Biljana wrote a story on the site a long while back, and she just wrote me this email I wanted to share with all of you. Here is her picture she submitted back when she wrote her story in 2012:
Her email to me is farther below(please make sure to read that!)
I would like to tell you what helped me recently with my colitis.
I found out that whenever I have a problem or stress I get the
symptoms back. Then a friend who is a GI surgeon told me about a
bacterium that causes bleeding and I connected it to my symptoms I
forgot the name) and that started me thinking.
went to a friend who had a Scio Bio-feedback machine and it found
tons of pathogens. I kill them with many things like wild oregano oil,
activated charcoal, propolis, garlic, diatomaceous earth, and similar,
but what I completely forgot and my friend who is a wholistic
nutritionist said that I HAVE to take probiotics my whole life. So I
figured I would be on the strongest ones I could find in a store and
be on it for 4 months.
I am taking New Roots Probiotic Recovery that has 120 billion live
active whole cells, and 20 strains. I am in my third month now. I
recently had a bad stressful situation and no blood, cramps, nothing…
She said that after that I need to switch to less potent probiotics.
I urge some caution with this one though as it has 7 dairy strains. I
do not consume dairy except for aged cheese. I am off dairy, gluten (I
sin here sometimes), but I noticed that all legumes cause bloating and
pain, and sometimes cabbage too. I cook bones for 7-8 hours, that one
helped a lot.
I wanted to share this with the people in the UC community. It took me
a long time to find this out.
Regards to all,
Here is the link on Amazon.com to the probiotic Biljana mentioned:

I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
