Ulcerative colitis
Dear CyberDoc, I see there is an article on this condition but in afrikaans, please help, I am english and need to know specifics. My brother-in-law has ulcerative colitis in a bad condition - what causes this and apart from medication, what can he do "naturally" to counteract or correct this condition - also, if neglected or not treated correctly, could this turn into cancer??

much appreciate your answer,
regards Lynette, Namibia

Lynette, I helped set up a site on UC. Have a look at it at and let me know if you have more questions. And yes, it is in English. :-)
