I was diagnosed with Crohn's about 17 years ago. I'm currently experiencing a flare up and will be going back on pentasa again. I'm not the best patient and hate taking pills.
Recently, I've been taking probiotics to increase the good bacteria in my gut, hoping this will help. I mostly suffer from joint pain/stiffness and now it's turning to swelling.
While reading everyone's stories, I feel very fortunate that I've never had a surgery or extended hospital stay with the exception of when I was diagnosed.
I'm tired of putting chemicals in my body and am wondering how a buildup of meds in my system over the years is affecting my overall health. So I'm considering going the naturopathic way. One of these steps is an overall cleanse and detox.
Has anyone experienced this and if so, how did it work out?
