    I have suffered from uc for 25 years with periodic flare ups over this time and I felt I had to share my latest re it in case this is remotely beneficial to any other sufferer. Am just recovering from most recent flare. I lost about 1 and half stones in 6 week period. I commenced steroids taking asacol [ had been recently changed to Pentasa but that has got to be worst mistake I ever made. I was crippled with wind for about 5 days which obviously exacerbated uc even more. Realised Pentasa was a problem and stopped it. Within 24 hours the awful wind pains resolved. I am at present on steroids . Asacol, bovine cholesterol, serrapeptase , bone broth [have been taking it for about a month ] various vitamins. However I believe what has been most beneficial for me this time has been the introduction of 1 teaspoon of lepicol or similiar - I am using the one with probiotics in it - 1 teaspoon of psyllium seed [ it has an influential effect surrounding release and utilisation of butyric acid which is beneficial for uc ] and it has got to be the seed. The only place I could source in the uk was online ' Just Ingredients' , 1 teaspoon of hemp seed. I also put couple of tablespoons of kefir in it for probiotics. I take it twice a day. I make up the concoction night before and let it sit overnight to let it gel, have it about half hour before breakfast and then add kefir just before I drink it. Just make sure to stir it all very well. I then make my second glass and have it before dinner in evening. I must say my recovery from uc has never been so rapid. I have had no trouble from foul smelling wind which would have been a major problem . I hope this info is of some use to some fellow sufferers cos I have lost so many years of my

    Iife to uc !
