Vitamin E Enema

I was diagnosed with UC about 8 months ago and was on corticosteroids and salofalk. After coming off of corticosteroids, my symptoms returned though a bit milder(diarrhea and some bleeding). For some time I played with my diet but it did not seem to have a great effect. I would eat only rice and boiled chicken with no fruits or vegetables but it would only work the first day. Then I came across a post regarding Vitamin E enema. It said use 2 capsules and increase to 10. It also advised not to eat white flour, rice, milk, sweets and fruits but it lots of vegetables. So I started the enema and on the third day all my symptoms disappeared. It has been three weeks now and I have almost forgotten I have UC. The enema gives me a bit of gas but that's about it.

I actually have fruits too like banana, avocado and mango. I have stuck to the 10 capsules a day and I also take 1 orally, vitamin D (2 capsules) together with Calcium and magnesium (1 capsule), Selenium and L-glutamin. However I started those extra supplements one week after I started the enema so Vitamin E has done the miracle and the others I'm taking to help make the healing process faster.

The therapy must be for no less than 3 months. I will keep you posted after 3 months when I stop but I would do it my whole life if I had to given that I would be symptom free and enjoy my fruits and vegetables!!

I suffer from ulcer colitis and this is the cure but you have to use it every now and then, just add anti inflammatory also like fish oil or bee probolis or acai berry etc, glutamine will cause alot of side effects so I advise to avoid it because if you discontinue a flare up will be worse than before. I puncture one vitamin e capsule and use it once or twice a day and take bee probolis, almost feeling normal. Do it guaranteed

Hi Marine, Could you please tell me where to buy Vitamin E Enemas? I would like to try your method! If you can't buy them could you please explain exactly how you do it yourself? Thanks

Hi Mark! Sorry just saw your question. You can't buy vitamin E enema on its own. You just need to buy the oil capsules and a small enema tube and make it yourself. you can add some distilled water to make sure it goes further up. But this should be approximately half a small coffee cup altogether so it stays inside. Total of about 4000-5000 IU. I would also recommend taking probiotics or Kefir if you can tolerate it as well as at least a teaspoon of L-glutamine. I also take a turmeric supplement and selenium. I know it sounds a lot perhaps but better than taking drugs which is the one thing I am trying to avoid. And of course watch your diet. Take out anything that makes your symptoms worse.

I have used a Fleet enema container filled w/ vegetable oil infused w/ Vit-A and Vit-E w/ good results. One little squirt on a daily basis will do. Most times the oil will remain inside the rectum/colon but sometimes it will expel as in the case of passing gas. A prior-to-retiring administration may be best and place a protective cloth or old towel underneath, just-in-case.

Hello,
I have been trying to find natural cures for my daughter's UC, which she has had since age 5. By accident, we discovered that eating large amounts of frozen blueberries would almost stop her bleeding and this was 10 years before anyone started studying them. Also, her Doctor of Oriental Medicine uses capsules of an herb called indigo that also stop the bleeding. As well, she has done well from eating black beans. There really seems to be a connection between these items and a rich purple/blue coloring chemical/nutrient that does something to seriously reduce the inflamation. Just recently her GI specialist started her on something called Floristor, an over the counter with beneficial yeast in a preparation similar to acidopholus in effect. I just read a study that combined blueberries and acidopholus that had some really promising results. After her being on every hideous drug made, I have never stopped looking for natural alternatives and have tried everything, including reiki, angel therapy, prayer, kinesiology, NAET. It is really difficult to find pediatric GI's who are open to any alternative medicine.

Posted by Jane (Arkansas, Usa) on 04/12/2010

Well I have read many times that the ingestion of flavanoids decreases inflamation. Great that you have found something that works, perjaps taking one of the products that contain red wine flavanoids or blueberry flavanoids might be a more efficient route. Just a thought good luck!

Hello,

Here's are 3 links from an email from healthiertalk.com that I think you will find interesting and might want to post a link on EC for those who imbibe, need a natural cancer cure, or have ulcerative colitis. Very interesting but not likely you will ever hear about any of it from orthodox medicine, since they can't be patented. They aren't anxious to kill their cash cows before milking them dry!

