I understand you have been discussing herbs and cleanses, however I thought you may wish to know about Ozone. The most profound healing events I have ever heard of (and experienced) were from Ozone. The first person I ever spoke to about Ulcerative Colitis was in the mid 90's, a woman who undergone several surgeries for UC and her doctors promised her many more, until finally her colon would be gone. She heard about ozone, began using ozone insufflations, and never had a UC flare up again. Needless to say, she never had a surgery again. This is definitely worth looking into for anyone looking for an easier answer.
