have had crohns since i was 11 (now 21). Until i was 15 i spent my life in hospital being given false promises by doctors who in reality do not actually know much about this disease.
i was fortunate enough to have private medical insurance through my dads job and as a result saw the worlds best doctors for crohns disease.
the reality is that all they are doing is looking for the miracle cure which will make them millions. i tried every treatment they had on offer but none worked.
when our doctor suggested we used thalidomide that was the final straw. we left the doctors behind and met a nutritionist who literally saved my life.sadly i have not seen him since i was 19 but have continued to do ok without him
still have many of the symptons but have not missed a day off work for 3 years and have learnt to manage and live with the disease.
I WOULD SUGGEST FOR ANYONE DO NOT BLINDLY TRUST DOCTORS THEY ARE NOT ALWAYS RIGHT.
SEEK A NUTRITIONIST AND TRY THE NATURAL WAY AS THERE ARE NO NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS.ALOE ELITE HAS HELPED ME. I TAKE MANY VITIMINS EVERYDAY.TAKE CARE OF WHAT YOU EAT.
