Hey What’s You Guys,
A huge big thanks to Nick from Western Australia.
Nick is a follower of the site and newsletter group and he shared an email with me that has two separate links to an very well put together documentary that in many ways is related to our disease – ulcerative colitis and much of what we discuss on this site. Of course if you are believer in the idea that diet plays a big part in our symptoms, this is going to make you feel even better.
But at the same time, if you are unsure of how diet may/may not play a role in UC, or if you want to simply learn more about some current research that is taking place, I’d highly recommend you watch the two videos that are on the links listed below. And who doesn’t like listening to Australians talking about their poop, inflammation, in that Aussie accent etc…:)
Here’s Nick’s email with the links he sent:
i am am member of your mailing list and a fellow UC sufferer. I just wanted to send you a link to TV show that just aired here in Australia called Catalyst. It is a science show produced by the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Commission). They recently did a 2 part series on Gut Bacteria and how it affects our health. They talked about it’s effect on diseases such as Asthma, Autism, MS and of course Ulcerative Colitis (mainly in the 2nd part).
I thought this show might be beneficial to your readers and you may want to share it with them. I found it very encouraging as it showed how our diet can effect the symptoms we have and also that there are potential new treatments including Fecal transplants and other medications that are in the pipeline (excuse the pun).
Here are the links to both episodes for you.
I hope you and your readers find it beneficial and encouraging too.

Big thanks again Nick, the info above is very much appreciated and best to you and your family,
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.
Leave a comment, ask a question, take advantage of our past experiences here, use the search boxes, they are your friends to0:)
Remember while using the site that:
UC symptoms and flare ups don’t last forever and no two people are the same.
You cool with that? good!
