In brief: Probiotics
First, are you sure you have uc? You may have underlying food allergies triggering this as well.
Use the a4m.Com "doc locator" function to find a local functional medicine physician to do further GI testing to evaluate. In the interim i suggest higher dose probiotics like "probiotic 225" from orthomolecular 1 pack daily for flares and florajen 1 daily for regular support and to prevent flares.
