Update: It seems it was rather important for me to also supplement with probiotics while on AbsorbPlus. Initial information from the producer of the product was that the main source of carbohydrates (tapioca maltodextrin) did not 'feed' the bad fauna (candida, etc.) in my stomach. The producer updated this information recently to state that tapioca maltodextrin does in fact provide nutrition to both good and bad intestinal fauna. Therefore they recommend taking a full spectrum of probiotics while taking AbsorbPlus. In fact, it's probably best to read Jini's IBD Remission Diet book to get the latest information regarding AbsorbPlus and other solutions that go along with this diet. It's pretty comprehensive and involves much more than just drinking a semi-elemental drink like AbsorbPlus.

I agree Gillian. I'm in my 3rd week on IBD Remission diet (AbsorbPlus, Angstrom Iron, Angstrom Cal/Mag, Mucosaheal, Natren Probiotics, etc.) and my energy is way up, bloating is gone and totally off Crohn's meds. I really think the rest and re-introduction of foods (slowly and with the intent if figuring out what foods are compatible with me) is the best way forward for any IBD sufferer.
For me, Crohn's has become a wake up call that I need to forget everything I knew about food and relearn what it means to eat. I'm now pretty sure I'll be a vegetarian when I come through with the exception (if I can find a clean source) of sushi (has always been a food that I can eat and I don't even feel it in my stomach).
I've been totally frustrated with GI docs that realize that every 2 years (here in the US) insurance will cover a colonoscopy. So like clock work, even if my only complaint is a headache (exaggeration to make a point), my GI will perform a colonoscopy. And guess what he finds? I've got Crohn's (surprise! we knew this years ago). Waste of money, preparation time/stress, and insurance $$'s. Can you believe the last time I was having Crohn's flare-up, he put me back on my Crohn's drugs (steroid and Pentasa) plus 30 days of 2 different anti-biotics. And when I was done he never even suggested probiotics to repair the damage.
So I'm done with the medical establishment for Crohn's. I have found a more holistic doctor with beliefs more in-tuned with my new beliefs and we're off to the races. Between that and the new information learned from Jini's books, I'm in pretty good shape now and headed in the right direction.

Yesterday after being sick most of the day, and unable to eat anything, I decided not to eat food but take the Absorb Plus supplement. I perked up in about an hour, and even felt well enough to go shopping a little... and also baked some cookies for Kairos!

Today I feel much better, and I attribute it to resting my digestive system with Absorb Plus! emoticon

Blessings to all,
Rachel emoticon

It works when I take it. Right now I am planning to replace my noon meal with it. It makes me feel better, and have more energy! After I drink it, I am not hungry at all, and don't want a thing to eat for hours! emoticon

Hi Rachel,
I researched elemental diets on the internet to heal ibd and found the website by a woman who healed herself and has taught the protocol to many. She developed the formula for this so that it has no fillers, etc in it.
So in short, you can buy it off the internet directly. I have to say the customer service is fabulous for this company as well. I am in Canada, and it still came in 2 days, even clearing through Customs. Wow - unheard of.
I'm on day 7 of this and can't believe how much I absorb - nothing comes out lol. The bloating and inflammation I've had for 8 months is gone and my body feels so much better. Basically you give your colon a complete rest and then reintroduce foods after you've healed, in a way that you identify your problem foods.

There's a lot of info on the absorb plus website as well, even if you don't buy the product.

Enjoy!
Gillian

Hi Everyone!
Just joined and wanted to share my recent experiences with using absorb plus, an elemental dietary drink/food that gives my colon a rest. You can check it all out on their website, but I have to say after having c.difficile for 8 months on top of ibd, well, this stuff is amazing!
Have a fabulous day!
