Be careful who you take advice from

A few months ago, in the One Great Gut private Facebook group, there was a thread where someone asked: “Can anyone relate? A sigmoidoscopy just revealed I have a diseased colon, and the doctor who did the procedure says I should go on Remicade® (infliximab) right away. He says if it works it could save my colon, if not, I’ll probably need surgery. I have been loosing weight. But my other GI I’ve been working more closely with is about the Humira® (adalimumab), which I hear may not work as fast but it’s not something I’ll have to take for

Coconut Oil Enemas Saves Woman From Surgery

A new case study out of Germany was just published in the October 2018 American Journal of Gastroenterology. A 32-year old woman was experiencing fistulizing Crohn’s Disease complicated with diversion colitis.  Diversion colitis is inflammation of the large intestine brought on after surgical treatment (Usually an ileostomy or colostomy). In early 2016 her perianal fistula, after not responding to pharmaceutical drugs, was treated with a diverting sigmoidostomy which is when surgery creates an artificial anus in the sigmoid colon.  After the surgery, she initially responded well to ENTYVIO®(vedolizumab), although the symptoms from the fistula did not go away. Just a few months later

Dating Dilemma’s

Whew! One Great Accomplishment. I just canceled my Match account, uninstalled Bumble, Tinder, Coffee Meets Bagel, and OkCupid. I even left Ashley Madison. Kidding. No judgement for other’s, but you’d never find me on that type of website. With those accounts cancelled, apps’s deleted, I feel SO much lighter. Happier. Spacious. Empty. Empty so someone aligned with my personal values can complement my life. A full cup has no space for more. It’s full. Add more, and it spills over, making a mess you then should clean up. I have my lonely moments, at it’s worst I am comparing myself to

Have you heard of Leaky Vagina?

Warning. I’m about to get raw, and real. It may make some of you uncomfortable. Science fascinates me. Have you ever heard of leaky vagina? I hadn’t until today. Leaky gut? Yes. Leaky Blood Brain barrier? Yes. But leaky vagina!?!? I’ve never heard the term before. Yes, your intestinal dysbiosis and leaky gut from Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis could be contributing to unhealthy genital health. This is also 100% applicable to the microbiome in the penis. It all makes sense. Let me share a vulnerable, embarrassing, scary story. I remember dating a beautiful woman a few years ago, and

What an emotional day

All my material possessions were delivered home today. I last saw the insides of this Pod fourteen months ago in June 2017 before I asked Ipek to drive me to UCSD Thorton Hospital. The same day I heard those fateful words, “Joel, you may die at home if you don’t goto the hospital ASAP”. Days prior I heard, “Worst colon I’ve seen in 40 years, a meat grinder”.I have the pictures as evidence. It was my first hospital stay, and continued proof natural healing works. Integratively. My ego took a blow learning the hard way which doctors to trust and

He’s one of my heros, and if you listened to the Crohn’s And Colitis Summit, he’s the teacher for some of the healing cases I featured and interviewed, including Bob Stickles, Paul Lemburg, and Joe Figliano You shouldn’t  need a Facebook or Instagram account for either of the two links above to work. Enjoy the short video, hope it helps you on your health journey Before I sign off and meditate(Since I didn’t make time for

My grandfather lost his mind :(

I’ll never forget the day. It was a hot 1996 summer visiting my family in Israel. I had visited many times before, each time growing closer to my relatives across the globe. One of my favorite bonding moments was when my Grandfather would “secretly” slip me a piece of candy that my parents wouldn’t allow. It sounds silly, but it was a thing between us that would make us smile and laugh. This visit was different. Something was wrong. From the moment we saw each other I could see he wasn’t the same. I learned dementia had started and everyone
