I am a strong proponent of LDN because it put me in remission, it's cheap (around $30-50 per month), and has virtually no side effects.
There a post on it on the UC Resources page that explains it, with links too.
I found LDN by accident whilst doing research.
The traditional meds did nothing for me, and then I became intolerant of the mesalamines.
3 days after I started taking LDN, my bleeding was dramatically decreased, and within 7 days of being on LDN it stopped completely.
I have been in remission ever since.
BTW, there have been 2 published studies that have shown high remissions rates in Crohn's patients. Both studies were done by Dr. Jill Smith of Penn State. You can google the studies.
Rx meds didn't help me. But 4.5 mg LDN +Paleo diet +supplements=REMISSION.Protein shakes w/almond milk,Maca powder,L-Glutamine,D-Ribose,chia seeds.VSL#3,K2,VIt. D3,slippery elm bark powder.For more info,my protocol is the 11th post at this link: https://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=38&m=1666318
