| | Natural or homemade remedies for Crohn's or IBS symptoms
I've had Crohn's for about 5 years, and have been put on various therapies, including steroid / Prednisone therapy, Remicade therapy (which I developed a severe allergy to), Humira therapy (which did not do anything to my benefit), as well as long-term therapies such as Asacol and Mercaptopurine/6-MP. I've had the most luck with the 6-MP therapy, but I still get severe flare-ups five or six times per year.
I recently became very interested in natural and home-based remedies, and I am looking for any information about what types of remedies are out there as well as info on using them with Crohn's symptoms.
Please share your stories, even if they seem like "old wives fables." I've been amazed at how natural/home treatments have helped other ailments of mine (ie. cystic acne, chronic back pain, etc.), and some of the simplest remedies provided the most relief. I'm also hoping any information posted here will help others who may be seeking the same ideas.
Thanks for your input!
