Crohn’s disease

Crohn’s Disease is medically defined as: “A chronic inflammatory bowel disease of unknown origin, usually affecting the ileum, the colon, or both structures. Diseased segments may be separated by normal segments.” Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 321 “Crohn’s disease is characterized by frequent attacks of diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, nausea, fever, chills, weakness, anorexia, and weight loss. Children with the disease often suffer retarded physical growth. The diagnosis of Crohn’s disease is based on clinical signs, x-ray studies using a contrast medium, and endoscopy. The disease is easily confused with ulcerative colitis, which is also an inflammatory bowel disease affecting the colon and rectum.” Ibid.

Anal fistulas are very common in cases of Crohn’s Disease. An anal fistula is: “An abnormal opening on the cutaneous surface near the anus, usually resulting from a local crypt abscess. Also called Fistula in ano.” Mosby’s supra.

Because Crohn’s Disease is known as ‘ileocolitis’, it is characterized by inflammation of the ileum section of the colon.

Causes and Risk Factors

Though Western medicine openly admits their ignorance as to what causes Chron’s disease, it is most likely caused by a constipated mind, poor diet and excessive lifestyle.

Because Crohn’s Disease deals with inflammation in the colon, it is a disease physically caused by MUCUS due to excess ACIDITY in the body, the colon in particular. All inflammation is caused by extreme acidity (acidosis), which is created by the breakdown and byproduct of meat, dairy products, refined grains refined starches, and a host of other things that have no business in the human body.

Symptoms

Crohn’s Disease is most commonly indicated by these symptoms:

  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • General weakness
  • Anorexia or weight loss

The diarrhea aspect of Crohn’s Disease is the body attempting to pass hardened fecal matter via process of liquefying the stools, a process that robs sodium from the body.

The abdominal pain aspect of Crohn’s Disease stems from old gas pockets in the colon opening up releasing gas, causing severe spasms. The body is simply attempting to heal itself, but of course to the Western human mind, healing is considered sickness or a problem and must be interfered with.

The fever aspect of Crohn’s Disease is the body raising its own heat level or temperature so as to effectuate healing via hyperthermia that induces sweating, which is very therapeutic.

The weakness aspect of Crohn’s Disease is indicated by the body’s attempt to heal itself. People don’t move around as much when they feel weak so many times the body induces a feeling of weakness to keep people steady and still so healing can effectively take place. The mind has a tendency to operate on its own and many people will convince themselves via the mind that instead of lying in bed all day to allow optimal healing, they instead should be up doing things, working, making some money, cleaning up around the house, etc.

The anorexia and weight loss aspect of Chrons Disease stems from necrosis, whereby the cells begin to attack the body by eating away at the body.

HEALING CROHN’S DISEASE NATURALLY

Herbs

Herbs can stimulate peristalsis and help tone, strengthen, nourish and repair the intestinal tract. Herbs that help remedy or prevent Crohn’s Disease include all cathartic and laxative herbs such as Senna Leaf/Pods, Cascara Sagrada, Aloe Vera Resin, Glucomannan, Buckthorn, Trifala, Bibitaki, Bilwa, and Ipecac Root.

Catalyst family herbs such as Cayenne, Ginger, Cloves, and Cinnamon are also helpful in cases of Crohn’s because they facilitate a fever; not breaking it, but working with it. They can also help to naturally break chills and counter nausea, especially Ginger.

Antispasmodic herbs are also beneficial for Crohn’s Disease. These herbs include Cramp Bark, Wild Yam, and Black Haw. They address and resolve painful spasms.

Nutritive herbs are also important in remedying Crohn’s Disease. A nutritive herb provides nutrition to the body. Nutritive herbs are usually rich in minerals, vitamins, B-vitamins, and amino acids (protein). Nutritive herbs include Moringa Seed, Irish Moss, Spirulina, Alfalfa, Chlorella, Blue Green algae, Suma, Dulse, Sheep Sorrell, Kelp, Barley Grass, and Wheat Grass.

