Ulcerative ColitisI have a friend who is suffering from ulcerative colitis for a one year now. She has been on prednisone for a 7 months. She got better with steroid but it has started again and doctor has suggested a surgery. Is there a Cure for Ulcerative Colitis in Homeopathy?
Can someone help out please?

A fairly rare condition in which lining of rectum and colon become progressively ulcerated, causing periodic attacks of left-sided Abdominal pain, Diarrhoea, mucus and blod in faeces, and in severe cases Fever and Nausea. Complications include Anaemia, as ulcers bleed, and Septicaemia, as toxins from ulcers get into bloodstream; risk of developing cancer of the colon or rectum - see Cancer is slight. Cause is not known, but condition can be aggravated by broad spectrum antibiotics. Diagnosis is by barium enema and endoscopy of the rectum and lower colon. Conventionally treated by steroids; in severe cases steroids and nutrients may have to be given intravenously to rest colon and allow it to heal; colostomy, or surgical removal of affected part of colon, is a last resort.
After a first attack, constitutional homeopathic treatment is recommended.
Specific remedies to be given every 2 hours for up to 10 doses during acute attack while constitutional treatment is being sought:
- Hot stools which smell offensive and have blood and mucus in them, cutting pains on passing them, abdominal pain not relieved by passing stools -Mercurius corr. 30c
- Person chilly, restless, and anxious, burning pain in abdomen accompanied by vomiting, symptoms worse after midnight, wanting warm drinks and sipping them at frequent intervals- Arsenicum 30c
- Blood in stools, passing stools relieves pain but anus feels wide open afterwards- Phosphorous 30c
Further attacks may be prevented by changing to a high-fibre diet and reducing intake of milk and dairy products. Be very wary of antibiotics; if you have a bacterial infection and consult your GP, remind him or her that you have a history of ulcerative colitis. Stop smoking.
This is what says Dr. lockie in his book. He has a site where you can find a lot of information regarding different illnesses. the site is:

My friend who wassuffering from UC is feeling much better. They didn't stop allopathic medicine. They consulted a local homeopath and depending on her syptoms , she was given Mercurious Sol. 200 once a day for one week. Improvements were seen in 2 weeks when there weer no blood in stools. It was later followed up with Aloe.
However, we did lots of research and food was an important factor.
You should avoid milk, flour based products, sugar and fiber. Avoid food with high starch.
Drink lots of freshly squeezed apple juice, eat bananas, chick breast and fish. Apple cidar with help the linning of intestine.
All the best!
