  • Hey..��‍♀️ I’m due to start iv infliximab in 2 weeks…my bowel is getting worse…had to go in to hosp over night as such a bad awful flare…ct scan showed more disease inflammation ��‍♀️ soo I’ve gotta do this infliximab absolutely terrified…& yeah I do have awfull OCD.. mental with the coronovirus as well as starting a brand new treatment I’m soooo scared…not allowed out of my garden until July!? Like as u know infliximab strips ur immunity!! ��…if any one knows anything about infliximab plz leave me a post…❤❤ thanqqq & lois ur looking well ���� are u on any meds for ur crohns?

  • Thanks for the informationi have never heard of tube feeding for crohns I have to take medicine but I will tell my friends.

  • Hey can you do a video on bloating pleaz��My bloating are so extreme and my body always remind me how « sick » I am #bloatingfromcrohn’s

  • I’ve struggle for years with severe stomach problems. I’ve had Tests done but they have always come back with no cure diagnosis. After tons of trips to the hospital and special diets I still have no real solution. They have labeled what I have as IBS but I find that I my symptoms line up more with crohns. What would you recommend as a next step? Do you think it’s possible I have been misdiagnosed?

  • I was dealing with crohns for 2 months before I was diagnosed after a bunch of blood tests and doctors appointments. I was diagnosed on my 13th birthday and i had to have 2 colonoscopies and remicade infusion. It helps a lot but sadly gave me psoriasis and skin problems all over. I have to remove special things from my diet that cause flare ups like corn potato anything fried peanuts oranges caffeine and chocolate. Anyone who has gotten medicine and still has gut problems I suggest going to a special doctor that puts bikes on your stomachs to test if what foods may irritate your gut. Also I have to take like 8 different supplements. One time my crohns got so bad and painful I Almost killed myself, I went to the bathroom at one point 17 times a day. So take this advice and know it gets better just good to know there’s other people out there who share this. Crohns is a living shithole

  • Here is the diet, best diet proven to give the best results in relapse prevention reported in the entire scientific litterature.
    And there is one even better, much healthier than the specific carbohydrate bandaid approach and arteries clogging diet full of very unhealthy animal products and oils;

    Even better if eating this diet and doing some water fasting at rest, faster and more complete gut healing.

  • I have just spent 5 days in hospital and have now been diagnosed with crohns disease. I have been in hospital four times over the last 2yrs and have now finally got a diagnosis. I dont really know how to feel about the diagnosis and never comment on videos but if anyone has any advice for anyone who has just been diagnosed I would be so so grateful.

  • Hey! I was just diagnosed with Crohn’s and your channel helped me a lot. I just wanted to know if maybe you could do a video where you show what food is best for you and worst for you even if I know everyone doesn’t react the same way:) Much love

  • I love this. I am using my days “productively” but that means having longer sleep ins, showering in the morning and just working from home while taking more time for me haha! and that is ok ��

  • How do you guys pay for the medication. My doctor says its $30,000 wth. Im not insured, but would insurance really cover that?:,(

  • Hi currently waiting for an operation for crohns disease im taking 6mg budesonide just getting over coronavirus it was hell and the diarrhoea really ramps up people drink plenty of fluids down your neck stay safe

  • I’m 17 and was just diagnosed with Crohn’s disease around 3 weeks ago. I had to go to the hospital for fluids because I was so sick and loss 10% of my body mass. Now I’m just starting to get back into remission. When I was diagnosed I didn’t know much about the disorder and didn’t know what it mean’t to have it, your videos really helped me with some of the questions I had and I just want to thank you for your channel!!

  • My friend got chrons when we were in year 4 so she started to self quarantine bet or school shut down. I was lonely for a whole week

  • I unfortunately have it. My mother, and her brother has it. My mother had multiple surgeries, first was removing part of her colon and giving her a colostomy bag. She had to take alot of prednisone which made her gain weight. But her health was good. After 8 years she had an experimental surgery called a J-pouch. Which looped her intestines. And then could use the bathroom as anyone else. But after just a few years it turn bad. It put a strain on her heart and cardiovascular system. Then when she was bed ridden she got bed soars. And then infections. And then she passed away. She would have lived longer if she has kept the colostomy bag. And now im have to go through the same things. R.I.P mom.

  • I don’t watch mainstream media, mainstream media is full of corona fear campaign. People should not be scared, fear = negative energy and it makes your immune system weak and you’ll get sick faster.

