I've just come back from a herbal centre and asked if they could give me something for my active Ulcerative Colitis.

The lady behind the counter mixed-up a cocktail and said this should help, so I bought it.

It basically consists of :

80ml Cramp Bark
80ml Wild Yam
40ml Licorice

She also gave me a box of Slippery Elm powder.

Has anyone tried these ingredients and what about the side effects - Wild Yam sounds a bit scary?

I know the slippery elm is in Mucosaheal and I think the licorice is too....they are both anti-inflammatories. I think Wild Yam is used to stabilize hormones in women. they make a cream that you rub on your skin to increase progesterone production. Don't know anything about cramp bark. I wouldn;t really worry aobut it...my GI said that it wouldn't hurt, and it may not help, but it would not hurt you. 80 ml is relative depending on what concentrtion the wild yam is in. I hope it works for you.

Three herbal treatments I have used in the past that have kept me in remission for long periods of time were Isotonix OPC-3, Isotonix Digestive Enzyme w/Probiotics, and Ultimate Aloe Juice.

Each one has a very specific job, I was in remission for 6 years however I went into a very stressful time and got sick going on an antibiotic in which drew my flare. Once I started on the steroids I had to stop my herbal treatments until i got everything back under control.
