"Treatment for ulcerative colitis varies, but most people are prescribed medications". My friend has Ulcerative Colitis and suffered for years. She went from one drug to another and eventually the doctors wanted to do surgery to remove the diseased part of her colon. She found a natural product, AloeElite and has been on it for years and symptom free for years! "AloeElite naturally controls inflammation and helps to mend the tissue that has been damaged, healing the ulcerations over time". "Some people whose symptoms are triggered by certain foods are able to control the symptoms by avoiding foods that upset their intestines, like highly seasoned foods, raw fruits and vegetables, or milk sugar". Stress can also aggravate the condition and "people with digestive disorders tend to feel the stress right where it hurts them the most- the digestive tract" so it is important to deal with stress in a positive way, deep breathing, meditation and positive affirmations are some examples of stress reduction techniques. The doctors say colitis is an incurable disease, but people can go into remission for years. I hope this information helps you. Good Luck!
