Wow, sorry to hear about your struggles at such a strong age. My wife suffers from UC and keeps it under control pretty good most of the time. She uses a lot of natural supplements to do so, in the beinging it took her 3 months to get it in remission. I was telling about your post (UC stuff) and this is the stuff that she felt helped her the most. Again, it took 3 months of daily use to see results.
Turmeric 500 mg x4 daily
Boswellia 200/400 mg daily
fish oil 9,000 mg daily
O-mega's 1,800 mg daily
She also takes probiotics,vit. D3, multi vit, and I'm sure a few more because it's like 11 pills a day.
Though this is a gerd forum, when I saw your UC problems I thought I could help. Remember every day for 3 months before she saw results but she swears by it and watches her diet as well.
Best of luck
