Re: ulcerative colitis
Its worth trying a few things to see what works for you.
Some people swear by the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) - which restricts the use of complex carbohydrates and eliminates refined sugar, gluten and starch from the diet. This stops the overproduction of nasty bacteria and yeast in the gut which could be the cause of some peoples UC.
For some simply the addition of acidophilus to the diet can work wonders for the symptoms. Acidophilus is the good gut bacteria - found in yoghurt, but you can also get capsules. The good bacteria will fight for space with the bad bacteria - and eliminate them - restoring the gut back to health.
I have also recently come across the use of Colostrum to help treat UC. Colostrum is the early milk produced by animals (late pregnancy and within48hours of giving birth) that is full of antibodies and good stuff. Some UC sufferers believe that a supplement of this can prevent your body attacking itself - and restore the gut to health.
