    Has anyone else experienced chills and/or a low night time body temperature from your Remicade?

    I'll look up antipyretics. Thanks. I was on Entyvio for a couple of months with about a two month period between stopping the Entyvio then going back on Remicade (which I voluntarily stopped a few years ago because I thought I was in remission). This might be a Thyroid problem. I just had...

    Has anyone else experienced chills and/or a low night time body temperature from your Remicade?

    I just had my second dose of Remicade and although it has been working, every night I get chills and a low body temperature (95.5). Have any of you experienced this? Thanks.

    Why Don't GI Doctors Take The Role Of Diet Seriously?

    Grains, seeds, nuts and legumes are absolute poisons. The exceptions include properly prepared, well-fermented sour dough bread and oatmeal that has been soaked long enough to get most of the phytic acid out of it. But plants put most of their defenses in their "children" or seeds and nuts...

    Ingredients in Biologics

    Some of my blood markers have improved a bit, but I have literally read a couple of hundred posts on this forum and Drugs.Com plus Entyvio's website and have experienced "before and after" infusion symptoms: Its fairly common for people to have severe diarrhea, cramps, on and off fever and...

    Ingredients in Biologics

    I wonder if the inflammatory additives are responsible for many of the post-infusion side-effects people on biologics often report? I am going to read up on exact ingredients in Entyvio because it has increased my inflammation.

    Why Don't GI Doctors Take The Role Of Diet Seriously?

    Thank you again for your information, Hopeful Girl, and for reminding me about dry brushing for the Lymphatic system, which I have to get back into. Whatever legitimate detox methods are out there should speed up the clearance of the Entyvio from my body: This is not a hypochondrical thing for...

    Why Don't GI Doctors Take The Role Of Diet Seriously?

    Anti-Nutrients: I printed this article out a few months ago. Plants can not move as animals can, so to protect their offspring (seeds and nuts) and themselves, they evolved toxins which interfere with the digestion, protein synthesis, reproductive abilities and other functions of the insects and...

    Why Don't GI Doctors Take The Role Of Diet Seriously?

    Thank you for this. There is no way in hell that doctors in the United States do not also get a cut when they prescribe biologics to patients. What you quotes MUST BE the tip of the iceberg as far as the corruption goes, but even though you do hear about some doctors losing their license...

    Why Don't GI Doctors Take The Role Of Diet Seriously?

    Thanks so much for going into detail on the dietary regimen that has worked for you. What kind of problems did meat give you? Do you take any supplements, or do you get all of your micronutrients from your diet? From what I've learned, a vegan diet high in carbs is inflammatory, but if you...

    Why Don't GI Doctors Take The Role Of Diet Seriously?

    If your GI doctor had a conscience, he would at least be openly happy that you are healthier now. I have no proof, but I would be shocked if GI (and other doctors) did not get some kind of percentage when they put a patient on expensive biological therapies, and most people are too brainwashed...

    Former Entyvio Patients: How Long Did It Take For Your Side-Effects To Go Away?

    My third and last infusion of Entyvio was one month ago and after every dose the side-effects became progressively worse. My symptoms from Entyvio have included: -Severe fatigue including low endurance/stamina -Bloating, on and off severe diarrhea (including fatty stool) -Body temperature...

    Why Don't GI Doctors Take The Role Of Diet Seriously?

    Thank you for the laugh! Its funny that you wrote, "its a dog's life" because I was speaking to a worker at Whole Foods yesterday who is vegan and feeds his dog a fully vegan diet. I will reintroduce eggs in a week or two to see what happens, but until my GI tract heals (God wiling), I am...

    Why Don't GI Doctors Take The Role Of Diet Seriously?

    Soaking oats makes them far easier to digest and be used for energy by the body because it removes most of the phytic acid, plus it makes the oats taste much better. The sheer libraries worth of nutrition misinformation and disinformation (thanks to some industry and government biased studies...

    Iron IV treatment

    Thanks very much. With Crohn's there can be multiple causes of fatigue: Anemia, the energy used up because the GI tract is inflammed (I just learned this), food allergies or intolerances (e.g. dairy and/or grains for some), the stress and/or depression IBD can cause, malabsorption of vital...

    Iron IV treatment

    I'm going to see a Hematologist at the end of the month. What form of IV Iron did you get? A couple people on this board have recommended Iron Sucrose as the best as far as potential side-effects go. I've been eating liver for about four days a week and usually cook my meals in a cast iron...

    Why Don't GI Doctors Take The Role Of Diet Seriously?

    What types of foods have you had on the Carnivore diet? A lot of dairy and eggs? Have you eaten low-carb vegetables and/or fruits and if so, were they raw or steamed? Please leave a link or two for how the Carnivore diet is high in oxalates (red meat). I know that Spinach and Chard are...

    Why Don't GI Doctors Take The Role Of Diet Seriously?

    I have zero proof if Gastroenterologists actually get a cut of the IV and injectable biologics that they prescribe, but to be honest, I would not be surprise. I do not mean to sound bitter, but reading your post reminded me of how the NP pushed the Entyvio (with the big pharama explanation) as...

    Why Don't GI Doctors Take The Role Of Diet Seriously?

    I am glad to hear that you have benefited from the specific carbohydrate diet, Wildbill. Corn and rice are grasses and filled with anti-nutrients, but when people have white rice (no husk and zero fiber & nutrients) they have no problems digesting them. Do you soak your oats in a diluted apple...

    Should I Go Back On Prednisone?

    I have Crohn's Colitis with tenesmus,bloating, gas, diahrrea, cramps in the lower abdomen, anemia (Hemocrit of 9.4), on and off bright red blood and white mucous in the stool with fatty stool (stetorrhea) nearly every night. I've had an upper MR Enterography which ruled out serious problems in...
