There is a lot of unverified treatments and diets on the market that claim to cure everything from UC to cancer. Just because someone writes a book or claims a herb or supplement will cure or stave off a disease does not make the author a credible source of information. Rigorous testing will prove or disprove a claim. Most of these authors do not have the testing to back up their claims. However, some UCers have had good results with following particular diet protocols. Get the book(s) from you local libarary and then try their hypothesis out. It will save you from making an investment on something that may or may not work.
