Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn’s Disease

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common gastrointestinal diseases. Most common among the symptoms are abdominal pain, a feeling of intestinal distention or bloating, and either diarrhea or constipation. Patients may have symptoms with stress and an increased sensitivity to bowel distention. Crohn’s disease and colitis, like other autoimmune diseases, is caused by immune attack to the lining of the colon. Colonoscopy often shows inflammation or ulcers on the membrane of one or more sections of colon. Clinical symptoms include abdominal pain, irregular bowel movement, blood in stool etc. People who suffer from Crohn’s disease usually start with milder conditions like irritable bowel syndrome. If the problem is not resolved, it may further develop into much more server Crohn’s disease.

IBS and Crohn’s disease share the common root causes which are the stresses and toxins. Related factors include food intolerance and allergies, emotional blockages, Candida and Leaky Gut Syndrome. Like many other autoimmune diseases the reason causing immune attack is still unknown. It is reasonable to believe that there is toxin or pathogen inside the colon lining, which may be the trigger for the attack. Thus colon detox is the major therapy for Crohn’s disease. Meanwhile stabilizing immune system with Immune System Reprogramming is also important to ease the immune attack. Most of the Crohn’s patients have food intolerance, Candida and leaky gut syndrome. Our IBMT program benefits most patients by controlling inflammation of the colon and calming immune down.

I have many successful cases helping colon recovering. Patients started with either mild inflammation with polyps or many ulcers and bloody colon. After therapy most cases showed normal intestinal lining in colonoscopy. Intestinal lining regenerates everyday as long as the pathogens and toxins are gone and the healing energy is not too bad. The only difficulty to treat Crohn’s disease is to battle with the steroids. Some patients take prednisone to get a quick fix. If they take the drug too long or too much (10mg or higher), the electrodermal testing results are going to be masked and inaccurate. Meanwhile, prednisone is adrenal hormone. Taking it too long will dramatically reduces patient’s adrenal function and causes further hormonal imbalance, which hurts the patient in long-term healing ability. Other immune suppression medications are ok to take during our therapy. We will work to reduce the medication gradually.
