Various holistic options have been tried here over the years and the results have been plainly awful. At most they are selling you a placebo-effect, as nothing they "treat" you with has any scientific-basis for working, and doing what they claim it will. My advice would be run, don't walk away from this Holistic doctor as he/she will only make your wallet lighter.
Please continue taking your mesalamines no matter what, do not believe this holistic approach will replace those.
There are some here who do use alternatives as part of their treatment, from diets like SCD or IBD-AID, to alternatives like probiotics or tumeric and had some success from them (see our various signatures for ideas). That's free advice, we won't charge you for ;-)
