I think it is wonderful that Alternative Medicine is finally receiving due recognition by the medical community. Complementary Alternative Medicine supports allopathic or traditional medicine enhancing optimal health and wellbeing.

The mind and body contain highly intelligent systems designed to heal us from birth. By tapping into these systems many disorders can actually be effectively managed. Some diseases can even almost vanish! That being said, there is a lot to be grateful for regarding traditional medicine as well.

Nowadays, many people practice using the mind/body connection for natural wellness. Some people call these techniques new. However, they’ve actually been around for a long time… some of them for centuries!

Hypnosis is one such Alternative Medicine technique that helps with many maladies. But there are also many other alternative methods in use today. Yoga, acupuncture/pressure, tai-chi, vitamin and probiotic therapy have also been recognized as having therapeutic value when used with mainstream medicine. Consider doing research into other alternative therapies out there. Working with your doctor you might be amazed at how together, you can develop a personal treatment plan that works for you.

What is Crohn’s Disease?

Dr. Burrill Bernard Crohn, an American gastroenterologist, described fourteen gastroenterology cases in 1932. He presented them to the American Medical Association. Although he wasn’t the first to describe the disease, worldwide, it is known as Crohn’s Disease.

Crohn’s Disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract. It must NOT be confused with irritable bowel syndrome(IBS). A definitive diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease must be made by your primary care physician. We ask that you discuss any Integrative/Alternative Medicine with your doctor first.

There is no cure for Crohn’s Disease and mainstream medicine is focused on the symptoms presented in each case. Indeed, symptoms are much more severe and have far reaching consequences if left untreated. The exact cause of the disease is unknown but is believed to be a combination of immune, environmental, and bacterial factors.

There is Hope in This Alternative Medicine Approach to Managing Crohn’s

Hypnosis is a completely normal and natural approach to wellness that has already shown promising results with gut-related disorders. Crohn’s Disease affects patients between the ages of 15-30, some earlier and some later. Research specific to Crohn’s Disease is limited but promising.
