Over at Gut Smart Research I posted an article supposedly written by a doctor who advocates more Crohn’s patients have surgery. This kind of “news” article is better know as a “puff piece” in my book.
It glosses over the risks as if surgery is no big deal. I just had to write this comment, which you can see posted at the bottom of the page:
This article is a perfect example of why people are suffering from Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative Colitis and other IBD conditions. Surgery should only be reserved for life threatening situations! We live in a violent society and advocate for violent solutions.
There’s a more natural way to heal our guts from the damage done by IBDs. It involves changing ones diet to exclude inflammatory foods like refined grains, sugar and processed foods full of fake laboratory manufactured ingredients that we can’t even pronounce. Look up SCD, GAPS, Macrobiotics, Paleo, raw vegan diets and choose one that will work for you.
Then we include probiotics and supplements that heal the intestines, I’m talking about Lactobacillus Acidophilus, glutamine, colloidal silver and more.
Enough with the drugs. Enough with the surgery. Let’s allow nature to do what it does best, heal and restore life to its original balance.
Interestingly, my comment is the only one with negative rating and yet it’s the only comment that offers safer, cheaper & more effective solutions for IBD patients!
What’s wrong with surgery? As highlighted in the clips the author states:
– “a 50% virtual cure”
What does “virtual cure” mean? That doesn’t compare very favorably to the 70% – 80% of Crohn’s patients that enter remission with Helminthic therapy and certain diets! The allopathic community using drugs and surgery dream for those kinds of numbers.
– surgery is a huge expense, doesn’t matter if healthcare in other countries is paid for by the government, someone is paying huge sums for it when they could instead spend far less on natural whole foods and natural supplements
The author says, “Nearly 85 per cent of sufferers will need surgery in their lifetime.” Further saying it’s not a question of if, but when. Again, this is ignoring the fact that a majority (not all) of Crohn’s patients who need surgery were not put on alternative natural treatments after diagnosis and their bodies were never able to heal. Instead, their symptoms were suppressed and festered until the problem grew large enough to overcome the suppression effects of the drugs, creating greater problems than before.
– resulting from surgery, 10% get blood poisoning, which can be fatal and is the 10th leading cause of death in the US.
If I didn’t know that alternatives can be cheaper, safer and more effective, I might think that a 50% chance at a “virtual cure” and a low, low 10% chance of getting a fatal blood poisoning were excellent odds.
This stresses to me, at least, how important it is to spread the word about WANTED: Crohn’s End as far as possible. People aren’t being told about the other side, the natural side. The side of healing, where when you crest over the mountain, you can see the end of Crohn’s and Colitis. And I’m telling you, it’s beautiful.
