How long have you had UC? I am looking into natural cures, I met a lady that is off of all medications and is on probiotics and natural supplements... she is better than ever and has been for almost 3 years... she is 43 and has been dealing with UC since she was 16... never went the surgery route. Will be going to that Dr. next week. My concern of the remicade is what the long term effects are.... does anyone really know. What caused you to take the Remicade?
