It is hard not to get angry at doctors - even specialists - who look right at you and say "It has nothing to do with what you eat." and "No one knows what causes UC."
Really, it has a lot to do with what we eat - or don't eat. What we eat either starves our microbiome or feeds it - the good bacteria or the bad bacterial.
Over the last year and a half I have learned SO much about how we need our microbes in our environment and how antibiotics are killing off our microbes. Sometimes antibiotics are necessary but we should be told to be consuming probiotic and prebiotic foods especially while on antibiotics.
Fermented vegetables, homemade yogurt, kefir, etc, all help feed our microbiome.
For those of you who suffering with UC, Crohns, or IBS and want to find a solution to end your suffering, a home fecal transplant may be the answer.
This video by Michael Hurst from www.fecaltransplant.org will show you the steps to doing a home FMT:
I recommend this site as well as http://thepowerofpoop.com to read how others have been cured by doing a home FMT by restoring the bacteria in their microbiome that antibiotics had killed off, creating dreadful colitis symptoms.
Just think how nice it will be to leave your house again and not have to know where every bathroom is!
