I’m really sorry to hear, and my heart hurts for you and your daughter going through this. I know you just want to take away all her pain...
Regardless of what anyone says, be it that a doctor or someone who has Crohn’s Disease; everyone is an individual, and every person is affected differently. I firmly believe that what you ingest is clearly going to affect the disease.
Have you looked into whether your daughter may have Candida, c-difficile? A bacteria infection? Have you had her stool tested?
Is she currently taking any antifungals? Probiotics? Perhaps dairy free probiotics?
I have tried many different diets, and nothing I can say has truly been a perfect storm, but the blood type diet has been very complimentary.
I have gone to a naturopath, acupuncturist, biochemist, iridologist, holistic doctors and the like, and again nothing perfect, and if your daughter is fighting many different bacteria regardless of what natural remedies are given, they aren’t as strong or potent as medication, and may work but take longer.
I have experienced c-diff twice.
On my 3rd GI because the first 2 were against me trying to heal naturally. Not putting a bad name to western medications because it has helped me in acute times, although, I believe just as the body has an innate way of telling you there is something harming your body, I believe it has a natural way of healing as well...again in time...no quick fixes like we all hope and pray for that miracle.
This 3rd GI is the only one who actually tested for C-difficile, and said “I wonder if it’s been this all along”...
Believe me I was eating paleo and flared for a year and a half, and it wasn’t until I started feeling nauseous all throughout the day regardless if I ate or not, did I go to the emergency and learn I had c-difficile...
Prior to this new GI the previous would call me after seeing my inflammatory markers were high, and fax a RX of ciprofloxacin, and metronidazole...which ciprofloxacin is considered a black box drug, and should only be used in severe cases...she would never Examine my stool only ever my blood seldomly...and this all happened while on my second trial of loading doses of Remicade...
