You may want to try some of the natural stuff. I had some success with Aloe Juice, and Fish Oil pills. Also, to help with the inflammation I would take advil as well (though I'm sure that probably wasn't wise). The goal is to get the inflammation down, so stay away from foods and behaviors that cause internal inflammation.
Here is some info on alternative meds, and you may get some info from the article and/or the video to understand how to calm the inflammation in your bowel.
