Are new Crohn’s Disease Medications Worth The Side Effect Risks?

Crohn’s Disease and Colitis can rule your life.  Crohn’s is not easy to live with.  According to the Mayo Clinic, Crohn’s Disease” Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It causes inflammation of your digestive tract, which can lead to abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss and malnutrition.”  This is painful and for many can be debilitating.  So when you see new commercials on tv that outline new Crohns Disease Medications, you feel like there is hope.

One of the newer medications that has been advertised to treat Crohn’s disease is Humira.  Humira does have side effects that include serious infections, so it is important to balance the pros and the cons.  Another medication is Remicade with similar side effects.  I am certainly not a doctor and can’t tell you what is best for you.  Only you and your doctor can decide that.  However as I get older, I have learned that prescription medications are not without risk.  If I can change my diet or do something that can improve symptoms, that is certainly something I would consider.

It is for this reason that I am sharing this with you.  My family has been eating Beyond Beyond Healthy Chocolates for over 7 years.  We have noticed great benefits to our health especially with specific chronic health conditions.  This is no ordinary chocolate.  This is as close as you can get to raw chocolate or raw cacao in my book.  The chocolate is not heated which is important because that means it keeps in all the antioxidants and cocoa flavanols that are so good for you.  Unfortunately cooking or dutching chocolate, which is done with traditional chocolates, causes much of the chocolate health benefits to be lost. (Similar to overcooking your vegetables.)  For this reason you have to look at more than just the percentage of chocolate but also how the chocolate is processed.  The Beyond Beyond Healthy Chocolate uses a patented process not available to other chocolate makers.  The antioxidants found in just one piece of our chocolate is over 5 times the amount of any other chocolates I could find on the market.  Check it out for yourself.

Below is a video from the CEO of Well-Beyond, (Owners of Beyond Beyond Chocolate) Jeremy Reynolds, with his personal story about his Crohn’s Colitis.  He has been able to manage his symptoms with this Healthy Chocolate.  Why not give it 30-60 days and see if you notice a difference.  We highly recommend the Beyond Xobiotic Chocolate with probiotics.  Enjoy 3-5 pieces a day, spaced out.  Each individually wrapped Xobiotic chocolate is just 30 calories!
