Here's an interesting youtube link (not a product pitch) to a post by someone who claims to be free from meds and UC symptoms by juicing vegetables.
Juicing vegetables sounds like a great idea and even if it doesn't end up working as effectively as it has for the person who posted, there should be obvious nutritional benefits and no harm in supplementing your diet with fresh vegetable juice.  Enjoy!
Rio, 31 yr old male - diagnosed with UC in 07/2006.
Alternative therapies for several months (SCD, ayurvedic treatment, VSL#3): didn't work and became anaemic. Canasa, 2 daily: remission for a month then flared-up.
07/07-11/07: 4800mg Asacol (6 x 400mg, twice a day) & Aloe Elite.
Completed first (6 week) tapered course of Pred in 10/07, flaring up since coming off it.
11/07: Switched from Asacol to 12 x 750mg Colazal (3 weeks on it and symptoms got worse)
12/07: Asacol 4800 mg, Started Azathioprene 175mg, Prednisone taper from 60mg - Now on alternate days of 20mg and 10mg; 2/08: added 1 Pentasa x 1mg.

I watched this video about a month ago and have been juicing since...initially I had amazing blood and formed stools. I even went off of asacol (I normally take 12 asacol and 75mg of 6mp per day) - I am flaring up a bit again now though. But i can vouch for juicing being a help for UC patients.

I've found I haven't had trouble with V8 and other 'processed' veggies. It's the raw stuff that causes the problems. For me CORN in any format is death. Corn is a 4 letter word in my house. ;)
