Finally got down to 6.0 and now 5.7. Not sure exactly what is the most critical, but went 90% vegetarian, no beer, almost zero alcohol and taking milk thistle and tart cherry. Drinking tons of water. Also, probiotics. I think that has been a big help since I was on a huge dose of antibiotics right before my major flare up. Also, I drank quite a bit (especially beer) and ate lots of beef, etc before all of this happened in October.
