Okay my new friends,

Here is a little bit more about me you should all know just in case we ever meet.  I have Crohn’s Disease.  What this is is an inflammation of your intestines.  Well, I have only 6 ft. left and your body holds 23 ft.  Now, don’t feel sorry for me, have dealt with it for 26+ years, no biggy anyway, I’m still here.  I can eat what I want except spicy stuff, down side is I have to be near a bathroom all the time, due to me having an iloestomy.  Feel free to ask any questions you want, I’ll answer them.  This is hereitary so, my dad has it to, just not as bad as me.  I have had 10+ surgeries and no rectum.  Sounds pretty bad, huh?  It’s not.  I have 4 boys and wouldn’t have if I didn’t have these surgeries.  Life is good and I still get up every morning and embrace it like it’s my last one.  The pain gets pretty intense but hey that’s what meds are for, right?

A good web site is: CCFA.com.  This will give you some info as well.

Okay, enough depressing news.  Hope to hear from some of you or even all of you.

Dee

    • Dee,  I admire your attitude and stamina.  I don’t want to appear to have a hidden agenda or to understand all of the treatments you have tried to control your crohn’s disease.

      I am an independent associate with Max International.  Max’s flagship product is Max GXL a glutathione accelerator.  I have talked to a few people who have crohn’s disease and have seen improvements after taking Max GXL.  I found this article on pubmed.gov
      [Link Removed]  

      Max GXL is proven (in human double blind clinical trials) to reduce cellular inflamation by 61% and (in my opinion only) may be why some people with Crohn’s disease experience some relieve when taking Max GXL.  

      If you would like more information please contact me at 972-849-1561 or visit my website  [Link Removed] for more information.

      God’s blessings,

    • Hi Dee~

      Wow, you’ve described what I go through ever since I had my gall bladder removed.  Conicidence or maybe not, but I completely hear you about the spicy food (which I LOVE) and the bathroom!

      I do try to take supplements like L-gluatathione which is great to take anyway since our body produces it and uses it’s own supply on a daily basis!  I think I just need to stay away from the spicy food!

    • I don’t have my gallbladder or appendix either.  I get Humira shots every other week and have to give myself shots just so I don’t dehydrate.  Summer time is the worst for me, because of the heat we have here.  Really, once it gets past 75 I’m sunk.
