It sounds to me like you aren't on any of the prescript
ion meds commonly used to treat UC. Are you? If so, please let us know what you're using. I agree with Butterfly Kisses that the liquid diet + laxitives just completely empties you out.
As for natural things, I use probiotics, which I think help, but I know wouldn't keep my UC under control by themselves. Just about
everyone on here takes a probiotic. There are also things like fish oil, glutamine, aloe juice, and some others I'm forgetting that others on here use.
However, do know that the only true cure for UC is surgical removal of the colon. The prescript
ion meds can only keep it under control, but they don't cure it (in terms of being able to quit the meds and not have it come back).
