Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel condition located in the lining of the digestive tract. It causes severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, and malnutrition. The inflammation caused by Crohn’s disease can result in the prescribing of powerful steroids that are dangerous to long-term health.
The condition affects your digestive lining’s immune function, resulting in lowered vitality. It is also a progressive condition which gets worse over time. There exists a balance in the pre-biotic and pro-biotic flora in a healthy gut. Because of poor food combining, too many sugars, additives, colorings and chemicals, these healthy flora are lost, creating an ideal inflammatory environment. This environment is often referred to as Dysbiosis, and is responsible for the alarming increase in the incidence of Irritable Bowel Disease in the population.
Because our food supply is being adulterated both chemically and genetically, parasites can gain entry to the gut, where they cause inflammation and bloating to occur. Because the small intestine plays an important role in immunity, these people are repeatedly getting sick all the time and have often had appendix or gallbladder surgery.
The Alimentary Canal
The Inflammation spreads into the deep layers of the bowel tissue. The pain affects appetite, creates foul smelling gas and uncomfortable bloating. Life-threatening complications such as bowel cancer are common. According to mainstream sources there are “no known cures” for Crohn’s disease, but therapies do exist that can greatly reduce symptoms, bringing about long-term remission. These include diet modification, electroacupuncture, soothing herbs and vitamin combinations. In this way, Crohn’s sufferers are able to function, but lifestyle and eating habits must be controlled. Traditional medical treatment most always includes using powerful steroid drugs like prednisone, a drug that carries disabling side effects, is harmful to kidney function and affects protein digestion.
Although the Mayo Clinic website states only palliative care can be found for Crohn’s, alternative medicine sees things different. The topic brings us back to biological-terrain, a scientific concept that medicine refuses to understand, willfully ignoring abundant research supporting its existence and importance in gut health. People can and do heal themselves naturally with healthy diet of non-GMO foods, nutritional supplements, water therapy and exercise.
A Toxic Waste Dump in Your Gut
The small intestine is twenty-six foot long. A lot can go wrong in the 26 foot conduit through which digested food passes on its way to the large intestine. As the nutrients travel through it, the body pulls out amino acids, fatty acids, starches, vitamins and other nutrients destined to their target organs and glands. The nutrients are then distributed to all the cells in the body.
Researchers are looking into how Crohnes can affect your brain, your mood and the way you think. Connections between gut health and disorders like anxiety and depression offer compelling evidence of the importance of pre and pro biotic supplementation. Secretions of the stress hormone cortisol, for instance, will give rise to a habitual inappropriate sense fear and anxiety causing a vicious cascade of events that turn healthy people into physical wrecks.
The Stomach-Brain Connection
Similar to Celiac Disease, the manifestations are inflammatory, and always associated with unfriendly organisms being somewhere that they don’t belong. As populations of these pathogenic organisms increase, gut pH also increases triggering the inflammation. The prescribing of antibiotics further disturbs healthy organisms living in the gut.
Dysbiosis, or Leaky Gut Syndrome nearly always goes misdiagnosed. The following symptoms are common entities seen in dysbiosis:
- Food sensitivities
- Thyroid conditions
- Joint pain
- Skin issues like rosacea and acne
- Digestive problems
- Weight gain
Leaky gut is characterized by weakening of the intestinal lining from biochemical imbalance in its internal environment. The microvilli lose their muscle tone. The degraded intestinal wall starts to leak incompletely digested proteins into the bloodstream. This protein translocation signals the immune system to secrete inflammatory chemicals called leukotrienes, cytokines and histamines. Aside from vaccinations, most allergies get their start in this way, including those who suffer with gluten and lactose intolerance.
The Basic Three from anti-agingremedies.com can help stabilize inflammation. Several other supplements can help support digestive health. The most beneficial is called LiyfZymes. It is a broad-spectrum digestive enzyme that thoroughly digests everything but the intestine itself, including chemicals. Second there is L-Glutamine Plus, a high-quality probiotic…. then rutin, and betaine.
We always recommend The Basic Three as a start-up approach to level the playing field by restoring healthy gut biota and broadly controlling inflammation. Digestive enzymes and probiotic are taken daily to replenish good bacteria. These crowd out the bad bacteria, sending them on to the large intestine to be eliminated. Enzymes can also digest bad proteins in your blood that cause bloating, sinus and digestive congestion and skin disorders. A serum fibrinogen blood test can disclose blood thickening, supporting this thesis.
L-Glutamine – an essential amino acid, L-Glutamine is a silver bullet for managing all conditions of leaky gut. It’s dual role as an anti-inflammatory and regenerative nutrient can heal the lesions responsible for the leaking. Glutamine powder can also be taken in a shake for advanced healing with more rapid recovery.
Licorice Root is an adaptogen herb that balances the stress hormone cortisol, while improving acid production in the stomach. LiyfZymes is designed to fully support all the body’s digestive and detoxification processes. It will maintain and protect the mucosa lining of the stomach and duodenum. I often recommended advanced use of this formula by the tablespoon, equal to 30-45 capsules daily.

Buckwheat containing Rutin
Rutin is a gentle, natural version of the flavonoid quercetin, but it’s more easily tolerated. It is derived from buckwheat and has been shown to improve gut barrier function by sealing leaks, creating a tightening of junction proteins. It stabilizes mast cells and reduces the release of histamine, a feature found in all food intolerance and allergies. Rutin combines with cations, supplying nutrients from the soil that have been taken up by the cells of the plant. The rutin is released to attach to iron molecules, preventing them from binding to hydrogen peroxide, which would otherwise create a highly reactive free radical that can damage your cells. Rutin has been observed as a functional antioxidant. There is evidence of its role as an inhibitor of angio-genesis, a finding with relevance in the control of certain cancers.
In summary, all conditions of the digestive tract have some measure of biological terrain disruption. The graver the condition, the more degraded the condition of the gut. These changes begin occurring after the age of twenty five years. By 35 years of age, the process begins showing mutations in the cellular makeup of intestinal lining. It is at this time that supplements, homeopathic remedies, diet and exercise become essential to survival and a complete recovery.
