Ulcerated Colitis is a serious intestinal condition that needs both Othodox medicine and Natural medicine. Orthodox medicine needs to control the inflammation and ulceration with medication. Natural medicine can help support the body to not lose too much vital nutrition.
Often people with this condition experience a lot of weight loss from not absorbing nutrition because of the ulcer's in the colon and they have a lot of diarrhoea (often bloody), so they need to correct nutritional deficiencies that result.
Vitamin B's are important - so a very good B Complex is essential; a Folic Acid supplement is essential; and a Probiotic supplement such as Lactobacillis Reuteri is essential.
Along with this a diet that contains good health easy to digest food is essential - No sugar, No Dairy, No Fast Foods, No raw salads or fruits.
Eat good easy to digest proteins like fish, eggs, soy; and cooked vegetables; and stewed fruits.
By taking both the medication to control the inflammation, and supporting the digestive system there is a good chance that you can prevent a colon removal.
I would recommend that you consult with a good Dietitian for a complete diet, and a Naturopath to look after the supportive supplementation.
