In brief: Depends

A complete and correct diagnosis of colitis, depending on the cause is best treated with proper medication and diet and close follow up with your doctor. But the first step is making the correct diagnosis.
Colitis is a general term meaning inflammation of the colon. There are numerous types and causes and different treatments, so get to a specialist.