I think that the food diary and watching what you eat is a good idea, however, it's different for everyone. You can't say that every person with UC who eats these foods will have problems, because that's just not true. I have UC and yellow cheese doesn't bother me at all, neither does rice. It may work for some people, but for others the foods they eat don't really affect them. I seem to be the same no matter what I eat. There is no need to assume that your list of approved foods is the way to go for everyone.

Check out what Dom in Austrailia has to say about curing ulcerative colitis:
http://users.sa.chariot.net.au/~dna/IBD/index.htm

My experience: I am a 70 year old male diagnosed with UC in 1996. I tried a lot of natural remedies and finally achieved remission in 2004 with megadoses of probiotics - about 1.2 trillion CFU/day, some store-bought and some from my home-made kefir. When I tried lowering the dosage, my symptoms returned within 10 days. During this time I eased off and quit taking Asacol.

In December, 2008, I did a 7-day diet of nothing but water and brown rice: water - 1 glass in the AM plus enough to cook the rice rice - 2 tbls raw, soaked overnight plus 4 quarter-cup servings throughout the day.

I only did stage 1 of Dom's protocol. Right away, I quit taking the store-bought probiotics and after a few months stopped the kefir. I feel that I am still healing but I have had NO symptoms of the UC. Hope this will help someone.

Hi Paul;

Answers:
How am I doing now? Absolutely great! I eat what I want and have had no UC symptoms for over a year.

Did I do the 7-day diet again? No, but for insurance I did three more days in February 2009. I don't think it made any difference.

Was it difficult? I hope this answer doesn't discourage you but yes it was about the hardest thing I have ever done as an adult. I live in an area with a lot of restaurants and just the smell of food was driving me nuts. You won't starve, you can eat as much brown rice as you want, but it sure is bland.

There is a cure. Go for it!

Hi I can't access Don's link... I have been diagnosed with UC and just been out on steroids, which did help me get back to work but am so afraid of the side effects. this brown rice diet sounds amazing could you please post the details? Can you mix olive oil or cilantro in it for flavour? Thank you all for posting your cures I am regaining hope that there might be something for me to go into remission if the month of steroids doesn't work..... Thank you very very much.

EC: Just checked - the link still works!

Posted by Josephus (Seattle, Wa, Usa) on 05/23/2010

Hi Kiarah;

If you have still not been able to access Dom's site... He suggests several things you can mix with your rice (I presume for flavor); 1 tsp natural non-pasturised soy sauce, 1 tsp non-pasturised miso, 1/2 cube sofu (preserved bean curd) and 1 cup green or herbal tea with each meal. He also says do not eat or drink anything not listed here. All that sounded like more than I wanted. I ate nothing but brown rice for seven days and it worked!!

Hi Josephus,

I'm really hoping you get this, or happen to stop by on this thread...

I read through Don's webpage and decided to undergo the brown rice diet.

I am on Day 4... Just ate last meal of day, so I guess day 5 :)... Anyways, I was wondering if you eased into your regular eating habits after the 7 days according to Dom's instructions or if you eased into your regular habits like a regular fast, or if you just jumped right into your regular diet

Also, you said you had 4 quarter cup servings throughout the day... As in just a quarter of a cup of brown rice 4 times a day! ? That sounds great because I'm having trouble finishing more than 4-5 bite fulls of rice this far into the diet as just the smell of the brown rice is kind of nauseating to me. Would also love to hear how you're doing this long after going through it... God Bless

Hi Jumpshotc7

Sorry to be so long in replying - just got back from a couple of months in Mexico.

I hope you continued the brown rice regimen for the 7 days and the results were worth the difficulties.

For me, it was definitely worth it. It's now over 2 years and I have absolutely no symptoms of UC, no food restrictions and feel that I am completely healed.

Best of luck.

Hi Harsh;

Here's the brown rice diet as I did it.

1) Each morning drink 1 glass of water.

2) Each morning eat (chew well) 2 tablespoons of raw brown rice that has been soaked overnight in water.

3) During the day cook and eat 4 meals, each with 1/4 cup brown rice and 1/2 cup water.

That's it. Eat no other food or beverage.

