Accidental Fear or Valid reporting? Risk of New IBD Rises for Patients Treated With Etanercept

The Center for Biosimilars today published an article that concluded that there is a fearful risk of being diagnosed with IBD Crohn’s or Colitis for those currently being treated with Etanercept. Respectfully, I believe this study is incomplete and does not tell the full story. Though I don’t currently have access to the full study, just the Wiley Online Library Summary and the Center for Biosimilars article, until Lifestyle and Diet are factored into these studies I believe they do not tell the complete story.  20 years of clinical and cost outcomes from Integrative Medicine* have demonstrated the following results:

The Crohns Colitis Summit Changed My Life. Don’t give up the good fight! You are bringing so much healing to the world….

…that’s what Mia emailed me. After asking her to elaborate, this is what she said next: I have rheumatoid arthritis. I got diagnosed at the end of 2016, with a 4 months wait to see a rheumatologist, on state insurance because I wasn’t able to work from the pain and fatigue, and with Trump attacking the ACA I was terrorized over the idea of being dependent on the US medical system and then being denied coverage. I decided to seek further education in proactive healthcare I could rely on. I spent that time doing AIP to see if anything besides

Researchers discover critical link to controlling inflammation in Crohn’s disease

To aggregate the most appropriate IBD news we are republishing this article. This was first reported by Case Western Reserve University in MedicalXpress. We updated the article for further accuracy. (Thank You Dr. Peter Spiegel for bringing this breakthrough to our attention) Investigators at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine discovered that blocking interleukin-1α (IL1α), a protein that controls inflammation in the gut, markedly decreases the severity of intestinal inflammation in a mouse model of Crohn’s disease (CD). The anti-inflammatory effects of the biological therapies used to neutralize IL1α were similar to those of steroids, which represent what

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

If you find this information useful, please donate so we can continue providing you with meaningful information to help you Thrive with IBD Crohn’s Colitis. Thank You. 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

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, and Inflammatory Markers

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. [2] I’d bet you a green smoothie that 100% of those with IBD have at some point suffered from depression and anxiety. I’d further bet you a mug of Bone Broth that 100% of
