Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on new research outlining one man’s story of how he has “cured” his Crohn’s Disease.
As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/colon-and-digestive/man-claims-he-has-a-cure-for-crohns-disease/) Ari Meisel who lives in New York, has found a way to manage Crohn’s disease symptoms without drug therapy and believes that he has been “cured” of the disease.
His story may be an eye opener into how patients suffering from digestive problems, in particular Crohn’s disease, can lead a relatively normal life free of stomach and other gastrointestinal problems that are often debilitating and disruptive to normal life.
Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which usually affects individuals aged 15-35. The intestines are usually affected, but the disease can affect anywhere from the mouth to the anus. The exact cause of Crohn’s disease is unknown but it is a type of autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks and destroys healthy tissues. This leads to chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, which leads to all of the unpleasant symptoms that accompany the disease.
There are many symptoms of Crohn’s disease, according to the Mayo Clinic, including: diarrhea, abdominal pain and stomach cramping, bloody stools, ulcers, decreased appetite and weight loss. When Crohn’s disease is advanced, there may be additional symptoms including: fever, fatigue, inflammation of the eyes, skin disorders, mouth sores, liver and/or bile duct inflammation and delayed growth or sexual development (in children).
As the Bel Marra Health article reads, while the exact cause of Crohn’s disease is unknown, there are a number of factors that seem to be associated with the disease according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, including: genetics and family history of the disease, environmental factors, smoking and the tendency of the body to over-react to normal bacteria in the intestines.
Ari Meisel was taking 16 pills a day to manage his Crohn’s disease. However, he also admitted that he was smoking a pack of cigarettes per day and consuming fast food. Meisel reported that he was hospitalized for a bowel obstruction which led to an incredibly bad night in the hospital where he stated that he didn’t think he was going to make it through the night. It was because of this experience, that Meisel decided that it was time to make changes to his diet and lifestyle.
It started with quitting smoking and eating a vegan diet for one month back in 2008. Slowly, he added small amounts of dairy back into his diet and became a vegetarian for six months. At this time he also started practicing yoga and started taking part in triathlons as a way to deal with his stress.
Ari Meisel’s story is a positive one that shows that the symptoms, including digestive problems and stomach issues, can be managed (not cured) with diet and lifestyle changes. However, it is important to remember that Meisel made all of these changes under the supervision of a medical professional.
