Yes, and I'm glad you're seriously considering starting an exercise regime...it's known that regular exercise has many benefits, it helps the bowels function properly, not to mention the extraintestinal manifestations that we can be prone to getting because of crohn's, exercise is beneficial for those things as well, like osteo, arthritis, joint/muscle issues, weight bearing exercises aid with those things slowing them down (and the aging process as well which tends to highten those things let alone as extraintestinal manifestations of crohns.
Start out light and work into a more challanging routine giving your body time to adjust and adjust it to how you're feeling CD wise...once you get into the swing of things you'll likely notice you have more energy and sleep like a baby too.
There are many forms of yoga, there's pilates or simple cardio along with lifting weights, anything is better than nothing at all. I started exercising during a bad flare and I managed, of course I have everything at home so stopping for bathroom trips was no biggie for me...and I definitely credit exercising regularly to my overall improvements.
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
