Regarding Turmeric and Aloe Vera for UC:
Bleeding increased for me using turmeric. I did some further checking and found that turmeric is a blood thinner so it can increase bleeding. I am still using aloe vera. Also called the companies for composition information about aloe and found that the only company to get aloe vera from without the "diarrhea factor" is Lily of the Dessert because is tests 40% lower in the laxative ingredient- and you can only use the inner filet juice NOT GEL because the gel has cargeena (sp?) which produces inflammation. So I am using 1 oz. Aloe vera juice 4 x a day and am working up to six, started with 1 oz. 2 times. Bleeding is my worst and biggest problem because it sends me to the hospital and I cannot afford to get more transfusions without the doctors trying to send me to surgery. I ordered the Butyrate enema kit today which builds mucosa lining.
