Ongoing irritation: Ulcerative colitis is inflammation of large intestine. It is an autoimmune condition, usually triggered by unhealthy lifestyle in genetically susceptible people. Avoiding grains, lentils, milk products, potatoes, peppers, tomatoes help heal the intestine by reducing inflammation. Probonox probitic, vit D3, eating meats, veggies help.
