Welcome to HealingWell!
Be very weary of the aloe products (or any product) that advertises to cure UC. The ONLY cure is surgery.
You should not have to settle with what you are experiencing. If Asacol isn't working for you, there are other meds to try. Sometimes it takes a few tries to find the right meds for your body.
Have you tried probiotics or fiber?
How many BMs per day? What is the consistency?
There have been members here that have had luck drinking lily of the valley whole leaf aloe vera juice. This disease is very individual and there isn't one thing that works for everyone. Others have had luck with the SCD diet. Many have had luck with rectal meds.
I suggest reading through lots of old posts for more information. There are a couple of options for searching on this site. There is a google search and another search box above in a blue "ribbon" that crosses the page.
In another thread to a newbie, I recommended a book by Jill Sklar. (The First Year: Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis) I'd suggest you look into it as well. It's one book I refer to often - great basic information on the IBDs.
Keep looking through posts and continuing to ask questions. Knowledge is power!
