I was recently diagnosed with LYMPHOCYTIC COLITIS. Pepto Bismol worked fairly well, but I've read its effectiveness lessens with time. I have received much relief from coconut and virgin coconut oil. I buy unsweetened coconut chips and the oil and eat about two or three tablespoons coconut each day, use the oil on oatmeal and other foods. It relieves cramping, stomach pain and watery diarrhea.
