, but being recommended a
treatment which relieved the symptoms within a few weeks, with no return of
the slightest sign or symptom in twenty-five years, is a cure in my book.
