Ulcerative Colitis Remedies

High Fiber, Probiotics
Posted by Susan (Smyrna, Delaware) on 01/15/2013

I have had ulcerative colitis for 22 years and have tried a lot of different stuff! The best thing that I've found is high fiber (to sweep away the inflamation! ) and multiple probiotics. I eat what ever I want and I went to work for 30 years and rarely missed a day. My high fiber is oatmeal, cheerios, miniwheats, multigrain bread. Fiber 1 chewable is best if you don't get enough fiber with cereal. For years I had to push myself to go to work. The first time I took the probiotics I couldn't believe how much better I felt. I was getting sick once a year and using antibiotics for years and wasn't replacing the bacteria in my gut and had only bad bacteria in my gut. I was almost high from feeling good it had been so long. I use the pills once a month for maintenance and a few days after using an antibiotic for 10 days. (to put good bacteria back in! Antibiotics kill both good and bad bacteria! ) I take the pills the day before a day off because they will make you poop alot (just that first day!)
