3 Reasons to Get a Second Opinion about Crohn's and Colitis Treatments

1. One in ten Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBD) patients are under the age of 18.

IBD and other disorders such as Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are growing among children. Dealing with these diseases immediately can change your child's life.

2. The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) has entirely “ruled out” diet as a contributing factor

Instead, the CCFA recommends drugs such as corticosteroids like prednisone, aminosalicylates, immunomodulators, antibiotics, and surgery. These medications have many side effects ranging from diarrhea to seizures. Surgery is invasive and dangerous.

3. The CCFA claims there is no known cure for Crohn's and Colitis

The CCFA is a business, funded by pharmaceutical corporate sponsors. There is a lot of money to be made in research, development and sales of medication and surgery techniques.
