Overall Treatment Progress

This is my entire treatment process to date for my ulcerative colitis.

I am not sure if “Indigo naturalis” is effective for other people as well, and I cannot guarantee its effectiveness in any way.

2012.02 Skipped breakfast (or plain yogurt only) to rest the gastrointestinal tract and prevent metabolic syndrome.

2012.03 Weight dropped about 5 kg from the peak, stools were taken once a day, and complete remission was maintained.
