There is, in fact, a cure for ulcerative colitis specifically, but you may not like the answer, it is surgery to remove the entire large intestine. However, for some, depending on the severity, this can be a life changer. There are plenty of medications available to suppress ulcerative colitis 'flare ups', your mom should see her gastroenterologist to discuss this further.
