Thought I would go over what I have been on and done to treat my UC and see if it benefits anyone else. I was diagnosed almost exactly a year ago in February 2017. UC in different people has different flare triggers seemingly most common are Gluten, Diary, Soy. Some cases are Caffeine, Coffee, chocolate, Glucose, Fructose, Sucralose, Carbs. For me the 3 top ones, with sugars and carbs, and certain spices...coffee, caffeine, and chocolate seem fine....SUGAR was the worst causing not just bloody stools but moderate amounts of fruits or added sugars would cause distention. Before diagnosis I thought for years I had bad gut bacteria due to the swelling, gas, and bloody stools.

I was originally put on  Delzicol for it, but after losing my insurance and the prescriptions costing $680 I had to give it up. I turned to dropping all grains, sugars, starchy veggies, and using Marshmallow Powder (1tsp) twice a day. Recently after getting sick with a cold I started Thayers Slippery Elm Lozenges to deal with the sore throat and found that having 3-4 of them a day worked wonders with my UC....was more apparent when I tried getting off them and had a rebound flare that was really bad til I started them back up. And I drink 8oz of Aloe Vera Inner Fillet in a tea twice daily.

SO 300-600mg of Thayers Slippery elm dosed out thought the day
1 tsp marshmallow root powder or 3 capsules from Natures Way twice a day
8oz Aloe Vera Inner Fillet twice a day
with diet has kept it under control almost as good as the RX stuff I was on.....well the RX allowed me to have Mexican spices without flares which...now will flare me if I do not watch it.....I had to give up salsa. (Grew up in a mexican family....so this hit home)

Love to see how others manage it and what others might have as triggers for their flares and the symptoms

I dump the capsules out and mix the powder up into tea and down it

Also still take the aloe vera inner fillet 8oz twice a day.

    To the OP, once in a while this stuff happens.  Please feel free to start a new topic if that would make it easier.  I am afraid this is just part of forums on the internet. I hope this didn’t chase you off.  
    @anasss Nobody in this thread has called anyone "ignorant," so please don't say that if it did not happen. Also, the use of all capitals is, in forums and other places on the Internet, generally considered yelling and impolite, and there ...
    Bshake, Look up the "baking soda test" ...it is a nice home test to see if your daughter could have low stomach that is triggering the ulcers or creating the perfect conditions for ulcers to develop....mastic gum as has been mentioned...
