barelyalive,

just came across this forum via search. Where in NJ do you live? There are tons of Indian stores all over the state.
check out patelbros DOT com to see if this chain of indian supermarket is near you.
There are many others near Atlantic city in south, islin(edison), jersey city in north jersey.

Hi friends,

I am visiting the forum after a long time. Actualy since the last time I came to this forum, I have been keeping really well (touch wood). My BM has been normal, gastritis symptoms decreased, and the bet part - I gained a lot of weight without any supplementation. I did get bit gassy and acidity at times, but he requency has been just like what anyone wothout crohns would suffer, mainly due to the junk food or excesive alcohol at times, though I now I can easliy tolerate alocohol well i would say. I hope this continues and sorry for not posing for a long time. I now feel i should have posted regularly..but I guess this new life made me forget this great forum for a while and I becamse a bit selfish. So sorry again.

I am going for colonoscopy with biopsy in December (or may be earlier')..I am not expecting any miracles but I will continue my current lifestyle and just hoping for the best..will eep you guys posted.

One glass (350 ml approx) daily fresh bottle gourd juice what i did. Avoid it if you have stomach ulcers. Once thats healed you can take it.

Bottle gourd.
Are you still consuming it?

I have heard about that treatment before. I am studying Ayurveda and remember reading about it.

Also the Chinese version of Bitter Melon. Which I have juiced but it was "challenging" to say the least.

I am using several of the following methods too:

I know all these threads are old. But hopefully I can still get a reply from you Sid.
