About Me: Female, 37, Syracuse, NY, member since Aug 2010
I have Crohn's colitis. Diagnosed in 2009 at the Mayo C. Up to that time, I had UC ever since I was a teen. 1st diagnosis was in 1997.
This current flare has been horrid. I can't seem to heal or get better. I am on the SCD diet, FINALLY 5mg of prednisone because of the help w/ Remicade (no longer on this med, looking for alternative safer treatments available)
I am looking for a Dr that will prescribe LDN. It works for A LOT of people with autoimmune diseases, but it's just not approved by FDA for AutoID at this time. Actually, it is approved by the FDA as an Orphan drug for diseases like Crohn's. I am taking a lot of supplements and plan to heal my body by listening to it and feeding it good things..... not toxic, like remicade. Seriously, so many factors contribute to our overall health (Yes... diet) and i'm already feeling better by scd diet and the supplements.
Protocol differs from person to person, but if you are willing to take a chance, put in effort and dedication to get well from your disease, you will! It's that simple.
If you are interested in curing yourself, send me a message... id be happy to share and converse with a like minded person.
Sorry the forum didn't come together. Just remember you are not alone. There are many of us out there but we really don't know how to express ourselves or better yet stay in denial for long bouts of time...
