Hi, I am new so I hope I am following the rules for posting a question. I have had crohn's since 1984 and have managed my IBD with diet and alternative methods for the past 6 years  due to doctor approved methods  no longer work for me. I recently found out about LDN (low dose Naltrexone) and am wondering if there is anyone out there with Crohn's or Colitis who has tried this sucessfully? I hope the diet I am on continues to work but still would like to gather as much information as possible on alternative treatments. I have several questions and hope to find someone that is familiar with this. Thank you.

There are dozens of posts about diet and LDN here and on the ulcerative colitis forum. You cannot miss them if you scroll down a little.
Male/60 DX ulcerative colitis Feb08, or maybe Crohn's colitis.
No Meds, allergic to Mesalamine. Remission since Mar10. Psyllium seed mixed with VSL3 is very helpful. Food journal instead of SCD.

Lots of fruit & vegetables (but no plums, kale, or carrots), no soda, no gluten, no HFCS, no xylitol or sorbitol, no trans fat, no shellfish, few processed foods, no carrageenan.
Probiotics, fish oil, multivitamin, extra D3, K2, high gamma E, phos choline, magnesium, boswellia, curcumin, glutamine.

Hi Rick! Welcome to to Hw! I have never tried LDN yet but it is on my list of things to try eventually. There are many members that are on LDN and I am sure someone will be along soon but until then, maybe you can scroll through posts that Roni suggested and ask a few questions on the UC forum also.

Congrats on being able to manage your disease using natural methods. I do a little of everything but my ultimate goal is to one day be able to manage without pharmaceuticals.

Take care!
