I have had crohns for many years for the past 6 months I am struggling to work and am considering giving it away due to continue illness which includes chronic bone pain, extreme fatigue and diarrhea with bleeding, I take many medications which are causing side effects and I feel I can no longer work but I am worried about the financial side of this. Does any one have suggestions.

Help for Crohn's
by: Anonymous

Vitamin D3 deficiency is a major factor for Crohn's.
Try like myself taking the above dosage, but always
with a spoon of Flax or Fish oil, to optimize absorption. Vitamin D will give you energy. Eliminate sugars and replace with Honey
in everything! Honey is a mono-saccharides, and easily
digested by Crohn's afflicted bowels, therefore less
bacterial growth that causes inflammation.
Try also take 1/2 tspn of Manuka Honey, on empty stomach 1 hour before a meal. It heals any wound inside and outside the body!!! I tried it when I had
pain from Crohn's attack, and the pain was gone.($12 a small jar) but lasts for a long time.
SUGARS- IN ANY FORM, IS EXTREMELY HARMFUL TO THE
INFLAMED BOWELS OF CROHN'S SUFFERERS.
Try to avoid smoking, and coffee only once a day or every other day!
Instead of coffee, to be alert and awake, put a dash or two of CAYENNE PEPPER
into 1/2 cup of warm water, or into salads, soups, any dishes. It does
wonders! It also takes pain away!!!

You will not regret implementing the above suggestions, as you are getting
them from a Crohn's sufferer like yourself, who is mature in years, and with
experience, and who has tried everything.
I have many more helpful suggestions for emergency situations.

Check with your G.P. your thyroid level,
and hemoglobin level as well.
You might need Iron pill (better from vegetable
source), www.vitacost.com sells them cheaply - Item #CTL4026594. Take 3 a day with vitamin C - 500-1000 mg, for 3 months.

Crohn's & Working
by: JoAnnne

I was working and my job was working with my illness until the hurricane Rita hit Lake Charles LA in 2005. Me and my husband bought our first real brick home and moved out of our mobile home. Well make a long story short hurricane Rita took out 51% of our new home and my job found a way to let me go from my job. They told me that it was because lack of business, but it was because of my illness and I couldn't find a job because of my health. I found work, but illness stop me. I filled for SS disability in 2005 and was denied I am still fighting with attorney. But, for you get all your medical records everything and all the information you can get on crohn's and file for SS disabilitiy and medicaid for your medision, if they turn you down get a attorney and fight. Get on food stamps and see if you can get welfare and section 8 or housing. There a lot of programs out there just ask at all the places I just told you about. Some one will help you. The Mason or Shriners, VFW and Red Cross will give you information. Good Luck I will pray that you will have better luck than I have had. But I have been told they can only fight me 4 more months on my disability.
