The stupidest thing I did was eat clay because it was being heavily promoted by someone one this board.
The thing that did work for me was the spinach sunflower seed diet. I kid you not, I've been off the lialda for a year now. I may have only a VERY mild case of UC (dx in 2009) but it really worked for me.
I haven't been on this site, simply because I have nothing else to report.
I hope everyone can get the treatment that works for them!
