This is my first time posting on a forum so please forgive my ineptitude. I just wanted
to share something that might help others with ulcerative colitis.
I have had uc for about 16 years, early on I had a lot of remissions (all on its own) later it became
pretty much constant with varying degrees of severity. I couldnt take mesalamine of any kind although
I tried repeatedly, and steroids were even worse. Immune suppressors I disregarded out of hand.
I got worse and worse with each colonoscopy, from mild colitis to marked, 20+ bowel movements per day, pyoderma gangrenosum etc... finally I came across a study about Boswellia which is a tree sap and I started taking a standardized tablet of that along with a standardized Turmeric capsule. I take 8000mg a day of the Turmeric and 4000mg a day of the boswellia. My colitis was gone in two weeks, not "knocked back" a little but gone completely with zero side effects. Oh the Bowellia and Turmeric should be taken with Bromelain, an enzyme that helps in the bioavailability. Best of luck to all, this has been a miracle for me.