    They say that do not go out, but I say go take a walk in nature, people have to move.

    And do not believe everything mainstream media says.

  • Hey, I was diagnosed with Crohns when I was 12. I have to thank you so much. Your channel has helped me so much in the past couple months. I’m on an immunosuppressant and try to stay home as much as possible but it can be hard to not see friends. Your channel has kept my mind off of it.

  • Thank you so much for this video! I did a video about mental health during lockdown, I think its so important for us to keep the conversation going x

  • I wonder if celery juice could help with this, i know it s good for many chronic and so called autoimmune diseases, however idk if it could help chrones. Some ppl said it helped their Chrones and healed it, some say it could make kt worse bcs celery juice causes dihareea. Idk

  • I went to 11 diff drs and they didnt help me. I cured myself of crohns my case it was caused by fungus..Saccharomyces cerevisiae. I did ton of research but drs did one article i saw that 75% of patients have Saccharomyces cerevisiae… Since drs couldnt cure me i ordered a Dr to give me every test for ffungus bacteria..but she told me insurance would start asking questions,clearly doctors don’t give a fuck about patients.i asked if there is a rare disease Dr n sbe told me there r infectious disease drs.i didnt know that since nobody told me.i had a referral to a disease Dr..i told him i have Crohn’s.disease and i want you to find a bacteria or fungus in my body..guy ran few tests,week later i come back n said Chris in amazed but you were right you have Saccharomyces cerevisiae ( fungus in your blood) he told me but the bad news is i dont have drugs that will kill this type of will ruin your kidneys liver n other organs..i was excited n lil sad..sad because he didnt give me drugs. Why excited?? Because i knew what was causing my disease n was happy to know and thn i knew that my goal was to take care of myself live healthier life.. I also tested for vit d deficiency n i was in critical range..i started taking vit d3 50k about 40 pills. 13 pills A week.sometimes one wen i was like maybe its too much let’s back off this week, other weeks upto 3….and i was taking also diff brand d3 5k ius. Whole 4 months..both the 5k ius..and 50k ius..along with k7 for calcium as u should take it…i changed my diet for a week no bread no seeds no rice.and i felt better.waaaay better.but thn went back to eating junk food as i got depressed..later that year i went to my home country n my aunt( nurse. They worked together ) told me about this medical Dr who quit being a medical Dr n was into natural healing..she did blood work n i didnt have fungus in blood no more felt 40% better. But Still had pains shits…She suggested we do food intolerance testing..turns out I can’t eat any rice.seeds.pasta.flour products…..bananas n others.pretty much everything i was eating only daily i changed my diet 180 degrees.2 weeks later i had no pains at all..i stayed on the diet.for weeks and i stooped n discomfort would show. I learned my guts n stomach were so fucked up I had to b on this diet of foods that I tolerated n slowly loong months later i was introducing the foods i couldnt eat till.a point where i was back to normal..also the lady told me i have very weak acid in my stomach n i need to a adress it by drinking apple cider vinegar on empty stomach for long months..
    How did i get the fungus???? SEX. Next day i woke up with my stomach rummbling loud…i new i cought something 2010…i met a new gf n she wanted to raw week later she was shitting her brains out thn we stopped unprotected sex n she went back to normal ( she constantly tans and always took vit D ) I went std clininc n all good well because stds panels dont test for fungus.i noticed my fiecies werent solid n were loose. it took years for me to go from loose to diarrhea ( 15 times a day )to Crohn’s disease driving to brand new job n having a sharp pain n at that moment I knew my life was over n here i am years later feeling bad that i never wrote my story or made a video on YouTube..If you know better n your Dr who helps you but can’t cure you pls listen to your Dr who isnt curing you n don’t be an asshole to me giving me negative comments..

  • Sir Crohn’s disease m medicine life time ku khani parti h or khane se koi side effects tu ni hoty kya?
    Crohn’s ka Control medicine se ho ga yn khane peni se?

  • Well I have been living with this for like 5 years already, almost six years, and it’s really hard to find some of the medicines for it. Like I have this one medicine, it comes from another country so, it can only be found in ONE hospital in our location. Then in some days I can’t eat anything but soup with vegetables and meat. And my grandparents don’t even let me eat fried. When they let me eat fried they will think that I would want to eat it every day and not stop eating. Maybe I could have at least once or twice a month or something. And some days I have to lay in bed and just do nothing but sleep and go on my phone cause I can’t control the pain. And I feel like I am falling into depression cause of this. I really want to find a cure for this sickness. Who’s with me?

