hi all hope everyone is doing well sorry i havent been on in a very long time 07 has been a really rough year.but i have some questions if anyone can help me. i stopped smoking two days ago i'm sick of smoking so i know a flare is not to far behind. i had a colonoscopy in aug. my colon looked good so the doc didnt put me on any meds.,but from where i smoked i stayed in remission. i want to try to control this before it starts to flare so i want to try using natural ways to stay in remission. i take a one a day women's multivitamin for starters,now my question is can i take aloe vera juice and the fish oil tablets together.and if yes how many of you does this ? and how much do you take of each one, a day? and i want to start eating yogurt which i hate but hey i guess thats better then flaring so i can deal with that.


 diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in april of 03, waiting to see a gi.

was taking effexor xr for anxiety and panic attacks,switched to zoloft two days ago 50mg.

my myspace  is www.myspace.com/95749798 if anyone would like to chat sometime with the same conditions as me :)

why aren't you taking any meds?

Yogurt won't stop or prevent a flare....

I don't think fish oil is what it claims to be...

Try to eat a well-balanced diet...

Congratulations on quitting smoking!!!!

*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... increased enemas to nightly
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
