New Supplements for Crohn's Disease

Over the past 12 years thousands of visitors to our site have benefited from the top-of-the-line supplements, tests and advice that we provide on line at Crohns.Net. Thousands too, have followed the recommended Crohns Protocol, not only for crohns disease but also a wide variety of other digestive issues, gaining relief and disappearance of their symptoms.

As a true clinician, I am always researching new products that come on the market. In recent months, there have been several products that have proved to be very useful in overcoming digestive symptoms. These products do not take the place of those advocated in the crohns protocol but rather offer supplemental support.

I wanted to share these with you, in case any of them would fit your needs. I am also offering you an introductory further 5% discount on the already discounted prices, when you order any of them within the next 14 days.

Please know that I am extremely interested in your well being. As long as you are an active customer shopping at, I am always available via email to answer any questions you may have regarding your health, be it selection of products, choice of test or other suggestions.

Please take a moment to review the new products:

Intestinal Repair Capsules - this formula contains soothing mucilaginous herbs, amino acids and nutrients to restore gastrointestinal cells and well-tolerated plant enzymes, aloe vera, marshmallow root, and L-glutamine.

Digest Gluten Plus - is a protease enzyme formula that is very effective for controlling the negative effects of eating gluten for those gluten-sensitive people.

Glutagenics - is a very effective Metagenics product that contains glutamine, deglycyrrhizinized licorice (DGL), and aloe vera, a formula that supports the integrity and healthy function of the gastrointestinal lining very well.

Metagest - another effective Metagenics product, that has betaine HCl combined with pepsin, a proteolytic enzyme, to encourage the natural production of digestive agents in the stomach.

Slippery Elm powder andSlippery Elm capsules - enhances digestive function and supports intestinal function. It is rich in mucilage and helps stimulate the production of mucus, a component of the gastrointestinal tract's protective lining. Many digestive complaints can be ameliorated using this herb.

Ultra Bifidus DF - Dairy FREE Ultra Bifidus - is an excellent supplement for the large intestine. The powder is easily added to a smoothie. It may also be used as a rectal implant when needed.

UltraInflamx Plus 360 - a medical food - certain patients really thrive on it when everything they eat seems to bother them.

Zinlori by Metagenics - a wonderful supplement the provides relief for gastric discomforts such as occasional heartburn and indigestion, upset stomach, mild nausea, bloating, belching, and burping.

May your 2011 be healthy and happy!

Essential Fatty Acids and Vitamin E Reduce PMS Symptoms

For women who suffer with symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), including mood swings, fatigue, food cravings, and tender breasts, a pill containing essential oils and vitamin E may bring relief. That is the finding of new research presented in the journal of Reproductive Health.

Approximately 75 percent of menstruating women experience some degree of PMS symptoms. For some women, the physical and emotional symptoms are so severe their daily lives are disrupted. In addition to the symptoms already mentioned, problems with concentration, crying spells, joint or muscle pain, headache, sleep disturbances, weight gain, constipation, diarrhea, and anxiety can be added to the list.

Scientists from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil, have discovered that a supplement containing various essential fatty acids, as well as vitamin E, can significantly reduce PMS symptoms as soon as three months after starting treatment.

Edilberto Rocha Filho and his research team reported that "administration of 1 or 2 grams of essential fatty acids to patients with PMS results in a significant decrease in symptoms scores." These improvements were achieved without a corresponding increase in total cholesterol...Read more...

Did You Know?

  • Vitamin C helps prevent bruises. Take 200 milligrams (mg) of Vitamin C daily to help the body produce collagen, which strengthens skin against impact. Also, the antioxidant Pycnogenol may help to strengthen blood vessels and improve skin elasticity.
  • If you get a bruise: Rub arnica gel into it to reduce pain and swelling. Do not use arnica on broken skin.
  • To stop a nosebleed, sit upright, lean forward and pinch the soft part of your nose with your thumb and forefinger for five to 15 minutes.
  • To prevent recurrent nosebleeds: Humidify your living space...lubricate your nose with saline spray or a thin film of petroleum jelly. Also, talk to your doctor -- the blood vessel causing nosebleeds may need to be cauterized.
