Have healing problem: Wrong foods can prevent you from healing. For next three weeks eliminate cereals, juices, sodas, corn products, banana, and pineapples. Also most patents that go to plant base protein feel much better. So eliminate chicken, turkey, beef and pork. See your doctor to have your Thyroid checked. Add folic acid 400 mcg and Vit D3 2000 U. to daily food. Just remember D3 is fat soluble.

Stop Yoga: Depends on what you do exactly in Yoga. Some of the Exercises are not for every one,.Some put a lot of stress on the lower back. Please check with your doctor. Meanwhile you can hang from a pull up bar for 10 second twice a day and do crunches and do not bend to do things, until you are cleared by your doctor.

My post had nothing to do with Crohn's disease and your response had nothing to do with my question. Stay on topic.
