Has she ever taken probiotics? Does she have a good doctor? Maybe some rectal medication, I use canasa suppositories twice a day and they work well for me along with asacol. Canasa is a prescription you would have to get the doc to prescribe. My doctor told me to eat a high fiber diet and drink LOTS of water. Not everyone with UC can tolerate a high fiber diet. Something a little strange I read on the website was interesting so I am going to try it. One guy said he was "healed" (put in remission) by eating a can of spinach everyday. Hey, It doesn't hurt to try, spinach is very good for you. Good luck to you and your wife, you will find lots of help on this website,I know it has helped me! Forvia is a supplement (multiviatamin) I heard about specifically designed for people with UC. You can google it and buy it on-line. I know you can't do everything you hear but maybe some things will help or be worth a try.
Take Care, Bellski
