Reply to Postoperative Crohns Treatment
by: Inna

Hello AJ and thank you for the question.

Remicade is recommended by most gastroenterologists as a secondary line of treatment, especially after surgery that involved fistula. This is all backed up by studies and medical research. I would not argue anything against Remicade except that the side effect profile is not very favorable.

But all of the biologicals like Remicade show very similar side effect profiles. So if you are going with any biologicals you may as well consider Remicade.

What I would also recommend for you is to consider trying Functional medicine method. I work with people on the phone and via Skype. I send them home lab kits and work with an advanced, natural healing method that really works.

This method is designed perfectly for Crohn's patients as well as for other chronic disease patients.

You can continue getting traditional Crohns treatment and get a supplemental alternative healing method like Functional medicine.

You can contact me at my office 1-800-557-8039 for more information. I believe that I can help you.

Best, Inna

Thanks Inna

I just found out this afternoon that my Insurance will not cover much of the Remicade, so thats out of the question financially. I am also concerned about all of the side effects.

I am doing a bit of research on probiotics, Have you had much experience with this for Crohns?

Probitics-Great Idea!
by: Inna

Hi AJ,

You are 100% right!!!!

Probiotics were actually studied for Crohn's disease and they have some great data.

You can read those studies on PubMed.gov. Just type in "Crohn's and Probiotics".

The most favorable studies for Crohns were with Saccharomyces Boulardi probiotic.

You can get it here: Floramyces

I've had a lot of success with Probiotic Supreme in the morning on empty stomach and Floramyces at bedtime for Crohn's patients.

But taking only probiotics may not be enough. I would always have to treat each case individually.

Best, Inna

Remicade bill assistant
by: Anonymous

Hi AJ,

I too had issues with my insurance company about paying for the meds/procedure for the remicade. The company who makes Remicade has a program which you can possibly qualify to get assistance with bills should you go to using it. Also, if your doctor works with your insurance company Crohns may be under their list as a cronic illness (it should with all insurance companys but with the way they are lately, they pay for nothing) Anyways you should look into it. Ask your doctor, im sure they know about it if not research it.
