i'd rather feel like **** than be full of ****
a lot of the exotic juices (ie noni, gogi, mangosteen, acai) are a little more than a gimmick cos of the manufacturing process destroying all the good stuff and the prolonged shelf life/travel time to get to us. plus they are made from concentrate, not 100% juice. they may have some benefit, but i dont believe they deliver on their promise. if you want to try the juice route, get a juicer. or if you dont like that idea, the only one that i know of that people say they feel a clinical response to is the monavie drink. but the people i know that say it helps them all have RA, not crohns. and they eat like crap which most of society does and i believe that if you all of a sudden dose your body with a ton of anti oxidants (like monavie) and still eat like crap, you will/should elicit a positive response. now please dont take this a guarantee or an endorsement of this product.
otherwise try diet - go gluten free or try the scd or makers diet. or explain to your doc how you think remicade isnt working and you want a new drug (props to huey lewis - oh man, surprised myself how i worked that one in and i didnt even notice it too until i typed it).
dietary stuff is individual trial and error, but hopefully i've provided you with some leads to investigate and experiment with. best of luck!!!
