Has anyone used Isagenix for Crohn's disease?  I'm in remission and I'm not sure if using this supplement is safe. It's not FDA approved.  Thanks!
Diagnosed with CD in June, 2006.  Had ileocecal resection on 12/18/06.  Off meds.  Trying to get pregnant.

I've recently heard about Isagenix (ran into my x-brother -in-law who knows the guy that "created" it) but from what I can tell it's really just another detoxification product and it seems very pricey...I'm sure it contains a few different ingredients to differenciate it from the others out there, as I'm sure they all do. But I've not tried it nor any other kind of detox product.

A woman I work with and her family sell this stuff.  They are really trying to get everyone to try it.  She did it and lost about 10 pounds.  She looked just awful while she was doing it - worn out, tired and old.  Now a month later, she has gained the weight back.  It is a detox program that costs about $300.00 per month.  You basically starve yourself and drink these shakes that both look and smell terrible.

With that description potatoqwn it sure doesn't sound like it's worth it eh...I can save that kind of money and not even feel as bad as the lady you described...people really need to be careful, it's probably why I've never done a detox program/system, I don't want to risk making things worse with having IBD.

FYI-Isagenix is a food replacement program. Food is never approved by the FDA only drugs are approved by them.