Do this diet for a minium of 7 days. If you still have colitis symptoms, continue for another 2 or 3 days. At the end, ease back into your regular eating pattern with light meals of fruit and vegetables.

Good luck!!

Hi Nicole; I know it's tough but please stick to it!! It's been over two years for me and my colitis is still completely gone. Hard to remember that far back but I think I was seeing positive results, easing of symptoms, after 4 or 5 days and completely gone after 7.

I wish you the best of luck. Let us know how you do.

Hi Josephus,

Thank you for the encouragement. I have been seeing an easing of symptoms. Today is day 7 and (sorry for the specifics) yesterday held two BMs. Major victory! But somehow I am disappointed that it is not all the way better.

By being completely normal by the seventh day, did you mean consistency of BMs as well as number?

I'm debating whether I will do an extra day or not. If today is at least similar I don't think I will. I am going to do Dom's kefir bit, which I think will be helpful for me since I've always felt this has been a bacterial issue.

I Developed UC symptoms in 2006 and it's been all downhill ever since! But in all seriousness, I like anyone reading this knows either from experience or desperation that medical science just won't help the way it should, which generally leads people to investigate alternitives.

So I'm in the process of doing this as well. What I discovered from searching around is that this is based on an old Macrobiotic Diet, Diet Number 7 I beileve.

The trouble with this diet is, it's got complex-carbs in it which are BAAAADDD for UC sufferers... However... It also has anti-oxidants and prebiotic ellements to it and will help level out your PH levels, which in theory could be very helpful for IBD.

Prebiotics in particular are one thing people with UC can not have too much of. Anyone who recovers from UC, prebiotic foods will likely be the best way to maintain remission simply because it feeds your gut flora.

I can tell you I've been doing it longer then seven days already, but I haven't stopped yet. Has it helped? I'm really not sure. Ive had chronic Copper poisaning due to the high acidic level in our well water, which is causing leaching metals to be strained into my food/drink... So I'm unreliable to ask at this point.

BUT just so you know: Over here it's stated that it might actually make your condition worse:

http://www.tolaymat.com/Diet-English/Macrobiotics/Macro7Diet-E.htm

Over here it's stated that it takes 1 Week to 3 Months to cure IBD (but it doesn't say it's done with this diet):

http://www.tolaymat.com/Diet-English/Illnesses/Diarrhea-E.html

If it improves anything at all... I will be back to post.

OK so... A little background first before I get into it. As I mentioned in the previous post, I was having bleeding issues. I also had a sensitivity to the brown rice too because of the carbs in it- so here's what I did:

I allowed the rice to soak for a day first (to allow it to sprout and to make sure any enzyme inhibitors/chemicals were dissipated) then rinsed them off and placed them in a blender to turn the rice into rice-flour. Then I ate the flower raw (4x a day), I did not cook it. However, I FULLY chewed (and broke down) the rice as much as I could before swallowing. Our saliva has natural enzymes in it to help break down and thus allow us to better absorb food. Even people (like me) who have carbohydrate sensitivity can avoid alot of grief just from taking the time to do this. To aid me I had a small glass of water that had lemon juice (to increase my saliva output). I drank water with each meal to avoid dehydration.

For awhile I was still bleeding which concerned me. Also, I was getting allot of yellow bile in my stool which I know is not good. If I hadnt felt like I had nothing left to lose I don't think I would have continued as long. Even though this took longer then the prescribed 7 days... It did at last seem to work. I have full stools and no bleeding. Am I cured? I'm going to assume no, however I believe I've put myself in remission. This diet has given me a huge advantage and I just might have a chance to keep this under control now!

This is a HUGE deal folks. People with UC take notice!! I know chances are youve tried alot of things, some of which may have helped to a certain degree (Like Sheldon's Vitamin-E enema). I know your probably weary of all this, have seen more then your share of contradictary information, scammers and all-out B. S. - I know how it is. All I can say is I tried this and it seems like it's working. I really stuck with it even when I was sure it wasn't helping. I'm glad I did that.

As I mentioned in the previous post, there are alot of great qualities to Brown Rice. It just might have the right combination of nutrients and other elements to allow our bodies to heal themselves. Here's a link to scientific study information about Organic Brown Rice, I recommend people take a look:

http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=839417

I'll come back to post again as a follow up. Not sure when, but probably a long time from now. Good luck to all of us.

