If you’re reading this, you’re searching for the responses about Crohn’s disease. You were advised that there’s no real cause for this; hence, consequently, there’s absolutely no cure. The only alternative you’re left with is therapy with the potent pharmaceutical drugs.
Alternative Medicine Treatment For The Crohn’s Disease
Most probably you’re confused. You are scared of pain, bloody diarrhea, fatigue, chance of the colon removal, cancer, and unwanted effect of these drugs that you are taking. In the jungle of internet, million websites promise and promote miracle cure. The situation with Crohn’s disease is very complex. Even medical authorities in this field write”Seventy-five years later Crohn’s characterization as a special entity, we’re still in the dark”.
Let me discuss some thoughts about causes and potential non-drug treatments for this illness. Everything what I will tell you, is data from medical and demographic literature, practice of the physicians from different countries with Crohn’s disease. Yes, we don’t know what the true cause of the disease is, but some details can bring light to this issue.
All medical statistics reveal the rise of the autoimmune disorders including Crohn’s disease during the past 60 years mostly from the North America, Europe, New Zealand, and much less in Southeast Asia, South America. We can’t blame genes; they cannot alter in 60 years. Some scientists believe Crohn’s disorder as a disorder of the wealthy people and connect Crohn’s disorder with Westernization.
You were told that Crohn’s disease is a hereditary disorder, so you didn’t have an opportunity to escape that. The definitive role of genetics is just 15%. Personally, I believe in heredity of their life style when generation-by-generation individuals have Cesarean delivery, formula-only feeding, and eating unhealthy foods, drinking alcohol, smoking, using the same vaccination and infections, taking antibiotics, NSAID and working or living in the toxic environment, etc.
No wonder, heredity of their lifestyle is responsible for many ailments and medical conditions and books prove that. Therefore, 85percent of harmful environmental variables play the role in the development of autoimmune disorders, which increase for the past 60 years.
You were advised that Crohn’s disease is autoimmune malady once the immune system behaves like mad by attacking individual’s own tissue. Normally, immune system is intended to safeguard the human being from germs like harmful microorganisms, and poisonous substances.
There are 3 common disorders of the immune system. The immune system can be weak after viral, bacterial, or parasitic infections, chemotherapy, immunosuppressant drugs, radiation, stress, AIDS, heavy metals toxicity, low adrenals and thyroid, etc. Secondary, the immune system may work additional high. We can see it in many allergic diseases, chemical and food sensitivity, vaccinations, chronic infections, etc. All these factors can cause in predisposed persons the abnormal immune response.
Unfortunately, there aren’t any the specific tests for Crohn’s disease; therefore it requires to exclude other diagnoses, such as intestinal parasites and infections, diarrhea after antibiotics, Clostridium difficile diarrhea, celiac disease, lactose intolerance, exacerbation of irritable bowel syndrome-IBS, diverticulitis, side effects of NSAID, Candida-yeast overgrowth, small intestine bacterial overgrowth-SIBO, colon cancer and more.
Helping several years the patients using the Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease, I strongly feel that the solution to handle autoimmune diseases is to control simultaneously digestion, dysbiosis (Candida-yeast overgrowth, small intestine bacterial overgrowth-SIBO) and chronic body’s acidity.
The key of the healthy digestion is healthy pancreatic function and proper balance of the friendly intestinal flora. Sadly, beneficial intestinal flora of the contemporary men are diminished and changed. If the baby did not get moms friendly intestinal flora during the natural birth and mother’s milk or baby receives numerous courses of these antibiotics in the first year of life, the beneficial intestinal flora is replaced by yeast, harmful bacteria, and parasites.
These nasty invaders irritate and inflame the walls of the small intestine, create a porous, leaky gut, they ferment undigested foods, making a terrific number of toxins. This can cause massive strain on the immune system with its overwork that’s triggered by allergic reactions and allergic diseases. Allergy exists always in the Crohn’s disease; it is a major player in all autoimmune disorders.
Modern diet with unhealthy eating habits, consumption of those chemically altering,”dead” food products, sugars, white bread, bad fats, and oils, processed cow milk, can exhaust the pancreatic function. Pancreas must create more pancreatic digestive enzymes to digest”dead” foods with no natural digestive enzymes. Improperly digested food travels through the porous, leaky gut to the bloodstream causing further awful overwork for the immune system.
