New to this forum.

I have had Crohns disease for most of my life (20yrs+) I currently have no health insurance. I lost it 3 yrs ago when I was fired because of this disease. Couldnt prove it and to sick at the time to fight it. I am now self employed. I moved to Oklahoma to help my parents and currently live with them. I have no health insurance and cant afford it. I have no doc to treat this I do the best I can with homepathic remedies and probiotics.
Thats my story

Tina.

I very sorry to hear that Tina, I hope it is of some comfort being with your family, and hopefully you will find a new job with a far more understanding community.
Thinking of you and best of luck x

It work better then meds when I can afford it. And no side effects. It takes longer to start working. So its not an instant fix. I am happy with it.

I hope you feel better Kermit976! It's so unfair to not have health insurance, and I think you are very brave!

I am not sure if you understand how homeopathics work but what work for me may not work for you and visa versa.
Vertrum Alb 30x, Merc Viv 30x, Podophyllum 30x, i take these three when I am in flare up as per label instuctions. Silica 6x, Ferrum Phos 6x, Natrum Phos 6x theses are cell salts. I take 10 of each per day in water I sip throughout the day.
You can get them from 1800homeopathy.com. Theirs is regulated by the Hpus. And I trust them.

Thats what I is take when I can afford it and they work. Also a good probiotic, prebiotic.
