I have been suffering for over 10 years now. I agree with trying home remedies over medication, although I haven't found one that works. Don't take Prednisone. This steroid is okay short term, but it has severe side effects if taken long term. My hair fell out. I bruise very easily. A small scratch turns into a horrible scar. You gain lots of weight and it effects your nervous system. Then sadly as soon as you stop taking it. The bleeding comes back. The Meds don't work. I was on a ton of different medications and none worked. I will say that watching what you eat does help.

1) Try psyllium (ingredient in Metamucil and similar generics - check labels). I have used it for 10 years and it knocks my symptoms/pain down by 50%.

2) Try melatonin (!) - This one is hardly ever suggested but there are a few papers on Pubmed indicating why it might work.

In the three months I have been taking it (after 12 years with UC), it has knocked my symptoms/pain down by 90%.

That came as a shock because there is almost no public (or medical!) awareness of why it might help (due to increased bicarbonate production in mid-digestion).

Both ideas have almost no side effects and are extremely cheap (in comparison to Asacol/mesalamine - which only ever knocked down my symptoms/pain by 30% by itself...)

Good luck.

read a book called 'BREAKING THE VICIOUS CYCLE' intestinal health through diet by elaine gottschall. its the specific carbohydrate diet (SCD). The Specific Carbohydrate Diet is a group of foods which are grain-free, sugar-free, starch-free, and unprocessed. While removing many foods that are toxic and digestively harmful the diet remains natural, extremely nourishing and representative of what our ancestors ate. Any food that is not properly digested causes bacterial and yeast overgrowth when undigested carbohydrates are fed on by bacteria and yeast in the intestinal tract. This starts a chain reaction of excess toxins and acids which cause irritation of the small intestine cells damaging them and causing food absorption issues which only helps to continue the cycle.The diet is an all natural way to break this cycle of bacteria and yeast overgrowth by eliminating the food sources they feed on. By working to restore gut flora to normal levels the intestinal tract is allowed to start repairing any damage by itself. no drugs, surgery nothing just diet. you will notice a change in one week after the into. diet. it will change your life :) go organic and pura vida :)
