Ulcerative Colitis Treatments/Medications?

What are some treatments for the colon disorder called Ulcerative Colitis (UC)? I know Fish Oil and Omega 3 is a good source but I at least need some more treatments given. If possible please list some helpful links

Ulcerative colitis is a disease identified by ulceration and inflammation of the inner lining of the colon and rectum. The inflammation usually begins in the rectum and lower (sigmoid) intestine and spreads upward to the entire colon that leads to diarrhea, severe pain in abdomen and gastrointestinal bleeding.
Using carrot juice, cabbage juice, green juices and herb teas is recommended to promote healing of the bowel lining. When eating solid food, chew thoroughly and do not drink liquids with meals. During a flare-up, avoid high roughage foods, which contain skins and seeds, especially popcorns. Avoid pure cooked vegetables until the condition clears up. Emphasize yellow fruits, cantaloupe, pears, watermelon, kelp, agar and cucumbers. Fruits with pectin, such as apples and pears seem especially beneficial. Eat soups, especially vegetable broths. Eat fruits at the end of a meal. White fish is an acceptable source of protein as are any soy foods such as tofu. After an inflammatory episode has passed, emphasizing complex carbohydrates with high-fiber contents has been shown to be quite beneficial.

$400??? Geez, medication has really gone up over the years, didn’t realize it was that much these days! For Ulcerative Colitis, I recommend trying out alternative medicine. There’s a product out there that helps with that condition called AloeElite – my cousin took it after she was diagnosed with UC and her symptoms are almost gone thanks to it. From what I know of it, it’s safe and even though it’s $159/bottle, they usually run specials so you can get them for much cheaper. I’ve provided some resource that may help you find what you are looking for, good luck!
