I personally have been doing a homemade lecithin enema for about a week so far.
Other things I started recently include:
-Taking L-Glutamine 1 tsp at a time 3 times daily on an empty stomach
-Taking VSL3 DS probiotics, 2 packets mixed in water in the morning, and 2 at night, on an empty stomach.
-Taking vitamins, an antioxidant, and for the next couple weeks an immune system booster herb
I have gone the traditional route and only had mild success. I've always had some sense of urgency since I was diagnosed with UC originally. I've done mesalamine pills, enemas, 6mp, entocort... and various drugs to try to help things like gut cramping. Prednisone works decently, but gives me mood swings and isn't a long term solution.
ANYWAYS... I am taking as much time as I need to rest and let my body heal. I've never taken quite the time that I am now, and am feeling better... but it is a slow process. From what I've read about the PC capsule OR lecithin enemas is that it is going to take a little while. I'll come on this forum and post more once it's been a month or so, and I know if I'm seeing results or not.
