This is the best depiction for Crohn’s I’ve seen.

This is the best depiction for Crohn’s I’ve seen.

I’m getting tired of people wanting me to drink. Even people close to me who know that I don’t drink always offer. I’m sure it’s because they just want me to feel included and to join in there “fun” drinking banter but I’m fine not drinking.

I haven’t had a drink in 1 year and 4 months and it’s great. It’s not the miracle cure, it’s it’s not cured me of my various illnesses and diseases but all in all it empowers me to feel confident in the fact that I practice sobriety.

Sometimes I do feel a bit left out, but it’s no ones fault that I can’t confidently stroll into a dark, sticky night club with out my beer googles on. I’m much happier going to music venues, food festivals and movies and I’m totally fine with that…

It does take time to adjust and after a year I’m still not comfortable being around people who are drunk, I don’t know if I ever will be but that’s something I’ll work out over time.

Are you sober out of choice to?

After reading this, you’ll never look at a banana in the same way again.

Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world’s leading athletes.

But energy isn’t the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

DEPRESSION:
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS:
Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

ANEMIA:
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

BLOOD PRESSURE:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit’s ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

BRAIN POWER:
200 students at a Twickenham school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

CONSTIPATION:
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

HANGOVERS:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

HEARTBURN:
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

MORNING SICKNESS:
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

MOSQUITO BITES:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

NERVES:
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system..

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

ULCERS:
The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chroniclercases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL:
Many other cultures see bananas as a ‘cooling’ fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals.. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, ‘A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!’

How I cut out dairy

A lot of the people around still find it mad that I’m a vegan but even more bewildering to them is how I cut out milk and cheese.

"But were are you going to get your protein and calcium from?" & "How can you not eat chocolate!?" they say!

I’m going to tell you how I did it.

1) I swapped milk for soya milk.

I’m not going to lie, I loved milk. I drank crazy amounts of it since I was little but giving it up was the best thing for my diet I’ve ever done. When I turned 20 I made the switch from dairy to soya. It made a big difference and was really really easy. Taste wise I enjoyed the creaminess of milk and soya was a great subsistent. To me its soya is just as creamy as dairy milk is. (and its much better for you too!)

2) I did my home work.

Not only is dairy full of anti-biotic’s (which have been linked with the cause of Crohns) it’s full of pus and blood! The cattle industry is truly appalling and upsetting. You can find videos and films all about how awful it truly is. 

I’ve also done a full post on the effects of dairy and IBD which you can find if you scroll down my blog!

3) I started cooking at home.

There’s an amazing site called http://www.yummly.co.uk/ where I find most of my recipes. But honestly I’m a plain Jane. I like simple foods that are easy to prepare. I used to smoother everything in cheese, pasta, pizza, sandwiches, potatoes. Its hard to know what to do with out it. But guess what.. everything stops tasting like cheese! You get to know the real flavours of food rather then the cheese flavoured version of it and your body thanks you!!

If your really craving cheese a great substitute I found for cheese is called Nutritional Yeast. 

Eating out initially is hard, you do get the hang of it and find places that suit your dietary needs.

That’s all from me for now. Let me know if your already dairy free or are going to ditch the dairy!?

Get the BBC to apologise to #IBD sufferers for false junk food claims →

If you’ve got Crohn’s disease and you live in the UK like me, your probably a bit pissed off. But for all my followers in different parts of the world, here’s what’s going on in the news.

No definitive research has ever suggested that crohns diseased is caused by eating a lot of junk food.

BBC news was suppose to raise awareness for thousands of people on the effects of fatigue and IBD but instead chose to base the majority of the segment on junk food.

Junk food is bad for everyone bar none. It is the most obvious fact in our modern day world. Junk food can cause   some types of diabetes, acne and other illnesses but has no impact on whether or not you develop Crohn’s disease. 

Junk food can worsen your already apparent crohns but can not make you more susceptible to getting it. If you have it, you have it! You can be treated, some cases are worse then others and there is are obvious diet recommendations but all in all if you have crohns it will most likely come out between the ages of 18-25 or 45-60.

Having a talk on the impacts of fatigue and IBD would have been a great media outlet to provide employers, friends and family more information on this very important symptom on the disease. 

It makes me angry, upset and quite frankly pissed off that the interview had such a strong lean towards the impacts of junk food. 

Junk food impacts us all, don’t eat it or you will probably get Crohn’s disease was the basis of the interview. What a load of crap.

I could go on for ever on this subject, about how if they were going to base the interview on the causes on crohns disease they should have talked about the dairy industry, but heaven forbid they say anything about a multi billion pound establishment.

Rant over, comment as you will, what are your thoughts?

It’s a joint decision

Does anyone else suffer with knee pain, wrist ache or any joint pain?

I do.. and it’s getting really annoying. I’ve up’d my dosage of calcium & vit D but so far that’s not changing things.

I’ve been doing some research and I think I’ve done the terrible thing of self diagnosing myself with “Periperal Arthritis” 

Peripheral arthritis usually affects the large joints of the arms and legs, including the elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles. The
discomfort may be “migratory,” moving from one joint to another. If left untreated, the pain may last from a few days to several
weeks. Peripheral arthritis tends to be more common among people who have ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease of the colon.
The level of inflammation in the joints generally mirrors the extent of inflammation in the colon. Although no specific test can
make an absolute diagnosis, various diagnostic methods—including analysis of joint fluid, blood tests, and X-rays—are used to
rule out other causes of joint pain. Fortunately, IBD-related peripheral arthritis usually does not cause any lasting damage and
treatment of the underlying IBD typically results in improvement in the joint discomfort

Does anyone else have this? Can anyone give me some advise or treatment recommendations?

IBD Community !

Scrolling through the many IBD pages I follow has been pretty depressing of late and it’s kinda bugging me, I know how shit life can be and I know how therapeutic a rant is now and then but guys we need to brighten up our IBD community !

Finding out I was not alone in this world of tummy aches and heartbreaks was the best thing that happened to me but when your a newbie, there’s only so much “I pooed myself 1989022 times today and now I’m on steroids and I hate myself” that you can handle before you get freaked, stressed and you guessed it, in a flare !

We need to look after the growing number of sufferers with IBD by not scaring them but helping them ! Sharing your individual symptoms is fine but its your story, your motivational “We can do this” spirit that the community needs.

Some people are lucky, some people are sad, some people are healthy, some people are poor. We all have our good times and bad, but lets try and stay as positive as possible!

You may have been dealt a crappy hand of cards, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bluff your way right into a royal flush !

Keep talking to each other, keep sharing your experiences and keep the peace <3