I have ulcerative colitis and was taking Lialda until I discovered Ashitaba powder. I make a tea using 1 tsp of Ashitaba powder and 8 ounces of hot water and drink it every evening. I haven't had an attack in three weeks even though I stopped taking my prescription medicine. The powder isn't bad tasting; however it looks like swamp water and there are little pieces of the Ashitaba that don't dissolve but the person who grows this claims that's the part of the Ashitaba that causes the healing. The Ashitaba also comes in capsule and liquid form but the grower says it's not as effective as the powder.

I have had ulcerative colitis for 46 years now. For much of that time I have not had medical insurance and therefore through necessity had to investigate naturopathic remedies. I have had great success with a combination of diet (avoiding most white flour and sugar products when I can and adding vegetables, fruit and I still do not get along except for apples and cantalope) and 1/4 cup aloe vera juice (I use one formulated for digestive problems) with 1/2 teaspoon of l-glutamine. When I had attacks I used the formula 3x daily. I have to avoid milk and milk products but I use soy milk for calcium along with copious quantities of steamed broccoli. Surprisingly I can eat cruciferous vegetables without the problems most people have. I try to eat only organic meats and in season grow my own vegetables. The foregoing has given me a real measure of control for the last 15 years before that it was on and off. Purported remedies would work for a while and then stop working. Last year I discovered probiotics in an over the counter preparation forumlated for crohns and colitis sufferers. I can now say that I feel normal. I was interested in some of the suggestions in the posts and will try them. There is no cure for colitis, but it can be controlled when you pay attention to what you are putting in your body. Reducing stress is ideal but not practical in our society.

Hey, back in the beginning of February of 2010 I had to go to the hospital and they told me I had colitis. Well, now that you mentioned antibiotics, I remembered that earlier in the year I had been given antibiotics for my tonsilitis. But I wanted to make sure if it was before or after my flare up. I just found my pill bottle and the date I was prescribed those antibiotics was about 15 days prior to me getting very ill with colitis. I think I may just have found what caused my colitis. In my opinion, penicillin will definitely kill off your good flora. However, I was given different antibiotics specifically for calming down colitis flare ups. So I think penicillin is really bad for your intestines. It attacks the bad and the good. Thanks for your info. [email protected]

To A Roper from Sydney,

Great news on the non recurrence of ulcerative colitis.

I just saw a success story of a lady who had suffered from UC for years and was on continued meds to keep the UC under control.

She experimented with Colloidal Silver and in two weeks could tell the UC had dramatically diminished. Now, three months later she is not on meds and the symptoms of UC are gone.

She is convinced the Silver finally killed the infection.

Please let us know if the Black strap molassas is still working. I'm wondering what would happen if it's mixed with or eaten with Turmeric? Wow..that may be a great affect no?

I usually have some turmeric in my food (i'm indian), but now adding more, and I may get the supplement, plus aloe vera, and try to the black strap molaassas. Also read in Ayurveda book that Licorice Root enemas are great to do for colitis symptoms.

Hello eveyone, I just discovered this thread whilst looking for a cure for my 6year old who was diagnosed with colitis last year. She has been on steroids over a year, imuran and pentasa were stopped due to pancreatitis. I believe there is a cure for colitis out there just a matter of knowing. But I would love to hear from anyone with a remedy for colitis that did help. I am always researching and want my daughter to be cured from this disease. What is the best way to give tumeric, I normaly mix a little in water. I also give her fish oil and blackseed powder.

I'm suffering from UC for a 5 consequtive years with few short remissions due to hydro-cortison and salofalc therapy. However, it does not help for last year or so. I've read your notice about L-Glutamine. I checked over internet and has found lots of it, in pills, powder and something else. But it all refers to some fitness and bodybuilders's sites. Is it the same remedy that you meant? If yes, what type is better - pills, powder or any? Please advise.

Hi:
I heard that U-Colitis can be maintained in remission using Clay ( Betonite clay) ( internal or compression); can someone confirm that this works or not;
Is it safe for someone who is in flare stage with a lot of blood in the stool to take Clay ? Thank you for your attention.

