Ulcerative Colitis Tips


One of the 15,000 ulcerative colitis folks using the site adds:
"Like many UCers I have spent many hours trawling the internet googling the condition and came across your website a few years ago. I read your ebook and really liked your honesty and humour. As everyone says your positivity is so encouraging and now this is my go to website when I'm thinking about UC. Thankfully my symptoms are pretty much under control at the moment but just wanted to say thanks." Kate

Comments About the Doctor:

For the first time ever I love my doc. Dr. Pratha is great, she’s an Integrative GI, listens to me, asks the appropriate questions and makes the appropriate suggestions, which may be a book, diet related, or medicine related. She’s professional, has great manners, is friendly, great listener. Office staff is great too. NP Alison has UC herself so she’s one of “us”. Never had an issue with insurance, and she does some clinical trials in her other business so she’s up to date on the latest “stuff”

I learned of her through the local CCFA support group meetings, by asking others who their Doctor was and if they liked them.

Highly recommend her!

    Do you know if Dr. Pratha sees children? My daughter has had UC for 7 years now and her current doctor only believes in meds not diet. I heard Dr. Pratha does believe in diet. Just wondering if she would see my daughter. I haven’t found any doctor that believes in diet that sees children.

    Thanks,

      Hi Yara. I don’t know. please call the office and ask. Yes, it’s sad that doctors don’t believe diet is part of the problem – it’s really not their fault – it’s the system and the education they receive in school. Do let us know if she sees children. And PS – I run the San Diego Crohn’s and Colitis support and activity group – we’re 50 IBD’ers on the path to healing. One other little guy has IBD – he’s 10 I think. Message me if you want more info. We have a private facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/392644244143471/?sid=0.18253826280124485

      dr pratha is AMAZING. We saw her years ago when our son was just 8 years. The meds weren’t helping, she recommending VSL probiotics and a whole lot more. She treats kids, however, if our son had a relapse she couldn’t treat him, we’d have to go to Rady Childrens, GI department, which is also very, very good! Wonderful caring doctors who are more and more into nutrition.
