I consider experience the best reference.For the first diet, use broccoli,onion,cauliflower,spinach,carrots,cucumber,salt(sea salt is best),olive oil,(first cold pressed is best)sold in dark brown bottles or gallon cans for a no light atmosphere,eggs,cold water fish,chicken breast,soy milk should be OK,pearl barley,brown rice or any other food on the diet attachment.Be sure to remove the skin from the carrots and cucumber.the skin has a concentrated fiber that can be an irritant on the colon wall.Eat vegetables at every meal.If you can,yogurt(organic with added active cultures).
This is a basic diet and you should see a positive result with in a week.After the colon heals,you can try other foods one at a time.Don't eat things that disagrees with you or you can add vegetables you favor.Tomatoes are not a vegetable.No other sauces or condiments for now.One wrong food can delay healing.Distilled water is best,reverse osmosis or a very soft water.The less material in water to irritate the colon
the better.Drink plenty of water.
When your colon heals, it will indicate the correct food
by stool form or number of bowel movements.Take the vitamin E,vitamin C, multivitamin & mineral capsules and selenium orally.
Start to remove any other medications slowly.I have never received
any of the burning symptoms in reports I have received.If this is caused by ulcerative colitis, this procedure should help.I can only advise from my experiece and the experience of many others.
The choice on using the procedure or not is yours alone.I have never received any reported bad side effects from the procedure.
Type Vitamin E,also vitamin A , beta carotene and fish oil in the google search window for further information.Which ever choice you make,I never the less wish to thank you for your post.I am sure it will benefit many people. sheldon

Supplements: How Much and What Kind
Supplements and vitamins can be helpful, especially for those who can't or don't eat a well-balanced diet rich in antioxidants. I suggest most people take the following:
Vitamin C: 250-500 mg daily. Take higher dosages if you are under extra stress, living in smoke-filled or polluted environments, or not getting at least five servings of fruits and vegetables as part of your daily diet.
Vitamin E: 400 IUs of mixed natural tocopherols (or at least 80 mg of mixed tocopherols and tocotrienols) daily. Since vitamin E is fat soluble, it must be taken with food to be absorbed. Choose natural forms of vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol with mixed tocopherols, or better yet, mixed tocopherols and tocotrienols) instead of the synthetic form (dl-alpha-tocopherol).
Selenium: 200 micrograms daily. Selenium is a trace mineral with antioxidant and anticancer properties. Selenium and vitamin E facilitate each other's absorption, so take them together. Vitamin C may interfere with the absorption of inorganic forms of selenium (sodium selenite), so take the yeast-bound form instead. Doses of selenium above 400 micrograms a day may not be healthy.
Dear Dr. Mirkin: I’ve heard that cooking destroys nutrients. Would
it be better to eat only raw foods?
Many people believe that fresh fruits and vegetables
always contain more nutrients than cooked ones, but cooked
carrots have higher levels of antioxidants than fresh carrots.
Cooking carrots in the presence of a small amount of oil or butter
increases the amount of two antioxidants called beta carotene and
phenolic acid. Cooking also increases the amount of lycopene you
get from tomatoes. Cooking breaks the plant cells open to
increase the absorption of these antioxidants and other beneficial
plant chemicals. Adding a little oil or butter increases absorption
of fat soluble chemicals.
Some vitamins are affected by cooking, but you'll still get
plenty. The enzymes in food that are destroyed by heat are of no
use to you; your body makes the enzymes you need to digest
your food. Most of the nutrients in food (minerals, proteins, fats,
carbohydrates) are not destroyed by heat, and many common
foods are unpalatable or unsafe if they are not cooked. I
recommend eating the widest possible variety of fruits and
vegetables, raw or cooked, and fresh, frozen, canned or dried.

food allergy or intolerance? It's important to know the difference.
"If you have a food allergy , eating even the smallest amount of that food may trigger a serious reaction," says James Li, M.D., Ph.D., Mayo Clinic allergy specialist, in the December issue of Mayo Clinic Women's HealthSource. "With food intolerance, you may be able to eat small amounts of problem foods without a reaction."
With an allergy, the immune system mistakenly identifies a food as harmful, triggering immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies to fight the substance. Signs and symptoms usually develop within minutes and may include tingling in the mouth, hives, swelling of the lips, face, tongue and throat, wheezing or breathing difficulties, dizziness, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting. In severe cases, the airway can constrict.
Food intolerance, where a symptom is triggered by a food or substance, is much more common than food allergy . Only about 2 percent of adults and 6 percent of children have a food allergy. food intolerance doesn't involve the immune system but can cause some of the same gastrointestinal symptoms as food allergy. For example, lactose intolerance, where people don't have the digestive enzymes to fully digest Sugar in milk products, can cause bloating, cramping or diarrhea.
"It's wise to consult a physician if you have concerns or questions about your reaction to certain foods," says Dr. Li. Allergies can be diagnosed with skin and blood tests. Diagnosing food intolerance is a bigger challenge, requiring a thorough health history. Foods can trigger symptoms for a number of medical conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux and migraine.
