Baby poop smoothies.  Have people heard of this?  It’s along the same lines as fecal transplants, where both are alternative treatments used to treat and even “cure” various bowel ailments from which people are desperate, absolutely desperate for relief.  People suffering from gastrointestinal dysfunction and disease are literally willing to eat, drink and/or rectally insert other people’s shit in order to make themselves feel better, and as a Crohn’s patient myself whose serious debilitating illness was not responding to conventional care, I understand what would move anyone to attempt drastic measures to relieve the pain and disability of a crippling gastrointestinal condition which can quickly make anyone’s life unbearable.

In my own case, I submitted to suffered through 2 years’ worth of ineffective and damaging Western medical treatment for my Crohn’s; the relentless agony of un- and undertreated Crohn’s disease was hellish and terrifying, and despite accepting treatment I was only getting worse.  When I saw what was happening to me, and that the path I was on would not lead to a good place, I took my health and life into my own hands and moved across the country alone to legally treat with medical cannabis, otherwise known as marijuana.  If I hadn’t done that, and was left to suffer through more Western medical treatments (or no treatment at all) I would have likely sought relief with various alternative treatments with little or no regard for their weirdness, offensiveness, or likelihood of success.  Although I had researched fecal transplants and found that they are not indicated for small bowel Crohn’s, which I have, I am sure that eventually I would’ve come across the concept of, and been tempted to try, the Baby Poop Smoothie.

A Family Member’s Response.

After reading your email, I just don’t see how your “treatment” has led you any where but down and out.  Your list of food and supplements are far more expensive than any working person can buy on a daily basis.

You haven’t seen a “traditional” doctor for 3 yrs or more.  And I’m not a supporter of anyone using weed as a treatment.  It will NOT help anyone seeking a cure, it may dull the pain…..but I’m not sure on that one either.  In the end you are still sick.

Now you need to do the work to get you back into the normal medical system and work with in that system for your future well fare.  Your way has not come to a workable end for you.  It has depleted and used up all of your time, talents and income. It’s taken you 3 years for it to come to this, now change course and bring yourself back to the surface.

My sister recently suggested that I send out an email blast to my mom’s side of the family to tell them what’s going on and to ask for help.  Since I have started flaring the last month or so, probably due to my increasingly poor diet and the stress of my situation and looming homelessness due to having expended all my personal resources on out-of-state lodging and treatment with medical cannabis, she thought I needed to ask for help buying supplements to boost my health and recover my energy and temporary assistance with living expenses.  From there, I don’t know what she had in mind except that without health and energy, there is no way I would be able to do anything and I very shortly will need to make a change as I will be unable to continue paying rent in a cannabis legal state.

For 2 days I received no replies whatsoever to my correspondence.  Today, this came.  This is from my mom’s sister, who is usually the spokesperson of the family so I assume this is their collective response.  I have not responded yet, and I may never, because what is there to say?  Let’s take it bit by bit.

How Much More Can My Heart Break? Testing Crohn’s Drugs on Animals & Does Radiation Cause Crohn’s?

When I was first diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, a confounding incurable and largely untreatable autoimmune disease, my treating doctor spoke to me in code.  He strongly suggested that I use my intelligence and research skills as an attorney to “research the treatments available” to me and at the time I didn’t understand what he meant.  Why couldn’t he just tell me about the treatments available for my condition himself?  I have since concluded that he was telling me that nothing in his arsenal was going to help me and that if I was going to be saved from a lifetime of medical and bodily horrors I would have to save myself.  I have now spent going on 6 years researching my condition and available treatments and I now believe that he was leading me towards discovering medical cannabis; I have indeed found profound pain relief and significant healing with medical cannabis, supplements and organic and fermented and organic foods, where I never found any relief at all from Western medical treatments that were only making me worse.

But in researching my condition and available treatments I have also exposed myself to countless “studies” in peer-reviewed medical journals describing horrific medical trials on animals where the animals were deliberately induced with what I now know is probably one of if not the most painful and debilitating conditions imaginable, inflammatory bowel disease.  And where Crohn’s treatments are largely ineffective for most Crohn’s patients anyway, and certainly do not reliably work long-term and can even make people sicker through various iatrogenic illnesses and injuries, I have to ask what is the point of all of this animal suffering in furtherance of an impotent Crohn’s Big Pharma arsenal that doesn’t even work?  Why is it so hard to find Crohn’s patients and other seriously ill people complaining about what is being done in research laboratories (animal incarceration facilities, and torture and death chambers) all over the world supposedly in our names and to benefit us?  And what is the effect on seriously ill people — on our conditions and on our bodies, minds, hearts and souls — where we know this is being done and we aren’t offered a reasonable opt-out of the necrophilic Western medical machine that perpetrates these horrors and doesn’t ask us or care what we think about it?
