Need Alternative to Gastro Med
I've been on Colazol for inflamed proctitis and would love to move to something for maintenance medicine that is not a pharmaceutical. Does anyone have suggestions on where to search??

Colazol capsules? Seems like a long way to go to get to the bottom. Does the Colazol work? I would add a nice amount of probiotics and see if you can wean off the Colazol.
Some people reccommend omega 3 fish oils for inflammation, but i dont know personally.

fish oils do have an anti-inflammatory action but for inflammation accosiated with the digestive tract i would say aloe vera juice is the best bet. not sure what that condition is exactly, but i work in a health food store and we recommend aloe vera juice for an internal inflamation/ infection of the intestinal tract. it has a strong healing, soothing, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory action. it helps with the digestion of food as it contains digestive enzymes. it cleanes the colon, is rich in all vitamins and minerals (esp. beta-carotene but not vit D), contains 17 amino acids. it also eases digestive upsets by creating a protective layer on the colon which allows the smooth passing of food through it. we recently had a weekly training sheet on the stuff. it is truely amazing. look into it more, sounds like it could do the trick for you. :)
