Upenn Crohn's Disease Study

University of Pennsylvania Research Study:

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania are looking for participants specifically with a diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease to participate in a research study. This study hopes to test the effectiveness of a Self-Help Treatment Workbook for Stress Management that may help you manage the impact of symptoms associated with Crohn’s Disease, especially if you also have co-morbid Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). There is no cost for participation, and no travel required. You must be at least 18 years of age, and not currently pregnant.

After going in and out of doctors surgeries with stomach problems at 3 months old, to having my first really serious bleeding attack at 12 years of age, followed by 28 years of medications, bowel removal operations, bowel re-sections and the constant threat of a colostomy bag or colon cancer, I can state today that I no longer have Crohn's and haven't since early June 2000.

I am now working with an IBD and mucosal specialist at the University of Tasmania, in order to provide an alternative way of looking at this and other gastrointestinal diseases.

For the past 13 years, I have been self-studying neuro biology, neuro plasticity and cell biology, in order to explain to others what the changes were that occurred with me.

During this time, I have written many emails to other sufferers, sharing my thoughts and understandings about this debilitating disease and have had some great results.

Last year, I decided that I wanted to share more to more people and wrote a book, which I finally finished two months ago and have only presently got it up on Amazon as an ebook. With this, I hope to enlighten more people who suffer, from anything, how much the mind has an effect on the body.

Before you dismiss me and what I want to share, check out my youtube channel, which is where I share most of what's in my book anyway.

This is not about selling. This is about a 54 year old, who suffered for 40 years, her whole childhood and beyond, from Crohn's and then in 2000, in the middle of an acute bleeding attack, literally dropped it and in only 7 days, avoiding the booked surgery and who wants to help others.

I no longer own that name anymore. A Crohn's disease sufferer.

I am still answering emails to anyone who writes to me personally at info@kitcampbell.com

I wish you all the best in your individual journeys.

And to those institutions that wish to do 'studies', please be doing so to help others without pushing your drugs and selling your medications.
