After running this blog for about 7 months now, I have become aware that some individuals with Crohn’s or Colitis may not fully heal by just adding juicing daily and switching their diet up. The one difference between these individuals and myself is that I did a cleansing program a month before to kill off harmful bacteria, candida, fungi, and other pathogens while leaving behind the helpful flora.
How did I do that without taking an antibiotic?? I took oil of oregano pills that were suggested from my alternative therapy doctor. The real name was Candibactin AR from Metagenics. Now you do not need to get this specific one, but try to find one that is pure or has testing data to back it up. I also took a bunch of other intestinal cleaners in addition to this and you can find that on a past blog article.
This supplement is a natural antibiotic and doesn’t kill everything in your gi tract like your typical antibiotic. It only seeks out the harmful overgrowth and leaves the beneficial bacteria alone.
Now that you have killed the harmful bacteria that is causing the imbalance and offsetting your immune system, you then add juicing to flush the body with prebiotics, vitamins, phytonutrients, enzymes and essential healing oils.
It is certainly worth looking into and makes a lot of sense when you think about it.
Processed food/drinks–>creates imbalance–>overgrowth of harmful bacteria–>immune system attacks everything–>inflammation from the attack–>good bacteria over-taken–>immune system keeps attacking = endless cycle.