  • I feel so stupid… children are so remarkable.i would hate to think of the having chronic fatigue… maybe I see the world like Donald Trump I just cannot see a child having this disease..I was going to ask if this is the fake news..but I guess I should not dwell so negatively feeling some impending doom…that things are just not right I guess as long as it is manageable…why the tube before I feel like leaving?

  • I have that and i never got better with doctors help. It only got worse with medicines. I got better after i changed my eating habits and changed my diet completely. Now i’m almost 2 years crohn’s free. NOTHING symptoms and blood work is perfect. No medicines no pain anymore.

  • I was blessed with Ulcerative Colitis as a kid and have Crohn’s now. I’ve now passed 140 hospital admissions over the past 25 years..

  • Please. Never. Give up. That you. Can. An will be. Healed. From this.alwaful. Disease. Believe. Really. Believe. With. Your. Heart. An your. Sole. An it can truly. Be.

  • The group thing is soooo appropriate, I dropped a planner group for a all out non supportive issue I brought up and they turned on me I’m like why comment if you don’t agree whatever my health can’t handle it, you may agree but support is good

  • I have all u said but.. What is alternative medicine available in home to drinks… I hope u see my comments thanks and more power godbless

  • If you want to heal crohns then please drink celery juice (make it your self at home) as avoid gluten for a while and night shade plants. Keep your gut alkaline and try to stick to drinking celery juice every Morning about 3 glasses full

  • i’ve had colitis for 3 years and not stopped bleeding for 3 years. every day. i’ve had steroids, azathioprine, imfliximab, salofalk and had heehaw remission. I’ve now realised that Doctors know nothing. There’s an inbalance in the gut of microbiome bacteria and we need to correct that and vegan is not the answer people. She may be able to tolerate this and veggies DO NOT sort out your microbiome. these need to be fermented. please do not follow this advice if ur on a severe flare as veg is roughage and it will rip ur gut apart. Yes respect ur body and everyone is diff. she talks alot of sense about mindfulness etc but exercise, especially lifting, not running will help. Watching this vid has confirmed that she knows nothing about how the gut microbiome works. there are more nutrients in meat than a bucket of veg. she is right in one thing. research, research, research. Veganism is a dangerous diet for IBD and i implore everyone to take this with a pinch of salt. everyone is diff. carnivore diet is the way to go. i’m glad she’s in remission but she also says it may not work for you. mike heal ur gut guy knows his stuff re microbiome and goes in depth about it. she is one good success story but veganism is bad for ur gut.

  • Your gut always talking to you in the not so nice way. Avoid dairy, sugars, gluten. Limit red meat and avoid fiber like apple skins and seeds/nuts. Fried foods are bad and high fat foods are bad. Pretty much we can’t eat anything indulgent. Sulfasalazine was the best pill I ever took but my white blood cells were off. Cannabis helps tremendously. Chicken, rice, turkey, oatmeal, water,

  • I got a book on gut microbiome there is a lady that works with ppl who have this. It has definitely helped with my gut issues. “The microbiome solution” I think is the name, defo worth a read.

  • My boss is having this. He told me a few weeks ago how painful it was. He texted me this morning saying his daughter is taking him to hospital because he’s sweating again. I am really worried. I am praying that he’ll be OK. I am here to learn more about the chron’s. May God heal those who are having this.

  • So, I ended up going to the Cleveland clinics intestinal failure unit here the in states to get some answers. My Calprotectin fecal test came back abnormal at 168.1, the prep for my colonoscopy stopped working 12 hours in, so that procedure was a no go, and it looks like gastroparesis is a new dx being added. But I don’t have celiac disease!

  • I was diagnosed with this when i was 11 lol:(

    I HAVE H PYLORI (a bacterial infection of the stomach)


  • My younger brother started getting blood while passing stools. On getting the examination done by Dr., it was found that he is suffering from ulcerative colitis disease due to which he gets stomach pain during stools, for treatment of this disease. He started taking Planet Ayurveda’s Ulcerative Colitis Care Pack and after 6 months of use of that Ayurvedic pack my brother’s disease completely ended
