Ulcerative colitis

Hi everyone ! I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis two years ago . I have inflammation in my small intestine 10 cm at the end of intestine. I had condtipation then diarrhea, bleeding and loose stools. I was put on Salofalk 1000 mg. Took them for two months felt better stopped them . Stopped them because I was passing stools fully a twice a day and had no bloating.
However, my hair was falling out and had gained weight. I am back to having flare ups .
I am looking into natural products to heal like slippery elm, olive oil, probiotics. Any smoothies or dietary products to help please.
Anything anyone can suggest to get

  1. Sea moss has helped me tremendously. It comes in a jar and is a gel. I throw it in all my smoothies. You don't taste it. I also take CBD oil to help with sleep and inflammation. I take L-glutamine which has been super helpful along with beef liver and beef intestines. -Elizabeth (team member)

    1. That's one of the hardest things with this disease, what works for you may not work for me and vice versa. In fact what works for me today might not work for me tomorrow! Best wishes

    2. Same happens with me. Usually just makes me worse. -Elizabeth (team member)

  2. Thank you ! Are you still taking your meds though or have you stopped them ?

    1. No I am still taking my meds and then I do what I can with foods and supplementation to help as well. -Elizabeth (team member)

  3. Thank you everyone for your support. I do have an appointment on Oct 4th with doctor. When I saw him last time after colonoscopy, my bleeding was stopped. He suggested me add more fibers in my diet. Even though, I was not constipated that time, still my bleeding came back after two months, and this time it is much more than last time.

    1. My appointment was ok. Doctor prescribed me Pentasa suppository. My bleeding stopped, I will see Doctor again next month. I am sure, do we need to be all the time on medicine or can stop. I will ask my doctor.

    2. So glad your bleeding stopped. I hope you continue to improve. Hugs, Elizabeth (team member)

  4. Thank you. Sure, I will share after my appointment
