The "makers diet" is a book that i recommend i have learned so much of dieting and what is in our american diet. Which is not the best of diets that anyone should consider. unless your goal is to die young.
Im sure you have noticed that your diet has to be strict and needs monitoring. Some doctors say that dieting has nothing to do with crohns flare ups. I completely disagree! Then you also have docs that say you need to have no fiber in your diet. But if thats the case how come the symptoms grow worse? This then makes us wounder whether or not docters een know much about crohns. Which they dont. The only thing that i will consider that they understand is how inflammation works on crohns. Other than that i think they just scratch there head.
Remi is a very harsh drug.... Im on remi also. Have been on it for a few years now. I cant say much about how this drug is that great. Because the few years have been rough for me. This year i have had two staph MRSA infections, chronic diarhea, fatigue, severe cramping, skin infections, yeast infections, joint stiffness, ummmm and so on. lol. Like i said the year has been tough. The beginning of the year was nice cause i was doing good with out many problems. Hence this log or post.
Ok so the years i have had crohnes what would i recommend.... Lets see....
I will recommend what i do to anyone that is sick. Your body is hurting because you are sick. (i know. dur, right?) But the things that cause hurt is inflammation, silent or non, For there to be inflammation, theres toxins. Toxins are bad ranging from parasites to fungal, etc. Your remi is great for the masking of the inflammation and can help you have a regular day. The best example i can give of this would be that placing gum over a whole in a leaky bridge. lol Eventually the gum bubble is going to pop! Once the gum pops then you have problems again, or maybe be worse. Then the docs will say ok we need to change medicine or maybe even have surgery depending on your severity.
But anywho. Enough about being negative. crohnes can be controlled, but then you have to consider how everyone is different. Your diet should consist of omega high diet fish and such. I would not recommend catfish or lobster etc. they are filters and basically are the garbage men of the ocean. I would try to figure out what veggies you can eat and start eating alot of veggies more so than anything. This is the natural way of cleansing your body. I would prefer for someone to just eat organic. This can be expensive but it is well worth it. I would not eat pig. Stick to lean meats. red meat i would only eat rarely. drink filtered water. wash your face off in the morning and before bed. just have good hygeine and clean your hands all the time. Try to go after soaps that are organic and wont strip the oils off of your skin but will cleanse your body. I would also try, of coarse after you did your research, to fast. alot of docs recommend it for us patients. it can give out system a break. And could even help you out. Dont forget your fruit either i would only eat berries though for right now unless the fruit you are eating is organic. frozen can be just as good if you cant get ahold of fresh.
Im sorry your struggling brother but i believe there are going to be more and more crohnes patients and maybe be even bigger than some of our biggest killers of diseases or even maybe cancer. America has a terrible diet regimen. If america does not do anything about this soon everyone will not have a working GI tract.
But i hope this helped this was the best i could do for just pulling it off the top of my head.
Fish oil (high intake and natural i have some links on this stuff)
hemp seed as a shake (chia pro)
multi low moderate levels of vits and minerals flinstones is good
God Bless bro and i hope this helps!
