Ulcerative Colitis is one of the conditions that fall under the Inflammatory Bowel Disease bracket.
I have a friend who suffered from Crohn’s Disease which is another disease that falls under the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Umbrella. Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease are both chronic diseases which, once you get, tend to mean you will be on medication to prevent a flare-up for the rest of your life.
Needless to say, this is not great! Especially as the medication required to treat or keep you in maintenance tends to come with a whole lot of side effects. My girlfriend decided to take matters into her own hands and get a whole lot of prayer about it and trust God to sort her out. Thankfully, in her case, even though she has chosen to take no more drugs, she has managed to remain symptom free.
Not every one is as daring as her though and not every one that stops the medication is going to be fortunate enough to remain healthy so this is definitely not an option I would ever recommend to anyone with Ulcerative Colitis!
