My Natural Methods to Treat Crohn’s


It has been 8+ years now since diagnosis and I am still learning and experimenting.  I have been juicing fruits, veggies and herbs/super foods for just over 3 years straight now. My overall goal is to keep this disease from progressing and damaging my gi tract further. Up to 70% of those with Crohn’s will require surgery at some point.  I still take my Lialda medication as prescribed in addition to my natural treatments.

As I continue to include these natural treatments, I notice that I can handle a large variety of foods that I could never before.  My gi tract is not wearing itself away as in the first 2 years.  You can visually see this by looking in the toilet, which is important for anyone to do.

With that said, I practice a lot of natural treatments to get to this point.  I do this to an extent that I might be unique or thinking far differently from others with some of them.

  • The first thing is to learn about what to look out for on a nutrition label.  I am 100% convinced that certain harmful ingredients within food is harming the balance of flora.  This then causes your immune system to attack itself and to cause more imbalance.
  • I try to drink as much juice during the week as possible.  Try for 12-24oz of juice per day.  Yes this might be a lot, but surgery/doctors are expensive.
  • Try a 2-3 day Gi rest! The idea of this is to actually give your gi system a break from digesting and moving food.  This is where you only drink juice or smoothies for all meals.  I do this once a week on Sunday!
  • When all cleared out, I replace with strong probiotics and a potent green juice.  Let it all sit in your gut and repopulate/heal.

Repopulate GI Green Juice Recipe

Greens

  • 1 Bunch of Mint
  • 1 Bunch of Cilantro
  • 1 Bunch of Parsley
  • 2-3 cups of Kale

  • 2 apples
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 3-4 clementines

Super Foods+Probiotics

I hope you all enjoy your Easter Holiday and really take the time to look into this natural approach.  There are way too many people on Social Media that are having a very hard time with just the medical approach.  Some of the above needs to be added in my opinion.  Take care!! 🙂
