Listen to your body: As a mind-body doctor, a person living with crohn's, and a counselor for people with chronic illness, i believe most important is to listen to your body and respond appropriately. If you are fatigued, or in pain, and you keep moving forward without changing how you are in the world, why should your body change? Seek out healers who can teach you how to decrease stress levels. It can really help.

Gut disease: This is a serious, troublesome, incurable, chronic disease usually involving the gut, causing the wall to thicken and become blocked. The new biotech medicines have made it much easier to treat than in the past. You may hear it called "regional enteritis" or "terminal ileitis"; the latter doesn't mean it's terminal in the sense that it's usually fatal.
