    What other treatments are there for Crohns?

    I am running out of options with my current Gastro and would like to be advised if any non standard treatments are been administered and by whom.

    I hear a lot of other options on the internet including the following.

    - Medical Marijuana
    - Parasites
    - Site Specific imodulators
    - Or anything else I can try

    I am currently taking Humira. But have tried everything else.

    Before I decide to go under the knife and have bowel removed.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    My research interests include immunology and the mechanisms of amyloid formation. The latter has implications for people who are dealing with Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease … View Profile

    One option that you could discuss with with your care team is Infliximab. It is an antibody, made using recombinant DNA methods, which can help in blocking the inflammatory response associated with Crohn's Disease. It works in same general way as Humira (another antibody) but if Humira is not helping you then Infleximab might be worth trying.
    Infliximab is a listed medication on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme for Crohn's Disease and its cost is therefore subsidised.

    Thank you for your post however I have tried Infliximab, with an anaflaxic reaction. I have tried all kinds of medications. I am seeking something that is not mainstream that may be worth trying.

    LDN (Low dose naltrexine)
    MAP treatment ie antibitoics - Dr Borody -
    Facel Microscopic transplant.  - Dr Borody -

    good luck  with it I hope you found some thing that works. 

    I have tried numerous treatments for my  Ulcerative colitis and also running out of options but I am currently doing treatment for MAP with dr borody and I have notice a slight improvement I am also on methotrexate weekly injections.  I have finally gotten myself of prednisone after 2 years being on it so that is a good sign for me.
