I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease about 11 yrs ago. The medication was very expensive. Overseas they were having CF patients drink it for dietary needs and cutting down on inflammation in the bowel. Since reading that I keep coconut milk in my cabinet and drink 1 can a week. Since starting that I have only had 2 major flare ups, brought on by stress, then I just drank extra. It works great, I keep a frozen mug to pour it in.
