Your Input Please

Posted on Posted in Film Issues, Production Notes

This summer I hope to interview several doctors about conventional treatments, alternative treatments and digestive conditions. Some will be specialists others more general.

I would love to hear from you any questions that you want me to ask a doctor, health professional and experts. NOTE: There is no guarantee I will be able to ask everyone’s questions because I may not have much time to interview some of the experts. Thank you for your understanding.

The below is only a small sampling of all the topics that may be covered in my interviews with medical and health professionals. I want to be the voice for patients all over the world who are looking for answers on how to heal and overcome digestive conditions, please don’t be shy and let me know what some of your questions are so that your voice can be heard and responded to. You can leave a comment below or send me an email at info -at- crohnsend.com. Don’t forget to tell me who you want to answer your question. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are some topic suggestions to spark questions from you:

  • medical marijuana
  • low-dose naltrexone
  • bacteriotherapy
  • probiotics
  • helminthic therapy
  • acupuncture
  • yoga
  • meditation
  • emotional freedom techniques
  • diets
  • glutamine
  • vitamin d
  • drug research
  • drug funding
  • safety
  • ccfa
  • ccfc
  • crohn’s disease
  • ulcerative colitis
  • celiac disease
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • statistics
  • humira
  • prednisone
  • remicade
  • cimzia
  • pentasa
  • children
  • adults
  • men
  • women
  • patient empowerment
  • conventional, integrative, alternative medicines
  • post traumatic stress disorder
  • I know I’d really like to know how much they know about the genetics behind crohn’s and UC.

    Also any research that suggests today’s environment/ processed food we eat etc. we live in is in some ways responsible for the massive increase in the disease in the western world

  • Thanks Kayleigh, I have a couple research papers I just finished reading that I need to do a post about because they directly relate to your questions. Quick answer is that genetics play a small role and yes western diets cause inflammatory, autoimmune diseases of all kinds, including cancer.

  • I just listened to the Crohn’s boy interview on scd lifestyle and he said his diarrhea symptoms only got bad AFTER taking his first colonoscopy, presumably because of the flush drinks they make you take before having it. He was not told about probiotics by anyone and didn’t know about them at the time either, so he thinks that because of the flush out drinks the bad bacteria were able to breed afterwards and that is when his diarrhea symptoms started and got bad.

    I thought this was a VERY valid theory and something to pursue when asking questions to people (not nescessarily doctors though as they don’t believe in the parasite cause of the ailment) about when their symptoms began.

    A warning should be made on those magnesium citrate and similar colonoscopy flush things that they should take mega amounts of probiotics afterwards or could get very sick otherwise.

    Another question which is based on my own theory of the root cause is that ask each person with “uc/crohns” whether their symptoms started during or within a few months to a year or two after they took a trip to a semi tropical or tropical region. During and within a month afterwards is **exactly** when my 12-30/day diarrhea symptoms started over 2 years ago (and continued ever since every day until scd), and it is my theory that because of worldwide travel increases from the 50’s all around the world from people living in medium climates to travel to tropical climates on vacations, that UC/crons has increased.

    If you look at the stats from the 50’s till now the increase follow each other. When people around the world have begun travelling by plane to tropical locations and back, the increase in uc/crohns has increased. I believe there is a direct relation to various bacterial parasites which exist in semi and tropical locations which people get from drinking the water or food washed in water there or dairy products, etc. These parasites that initiate uc/crohns are so strong they are not like the weaker ones that most people going to tropical locations and get diarhea get and then soon go away, these stronger ones embed themselves within the tissue and take long protocols to get rid of by food rules like scd and tropical antibiotics followed by probiotics and other little known approaches that you talk about on your site.

    Western medicine only barely understands 20% of bacteria that is in the gut, the other 80% they have no clue. These “diseases” I would bet all my money on are initiated by certain types of bacterial parasites and until we learn how to kill them we won’t be able to get rid of the symptoms that western doctors call uc or crohns.

    I believe that your documentary is going to be beyond cutting edge even though most all western doctors will mock it and trivialize it. They are all useless pathetic slaves to the drug companies, it is people like you who are the real doctors. What you are doing will become a great part of history for future generations.

    Thanks for all you do.
