If you're suffering from Crohn's disease, then you're living a nightmare! I know. I too suffered from this debilitating disease for 4 years - perhaps longer without my knowledge. Despite the seemingly endless claims of 'No cure', I proved them wrong. Today, I am totally Crohn's free and the doctors are amazed.
This is what I suggest:
1. Have a complete heavy metal test.
Normal blood tests can't detect heavy metals. Saliva and hair analysis can. It is now widely acknowledged that Crohn's disease can be caused by mercury toxicity.
2. Get rid of your mercury fillings.
The most common source of mercury poisoning is teeth fillings. See a holistic dentist and have them removed safely.
An experienced natural practitioner will put you on a detox program that will remove the mercury and any other problem toxins from your body, particularly your bowel.
4. Have a test for candida growth.
Many of us have too many sugary foods and drinks. These and a host of other yeast producing products can create a fungal environment in our bowels.
5. Have bifidus products.
Good quality bifidus taken daily in cold water, will make a huge difference to the functioning of your bowel. If your bowel slows down significantly, consider increasing the dosage of bifidus significantly. See your experienced naturopath for advice.
6. Have only soft foods until your bowel movements return to normal.
When your bowel is inflamed, avoid eating any foods that might irritate it. Soft foods will slide over it and provide healing nutrition.
7. Drink 8 glasses of Evian or Fiji water daily.
Water flushes the entire body of unwanted toxins. High quality bottled water such as Evian and Fiji, contain an extraordinarily high amount of beneficial minerals.
8. Exercise on a rebounder daily.
A fantastic all over toxin flusher, this will quickly and effectively get things moving in the right direction.
9. Go to sleep by 10pm every night.
Not only is sleep healing, but it is a time of relaxation. Both are essential for restoring the bowel to optimum health.
10. Get plenty of sunshine
Vitamin D benefits every part of our bodies. The safest and most beneficial times to go out, are early morning or afternoon.
