Crohn's was diagnosed in 1979 after 7 yrs of tests. I have had 3 bowel resections since. In 2009, a physician took the time to evaluate my blood, talked to me for 2 hours, and ordered a complete stool kit. As it turns out, I have candida overgrowth. I began probiotics, digestive enzymes, tart cherry juice, calcium/mag and liquid organic multiple vitamins and nine months later, all symptoms of crohn's vanished. I am thankful to the physician who helped me just when I was ready to give up. I weight 88 pounds and was wasting away. I hope everyone can find a doc who will listen.
