Not all of my clients respond this well-this fast. The 1st 30-45 days are primarily for establishing some basics. Although many of the symptoms will still be present they will be mostly less severe. The one symptom we can almost always gain complete control over—-even in as little as 7-10 days is diarrhea. That does not mean that they are healed in that short of a time. This allows them to regain some law and order while we roll up our sleeves and do the real healing.
Ulcerative Colitis can typically be completely healed in 4-6 months. By completely healed I mean self sufficiency. No need for special diets. No need for any nutritional supplements and no need for any maintenance. This especially means no need for prescription drugs to control symptoms.
I have a question for you. How will you ever know your true status if you are perpetually taking medications that mask the symptoms?

Hi Dr. Snow,
I am just over 30 days into the regimen you prescribed and am doing much better. My stools have been forming and I have been going 2-3 times a day for a couple weeks now. I haven’t had any bleeding for a couple weeks as well. The pain is almost completely gone, I get a mild stomach ache once in a while, but nothing like I was experiencing before. I do get a tight cramping pain in my lower abdomen right before I pass stool, although this isn’t every time, it does happen often.
I am also almost completely weened off of Prednisone. I will be done with it next week, and am weening off of Sulfazalazine, which should be finished in the next few weeks.
I am religiously following the protocol you gave me and I am also doing the 1 tsp of the fiber solution am and pm. Do you want me to continue exactly like I am? Let me know what you think of the progress, and if you want to make any adjustments/changes.
