Dear Dr. SerVaas:
This is a follow-up letter to the one I sent in 1999, informing you of my success in using an herbal combination for ulcerative colitis.
I remain free of any symptoms but continue a maintenance dosage of four capsules a day for a healthy digestive system.
I have not used any prescriptions since 1999.

"Because I have suffered with ulcerative colitis for over 15 years, I was very interested in the `Special Report' on IBD in the Jan./Feb. '94 issue of the Post. In September 1997 I found an herbal combination for my problem and began taking it along with Asacol. After a period of ten episode-free months, a colonoscopy showed no sign of ulcerative colitis, and my gastroenterologist was quite impressed."
She credits a product now called "Intestinal Soothe & Build," produced by Nature's Sunshine Products, Inc., for her good digestive health.
