I was recently diagnosed with UC.I'm 21 yrs old. I read Dr.Gerard Mullen book "Inside tract" and in track 3 he has specified Kombu strips and burdock root for colitis. Has anyone taken those and is it safe for someone with severe colitis?

I've never heard of Kombu strips. I've tried burdock root though and can't say I really noticed a difference with it, though to be honest was never religious about taking it. It is supposed to be a potent blood purifier and good for a variety of things though, worth a shot!

Yes. Kombu strip is same as Kombu seaweed. I read in the book that you boil that and take just the extract.

How often do you take kombu seaweed? Is it frequent or once in a while? Have you heard of any colitis related advantages?

No, I have not heard it in connection with UC. I use it to make mineral water (trace minerals). I boil it and then use the water in which it was boiled. I discard seaweed after boiling.

Do you mind sharing your information on use of this seaweed in UC?

Ive used kombu in my broths but for iodine and flavor purposes. I doubt it helps my uc since my uc isnt affected by food.
