I get angry sometimes, as I’m sure you do that people can have insurance to take more drugs and get more surgeries that lead to more complications and more suffering, yet they cannot get the help that will help them have a better life.

I really wish there was an easy way, but there isn’t. Nothing worth doing was ever easy to do. Digestive conditions are so complex to heal from.

Would still like to know how eating home cooked meals with non processed food is radical. I always ask this question and I have yet to get a good answer. Which leads me to believe it’s not radical, but that people’s mindset prevents them from making the change and they blame it on the change being radical.

We forget our history, where we’ve come from and have adapted too quickly to modern society’s conveniences to realize that what we have today is radical, not what we had back then.

What we eat is one of the most effective ways (aside from antibiotics) that we can change the diversity of microbes in our gut. Some foods don’t have live bacteria on it those also tend to be the ones that feed pathogenic bacteria. They can proliferate in our small bowel and cause all kinds of problems.

When one changes their diet to more natural food and not processed, the pathogenic bacteria can’t reproduce as much. Additionally, the probiotics from the food and commercial sources are free to have a greater impact on the health of the host.

I learned as a teenager after taking Accutane for my acne to ask questions. If I don’t understand the answer, ask more or decline treatment. At least that way if problems occur, it will be my fault and I have control over my faults, not other person’s faults.

Mount Everest is one of the world’s toughest mountains to climb, but people have climbed it. I’ve met and interviewed several people with severe crohn’s / colitis who have used diet and supplements and are pharma med free. It’s not the severity of the disease that matters, it’s the determination and effort of the person that matters.

Maybe this will become a new running thing, maybe not. But I often make comments on Facebook to other people that feature my current thinking on what inflammatory bowel diseases are or how to heal from them. Sometimes I wonder if others will find them useful, so I’ll try to post more of them on this blog. Here’s one I wrote just now.

Document: Treatment Options for IBDs

2

I would love to have your feedback on a new document I created today, Options for Treating IBDs.

I created this because many people are not aware of most of these treatment options. I do not want this document to cover every single treatment that exists, there are hundreds, but to be a beginning point for people to do more research.

It introduces diets, supplements, drugs and unconventional treatments.

Ancestral Health Symposium

AHS

On August 5th and 6th I attended the first annual Ancestral Health Symposium, which is run by the Ancestral Health Society, a non-profit dedicated to developing solutions to our current health challenges from an evolutionary perspective. They ask questions such as, “How does health today compare with the health of our ancestors?” and “What makes up for any perceived differences in our health from our ancestors?”

“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got.”

Let’s think about this quote for a moment.
