Natural Treatment for Chron’s Disease

April 18, 2019

Crohn’s disease may affect as many as 780,000 Americans.

Has your life been affected by Crohn’s disease? Are you in constant gastrointestinal pain? You may have tried everything from prescription medications to surgery, but you are still suffering.  Read on to find out something you can do naturally to help alleviate your symptoms.

What is Crohn’s Disease?

Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract. It was named after Dr. Burrill B. Crohn, who first described the disease in 1932. Crohn’s disease belongs to a group of conditions known as inflammatory bowel diseases. It most commonly affects the end of the small bowel (the ileum) and the beginning of the colon, but it may affect any part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

Symptoms of Crohn’s
  • Persistent diarrhea
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Urgent need to move bowels
  • Abdominal cramps and pain
  • Sensation of incomplete evacuation
  • Constipation (can lead to bowel obstruction)
  • Nausea
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Night sweats
  • Loss of normal menstrual cycle
  • Anemia
  • Eye redness or pain
  • Joint pain or soreness
  • Skin changes
What causes Crohn’s?

The cause of Crohn’s disease is not fully understood by conventional medicine. Some possible causes may be:

  • Autoimmune reaction
  • Hereditary
  • Genetics
  • Environmental factors
  • Smoking
  • High-fat diet

Diet and stress aggravate Crohn’s. Certain foods can trigger or worsen symptoms. It is best to avoid sugary foods, dairy, high-fat foods, non-absorbable sugars, insoluble fiber, alcohol, caffeinated drinks and spicy foods.

Conventional Solutions

Conventional doctors treat Crohn’s disease with prescription drugs to help control the inflammation, bowel rest and surgery. As you know, prescription drugs come with many unwanted side effects and surgery comes with risks. Bowel rest may include drinking only certain liquids or fasting.

How can you treat Crohn’s naturally?

Yeast overgrowth can cause inflammation in the GI tract. A number of gut bacteria and fungi have been identified as playing a role in inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s. Research demonstrates that dietary yeast can affect the activity of Crohn’s disease. When patients excluded yeast from their diet, their Crohn’s symptoms were lower than when they were eating yeast. (1) We have found that adopting a yeast-free eating program can be really beneficial for people with Crohn’s.

Vitamin D Deficiency and Chron’s

Research studies provide strong links between vitamin D deficiency and the genetics of Crohn disease. Findings provide a strong molecular basis for the contribution of vitamin D deficiency to the development of Crohn’s Disease. (2) Research also shows that low sunlight exposure, which can contribute to a vitamin D deficiency, is associated with an increased incidence of Crohn’s disease. (3)

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
