Has your inflammatory bowel disease (irritable bowel syndrome) area been posted yet? Your "coming soon" indicated September of 1999. How do I find this?
I have had Crohns Disease for approx. 25 yrs. Most of my years have been in somewhat remission except for a few surgeries and flair ups from time to time. Associated Arthritis has been a problem. Anyway I was reading your article on integrated nutrition. I have been looking for a good nutrition supplement, I work hard, very active except for when I get run down. I usually have a poor appetite except when I am taking, the medication, prednisone. Any information or literature you can provide for me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
My son is 16 and is in wrestling and lifting weights. His coach recommended taking amino acid supplements. He started taking Amino Max (from a Max Muscle store in our area). He has been taking the recommended dose 5-6 capsules 2 - 3 X /day, but he has not been drinking the recommended 8 - 10 glasses of water, for 3 days and today he had a headache and nausea. Is this a side affect from the amino acid? Thank you for your response.
I have a young friend with Crohn's and I wonder if you have any information that specifically addresses EFA and that disease.He is very thin and best I can tell eats very little. He has had surgery. Based on some things I have read,I feel it would be of great value. Anything I can show him to encourage his use of EFAs?
My husband has just been diagnosed w/ celiac sprue. Please send me a copy of info and what diet needs to be followed.
I hope you can help answer my question. I am at a loss! I have Celiac disease and ulcerative colitis and mega food allergies. I am low in the amino acids Glutamic Acid, Glycine, Hydroxy-glutamic Acid, Methiionine, Tryptophane, Tyrosine. Were can I find these?? Do protein supplements have all of these in them? Or what foods could I eat to get these? My leg muscles are so so so skinny right above the knee and I cannot do any physical work I feel like passing out when I do. I want to exercise to strengthen them but my body says "NO" I have no stamina. I am on vitamins and minerals but am having a hard time finding a gluten free dairy free protein that has all the amino acids i need. HELP! Thanks so much for your time.
Hi--I suffer from Crohn's disease and fortunately I am not taking any medications. I have had surgery, however. Can you give me some info about Total Toddy please. Do you know if it is available in Israel?
