Our Approach to Crohn's Disease
DR. COOK'S kits are designed to balance energetic, emotional, mental, physiological and immune responses of the individual to ensure long-lasting and permanent relief.* Dr. Cook's therapies are the evolutionary result of years of Homeopathic, Chinese, Ayurvedic, Synergetic and Biotech research.* The remedies facilitate the process of digestion by reducing the hypermotility of the intestines.* They help in replacing the proteins and nutrients that are flushed out due to excessive purging.* Sarcodes present in our kits help in rebuilding organ cells and improving immune functions.* The ingredients in the kits also provide relief from anxiety and stress, which are the main factors leading to this progressive disorder.*

About Crohn's Disease:
Crohn's Disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of unknown etiology. It affects the wall of the gastrointestinal tract. The single strongest risk factor for its development is a family history of the disease. The underlying cause could be an autoimmune reaction.
The disease is often insidious, slowly progressing with a protracted course, commonly affecting young adults in the second or third decade of life. Intermittent lower abdominal colic, diarrhea and weight loss are the presenting symptoms. Anal fissures are also commonly seen. Many cases of fistulas are also reported.
Crohn's Disease is a disease primarily affecting the gastrointestinal tract. It is one of the two major types of inflammatory bowel diseases -- the other being ulcerative colitis.
It also affects the skin, joints, eyes, liver, kidneys and pancreas.
Crohn's Disease can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus. Some 30-40% of patients suffering from Crohn's Disease have small intestine affections. 15-25% of patients have large intestine affections. In 75% of the patients with small intestinal disease, the terminal ileum (last part of small intestine) is involved.
In 90% of the patients, Crohn's Disease affects in a segmental pattern, i.e. some areas of the intestines are normal while some are diseased. Perirectal fistulas, fissures, abscesses and anal stenosis (narrowing) are present in 1/3 of patients with Crohn's Disease, particularly those with large intestine involvement.
The peak age of the onset of this disease is between 15 and 30 years. A second peak occurs between the age of 60 and 80 years.
Smoking is associated with a two-fold increased risk of this disease.
Oral contraceptives are also linked to Crohn's Disease -- the relative risk of this disease for oral contraceptive users is about 1.9 times that of normal individuals.
Genetic factors may play a role in Crohn's Disease. In normal individuals, the immune system in the inner layer of gastrointestinal tract, is inhibited to lumenal contents. In Crohn's Disease, this tightly regulated state of suppression of inflammation (a protective tissue response to injury or destruction of tissues) is altered, leading to uncontrolled inflammation. In Crohn's Disease, activated CD4+Tcells (cells of immune system) in the inner layer of the intestine and blood secrete inflammatory cytokines (constituents of immune system), which lead to inflammatory cascade and the flare up of the disease.
A role of measles virus or paramyxoviruses in the development of this disease has also been suggested.
Psychosocial factors can contribute to clinical exacerbation of symptoms. Major life events such as illness or death in the family, divorce or separation, interpersonal conflicts, or some other major loss are associated with an increase in symptoms such as pain, bowel dysfunction and bleeding.
Acute stress can exacerbate bowel symptoms, even after the major life events are under control.
Patients may have chronic history of recurrent episodes of right lower abdominal pain and diarrhea. Pain is usually colicky (spasm like); it precedes and is relieved by passing stools. Diarrhea is characteristic of active disease.
Patients may have nausea and vomiting.
Low grade fever is usually noted. High grade fever suggests abscess (pus) formation inside the abdomen.
Weight loss is common and develops as a consequence of diarrhea, anorexia (loss of appetite for food), and fear of eating.
A mass may be felt in the right lower side of the abdomen.
As the disease progresses, diarrhea decreases, and it eventually leads to chronic obstruction of the intestines and intractable constipation.
There may be malabsorption and steatorrhea (stools containing excess fat).
Intestines do not absorb nutrients and proteins well, hence leading to nutritional deficiencies.
Patients may have backbone fractures due to vitamin D deficiency and decreased calcium uptake.
Patients may have anemia (decreased amount of hemoglobin in blood) due to vitamin B12 deficiency.
Patients may develop narrowing of large intestine lumen, leading to symptoms of bowel obstruction.
Patients may develop incontinence of stools (involuntary passing of stools), large hemorrhoids (piles), anal strictures (narrowing of anus), anorectal fistula and perirectal abscess.
Diagnosis is made on the basis of symptoms given by the patient, clinical examination done by the physician and laboratory, and endoscopic and radiographic findings.
Blood tests reveal increased ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate) and increased C- reactive protein. In severe cases, patients have hypoalbuminaemia [decreased albumin (protein) in blood], anemiaand leucocytosis (increase in white blood cells).
Endoscopic findings of Crohn's Disease include rectal sparing, aphthous ulceration, fistulas and skip lesions. Endoscopic appearance correlates poorly with clinical remission of the disease, thus, repeated endoscopies are not used to monitor the inflammation.
Early radiographic findings of the small intestine include thickened folds and aphthous ulceration. The segmental nature of this disease results in wide gaps of normal or dilated bowel between involved segments.
CT scan findings include mural thickening > 2 cm, homogenous wall density, mesenteric fat stranding, perianal disease and adenopathy.
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) may prove superior for demonstrating pelvic lesions such as ischiorectal abscesses.
Perforation of the intestine is seen in 1 to 2% of patients
Peritonitis (inflammation of the inner layer of the abdomen)
Intestinal obstruction is seen in 40% of patients
Severe perianal disease
1. 5-ASA Agents: The main product in this category of drugs is Sulfasalazine. It has side-effects like allergic reactions, headache, anorexia, nausea and vomiting, rash, fever, hepatitis, pneumonitis, sperm abnormalities (reversible).
Olsalazine is a newer Sulfa-free aminosalicylate preparation used in Crohn's Disease, but, it may cause non-bloody diarrhea.
2. Glucorticoids like Prednisone, Hydrocortisone, Methyl-Prednisolone are used. These glucocorticoids lead to suppression of the functions of the adrenal gland, on prolonged administration. They have side-effects such as fluid retention, abdominal striae, fat redistribution, hyperglycemia, sub capsular cataracts, osteonecrosis, myopathy, and emotional disturbances.
3. Antibiotics like Metronidazole have side-effects such as nausea, metallic taste, and peripheral neuropathy. Another antibiotic used is Ciprofloxacin.
4. Azathioprine and 6-mercaptopurine: These agents cause side-effects like nausea, fever, rash, hepatitis, pancreatitis, and bone marrow suppression.
5. Methotrexate: It may cause leucopenia (decreased WBC), liver disorders and pneumonitis.
6. Cyclosporine: It acts by altering the immune response. This drug requires blood level monitoring. The common side-effects are hypertension, gingival hyperplasia, hypertrichosis, paraesthesias, tremors, headache and electrolyte abnormalities, and seizures.
Other newer drugs such as Infliximab, Tacrolimus, Mycophenolote Mofetil, Thalidoxide are under trial.
Most patients with Crohn's Disease require at least one operation in their lifetime. Patients with small intestine disease have an 80% likelihood of requiring surgery. Those with colitis alone, have a 50% likelihood. But, surgery does not help in the long-term.
