I felt compelled to share something that has been helpful for my daughter's U/C. We stumbled across it completely by accident when looking for a natural sinus infection cure. We purchased a box of Nature's Way Umcka Cold Care. We decided to go with the 'soothing hot drink-lemon flavor' option as it was slightly less expensive than the other forms of the product. Within 2 doses she started to show signs of intestinal relief. Initially, she did have one movement of passing a lot of mucous. After doing some reading on the ingredient in this product (Pelargonium sidoides), I would attribute that to the fact that it has expectorant properties to expel contaminated mucous. Within a couple of days, she was starting to have stools that were somewhat formed & only going to the bathroom 3 times a day. It seems that the history of P. Sidoides indicates that it was also used for intestinal ailments as well as respiratory ailments. I don't know exactly which properties (or maybe it's a combination of them all) makes it effective but it's cetainly worth a try.
We have tried so many natural things in order to minimize having to use pharmaceutical drugs & other drastic medical interventions (surgery, immunodepressants). This includes diet changes, acupuncture, supplements, Sangre De Grado, etc. Dealing with any of these horrible digestive diseases is a nightmare. I'm not saying this is a "cure-all" for U/C but maybe it can bring some relief to someone else out there that is suffering from this hellish disease. It's certainly worth a try. Good Luck!!!