Drink an ounce of Aloe Vera juice every day (I shwish it around then swallow for oral benefits also) You can mix a little fruit juice for flavor if you like. Eliminate all dairy products. There are many great substitutes: Soy yogurt, soy "ice cream" soy "milk" (add a little chocolate for flavor) tofutti "ice cream" tofutti cream cheese, (works great on a bagel or a burger) soy sour cream on baked potatoe.

I have been drug free for 21 years. If I cheat, I gurgle all night and have skin problems for weeks.

According to Dr. D'Adamo, who discovered what foods certain blood types should use, the only blood type that can use aloe vera juice with no problems or with benefits, is blood type A. I'm blood type O and it worked for me once, back in the 80's. It's never worked for me since. I'm using it now because I'm desperate but it's not helping. According to this doctor, type O's should follow the caveman diet because we were the original blood type and blood types changed as man began to expand out of Africa to other parts of the world, thus eating different types of food. I admit I have a problem with this because of my palate, I don't like meat! I love milk products and according to my dna, I don't have a problem with milk. As for everyone with colitis, use common sense, don't eat sugared foods, soda pop, caffeine, alcohol, and processed foods. You could check into this concept if the SCD diet hasn't helped because it is mainly the caveman diet.

Food Allergy Tests

Food allergy test cured my ulcerative colitis. I had severe ulcerative colitis for 18 years. Medicines helped suppress it, but being pregnant or nursing for 10 of those years, I wouldn't take medicine. Tried lots of alternatives,..oils, alfalfa juice, they help some. Got tested for over 100 different food allergies and found I had an allergy to eggs. I quit and all symptoms disappeared in 1 week. I noticed it returned with avengence after drinking alot of almond milk, but it stopped when I stopped drinking it. You will need a test that detects IgG-mediated (delayed) food allergies. Go to optimumhealthresource.com for info on the test I took. You can do it yourself at home if you don't have a doctor to administer it. It's expensive, but it saved my life. I've been symptom free for 3 years now.

I was interested in Marie's response about the allergy testing. I have severe colitis as well. I do believe in the allergy testing. however, I was curious how she did for 10 years without meds before the testing. I could not possibly do that without getting very very sick. I am curious to know how she did that.


Sweet Whey

Q? What is sweet whey? Is it the same as whey protein ie a dried powder, or the whey left after making junket? There are many things on the web not available here so I would appreciate your comments. Thanks.


Sweet Whey
Posted by Catherine (Wellington, New Zealand) on 10/28/2008

Further to question about sweet whey... Have discovered some info which I am sharing in case others wish to know.

Sweet whey is a product of the cheese making process in which RENNET is used. Junket is made with rennet and after setting, it can be cut with a knife and strained thru muslin, the curds make a simple cottage cheese and the drained liquid is the whey...Now as a child I happily drank the junket whey and it was sweet and refresshing to the taste, so I'll start doing the homemade cottage cheese again and, like Miss Muffet, eat my curds & whey. Thanks to all the wonderful people out there who share their cures for the benefit of all.

I was just reading the package insert on the probiotics my brother was taking. It says that if you stop taking them, their effectiveness diminishes. Made me wonder for a second, why take this if you just keep having to take more gut colonizing bacteria? But I brushed the thought away and have the capsules to my brother who is limp on the couch with a terrible ulcerative colitis flare. It's been a week since he was diagnosed, but he's had symptoms longer than I think we realized. Where did you get sweet whey?


Baking Soda and Magnesium Citrate
Posted by Heidi (Mt. Pleasant, IA) on 11/03/2008

Hi Ted, I have been using the baking soda and magnesium citrate formula for my condition for several months along with magnesium and potassium vitamins. While it does help it is not clearing up my problem. I was diagnosed with an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine and tried the antibiotic route of Flagyl for about 6 days before quitting as it made me so much worse. Is there anything else I can do to kill this bacteria off? I have been doing the heavy metal cleanse of garlic, olive oil, and cilantro 4 days on and 3 days off. I was eating a clove a day for 6 days but my kidneys began to ache and hurt. Thought I was detoxing too fast so switched to the other remedy. I am also taking aloe vera juice, ocassional slippery elm, dandelion capsules on my off garlic days, licorice root capsules, and I just bought some activated charcoal. Going to give it a try. Also going to order some hydrogen peroxide. Also, is this bacteria the same type that causes the UC or something different? I also tested myself via the "spit in the glass test" for candida and was positive. I take coconut oil capsules and eliminated virtually all sugar and bread from my diet and tested again and it was not there anymore. However, I still have other symptoms of systemic candida that also coincide with flare ups of this intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Wondering if candida is the name for this bacteria overgrowth that dr.s tested me for but they do not recognize candida as a disease? What do you think?

