Alternatives & Immunesuppressants - Working Together.
In the many years I have been campaigning to raise awareness and funds for Crohns sufferers, one of those being my wife, and the many many friends i have made along the way, here in the UK and across the World, and along with all the scientific research around the Prof JHT, I learnt early on, that a lot of people will NOT venture to try Alternatives, partly because they do NOT know much about them, as indeed I did NOT, and they use the advice of their doctor or consultant, as we did, which is fair enough. In this, the fact is that doctors and consultants know little about the Alternatives, it is NOT in their training and are guided by their PCT and the drug companies to perscribe their drugs for whatever illness or use, mainly for what the drugs have been designed for.
Over the last 7 years I have learnt a lot about the Alternatives we have used on my wife and have advised on them to many sufferers and friends, who have tried them and really got a really positive result, which at the end of the day, is all we really want for them, and all we have set out to really achieve, and for them to enjoy their better quality of life with their family and friends, and to enjoy better health for the rest of their lives.
The real thing that is KEY in all this, is the sufferer's Immune System, and how strong is it really ?
Crohns tends to set off the Immune System, to try and compensate and deal with the illness, which is what an Immune System should do, but if it is a weak Immune System that is triggered into reacting to the Crohns, it may well NOT be a strong enough Immune System to deal with it.
Doctors or Consultants perscribe Immunesuppressants to try and suppress the over active Immune System, but are they suppressing an already weak Immune System ?
Can Alternatives work alongside Immunesuppressants to the benefit of the Crohns sufferer ?
The answer is " YES " they really can.
Many sufferers are given Elemental 028 or simular, alongside their medication, this is a Nutrients full, body feed, to give the Immune System Nutrients to try and
help it work properly.
What happens if the body does NOT absorb the Nutrient ?
or the Nutrient passes through too quickly ?
The Immune System only functions correctly and at full strength, if the Nutrients actually get fed in to the Immune System, and by this, the Immune System then goes on to spot & destroy the bad cells that lead to illhealth. Nutrients come also from the food and drink we consume, but if the food and drink, contain chemicals or antibiotics, or little Nutrients as today's foods, all these lower the Immune System, even toothpastes & mouthwashes contain the toxic chemical Fluoride, and so our Immune system has to constantly try and make up it's Nutrient feed level, to work properly at nearly full strength, Quite a task for it to do, even in a healthy person !!
Immunesuppressants ( 6Mercaptopurine or simular ) reduce platlets and white cells, the very white cells that carry the MAP bacteria, we believe the cause of Crohns. The MAP bacteria hides in these white cells waiting to pounce on another piece of organ tissue or digestive tract.
Interestingly Immunesuppressants can also cause a drop in red blood cells, making you feel tired, weak or breathless - anaemic - just as Crohns makes you feel.
A dramatic loss in either red or white cells can actually cause bleeding.
Crohns symptoms that are the same as the Immunesuppressant side effects are also : joint pains, diarrhoea, bleeding, sickness, high temperatures, skin rashes, tired, weak, no energy, bloated and loss of appetite. A severe Crohns symptom is stomach pains or cramps.
Other Immunesuppressants side effects can be : allergic reaction, liver problems, back pain which may be inflamation of the pancrias, hair loss, swollen face, mouth or urinary problems, yellowing of the eyes, mouth ulcers
( Fluoride can cause mouth ulcers ), and rarely Leukaemia, Intestine ulcers and in men a low sperm count.
Alternatives can really help with some of these problems, and simple, yet very effective strong Aloe Vera Gel drink, ( please see on this website ) can help the body absorb and give Nutrient for the Immune System, tackle inflamation in the digestive tract, assist with healing of tissue and help the body detox of harmful chemicals. Aloe Vera jelly or Bee Propoilis cream can help with your skin rashes. Glyconutrient powder can feed positive Nutrients to the Immune System, which also help with the good cell regeneration throughout the body, especially replacing bad cells with good ones at joints, and again enabling the Immune System in the destruction of those bad cells which lead to illhealth. Probiotics help alter the gut bacteria, to reduce bad bacteria and replace with more good bacteria, giving the gut a better chance. Fish oils help with the bone and joint degeneration, which can cause severe pains. If you cannot eat Greens, there is even a Nutrient tablet for this. Bee Propolis is excellent too, in being a strong natural antibiotic.
Many more Alternatives are able to relieve, assist in your illness, and importantly help you manage your illness alongside your medication with a far better quality of life. Hope this helps in your decision of your future. Please consider trying Alternatives alongside your medication, it just might really surprise you in your outcome.
