Crohn’s is a horrible disease to be afflicted with.
- Leading to frequent diarrhea
- Fever pain
- Constant fatigue
- Low energy
- And worse depending on how bad you’re suffering from it.
The goal is to soothe and reduce the inflammation.
I believe there’s nothing better than herbal remedies to treat this disease.
Let’s jump in…
Since Crohn’s is an inflammatory disease, you need to have a very alkaline, organic diet.
Gluten free, with no processed dairy.
This is different from the anti-inflammatory diet detailed in this course.
You need to cut sugar, caffeine, alcohol, artificial sweeteners… and some may even have to cut red meat.
While that’s common sense.
You also have to be very careful with high-fibre foods. You want to cook any fruits and veggies.
If you haven’t already, watch the video on “how to make a tincture”. It shows you step-by-step how to create any tincture.
Below will be a simple overview.
The ingredients I’m using today are all in powder form, so you’ll only have to fill your jar about a ⅓ of the way.
If these were still in a dried herb form, you’d want to fill up the jar about halfway.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom
This a type of mushroom that’s great for people suffering from Crohn’s disease.
Slippery elm is excellent for gut problems. This is also used in the leaky gut solution. If you haven’t watched that video and are suffering from Crohn’s disease, it’s highly recommended.
Peppermint is another great soother of the gut.
Commonly known to alleviate upset stomachs. It’s really good for any digestive discomfort.
|EASY ID: Peppermint plants are very easy to identify. They have a square stem and opposite thin leaves. Plus, it smells and tastes just like peppermint!|
Turmeric is a wonderful anti-inflammatory. Not just for your digestive tract, but across your entire body, including joints.
Fill the rest of your jar up with Vodka.
This doesn’t have to be Vodka. The idea is to use a liquid at least 30% alcohol. This allows for extraction of medicinal qualities from the herb, and preservation.
Cap “N” Label
Cap your solution and shake it up a bit to make sure there’s no dry herb left inside.
Take your jar and put it on a shelf for 2 months.
This will allow the Vodka to extract the herbs.
If you need the tincture QUICKLY, you can put the jar in a pot of water, and simmer for a few days.
But you have to be careful the tincture doesn’t boil, or else you’ll destroy and/or alter the medicinal compounds.
When you’re done. Strain it off with cheesecloth, and put in a dropper for easy use.
Take twice a day.
Again, for a more in-depth guide on this, check out the “How to make a tincture” video.

Aloe vera helps coat your gut helping food move through more quickly.
Bone broth is extremely easy to digest and places no strain on your digestive system.
Providing soothing, anti-inflammatory and nutrient rich substances to your intestinal tract.
This gives you a healthy dosage of good bacteria helping breakdown food and speeding up digestion.
There is research showing the fish oils (from Omega-3s) can have anti-inflammatory effects on digestive tracts.
Studies have shown that Vitamin D can relieve the fatigue and decreased muscle strength people with Crohn’s suffer from.
You can also put this in a tea.
Using all of the ingredient you put in the tincture put them in a teapot with hot water instead.
Let it all steep for at least 10 minutes and serve.
You can even make extra, and simply heat it up everyday.
Take it three times a day, and you should notice a definite reduction in your Crohn’s Symptoms.
Do that, along with a change in the supplements mentioned and you should notice an almost immediate reduction in your Crohn’s symptoms.
It’s a horrible disease to suffer from.
I wish you the best of luck on your journey.
Until next time…
