I hope this is allowable, I just wanted to share this with everyone.  There is a company "The Teaching Company" that sells educational DVDs and audio CDs.  I went through a catalogue lately and bought one called "The Human Body: How we fail, how we heal" by a Professor Anthony A Goodman.
It has been pretty educational and I am probably 1/4 through it and he already has mentioned ulcerative colitis.  He's going into the inflammatory response and the immune response.  It's not a video about UC but about the body and its defenses.
I am not going to post a link as I don't know if that is ok unless the Mods tell me I can.  I just wanted to share that with some of you who may have an interest in learning more, and like me, are at wits end with google-therapy.

Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis 6/2006 at age 26 after sudden E.R. visit
~Pancolitis (Mild to Moderate)
 ~I had Mono in 2000
On Colazal 3x3/day; Folic Acid 1mg; Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc combo
In remission about 2-3 months after E.R. but not back to normal!
~Interested in finding a cure/making sense out of U.C. and philosophical and psychological aspects of UC and "Stress" and Personal Development issues with Chronic Illnesses.
