My proctitis got very serious before. passed gas every minutes, went to bathroom million times a day. Horrible quality of life!
Now, I feel I am healed, at least in remission. I will like share my experience with you. 
I was eating spicy food crazy, red chili with every meal. Now,I totally quit spicy food.
I was eating rice two meals a day. I found my ancestors only ate wheat products, my genes and digestive system may be better adapted to wheat products. So I quit rice, and only eat bread and oatmeal. I feel much better after following wheat or wheatmeal diet. 
Every morning, I take Culturell with one full glass water two hours before breakfast.
And I took Chinese medicine. 
I also try to excercise the abdomen and buttock muscles.
I know healing my gut is not a overnight thing, is a process, I had to be patient, and observe the slight changes.
about two months ago. I don't see any blood or mucus anymore, my wife stopped complain my gas problem.
Everyone has different UC,  this may only apply to my case, I am not a doctor. You have to see your own doctor.

36 yrs male. From Arizona
Took a lot of antibiotics for my sinus infection caused by allergy, Augmentin and triple antibiotics regimen. Now qualilfy to join UC team.
Dx in 2007. Proctitis only( party of Ulcerative Colitis). Mild Hemorrhoid. Fish oil 2 capules twice a day, helps. Alo Vera sometimes helps. Propolis helped quit bit, but had to stop due to allergy issue.

Thats great that you are in remission! I have found that foods high in magnesium
put me in remission too. Wheat products are high in magnesium. Some other foods that are high in magnesium are grains, nuts, seeds, beans, spinach.

     Seems like a lot of us have a common thread here and that is abundant use of antibiotics which could have contributed to our getting UC.  I know when I was a young girl my family doctor prescribed erythromycin for EVERYTHING and like a good listening patient ...I took it.  Boy, if I knew then what I know now.

Update 11/03/08...finally in remission!!  Hope I don't jinx myself.  Off the prednisone since 11/01/ see if I can stay off for longer than two weeks.  Other meds: 6MP (75 mgm), colazal (6 per day), Benicar and Toprol (high blood pressure meds), Probiotic (2 per day), fish oil capsule and multi-vitamin and calcium with vitamin D.

Hi Cfromutah,

Very interesting. I have found that eating spinach and seaweed, which are high in magnesium, really helps.
