everybody! This is the biggest challenge with Crohn's and Colitis, but also the most empowering aspect.
There is so much to draw from and so much to discover. There are new technologies out that can help to speed up our recovery until we are able to take care of that aspect our self. There are some supplements on the market that really work. Also, reconnecting with certain plant medicines and their healing properties is an art, that has been in use for thousands of years. Why not take advantage of the immense knowledge that has been handed down through many generations. And the most important one is, to cultivate listening to your own inner and outer guidance.
It will be much easier to stay on a healing path that resonates with you and supports your individuality. In a personal dialog I can help you or your child to understand your body's message and to respond to this message in a healthy way. That will include diet, managing work or school, stress awareness and a deeper spiritual understanding.
Every illness is a teacher. If we are willing to open to this reality, instead of fighting it, we can embark on a journey that will take us far into ourselves and will help us understand our role in this world. You will be guided on this path, you do not have to do it alone. Learning to trust in yourself and to trust in the beautiful choreography of life, will help you to let go of certain behavioral patterns, that do not serve you anymore. Regaining our trust is one of the most important building blocks for the foundation to true health. It can not be forced, but needs to be gently re-introduced into your thoughts and feelings.
All this said, we know that sometimes we can't avoid taking antibiotics or other chemical drugs, but it can never be a long term solution. For people who already had major surgery done (like me), it is even more important to get on the path of true healing. Surgery can save life's, but it is very traumatic for the body. To bring ones whole being back to balance will assure future health.

Here you will find different ways to approach Crohn's disease and Colitis and you will see, that healing is possible. It takes patience and dedication and most of the time it will require changes in our lifestyle and environment, but it will also bring understanding and meaning into your life.
"Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it."
-- Helen Keller
It does not matter whether you are a parent of a sick child, a young person just starting out on their own independent life or any other age. What we are trying to achieve is openness to healing. Without being prepared to receive healing, change can not happen. You might find relieve from inflammation and pain through drugs and surgery, and sometimes it is wise to accept that kind of help. But long term, you will have to take your health into your own hands.
In the beginning it can be overwhelming, because we are dealing with a lot of emotions like fear, despair, anger, depression, shame and self doubt. That is the reason why it is good to get some support and guidance, so we can bypass years of trial and error. Through this process you are in charge and you will make your own decisions, because each one of us will create their own healing path. Nothing will work for
