Going off of Medication?


Thu, October 07, 2021 6:20 PM

I was diagnosed with Crohns mid 2019, they started me on a pill forget name and then Remicade next.  I still had some symptoms with Remicade it seemed until i took out foods from my diet that my gut did not seem to like.  I mentioned to my GI doctor that i was interested in moving off of remicade but she highly advised against it.

Has anyone had success leaving a biomedic medication?

I have had UC for over 15 years and about 2 years ago was placed on Entyvio which is starting to not work.  I never really went into remission.   So, I also want to get off pharmaceutical completely.  I'm seeing a naturalpathic doctor and started to do both and see if my symptoms get better.  The thing about naturalpathic medicine is takes months. So right now I'm doing both.  It's trial and error.  I'm even seeing a acupuncturist.   But again, it takes time.  So far being on both naturalpathic and pharmaceuticals it's been taking time. I document everything- keep a journal- what works and what doesn't. 

GI doctors seem to treat the symptoms where naturalpathic doctors treat the cause.

Good luck.
