I recently started a 30 day trial of LFRV and so far so good, but I am new to this (vegan & raw) so it would be good to 'meet' some like-minded people and perhaps learn some more about this lifestyle.

Yes, I'll keep blogging about my healing progress. Soon I'll be smoke free again because I really don't like it. I do yoga every day and want to breathe freely. Hope you'll be in remission in no time. Some people with UC heal within 3 months. Maybe you're one of them :) Best wishes!
Hello Lois, well I was so happy I didn't smoke anymore that I thought I'd never wouldn't give it a try as a remedy for UC. During the past 3 years, after having setbacks despite staying on track diet wise and also working on removal of amalgam dental fillings, I decided to look up what people experience with cigs and UC. There were such positive reports about it that it made me think about that. Then I realized that the 2 times I stopped for 5 years, I got UC and when I started smoking again, that I got in remission every time. Have to look it up to be exact, but I read somewhere that the smoking influences the mucous forming process in the digestive tract. Anyway, the smoking as a remedy is only for ex-smokers and some doctors prescribe it. But it stays an unhealthy thing to do! In my case it had a positive effect, but I'm not healed by it (yet?), so it may be temporarily and in vain. There is improvement though.
I want the diet to heal me, but no matter what I try I can't eat more than some bananas (first 10-12, but now sometimes up to 20 -but not every day-), warmed up veg juice and a veg soup for dinner. There were times I could be 100% raw with juices and bananas, but sometimes I couldn't digest any fruit at all without getting more and more symptoms even after a month. Guess the amalgam ruins the healing process (still few fillings have to be removed).
The cigs don't taste good at all, but my BM's got more formed since I started, so when the bowel tissue heals more and the bowel allows more food, then I hope to be able to vary my food within 811 and this will keep me in remission I hope - so I can give up the cigs. I believe I can, because it's not the same enjoyment as it was with coffee, wine or after a normal cooked dinner.
I don't know how long you're lfrv, I know detox can give unexpected setbacks even after you're doing well on 811. Here's a great report by Andrew Perlot about it:
This was no option for me, I'm glad I'm 48,5 kilo now after being unable to gain weight a long time before, I was mostly 44 kilo the last few years. I did a juice fast once for 18 days, that helped the bowel tissue for a while, but I'm not ready to do it again soon.
So I'm not enthusiastic about the smoking, if you can avoid it, please do.
What I also discovered, is that when you're sensitive to salicylic acid, you might be allergic to celery juice too. I made bananasmoothies with celery juice a lot in the past years, so I cut them out to see if that helps. I believe it does also. So try everything you can to avoid that last desperate step to the cig, I'd say.
Get well soon! Happy fruity healing :) So many people succeeded already! And I must say, that this lifestyle (without smoking) already took away a lot of accompanying symptoms of UC. So maybe I'm too impatient and you shouldn't listen to me ;)
Yeah the west coast is great, if it didn't rain so much I wouldn't mind living there. I went through Arthurs Pass to Hokitika, up to Westport, then back through Lewis pass. Stewart Island sounds like a pretty cool place, hopefully I'll get down there at some point..
I've been eating 80/10/10 for about a year now, but not 100% the whole time. Yeah, I definitely feel it suits me, it really feels right intuitively, and I love the simplicity of it. My health wasn't exactly too bad before anyway, but I've noticed improvements for sure, i have a lot more energy and feel happier in general and a lot of smaller benefits like better skin, no bad B.O. , better sense of smell and so on...
I hope it goes well for you, it might be hard to start with, as eating habits tend to be pretty hard to change, but its well worth it!
Hi, its good being back, always nice to see family and friends, i'm missing all the cheap tropical fruit though, haha. Ah yeah, Gore bay is a nice place. I just went over to the west coast for the weekend. So are you just eating LFRV for 30 days, or are you thinking of continuing it?
