IBD ranks as 1 of the 5 most expensive GI disorders despite its being the lowest in prevalence among the list of GI disorders.

Inflammatory bowel disease patients have higher health costs. Today’s blog post is not just about this growing problem, but also a few solutions I recommend you research and take action on today! I wish more people understood this. Including family, friends, doctor’s offices, hospital finance departments, and debt collectors. The title of this blog post came from the title of an article published in 2016. A study published May 21, 2019 where researchers examined data from 2007 to 2016 for almost 53,000 people with IBD who had either private health insurance or Medicare Advantage coverage with both medical and pharmacy

Second US City Decriminalize’s Entheogens

Oakland’s city council unanimously decriminalized 🍄magic mushrooms🍄 and other natural entheogenic or psychoactive plants and fungi including cactuses, ayahuasca, and iboga. Imperial College London Professor Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris in the Department of Medicine believes “magic mushrooms” could replace antidepressants. “I would imagine if you had some bookmakers doing the odds, there would be strong odds on that [psychedelic therapy] will be licensed sometime in the next five to 10 years – maybe sooner” Robin-Carthart-Harris told the Independent a British online newspaper. From Futurism an independently owned media company based out of New York City: Robin-Carhart-Harris is currently leading a Centre for Psychedelic

Does diet play a role in IBD Crohn’s Colitis progression?

Sometimes I think I live in an alternate reality. Is it really novel and new information that diet plays a role in our health? Especially a dis-ease of the GI tract. 1000 IBD patients 71% assumed that their diet affected their IBD  29% did not 61% considered their IBD specialist disregarded the importance of diet 44 % of GIs and 17% of dietitians considered that diet had a role in pathogenesis (the manner of development of a disease/ progression), which means that 56% of GI’s and 83% of dietitians do not consider diet to have played a role in disease

Therapeutic Retention Enemas: An Underutilized Modality for Ulcerative Colitis

The use of therapeutic enemas has a robust tradition in the history of naturopathic medicine. In addition, my own grandfather, a medical doctor, had a habit of administering a cleansing enema to any of his 8 children who displayed any sign of acute illness, which, in the words of my brother, “if nothing else, probably cut down on malingering.” Despite these facts, I made it into my 30s and through my entire professional training as a naturopathic doctor without having given, received, or even witnessed an enema of any type. This article focuses on the use of enemas in ulcerative

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

Dear Doctor Bagley

I’m hopeful this is one way we turn around the broken healthcare system. I have a voice. You have a voice. Express your appreciation for those who deserve it. Also, express your dissatisfaction with those who deserve it. I also filed a formal complaint for one particular incident. Don’t be that guy who only complains. Give honest feedback for extraordinary service. Extraordinarily bad, and extraordinarily good. Hospitals take patient feedback seriously. Together we can make a difference. Dr. Bagley, Just a quick note to say THANK YOU You probably don’t remember helping me at UCSD Thorton IR on 2-11-2019 during

DMT May Rapidly Improve Depression, Anxiety

According to a recent study[1] published in The American Journal Of Alcohol And Drug Abuse, 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) may improve depression and anxiety when administered in a group setting. In the Johns Hopkins University survey 80% of the participants found that the drug(medicine) improved anxiety and depression symptoms. Studies show that a significant portion of those with IBD, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis suffer from depression and/or anxiety.