I was browsing the Internet for anything that would help my Ulcerative Colitis. I have had it for about 10 years (I may not have it any more though ;-) ). The thing that worked for me was Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS). Most people are skeptical because of the word "Miracle", but I highly recommend it. "Don't knock it, until you've tried it." It's basically Sodium Chlorite / Chlorine Dioxide. You may want to do a little bit of research, but it wasn't that bad for me at all. I would go into details, but it takes about 20 pages to describe. I have a log online. If you want the log, just contact me and I'll send you the URL.

I can eat virtually anything I want (I'm still getting used to being normal again). The "treatment" took about 2-3 months, but I feel BRAND NEW!!!!

EC: Yep, we're hearing a lot of great things about MMS, especially from Joyce.

Hello Matt, You can google Miracle Mineral Supplement and download the first half of Jim Humble's book for free, it has a nominal fee for downloading the 2nd half of his book. He is a very interesting guy and his long time persistence in trying to get this information out to the general public is to be commended. It is rather lenghy but interesting reading.

For a short summary of how it works and what it does, you can pull up the reference that mentions MMS - "no miracle, just wonderful chemistry". I think this fellow's site calls himself the Phaelosopher.

Have fun reading.

Well, it turns out I may have spoken a bit too soon or went off of it a little bit too soon. I have been having a few issues lately. Either way, I am back on the MMS again and now I'm not sure if the effects are Herxheimer or UC now.

Also, I reread the MMS protocol again and it turns out I never actually finished the entire process. So, I attribute this second coming to that. I only did the 15 drops about 5 times total. It turns out, you're supposed to do the 15 drops twice a day for an entire week.

Hello,

I saw your post and would like to receive your log. I have started mms few months ago on and off after I completed 21 days 1000 protocol. Recently I was feeling that some infection starts so I took 6 drops and after an hour 6 drops again. The next day I took 6 activated drops once and then continued with an hourly 3 drops for 7 doses. Now my legs hurt so much I can barely lie down. Please tell me what I can do to feel good again? Thank you.

Oscillococcinum is very effective for me for any flu like issues and works on headaches too. A bath would help you with some water and lemon, orange or pineapple. You could add some epsom salts if you have them or even a bit of baking soda might help. The bath takes water out of the body and fingers shrivel....so you drink water while soaking. The bath tricks the brain to shrink the pain signals. Get some music and a candle and soak a while. It makes the brain think the pain is coming from the body of water and not the legs. I ruptured l-5 and this was my go to pain relief for over a year. You could use milk thistle or activated charcoal to detox you of your die off symptoms. Molybdenum might help if you have any on hand. ginger with lemon or either or both. I am just giving you tips....not all of the above. Baking soda in water might help you get neutralized. Read the box for instructions.

Mohammed, I am sorry it took so long to get back to you. I haven't been on the website for quite a while. A raw foods diet has worked perfectly for me. As long as I continue to eat whole foods (fruits and vegetables) as the majority of my diet, then I am free from any symptoms. When I try to incorporate other foods into my diet (bread,sweets,any fast foods,etc.) my symptoms reappear. Staying on this raw foods diet is quite a challenge at times, but it is truly worth it. I can almost guarantee that your symptoms will disappear if you stick to it! Happy eating and God bless!

Fruit Enzymes

A couple of years ago, I was diagnosed with colitis. I went to the doctor constantly with diarherra, pus and bleeding. I was having pain after every meal and at one point, was losing a pound a day. My doctor told me that I would have to stay on a diet of soft foods. I found a book on the internet called "Crohns and Colitis". The author talked about eating a strict fruit diet. I starting doing it and the symptoms that I had been suffering from for over a year left me. The enzymes in the fruit made all of the difference.

