Hi Sheldon, I've had ulcerative colitis for 7yrs and in the last 2yrs have not been able to get it under control. For the past 6mths I have been consulting a homeopath and this and probiotics have brought me to about 70% recovery. Now at a stand still, with still traces of blood and the urgency still, I started the vitamin e enema. I've been doing 5000iu for about 3weeks now and there's still the blood and urgency. My diet consists of the veggie mixture, brown rice and tuna, some cheddar cheese, homemade lactose free yogart and a few other things free of sugars. Have you heard of many people where the enema's didn't have an effect on their condition and should I try a larger dose to try to reach more of my colon. One more question, what causes the urgency, I have pretty good formation of my stools but still they keep me running! I realize that you're not a GI specialist but they have made things sound pretty bleak and I'm much better with the natural approach than meds. Any direction you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
