Thank you to everyone for posting...I have crohns and its so nice to find a site with common ground..sometimes i feel like i am the only person on the planet dealing with this "sh=t"..
My question......Anyone familliar with Colchicum autumnale as treatment.???
I am offing my meds because they are not working and these doctors just wanna keep trying other drugs too "SEE" if they will work while i am just getting sicker and sicker (my bowels are "fine" but my liver and pancrease are about to
So I am at the point where I believe the doctors are just shooting in the dark....they are not making us better THEY ARE MAKING US WORSE!!!!!........cOULD IT BE?...AM I CRAZY TO THINK THIS WAY??I have no faith in our medical system... but i have faith in healing this dis-ease any alternatives??
Just put a title on your thread.

It does take time for drugs to reach a therapudic level in the body (usually about 6 months), but if your body cannot handle the meantime of getting to the therapudic level. Then it is time to switch meds.
We all get to the point we are tired of being in pain and sick.

use natural anti-inflammatory supplements, bee propolis, omegas 3-6-9, vitamin A, vitamin C-Calcium ascorbate, chamomile tea, I also use a good probiotic daily and a fibre supplement daily as well and I've altered my diet, no more junk-food (fast-food, processed foods/beverages, animal fats, caffeine, refined sugar, artificial sweetners, instead I use Stevia or honey), has most definitely helped my symptoms, not 100% full remission because I have some complications with my IBD but it's better than when I was going 30+ times a day with tons of blood, mucus and lower back pain putting me in tears on a daily basis. I now go on average 5X/day which is a lot better than the 30+ I was going, and no more bleeding or pain.

Just know what works for some doesn't work for all and that often it is a combination of a few things that work better than just one supplement.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
