Crohn's Disease – What is It?

Crohn's Disease is a digestive system disease. It is also known as an autoimmune disease because it occurs when your immune system attacks your gastrointestinal tract.

Now based on those two statements alone, any rational person should be able to assume that this is a curable disease. Curable because you can choose what you put into your mouth and thus choose what will not make it into your intestinal tract.

And if that is the case, why are millions of people still suffering from the appalling effects of Crohn's Disease? Well, lets see what the experts have to say.

Most doctors will tell you that the actual cause of Crohn's Disease is unknown and that there is no cure, as they continue to prescribe pill after deadly pill to treat the rashes, sore throats, diarrhea, severe muscle pain, weakness, cramps, vomiting and headaches. Yet most people who obediently swallow these pills and explanations, rarely get better and some have even reported getting sicker over time. So what, exactly, do we know about Crohn's Disease?

The Intestinal Tract

We know that the intestinal tract has well over 400 different species of bacteria. They begin to develop in the human body with the first sip of our mother's milk. Some are helpful, some are harmful, and some are both, yet indispensable to a healthy digestive system.

All of these bacteria exist in the intestine of a healthy person in peace and harmony. Each doing the job it was programmed to do as long as they are in balance. Crohn's Disease occurs when this balance is disturbed. So what could possibly disturb this not-so-delicate balance? An overabundance of any one specific bacteria is usually the culprit.

One of our most beloved comfort-foods, carbohydrates, play an enormous role in feeding certain bacteria in our digestive tract. Carbohydrates that are not fully digested and absorbed will remain in our stomachs and become food for the bacteria living there. These microbes digest this unused food using fermentation. By definition, fermentation is the conversion of carbohydrates into alcohols or acids under anaerobic conditions. Anaerobic simply means airless.

The problem arises from the waste products of this process. Fermentation in the stomach produces gases such as methane, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen. It also produces lactic acid and acetic acid as well as other toxins as by-products. These are all irritants to the human body. Evidence shows that feeding some of the benign and helpful bacteria in this way may cause them to mutate into the more harmful types.

As the well-fed bacteria continues to multiply, the fermentation process increases and so does your bodily discomfort. As the situation worsens, natural enzymes in the stomach that aid in food digestion are destroyed by the bacteria, which greatly aids the bacteria in its quest to grow as large as it possibly can.

As this condition begins to spiral out of control, the brain sends a signal to your white blood cells to lock and load. But by the time the cavalry arrives, the protective layer of mucus surrounding the small intestine is gone and the small intestine is laid bare. The last defense between what we eat and our bloodstream has been breached.

The chronic pain has set in. The diarrhea has started. And the disease has begun.

The Cure

So now, in acute pain and weak because you can't keep anything down, nor anything in, you see your doctor and he tells you that you have Crohn's Disease and there is no cure. As he dutifully prescribes you six different medications for your myriad of symptoms, you accept this diagnosis and begin trying to rearrange the rest of your life near a bathroom.

Or you ask someone else. Someone who does not receive any royalties from the pharmaceutical companies. You ask someone who does not have a stake in keeping you sick.

Money Is In The List

When we start our businesses on the Internet we have ideas thrown at us from Gurus as well as Newbies. Everyone says they know how to get rich overnight. I have read hundreds of different ideas to get rich quick and have come up with a great list of them to share.

Whether you are into EBay, Affiliate Marketing, or selling your own product or service you need customers. You want them to be repeat customer's. What it comes down to is the list. How do we get that list? It is enough to drive me nuts. I do like nuts though, especially walnuts and filberts.

  1. Spend your money on buying customers from a list company such as: Guaranteedlists or SalesGenie. But how do you know if any of the subscribers match your customer profile or if they really want to opt in to hear from you?
  2. There are several list building services that are Free. But if you want real action you will need to upgrade, with money. Here are a couple I found: Listbandit and I haven't gotten any yet with the free status. I have to admit I haven't focused on this method much so you might do better.
  3. Exposure: Getting your name out there. Great exposure entails several list building methods.
  • A website with a blog or a Blog service like: Blogger or WordPress where you can have links to your product's squeeze or landing page to hopefully capture leads to send to your auto responder that sends out your follow-up messages.
  • Article Marketing:, and are a few who accept articles for publication and distribution to hundreds of sites that give you exposure. Within the article and resource box you will place your back links (links that send the reader to your Blog or Website where your product and / or affiliate links are.) Be sure to read the Editorial Guidelines carefully! I have made several errors so far, that is how I learn.
  • Forums: Go to, or to post your thoughts and place your back links there but usually only in your signature box. They have many rules as well I nearly lost my privileges at one. No affiliate links. That inspired me to finally get my own website with a WordPress blog. It feels good too. I am anxious to build some pages when I figure out how. I wander.

I know I have left out other methods for list building but I am doing research in them so when I learn enough I will share my knowledge with you all. Those include AdSense and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to name a couple.

Stay Focused! I can't stress enough the importance of staying focused on 2 or 3 of these methods at a time and work them till you have saturated the market with yourself. It is up to you and the time you are able to give to the business.

One more tip I would like you to consider. When those customers start signing up treat them like gold because they are the golden opportunity of your business. Invoke this golden rule "Do unto your customers that you as a customer would like to be treated."
