Most people today have heard of Crohn's disease but few people know or understand what it actually entails. Only those with Crohn's are aware of how much they suffer and how it can disrupt their daily life as well as the lives of those closest to them.
Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease affecting the gastrointestinal and digestive tracts. The most common symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, fatigue, weight loss, anemia, rectal bleeding, bowel obstruction, and fistulas.
Although Crohn's disease affects millions of people worldwide, doctors are still unsure of the cause and a cure is yet to be found.
Mental health can also be affected as a result of the physical and emotional toll involved in managing the illness. Since there is no cure and one never knows when they may experience a flare-up, feelings of hopelessness can occur. Indeed, as many as 1 in 5 people with Crohn's may suffer from depression.
While the disease is life-long there are efforts that can be made to minimize flare-ups.
If treated correctly, patients can enjoy long stretches of time where they can live normal and healthy lives without experiencing any symptoms whatsoever.
There are various medications that your doctor may prescribe in an effort to control the disease. Unfortunately, these medications come along with their own set of unpleasant side effects (such as weight gain, nausea, vomiting, and susceptibility to infection). As there isn’t a specific drug that works for everyone, one may need to try several medications before finding the one that works best for them.
Clinical trials have shown that low dose naltrexone (NaltrexLow™) is a safe and effective way to put Crohn's into remission, providing tremendous relief to both pediatric and adult Crohn's patients.
In the first clinical trial at Hershey Medical Center, Penn State University, impressive results showed that LDN benefited 89% of users, with 67% achieving disease remission!

A significant benefit of NaltrexLow™ is that there are no serious adverse side effects and that its available at a low price without a prescription.
Since NaltrexLow™ is so safe and well tolerated, a growing number of people are trying NaltrexLow™ to see if it may work for them.
As Smokey Charis from New Mexico described her experience in using LDN:
“I kept feeling better and better. I have a lot more energy than I did when I was sick. I'm not worried about waking up in the middle of the night with pain, so I'm pain free, which is huge. I can now eat pretty much whatever I want. I’m able to get back into all of my normal routines. I do a lot of yoga, bicycle, and am very active physically. I'm very happy I'm able to do those things that I love again. I really have felt very well for over a year now, so I’m very pleased about that.”