Fruit Enzymes
Posted by R.M (Stanton, Ca, USA) on 06/21/2008

Fruit smoothies works as good as prednisone, though the prednisone has to be tapered of gradually. Without fruit smoothies, flare ups occurred even with prednisone and asacol. Not a cure, but a great help. Lets put it this way, I am NOT on prednisone (praise the Almighty), which is really MORE than I can ask for. One cup; made from all fresh fruit with 1/2 tsp of soy protein (from the powder mix). BTW, I also gave up black tea, except if constipated, and reduced all sweets except when I go on a binge. Also, DARK Chocolate in VERY SMALL quantities (an ounce?) helps shut off any symptoms of GERD.


Fruit Enzymes
Posted by Debra (Bradenton, FL) on 07/06/2009

I must agree with the fruit enzymes. I was diagnosed with colitis over 8 years ago & suffered everyday around 4 pm with severe cramping & diarrhea. I tried many remedies & cut out certain foods. Nothing really changed. 4 years ago, a frozen custard shop opened in my neighborhood. I was hooked. 5 nights a week I would get a vanilla custard with strawberries & rasberries. A week after I started eating it consistantly, I noticed my symptoms subsided. Today, I may get an episode once every 3 or 4 months. And that is usually due to going out of town for a week & not eating my berries.

To take the Turmeric -use fresh ground turmeric root mixed with a pinch of Black Pepper and coconut oil to increase the potency of turmeric. Butter milk with a little ginger. Star Anise(Chakri Phool), Tulsi, Fresh Coconut water, Cardamom(Elaichee).Triphala is an Ayurvedic formula that can be used for UC-buy a high quality brand.

Eat easy to digest foods, and eat small meals at frequent intervals-like Moong ki Khichdi. Try some Yoga and meditation and avoid stress.

Using chemical drugs (treatment) for a long time can harm our overall health or cause a new problem. So good to balance it with natural remedy. But before trying any herbs, pls search enough information about the herbs or consult with herbalist/naturopath/dietician. As herbs can be strong enough or interfere with drugs. Turmeric has many benefits for health including cure for cancer, but search what the right dose is, don't overdose.

Worked Temporarily

I just tried taking baking soda for ulcerative colitis and it seemed to make things worse. I got a ph test kit and my ph seems to be alkaline most of the time anyway. as my ph came down after taking the baking soda my bowel got better. Not sure whats going on but it is very weird. what to do?

Baking Soda
Posted by Daniel (USA) on 09/12/2007

Thank you Ted. I did not explain myself very well I took baking soda and citric acid together for two days. It made me feel a bit sick on both occasions. I got the ph test kit the next day and then saw that my saliva ph and urine ph were above 8. my bowel had got worse after taking this 2 times over two days so I stopped taking it. I have kept checking my ph and after stopping, my ph came down but remains at about 6.5 to 7.0 and my bowel has settled a bit. I will try taking magnesium and zinc as you have suggested. my saliva or urine ph has never gone below about 6.4 since I started checking. do you think taking the baking soda and citric acid would still help? I take steroids and should be acidic but seem to be more alkaline than what is mentioned as normal 6.4. Side note: the antibiotic ciprofloxacin is the only thing to ever work on my ulcerative colitis but does not work like it used too. So it is a bacteria that is the cause of my ulcerative colitis at least. Once again thank you for your help


Baking Soda
Posted by Ted (Bangkok, Thailand) on 09/14/2007 385 posts

In event the urinary pH and saliva pH is above 8, baking soda is not to be used, and a more appropriate remedy to modify is to take the magnesium and zinc supplements. Usually sulfate reducing bacteria causes destructive colitis and low sulfur foods may also help in addition to magnesium and zinc. In event the pH is high, it would indicate a different sickness altogether, but in the meantime lower sulfur foods, magnesium chloride supplements and zinc acetate is the preferred solution for people with alkalosis (rare), instead of acidosis. Alkalosis is not good news either, as it indicates the body lacks chlorides or loss too much chlorides from either medication of salt free food. In that instances, 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt in one liter of water would be helpful, and apple cider vinegar taken without the baking soda will offer the best help to normalizing the pH and correcting the chlorides lost.