Furthermore, milk and wheat were released in the human food only 10,000 of years’ ago. From that time, digestive systems didn’t adapt well to lectins; proteins in grains and legumes (as an example, gluten) or casein (protein in the cow milk). Poorly digested lectins undergo the porous, leaky gut’s wall into the blood system, attach to the body cells, and mimic the wholesome cells. Confused immune system by attacking the lectins destroys the metabolic cells. Many scientists think it may be central mechanism to activate”crazy” immune response, particularly in the predisposed persons.
There are also some evidences which Crohn’s disease is infection, and Mycobacterium avium which causes cows’ tuberculosis can play a part in the growth of this Crohn’s disease.
Can the methods of this alternative medicine help?
The query arises. My response is”Yes” since these methods focus not only on competitive immune response and inflammation but also on potential causes of the disease, subsequences of this disease and treatments. Many of those methods are time-proved, scientific, and clinically established. Some are widely used by medical doctors in different countries. They are:
- Herbal formulas, herbal extracts and teas.
- Medical Hypnosis, Deep comfort, Custom self-hypnosis CD, etc.
- Strictly non lectins, anti Candida, independent and alkaline-forming diet.
- Acupuncture: Chinese body, Japanese scalp, Russian ear-lobe, Korean wrist-foot, cupping, electro acupuncture.
- Drinking healing mineral water prepared from the real Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt
Super breeds, bile-resistant probiotics.
- High quality and potency assortment of the nutritional supplements such as minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino and essential fatty acids, various nutritional supplements for immunity support, reducing pain and scaring, management Candida-yeast, parasites and bacterial overgrowth, recovery intestinal lining and precursors of these amino acids.
Some of these healing methods are practically unknown in the U.S. For instance, among those unidentified approaches is drinking healing mineral water for ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease. For over 500 hundred years, European doctors sent their patients with chronic diarrhea or bloody diarrhea into the little Czech town Karlovy Vary to consume healing mineral water in the thermal spring.
Understanding the mineral content of the water is a primary therapeutic ingredient, Czech medical doctors suggested producing the real Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt. By dissolving this salt in water, everybody can make healing mineral water in your home. By scientific research, Karlovy Vary healing mineral water
- Normalizes acid-alkaline equilibrium
- Improves that the use of pancreas and liver
- Increases level and quality of the digestive pancreatic enzymes
- Promotes that the rise of the friendly intestinal flora
- Heals damaged gut’s walls, reduces inflammation
- Restore the balance of the water, essential minerals and trace elements
Almost all patients with the ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease know about probiotics and maybe already take them. On the flip side, not too many individuals realize that combining probiotics with antibiotics, immunosuppressant’, and steroids, either does not work or can possess possible risk.
We can make the analogy of the gastrointestinal tract with garden. It is impossible or difficult to grow roses if the garden is full of the weeds, pests, rodents, compounds, and the soil is exhausted and drained. The roses by themselves need to be an acceptable quality, also. Nobody can improve the state of the garden without the support of qualified professional. Restoration of the friendly intestinal flora is critical, but it isn’t a quick fix and self-treatment.
By clinical studies, it’s impractical to acquire stable remission without restoring the normal function of the pancreatic gland. The low role of pancreas, low amount, and poor quality of the pancreatic digestive enzymes aggravates all autoimmune diseases.
Chronic bloody diarrhea affected humanity for millennia. Therefore, ancient physicians were confronted with this problem some time ago and gained expertise in treating chronic diarrhea primarily by curing foods, herbs, and acupuncture.
So, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are the outcomes of multi-factor interaction between genetic, immune-related, environmental, digestive, infectious and potential medical triggers. Accepting that, I don’t think in the panacea or wonder in this situation.
Only the hard work and collaboration between individual, his/her relatives, friends, PCP, and educated, licensed medical practitioners can bring the patient into the stable remission. Customized, concurrently accomplished mixture of natural, holistic, non-drug techniques of this alternative medicine can be quite beneficial for individuals with ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease.
The goal is to improve pancreatic function and complete digestion, restore the friendly intestinal flora and normalizing acid-base balance, modulate the immune response and inflammation, and replace deficiencies.
Rush doesn’t help. Abrupt discontinuance of drugs may result in rebound effect that may make things worse. Therefore, after we assist to accomplish the clinical remission, patient and his/her physician will decide about secure withdrawing from the medicine with after overlapping them by using more of the non-drug techniques.
