I was diagnosed with crohns disease six years ago at age 54.  Have been terribly ill and spent a lot of money on trying different treatments both mainstream and alternate, nothing seemed to work for any length of time.  However I have now been taking Low Dose Naltrexone for seven months 4.5mg made up by a compounding chemist and have never felt better I also take a few supplements as well as Keifer (1/2 cup per day) I feel I now have beaten the problem.

Congrats on your improvements! Several people here have reported favorably on LDN. There have also been a couple that had some problems, but it's a bit hard to figure out what is different for the ones that have problems. There may be other influences that can mess it up - like Candida for example.

What kind of keifer are you talking about? Coconut kefir? Yogurt? Fermented veggies?  I just invested in my very first yogurt maker and am excited at the prospect of having my daughter eat something so healthy and full of probiotic goodness. I have tried making coconut kefir in the past...lots of work, special ordering young green coconuts, smashing them, draining them, fermenting the liquid, etc.  Great stuff apparently, but nobody could get past the sour taste of it.
