Barley Grass, Slippery Elm

I had Crohn's Disease 20 years and could not get well. The last flare up I was going to the Dr twice a day to get predisone in my veins and it was not working. This flare up lasted about 4 months. I learned about Barley Grass(capsules) so I took it and the bleeding stopped soon after. I continued to take barley grass and vitamins and later learned about Slippery Elm (herb) also.These herbs and vitamins healed me of this horrible flare up and I have not had another flare up since then. That was 12 years ago. Before this I flared up every year. I stopped drinking milk and caffeine (I drink soy milk). I am sharing this so people suffering with Crohns can read about these herbs. I give God the glory for this. I had prayed so earnestly for help with this horrible disease.
