please take time to read this, it might help you my husband suffered from crohn's disease almost all his life and i can tell you that its really terrible, watching him get lean and pale worried me the more, he lost appetite, he was always and was unable to go to work again,he kept having sores in his mouth and the constant pain was making the situation worse. we kept going from one gastroenterologist to another, they were not helping the situation, they kept giving us different drugs and it was making it worse,they kept increasing the dosage, in 2016 when i went to cvs pharmacy to go and get another drugs for him, that was were i heard about dr folonsho a herbal doctor, who specialises in using natural roots and herbs to treat diseases and chronic pain. at first i was in doubt, because we have tried many options that were not helping and all the doctors we came across told us that there was no cure, and i believed, so i contacted this herbal doctor and he said he could help my husband,after i told him my problem, he said he has a herbal remedy that can heal my husband and reverse this illness completely and he will be back to his normal state of health, not having many alternatives anymore i requested for the herbal remedy,because the situation was getting worse, after using the medicine for about 3 weeks there was great improvement, and my husband was getting back to his normal self, its been 4 years now and my husband is still strong as ever, all thanks to dr folonsho, and may GOD continue to bless you, so if you are still sufferring from this disease kindly contact dr folonsho today either through email [email protected] or via whats app +2348073410606 or you can check out his website https://drfolonshoherbalhome.simdif. com/ and you will be glad you did, i wouldn't want someone to experience what my husband experienced

Dear all, please let me share this important study invitation from EFFCA and ECCO: There are some topics that are hard to discuss, for which people may not want to share their opinions. Surgery in people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease is one of these neglected topics. It is, however, extremely relevant and important to collect information about the perception of surgery is, the impact on the quality of life, and the worries about it. We are looking for many people with IBD who can provide us their views about surgery, by completing a survey that lasts about 15 minutes. We need some help to reach out potential participants, to spread the invitation across the IBD community. Could you please help us, by completing the survey, but also sharing this message in the social media? Here is the link to the survey: https://unicatt.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b8hTPkEheX9XoRT Thank you in advance! EFCCA & ECCO IBD SU(rgery)PER(ception) Study Group

Hi, everyone! I wanted to share this amazing video of holistic dentist, Dr. Winick, who we interviewed for our wellness media company, WellBe. He tells us about how he healed the majority of his Crohn's symptoms and how that extended into his dentistry practice. We really want to spread the video as much as possible so people know about the connection between dental health and overall health - but also to encourage seeing an integrative dentist!
