LOL. He doesn't say to eat any old dirt. He says to take his probiotics pills which contain several helpful soil organisms.

Hi, I am teddybearweiser, I am a male.
I was diagnosed with crohns disease when i was admitted to the hospital
in 1992, in Jan of 1993 I was back in the hospital for surgery for my crohns. I had part of my right colon resectioned with ilecolonstomy.
 My GI doctor has me on Asacol, Dicyclomine,Imuran,Celebrex and Remicade. B-12 injection once a month.

I'm not sure this is what you are eluding to but people in third world countries eat inert things like dirt when they are iron deficient. I think the craving is called Pica. I personally crave the chewing on ice when I am anemic, also Pica.

Retired male in late 60's. Perforated Colon in 92. Diagnosed as Ulcerative Colitis in 93. Uncontrolled flareup in 97 dictated J-pouch surgery. 04 Capsule endoscopy diagnosed as Crohns not UC. Emergency surgery in 05 to remove lodged camera capsule. Biopsies positively diagnosed Crohns at that time. 12/06 Unsucessfully tried Naltrexone(LDN). 2/07 developed scleritis of the eye, tearing and detaching the retina. Treated with high doses of Prednisone. 6/07 Thought eye was healing and started taking Entocort counting on the residual (non-systemic portion) as treating the eye. Wrong. In October eye was not stabilized. 11/07 Started Remicade to try and reduce the ocular inflamation of the Scleritis since I had been requiring more and more Prednisone to keep the eye quiet. 12/07, retina tares and detaches again so it's still not working. Now blind in that eye. 1/08 now taking Remicade monthly with no real progress treating inflamed eye. Vision still <20/200. Inflamation starting to show up in good eye. I haven't given up yet, but it doesn't look promising.

you can buy clay on-line that has microbes in it. most people do it for the trace minerals. i have heard puratin's pride (?) sells a solid brand on the internet.

did you know your mcdonalds french fries contain clay? (not the same kind as i stated before though).

i am on the makers diet and i do use the primal defense probiotics from time to time (i change up every couple of months). i tolerate them fine. jordan rubin, the author of the maker's diet, strongly believes the homeostatic soil organisims (HSO's as he calls them) were instrumental in his getting well.

Kiera I am not Teddy, but I too take Lisinopril. I take it for High Blood Pressure. Its doesn't have to do with Crohns to my knowlede, I just have high blood pressure and it helps to lower it.
Been living with Crohn's Disease for 32 years.  Currently on Asacol, Prilosec 60 mg, Estrace, Prinivil, Diltiazem, Percoset prn for pain and Calcium.  Resections in 2002 and 2005.  Recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and doing tests to see if I have Inflammatory Arthritis or AS.