Baking Soda
Posted by Daniel (New Plymouth, New Zealand) on 09/25/2007

Thank again Ted I have been trying magnesium and zinc and baking soda mix as you suggested and have had some success. This time I felt better shortly after taking the solution after 2 day morning and night I had less almost no bleeding But then a strange thing happened. The next time I went to the toilet I had bad bleeding and my stool felt hot and burning my ph was 7.5 urine and I tested my stool as best I could and it was about 8.0 saliva was 6.0 and I was getting a bit of reflux odd yes but I will see how thing go in the next few days. Any suggestions would be great Regards


Baking Soda
Posted by Ted (Bangkok, Thailand) on 09/30/2007 385 posts

It takes about 2 weeks at least for the body to adjust its pH completely. While the remedy is not 100%, a tiny amount of potassium citrate or potassium bicarbonate is needed as a small tweak, such as 1/8 teaspoon of potassium citrate to the 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. As the body tries to recover, it does need some vitamin C, although a sodium ascorbate form is more safer generally not too much is taken so that it can heal such as 250 mg of sodium ascorbate for example. The ulcerative colitis major remedies, are still the baking soda, magnesium and zinc nevertheless. It is a bacteria that grows whenever the body is deficient in certain common minerals (magnesium and zinc), but also pH. It should be noted that certain other kinds of bacteria also tend to flourish in a high metal environment. However, some chinese parsley may also help slowly remove the heavy metals, but the most important factor, I think is to avoid sugar, vegetable oils, and high fat foods.


Baking Soda
Posted by Daniel (New Plymouth, New Zealand) on 10/14/2007

Once again Ted Thanks your information has been great. I have been getting better The bleeding is nearly gone. but I still get hot runny stools do you know why this could be? This happened when I first took baking soda and when I take it for a few days in a row but not sure. I also get a bit of Abdominal pain at this time to. My urine ph is good mostly 7.5 8 when I test it. Is this just a side effect of taking baking soda or maybe taking a bit much.

I had symptoms for five months. Went to the ER with pressure in my abdomen, bloating, low fever, chills, nausea and headache. I was given ALL the tests CAT scan, blood work and ultrasound all came back normal. I still had symptoms that seemed to fit with ulceration colitis so I tried Ted's Remedy - 1/2 teaspon each of Milk of Magnesia and Baking Soda in glass of water I did this twice daily. My symptoms decreased 50% the first day and by day three all symptoms were gone! However, I will continue with the remedy for ten days just to be on the safe side. I'm glad I wasn't diagnosed by my doctor in the states, because I do not want a preexisting conditions in my medical chart! Crazy as that sounds!


Dietary Changes
Posted by Cindy (Boone, North Carolina) on 03/29/2010

I was diagnosed with UC 34 years ago. After initial bout it went into remission for 10 years. NO meds, no doctor, perfect health and three children. Then it came out of remission with a vengence. I was on 6mp, asacol, and a specific carbohydrate diet. Took probiotics, fish oil and other supplements. Went off the 6mp but continued the other things and it stayed in remission NO flares for 6 years. Well, now it is back again. Asacol isnt working. Doctor says that this is the nature of the disease. Remissions followed by active disease. Push for remission but unless God intervenes realize it is most usually a lifetime of cycles of activity and remission.

Just a follow up on this.......... Probiotics did the trick for four years, but I am having a bad flare up. I have been suffering for slightly over five weeks now, of increaed bathroom trips, blood, etc. I have upped my probiotic intake, but no luck.

I am researching the site now to try some potential remedies. I am trying to avoid steroids at all costs. I checked my pH level(based on my saliva) and it look to be in the high 6's -- hard to determine exactly with the strips that I am using. Any suggestions what to try first?

I am leaning towards Baking Soda plus water, just for convenience.

I had bad UC flareup and suffered for about a year. I found respite in first morning auto-urine therapy and drinking Hibiscus tea twice a day. Also to abstain from nuts, milk products, gluten and sugar. Take a few pinch of salt on tongue before meals. And of course healthy meals rich in veggies.
