    I was diagnosed with moderate UC 5 years ago. I had tried all the standard treatments i.e. Asacol, Canasa, Prednisone, etc. Nothing worked very well except the 6-mercaptopurine which seemed to help a little bit more.. I stopped traveling. Lost weight. Was in pain all the time. Then my doctor started me on the prescription strength probiotic Double Strength VSL. http://www.vsl3.com/
    The capsules didn't do much plus insurance wouldn't pay so I went to the double strength powder form which insurance did pay for. I began by putting it in applesauce or juice. Not much difference. I started mixing the VSL powder into Vit. fortified lactose free milk and drinking it twice a day. Wonder of wonders. My symptoms have all but disappeared! Is it the Vitamin D PLUS the VSL PLUS the 6 mp individually or in combination? I don't know. I just know it this combination worked amazingly for me. I'd say, try it and /or tweak it. Good luck everyone.
