Hi, I was diagnosed just about a year ago, and from May of last year when I started my meds to January I still wasn't 100%--the upset tummy was not as frequent, but I still did have pain and relatively frequent upset. Before trying to introduce new foods, make sure you are going a fews days with little to no symptoms, and then try the new food once and wait a few days. You may be expecting too much from the meds if you are trying new foods within the first few months. I also found that adding in a supplement of CBD oil twice a day helped my symptoms allievate.

I understand the battle. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis at 14yo and suffered for 10 years with GI doctors that never explained how to heal or improve. I became a naturopathic doctor and learned how to heal and stay in remission. I have been medicine free for 10 years and did not have surgery because of natural medicine. First intervention is diet: remove common food allergens corn, wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs, potatoes. Avoid carageenan in milks and foods. Avoid sugar! L-glutamine, probiotics, omega 3, Vitamin C and E can all help. Castor oil on tummy every night with heating pad can help restore structural integrity. Exercise 3x per week to keep things moving and improve immune system. Find a holistic, naturopathic doctor. They will teach you how to improve your health and stay in remission. Hope this helps :)

Hi Evvy1010,

So sorry to hear about you being diagnosed with Chrohn's Disease.  Being diagnosed with any type of IBD is definitely life changing, and can be hard to accept at first.  

It's good you are working on keeping up your nutrition and strength, as well as staying hydrated.  Those are all VERY important in helping to keep you somewhat healthy, at least.  You may also want to try some type of protein shake with other vitamins and nutrients in it as well.  I myself, like the taste of the Atkins protein shakes, and those seem to be fairly easy on my stomach.  I am newly officially diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, which is another form of IBD, as you probably already know.  I'm not sure how much research you have done yet about IBD, but the more you know about them, the better it will be for you in the long run, especially.  I'm also still dealing with being pretty sick as well, so I know how upsetting and tiring it can be.

Good luck and take care.  Feel free to keep in touch with me too.  :)
