anyone else on here have chrons?
going primal has my chrons under control, even though im totally off medication (my wife and i will be trying to have a child soon, and i was on methotrexcate = no trying until its out of my system 3 months) ...
anyone else notice how well this works with Chrons?
I don't have a diagnosed bowel disorder/disease, but I suspect I have one. I have had unexplained chronic joint pain for years, fatigue, bowel problems and a host of other random illnesses. I didn't really notice the severe bowel problems until I started the diet and then "cheated." I had a really bad colon attack (what I call it) after a weekend of careless eating/drinking.
I've found that anything fried, anything cooked in vegetable oil, anything spicy or acidic (tomato sauce) and things like that cause me problems. It's kind of a process of elimination thing. If I eat according to PB (with a few adjustments - limited nightshades, low acid foods, easy on the spice) I do much, much better! The key is sticking to it. While other people can get away with 80/20, I feel like because of digestion problems I have to be more like 95/5, if that makes sense.
Also, one of my doctors recommended drinking Aloe juice when you're having digestion/bowel issues. I've only done it a couple of times, but it seemed to help. She swears it saved her from having her appendix removed and also brought her back to life from food poisoning another time.
