include: Diarrhea, blood and mucus in stool, abdominal cramps, joint pain (lower back and knees), nausea, rashes, weight loss, anemia, inflammation of the eyes and many others. As you can tell this is not a fun disease to suffer from. At this point the medical establishment does state that the disease is not caused by diet and lifestyle. The medical system treats crohn's disease symptoms by using powerful anti-inflammatories, steroids, immunosuppressants, and surgeries. There is no known cause to the disease but components such as: autoimmune (body attacks itself), gut flora imbalance (more bad bacteria than good), and genetics all seem to play a role of some sort. There have not been any significant improvements to treating this disease in the last 60-70 years. This is because there is no "single" disease causing agent so they will be looking forever. I believe that a variety of the above mentioned components cause the disease and some things that are still yet unknown. Although the medical establishment has lagged behind with treatments the alternative side has done a great job providing protocols that have helped many people achieve med free status or aka sustained remission. Many people have been very successful at improving their conditions using diet modifications, and lifestyle changes. Everywhere we see IBD info we see the strictly the medical side but it's about time we get to see the alternative side. The truth is we must know we all have options and we should research them before deciding on "our" treatment
