I use bee propolis and chamomile tea which are both natural anti-inflammatories and the bee propolis I use is 100% non-toxic and my GI told me to stick with it daily and indefinitely, it's been 5 yrs and I'm still doing well with it (BUT AVOID BEE PRODUCTS IF YOU'RE ALLERGIC TO BEES), also if you're pregnant or breastfeeding it should be avoided. BP is affordable (I buy it online from puritans pride) I take 2 500mg caps a day with no ill effects, it cut my BM's down in 1/2 when I was goin 30 times/day, stopped all my bleeding and lower back pain, cut my mucus, frequency down too. and for me it worked quickly, I started seeing results the next day, of course everyone is different but I heard about it from another crohnie who said it put him right into remission.
My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
