Was on Asacol for two and a half years.Went off of that and started
probiotics,fish oil,B-complex, vitamins, digestive enzymes and
managed to stay in remission,some small flares,up until now.
Started having different symptoms than before--severe gas,bloating,
reflux and heartburn worse than ever before.Had colonoscopy and EGD
Biopsies and blood work determined celiac disease.I am now on Colozal

Me. Hi, you already heard from me! (Can you add a subject line to the post?)
Amy's has good stuff. Several brands of cookies were good, especially the shortbread kind.
And Ruffles potato chips, yumm.
I had immediate results. Keep in touch!!
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering.
Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares. 
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed gluten, other intolerances; started diet without gluten, soy, dairy, tomato etc. Replete probiotic first, now Forte pills. 
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!? Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.
