Hi everyone,
I found a really good site in which a guy explains how he cured his crohns and is the website

Be sure to check out the IBD Improvment document..its a life a great resource

I myself am have been diagnosed with uc since january 2008, i'm about to start the scd diet, right now i'm on pentasa (8 tablets a day), fish oils(pharmaceutical grade) and L-glutamine(5000mg/day)
I still have symtoms and am trying to find ways to attain remission. I've tried imuran but it didn't work for me.

Hope this website helps!

here are some other good websites

I just wanna put it out there that there is NO cure for Crohns. You can however go into remission but the disease is ALWAYS there, although inactive it can come back at any point.
Dianogsed with Crohns: At 16 years old. 22 years old now.
Surgeries:2 Bowel Resections, Gallbladder Removed.
Current Meds: Imuran 50mg, Vitamin B12 (injection), D, and C tablets. Fish Oil Tablets, Cats Claw, Slippery Elm, and Reishi.

I agree with MAG102886, there is no cure for Crohns. Remission maybe, but no cure.

If we knew how to attain remission, none of us would be on this forum.  Unfortunately, no two people are alike.  What works for you, may or may not work for me.  It seems to be all trial and error.  I've also noticed that each time I come out of remission, I have some new symptom to contend with.  It's a life-long process I guess.

Crohn's Disease. 
Diagnosed 13+ years ago. 
Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread.  No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum. 
Current Medications for the Crohns:  Humera 40mg injections every other week, Imuran 150mg, 3xday, Hyomax, Welchol 625mg, Flagyl 250mg, 3xday, Calcium, Acidophilus & Potassium
Previous Medications I've been on:  Asocal, Pentasa, Cipro, Prednisone & Entocort

You really need to determine what causes you to feel crappy. Once you determine your triggers, it is much easier to feel much better. This is, of course, easier said than done.

A fairly successful method is the use of an enteral diet - the Brits use Modulen, but I haven't found an exact match in North America. It involves being fed by a gastric tube (or some rare few can tolerate drinking the stuff) for a couple of weeks. The rate of relapse is high though - but there are better results if food sensitivities are tested for and eliminated from the diet. The "elimination" type diet has a success rate at maintaining remission that is better than long term steroids. Unfortunately, GI's in North America don't seem to want to do that for some reason.

Looks like he is just advocating the SCD, but its hard to tell. Its a very busy and confusing site. And of course he is asking for donations.
Diagnosed with Crohn's in early 2007.  Several peri-rectal abscesses and two fistulae with setons.  Allergic to Remicade and Humira.  Currently on 6MP, and vitamins D and B-12.
