- vitamin d3
- enteric coated fish oil
these 2 things seem to be lacking in UC'ers and taking them have had good results with a lot of people.
its never 'everyone' but i personally have had less severe flares when i take those and they seem to go away quicker as well.
also.... tumeric is great anti-inflammatory.
and ask quincy about the enemas.. she is the expert on the whole up ur bum thing and swears by them! LOL :)
