    This may seem like a very unpopular idea, but I'm going to post it anway, just try to be open-minded. ;)

    Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) – I started on this at the end of January 2013 and find myself to be feeling better than I can ever really remember.

    I don't have Crohn's, but I had been suffering from a myriad of other problems such as acid reflux, joint pain (I thought I had arthritis at the age of 45!), excessively dry skin, borderline high colesterol, and even with medication, my high blood pressure was wildly out of control.

    I had a health check around the same time I changed my eating habits, and again just a few weeks ago.

    Blood Pressure
    Then: 175/90 Now: 124/70 (I don't think it's ever been this good!)

    Colesterol
    Then: 6.47 Now: 5.1

    Weight
    Then: 94kg Now: 81kg

    Resting Pulse
    Then: (N/A) Now: I was so relaxed in her office that it was only 58 lol

    My skin problems are clearing up, my reflux is under control and getting better.

    Do a little research and just see what you think. My favorite source of information is: htt://www.dietdoctor.com

    Also, here's an article regarding lchf and Chron's, as well as other problems.

    I, too, had ulcerative colitis and healed myself with a plant based, wholesome diet. Incredible what food can do, yeah? Marisa is inspiring, indeed. Wish we could start some sort of movement to show people there ARE other options aside from steroids and azathioprine and pain killers.

    Wow, the doctor she described as not believing her should be sued for emotional abuse. The way he treated her was the most shocking thing I've ever heard!

    Also, I just happened to surf here somehow from pinterest, but it just so happens that my neighbor wrote one of the top books on healing Crohns naturally: "Self Healing Crohn's and Colitis" by David Klein. Website is digestionperfection dot com.

    Proper diet is very much needed for a good health. We need to be conscious about our health and for that it is very necessary to take proper foods in required amount. Dieting can help the people to reduce their fat easily. Good diet can give a nice and beautiful health. But bad dieting can create several problems to health.

    One of the most moving videos I've seen in a while–my heart goes out to Marisa and all she had to go through, including that dreadful doctor belittling her. I'm so glad she found a way to heal herself and move forward in her life and thrive and now help others with what she has learned–GO REAL FOOD!!

    I just came across this and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Just over 10 yrs ago my Mother was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and spent 2 months in the hospital. Since that time she is on a strict regiment of medications that recently have become VERY costly which in turn has caused a lot of stress. I thought, there has to be a better way! And here is my answer. Thank you very much for posting this! Any additional information and sites that you have that discuss a macrobiotic diet would be appreciated.

    Eye care tips for beach vacations: Beach vacations come with healthy doses of harsh sunlight, dust, sand,
    and the salty sea. The beach resorts in Mexico have special kid-clubs for children of all age groups.
    Whether you are under an umbrella, splashing in the surf, or playing in the sand, nothing beats a day with family at the beach.
