I posted a message today detailing some of the herbal remedies I have tried (see "Here are Some Homeopathic Remedies I Have Tried".)
In general these homeopathic remedies have worked a lot better for me than Remicade, Asacol, Prednisone, etc and have been much less expensive. I was involved in clinical trials with Etanercept (sp) and am still paying off bills for remicade, which I took before I was out of college and was still uninsured.
I am a male and was 188 lbs football player in college before I got sick -- now my weight has stabilized at an anemic 150 lbs, but it dropped as low as 125 lbs before I was diagnosed. I recommend you get agressively on top of this problem before you lose anymore weight!
