Don't listen to every story below. I've tried many remedies including Aloe Vera, Juicing, etc...complete with lifestyle changes and all; and my UC still comes back and causes major problems. ALWAYS listen to your doctor and don't go off your medication if you're still in a flare up (unless of course if you're having an extreme allergic reaction). The problem with these remedies is that everyone with UC is so different in how they react to certain foods and medications. Just be patient and know that it might take a long time for you to figure out what works for you. And remember, everyone is out to make money, including the people with the so-called 'natural' remedies and books that 'teach' you how to heal. If there was a one-stop cure for this besides the surgery, trust me, you'd find out about it.

Pay attention to what you eat is what I recommend. You'll know what helps trigger attacks for sure! Keep a journal if it helps - sure wish I'd take my own advice...Had lamb last night and paying for it today! Take you meds as noted above.

You may find comfort in doctors, but the short term bandaid will eventually strip your already fragile body. You are what you eat. And pharmaceutical drugs all have side effects - many that we will not know about for years to come. I would always do my research and try to eat my way back to health before trusting a doctor who is trained by the many pharm reps that he sees each day. They also get paid!!
I too al ost died several times - if I had continued to listen to my many doctors, I would be dead.

I have seen first hand that Imuran caused severe problem to someone’s pancreas. These pharmaceutical drugs only mask the symptoms, can have potentially severe side effects, and most patients will still have future flare-ups. The medical doctors have no magical pill for this illness. All they can do is to use the few medications by trial and error and hope to find one that can suppress the symptoms with the least side effects. Your symptoms will return, together with the side effects.

The holistic and diet approach may not be the magic cure for all, but it appears to work better for many than the pharmaceutical pills.

lol Yeah, listen to your doctor. That isn't always the best advice. When I had my worst flare-up of UC at age 21, the doctor I had at the time told me that by the time I reach 40 years old, I would either be dead or be wearing a colostomy bag. He also pumped me up with so many different steroids that I developed a condition called pericarditis and nearly died. After I finally started recovering from that, I took matters into my own hands and started changing my diet, eliminating sugar and yeast, and things improved greatly. That was 6 years ago and I haven't had a flare-up since. So yeah... I stopped listening to my doctor a long time ago.

The guy who posted 'listen to your Dr' sounds like he may be a Dr!

I will go the natural way, common sense way over most meds today.

So much info online about natural cures, most are very inexpensive.

Don't listen to this person. I have colitis. I have asthma and allergies. All inflammatory diseases. You have to treat the inflammation for the rest of your life. Once I go off the diet even for a few days, symptoms slowly start coming back. Docs don't tell you that all of the colitis meds are cancer causing. Read up. ON the anti-inflammatory diet I went asthma, allergy and colitis free for 8 YEARS! Went on a trip to SF and ate everything in sight. Well, all of my symptoms for everything came back. 7 weeks later, still fixing it.
