I was diagnosed ulcerative colitis since 2008. I had not tummy issue in my life and on one of my family had ulcerative colitis.
My medicines are given below. Currently probitics VSL#3 is helping me. In my opinion, herbal treatment would be a good choice to try but not withdrawing conventional medicine. I am taking turmeric since I was 4. You can add I turmeric while cooking your food.
Cure is definitely out there!

"... [P]eppermint activates an "anti-pain" channel in the colon. This contributes to relief of pain from inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract."