These individual herbs help to counter anorexia and involuntary weight loss which are usually present in cases of Crohn’s Disease.

Carminative herbs are also recommended for Crohn’s Disease. These herbs soothe the digestive system and include Cardamom, Chamomile, Anise Seed, Fennel Seed, and Caraway Seed.

Crystals

Crystal elixir of Carnelian is very helpful in cases of Crohn’s Disease. No other crystal impacts the colon to the degree that Carnelian does. A crystal elixir is made by placing a crystal in distilled water for 24 hours (overnight, for the moon’s influence on the elixir). After 24 hours, the elixir can be drunk (1-4 ounces per day).

Sea salt

Because diarrhea is associated with Crohn’s Disease, sodium loss is inevitable as diarrhea causes sodium to be lost. The sodium can be replaced by drinking celery juice (4 ounces per day) and/or drinking a glass of warm water with sea salt (one-third teaspoon of sea salt).

Diet

People suffering from Crohn’s Disease should switch to a vegan diet balanced with raw foods. All meat and dairy products should be cut out of the diet. Refined starches and grains should be entirely avoided.

Enemas and Colonics

Enemas and colonics should not be performed during severe bouts of Crohn’s Disease, but nevertheless should be performed after recovering from Crohn’s Disease. Weekly enemas and monthly (every 3 months) colonics are a great preventive measure of Crohn’s Disease and we at Dherbs.Com highly recommend these effective modalities.

    Q: I've had Crohn's since 1989. Months later, I developed a vaginal fistula. Since then, I've had a partial colectomy of the left colon, hemicolectomy of the right colon, and I had a partial hysterectomy. During the same time they did an ileostomy. I wore it for 3 months. When they took it down, it did not repair the fistula. Some months later, I developed a vaginal cyst, and I began taking Lupron injections to reduce it. It reduced the cyst, but threw my body into menopause. Now I'm having problems with my sight, memory, and other menopausal symptons. Also since 1992, my breath began to smell, and when I use the bathroom, it smells awful. I want to be healed from Crohn's, but my main problem right now is, how I smell. I can't keep existing like this. I'm battling diarrhea, pain, anemia, fatigue, depression, gas, and bloating. I've asked my GI about detoxing, because I believe that's one thing that would make me feel better, but he says no. He doesn't know what to do about my breath, and neither do I anymore. What do you suggest?

    A:

    You should listen to how you feel and DETOX! Detoxing will help you, and your situation. The drugs have made you toxic! Here's what you need to do first and foremost, perform the Full Body Detox, followed by the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse, followed by the 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanse. While performing these cleanses, drink 1 cup of Female Health Tea daily, and read the "Mental Science Manual" and apply the principles.

    Q: While I know by experience that herbs can have a healing effect, You say that clearly, "Sarcoidosis affects the glands", the inner and outer skin, and the lymphatic system. Sarcoidosis is a degenerative disease, and is therefore due to improper diet. You don't mention at any stage that it is an auto immune disease. To say that diet alone can cause one's immune system to attack the body, and major organs (which you don't mention anywhere) seems very simplistic. I may be wrong, but I hope you are not just raising hopes for all the sufferers out there. My sister has sarcoidosis.

    A:

    Beloved, why would I want to in futile and falsely raise innocent people's hopes and create bad karma for myself? I'm not one of the unscrupulous Christian ministers who do such, Beloved. I'm a wise natural healer. I have no incentive in raising false hopes. Life is not joke nor is suffering! Sarcoidoisis is a PREVENTABLE and REVERSIBLE disease which means it is diet related. A disease is preventable because eating wrong foods can be prevented. A disease is reversible because poor diet is reversible. Research the medical term "degenerative disease" and you'll understand where I'm coming from. I'm not one to embrace auto-immune disease because when the body turns on itself that's not natural. The person did something to make their body attack itself. People invite disease, Ma'am via WRONG DIET, WRONG THOUGHTS, WRONG ACTIONS, etc. If she was born with sarcoidosis, she picked up in life, a life that she led pursuant to her own free will. I say again: YOU CAN heal from any disease! If you believe you can, you can. If you believe you can't, you can't! It IS that simple! Jesus (not that you may be a Christian, I'm just quoting) stated: If thou canst belive, all things are possible to him that believeth!

