Yup, heard about it a few yrs ago, don't know of anyone here that's tried it.


:)
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

I have never heard of it used for Crohn's disease but if I ever needed it for the purpose it is usually prescribed I would use the Crohn's disease as my excuse now.

I have used it but not to control CD smilewinkgrin
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

i would agree with the benefit from increased circulation and would place it in the realm of having a dilator type medicine to send blood to a strictured area. in theory.

Well if you think about it, every RX used for IBD is actually a cross-over drug that was initially designed for some other health issue than IBD...there is no actual RX med out their specifically for IBD.

I am curious to find if any one has been on it for original use and then had relief of CD symptoms. I found the info and thought some one here might know something about it.

I am not sure that my boyfriend could be trusted with it in the house, male curiosity and all...

Jesse's girl, there have probably been people that found the benefit for their CD without originally being prescribed for that but you will never get them to admit it. I love the comment about your boyfriend not being trusted, too funny. This is a very uplifting medication. Sorry

I've recently read of a NIH sponsored clinical tiral for a statin for COPD. Simvatat? I think was the drug mentioned. The theory is that the statins have anti-inflammatory properties and the simvastat or whatever the name is is one off patent and thus has generics avaiable making it economcally feasible for a clinical trial.
My computer says I need to upgrade my brain to be compatible with its new software.
