Let’s Try This Again

Kale vs Ninja

Well, kids, my wallowing has come to an abrupt end. I got bored of it and started researching alternatives-both to wallowing and healing.  I ate extremely healthfully before the last surgery, then rode the “low residue diet” train for a while.  Waking up pooping blood, finding the stricture is back, and having awful arthritis motivated me to start eating well again.  I’m trying an anti-inflammatory diet, which is essentially how I ate before surgery.  Basically, you eat whole foods as much as possible: things like fresh veggies and fruits, certain spices, little to no red meat, little to no processed foods like sugar, pasta, alcohol etc.  I’m fully aware that this may not help.  I have tried pretty much any alternative or herbal therapy recommended for IBD/auto-immune diseases, in addition to traditional Western medicine.  I think they work best when smooshed together, but no combination or exclusive use of any of the above has cured me.  I don’t hold out hope that it will, but at this point, I’m willing to try anything that might make me feel even just a little better.   Obviously, there are plenty of people who eat complete crap and have no health problems (yet), but it makes sense to me that the fresher the food, the more nutrient-packed, the better it is for you, so at this point I say, why not? I love fresh fruits and veggies-I grew up eating it, which again, makes me think these efforts may be terribly futile, but, what have I got to lose?

I’ll let you know if I see any improvements and will share any recipes I deem yummy.

First concoction: Kale Smoothie with fresh strawberries, ginger root, lemon juice, orange juice, and parsley.  It’s surprisingly good.
