I felt a lot better avoiding foods I learned I was senstive to, from going to the Naturopathic doc. But in the end, I decided it wasn't enough improvement (after also never really being in remission, all these years) and am doing great on Remicade.
I have found any diet changes or supplements only worked for a while. Nothing worked for me like Remicade. UC suffering is a horrible way to live, he might be ready for surgery even if it comes as a shock to you.
