I just found this forum so I have a lot of reading to do but I just wanted to ask if anyone would have any good advice or suggestions and help us.
My mum has been diagnosed with Crohn's Disease few years back and she already had 2 surgeries. The inflammations is in intestines and digestive tract.
The first was the worst where a big amounts of her intestines have been removed. The second was just cleaning the accretions from the intestines.
She is a very strong woman and she recovered very well. Apart from the few attacks she has (2 a month in average) she is doing very well as far as the disease is concerned.
However, she has other diagnoses which I feel in connection with the disease are just the worst for her.
She has high blood pressure and get these hot flashes, excessive sweating and she doesn't sleep at all. She has bad reaction to the Crohns medicine, she developt psoriasis recently and has cysts around her uterus and ulcer as well.
She is very bad with handling stress and is constantly sad, anxious, upset or angry about something. I can't get her to stop thinking about the bad in our lifes and just concentrate on what’s really important.
I'm looking for some alternative medicine what has proven for someone already to help. Especially for the excessive sweating, hot flashes and insomnia. Something that won't affect the disease and very well digested. I tried homeopathics but now I started looking into alternative medicine and Chinese medicine.
I would really appreciate if someone would give me advice where to start and what really worked well for them.
Thanks very much
