The Cause of Ulcerative Colitis is due to sulfate reducing bacteria which creates hydrogen sulfide. At higher concentrations, it destroys the tissues. The environment needed for growth is a pH of 7 or below, but at pH above 8, the bacteria is suppressed. To neutralize the hydrogen sulfide requires zinc oxide and zinc supplements, to increase the alkalinity of the intestinal tract requires magnesium hydroxide (milk of magnesia), but blood is required to be more alkalize.

Mouth ulcers are based on the same principal. They also tend to be sensitive to high salts enviroment. Foods high in sulfur and sulfates creates growth. Sodium citrate, baking soda, are helpful. Nitrates rich foods are helpful as they are antagonistic to sulfates rich foods, Most irritation aspects of the hydrogen sulfide should be reduced greatly with the zinc oxide and they can be taken with a bath. Low oxygen environment makes them favorable to growth. Magnesium are also helpful in reducing certain opportunistic bacteria such as the staphyloccus as they also destroy tissues through flesh eating action. Low sulfate food might be helpful.

When foods are improperly digested, sulfur rich foods become a food source for bacteria to grow on and as a result, creates hydrogen sulfide, which can be reduce by taking humic acid, 1/ 4 teaspoon once a week or taken regularly until the ulcerative colitis heals. Sometimes ammonia in urine is an indication of improper digestion and the fact of adding humic acid reduces that too, and hence the value of using humic acids added to the water necessary to reduce cloudy urine and ammonia smelling urine which indicates improper digestion of product. In fact Texas A&M University found ammonia in animal wastes was reduced by 64% as well as reduction of sulfur rich foods such as corn and straw in hogs. It is this that cause the ulcerative colitis where Hydrogen sulfide destroys the delicate tissues of the stomach lining. The color of urine was also reduce and more colorless and less odor. Vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin Bs (in particular vitamin B5 and the need to lower some phosphorous diets too.

In general, the remedy I would likely to concentrate on is 1/16 teaspoon of zinc oxide plus 1/2 teaspoon of milk of magnesia plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1 glass of water taken twice a day. Some immediate relief of ulcerative colitis should be experienced. The dose is not a perfect one, but it seems twice a day, once in the morning and once before bedtime is helpful. If the remedy causes somewhat of a diarrhea or laxative effect, then I would likely reduce the milk of magnesium and baking soda by 1/2. I am have a good feedback on this one, although there simply is not enough feedback I would like to receive from this remedy. I believe the remedy should be taken only 4 days out of a week should be generally be sufficient.

As always, some changes in diets especially reduction in acid forming foods (bread, meats, pizza, cheese, etc) and most of all no oily and fatty food especially no sugar. Otherwise it would worsen the condition. Artificial sweeteners are acid forming just the same and a sea salt should be replaced instead of the use of common table salt as common table salt is too acid for people with ulcerative colitis.
