New guy here. Diagnosed with UC at 19, now 22. I was doing student teaching for the Philly Public School system (yay...) and caught a terrible case of tonsilitis and a stomach virus to boot. They put me on antibiotics, and of course, my colitis started to flare up; a minor flare up, but still a hassle. That was the end of march. It is now early/mid may. I spoke with the doc, who told me as long as quality of life isn't terrible (it's not awful like it has been in the past) to just keep with the Asacol and see what happens.
Since I've gotten no better, and in fact slightly worse, I started researching diet plans, and found one that included drinking raw cabbage juice, three times daily. While they have research to back it up (one Doctor Garnett Cheney's research for a respectable university), the website is one of those wacky snake oil type sites, so I don't know whether or not they can be trustworthy.
Any thoughts on whether or not this will do anything beneficial?
