I went to a new family doctor today that practices integrative medicine. She wrote me a prescription for Transdermal LDN, which is great, that was my purpose of the new doctor. But what I really liked about her is she gave me some suggestions on things to incorporate into my diet that would be good for my Crohn's without taking so many supplements.
She said I should be getting as much as 4000 mg of Omega's for the inflammation but she doesn't like Fish Oil and said to get the 4000 that fish oil could cause me some D, which we want to avoid. She uses Chia seeds. She said it is a great source of Omegas and would also serve the purpose of my metamucil that it gels up in water the same and a lot of people find it soothing to the bowel. It is also a good source of fiber, calcium and magnesium, which is good for me!
A regular serving is 1 Tablespoon, I am starting at 1 teaspoon to make sure I tolerate it and then working up.
The way they gel up she said she uses it in a lot of recipes. Like when she makes muffins instead of using an egg she uses the Chia seeds in water and lets it gel then adds it to the recipe!
Anyone here eat these? What do you think? Any problems?
