My Recommendations For Ulcerative Colitis

Firstly, drink plenty of water about 10 minutes before your meal, this should help your intestines work optimally as well as keep you hydrated which is very important for a time like this when a lot of water could be getting lost.

The most bioavailable phytonutrients are through fresh juices because cell walls and fiber are taken away when juiced, so all that roughage doesn’t get in the way of the nutrients, making the nutrients more bioavailable.  In general, fruit is low in fiber and high in nutrients and available energy.  I am not a doctor, but I would recommend a pretty strict regime until you are healed- something like a 32 ounce juice for breakfast, a pulverized smoothie for lunch, or more giant juice, even blending fresh juice with some fruit like banana would be yummy, and a big monomeal of fruit for dinner, or another big smoothie.

If you are going to opt for cooked food and your regular vegan delicacies, I at least think you should consider supplementing daily with something high in enzymes like bee pollen.  I have heard that peoples UC has been healed just from taking a tablespoon of bee pollen a day, whether blended in smoothie or sprinkled on cereal, I don’t think it matters, the alive active enzymes will really take a burden off of your body- which is why I think raw food with minimal ruffage and fiber is best.
Lastly- boiled and steamed roots should be ok.  I do not recommend baking, for higher temperatures create acrylamide in potatoes, but boiling (212 degrees F) and a little big over with steaming is ok, and there are actually a few benefits to steaming potatoes and root veggies like beets and carrots, like it ruptures the cell walls (thus destroying the fiber) making it easier to digest.
I REALLY hope this helps!! Please keep in touch with me!  You can definitely heal yourself!  All I eat is exactly what I recommended you!! (unless I’m practicing for a demo to serve to the Mcdonalds heads :-/ 😉 )  I eat juices and smoothies and fruit all day and (well i have a giant salad at night) but totally with some steamed sweet potato!  Yum yum!

 

Much love!!  Good luck! YOU CAN DO IT!!

 

Don’t give up, never give up, we won’t stop, give it all we’ve got!
You’re an inspiration to us all, xoxoxoxxxx
