I tried juicing my vegetable because I thought it would eliminate the fiber. I did not work. Is a juicer of any use at all? Should I try certain vegetable one at a time? I'm getting weak from no vege in spite of taking good quality vitamins. Also, what about using pgx daily for prebiotic. Thanks

Hi Lizabelle.

I'm not so certain weakness comes from no veges....but just low B vitamins in general. I only eat carrots, some celery and occasionally squash but I supplement (now that I have had some good healing time) with B12, B6, and Biotin and that has lifted my energy level much nicer now. I also keep the VitD3 and Drs Best Elemental Magnesium going along with some external magnesium too.

At this point depending on your healing, probiotic use would only be useful if you had to be on an antibiotic, then I would say sure take a probiotic for a couple weeks after you were done with the antibiotic and get some beneficial bacteria back into your gut. Then after a couple weeks the bacteria that you ingest on a daily basis moving forward from foods and liquids and the air will balance you out as an individual on its own.

The combo I mention above seems to be enough to keep me going. I've looked into the juicing and low fiber fruits and veges and only a little intake at a time is all I can think of. Too much sugar (even in natural form) or fiber upsets the apple cart in the MC world.

Good luck!

I agree with Erica, weakness is moreso from low B vitamins, low Vit D and low Magnesium.

What vitamins are you taking?

What about making smoothies, out of almond milk and peeled apple? Does that seem to be tolerable for us?

Maybe, especially if the apples are cooked (or microwaved), but most of us have to limit our fiber intake significantly until our intestines have done some healing. We're all different though in how much fiber we can tolerate. For most of us, in general, the less fiber we take in, the faster we heal.


It is suspected that some of the hardest material known to science can be found in the skulls of GI specialists who insist that diet has nothing to do with the treatment of microscopic colitis.
