Traditional Asian beliefs about
ingesting cold food and drinks probably date back to when they had to be boiled to kill germs. Now it's mostly superstition. My Chinese wife and I argue about
it all the time. She and her parents won't let our 1-year-old daughter drink even room-temperature milk. The belief that being cold or wet can make you sick is also a debunked myth.
Anyway, I digress. Temperature is unlikely to affect your colitis, and I've never heard of such a thing. If you're looking for correlations one way or another, I always feel hot and want to cool off. My last flare was in South Florida where it's hot and muggy year-round, and we keep the A/C around 80.
