GAPS diet

Hello! I'm wondering if anyone here has tried the GAPS diet. (I actually have proctitis but I couldn't find a forum for this so I signed up here since I have found that many sufferers of Crohn's have successfully healed themselves this way). I started this diet a few days ago with Stage 1 of the Introduction diet but started milk kefir about three weeks ago. Pretty much all my symptoms subsided a few days after the kefir but now I am getting a little bit of blood in my stool after starting the diet. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
Thank you!

Is unusual, however kefir is healthy with belions of friendly bacteria with different strains..Are you experiencing stomach pains? was the blood looks more like a fresh blood or just dark in color..How much kefir do you consume in a day? I will suggest if you can go slow and see if it gonna subsides.. What kind of milk used to prepare the kefir.. Goat milk? or cow milk, organic or just regular.. Kefir is strong,in my opinion go slow like 3 spoons in the morning and 3 at night and work yourself up..
 
The GAPS Diet focuses on removing foods that are difficult to digest and damaging to gut flora and replacing them with nutrient-dense foods to give the intestinal. I think so is a good option
