Hi there Community. My son who is 25 has been diagnosed just last summer as having Behcets .Having read about a successful non medical small trial (of 3 people) we are now in the process of trialling for ourselves : Omega 3 fatty acid via linseed/flaxseed oil ( as we are vegetarian we dont do fish oil) and hemp oil ( the food grade not the getting high stuff!) for its gammalinoleic acid ( powerful antiinflammatory with some proven medical track record). Omega 3 are reckoned to be routinely deficient in modern diet and being indicated for lots of conditions so we decided it was good to give a go. Has anyone on here tried these oils to help with their Behcets? Since taking the oils for a few weeks my son had come off his colchicine and not gone into a flare so we are cautiously wondering if this is in fact truly doing something! It could be coincidence but he had been in a low grade flare for months before while on the Colchicine so certainly worth monitoring. There are no bad side effects and many benefits to many areas of the body and brain/nervous system etc to these two oils so I would be really happy to share experiences with other folk who have done this or with anyone else who wanted to join us in our little one man experimental trial.