    Q: There seems to be a cure or a treatment for everything but kidney disease and trust me I have been looking since 1997 when I was diagnosed with focal glomerulosclerosis. I have been on dialysis for a year and a half now. My Dr told me that once your filters in your kidneys are damaged there is no way the can be replenished. That is what happened to me. The scare tissue in my kidney are so severe that they do not filter my blood properly. I have talked to other herbologist and doctors and the only thing they can recommend is transplant. I believe that God put everything we need to stay healthy on this planet. We just have to find what we need. I read on your web site that your herbs can cure kidney disease. I hope it can cure mine. What type of success have you had in getting patients off of dialysis and if you have how long did it take and what did they have to do?

    A:

    To help treat Kidney-Bladder failure/problems, detox your body with Full Body Cleanse. After the cleanse, your daily regimen should consist of Kidney-Bladder-Adrenal formula (3 capsules, 5 times per day) and the Dherbs Kidney Tea (1-2 cups per day). These formulas can help increase healing in your kidneys so that they can function properly.

    Q: I have been diagnosed with Pityriasis Rosea which is a skin disease. The dermatologist can't tell me what causes this disease and has prescribed a topical steroid. I don't believe in taking all types of drugs when they can't tell me what causes this disease. Can you recommend anything since I refuse to take the steroids? Thanks for your help!

    A:

    Rosacea is caused by parasites and is considered a form of acne. I suggest you first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX, then perfomr the PARASITE AND WORM CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, and follow this up with the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Use only good soaps like Kiss My Face and Grandpa Pine Tar soap. Use Bentonite Clay (available at health food stores) 2-3 times a week. Always apply OZ OIL to your face after washing and/or claying it. Buy a facial steamer and steam your face every day (c. 15-30 minutes).

    Q: Please tell me which products will help my 11 yr old son eliminate or aid in his healing of this horrible disease (Allergic Fungal Sinusitis). He was taking allergy shots once a week for a year. He is allergic to everything...grass, trees; dustmites, soy, wheat, dairy, eggs. He now drinks rice milk and I order food online at ener_g foods such as breads, cookies etc that are made without all the things he is allergic to. I want to boost his immune system to help fight this disease. He is on a strict diet and I would love you input on how to help him.

    A:

    Clearly he's toxic! Clean his body out and the problem will go away. Try CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Let him drink warm water and lemon juice (from fresh squeezed lemon) every day. Let him drink herbal tea of Mullein leaf and/or Eucalyptus. When he is bathing, drop in 6-8 drops of essential oil of Eucalyptus per bath and add 1 box of sea salt to every bath. Let him soak for 45 minutes or so. He can heal from this problem!

    Q: My husband has Sickle Cell Disease. What do you suggest for reversing his condition. Also, can any herbs be smoked? If the herbs are smoked, do they have the same healing effects compared to eating or drinking them?

    A:

    Please read our article "Sickle Cell Anemia and Crisis" on our site under "Articles." Everything you need to know is there, including herbs to take for the condition.

    Dherbs doesn't recommend the smoking of herbs. Some people smoke herbs, i.e. marijuana, hops, etc., but smoke has no place in the human body. Many people smoke marijuana and claim healing benefits. Strangely, they continue smoking marijuana after their so-called healing. I don't think marijuana heals because if it heals, why do people continue to smoke it? I think people just like the feeling of getting high.

    Q: You have products that have Kelp as the ingredient. I have Graves Disease which is a hyperthyroid disease. Could you recommend another product that does not have Kelp to help clean my system.

    A:

    Our Blood and Lymphatic Formula does not contain kelp. Most of our formulas do not contain kelp. However, natural and organic kelp will not harm you due to your thyroid condition. It is only unnatural, synthetic man-made kelp that would be a problem to you. Natural kelp may actually help you and your condition.
