Today we are talking about hyperbaric oxygen therapy for inflammatory bowel disease. This is a hot topic with some studies suggesting efficacy in both Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Recently there has been interest in using it for hospitalized patients with severe ulcerative colitis. We speak with Dr. Scott Sherr who is a physician with training in internal medicine and also practices health optimization medicine. He has a subspecialization in utilizing hyperbaric oxygen for various conditions and today shares his insights and experience using it off-label for inflammatory bowel disease.
As a disclaimer - this is not an endorsement of this therapy for inflammatory bowel disease since it is still being studied and efficacy has not been established. It is not FDA approved to treat IBD at this time. You must discuss all treatment decisions with your physicians.

We venture into the realm of complementary and alternative medicine(AKA CAM) for Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. These include various diets, supplements, and other lifestyle interventions that are not part of the standard of care.
Today we speak to Reid Kimball who has made a documentary called Wanted: Crohn’s End which is one of the most comprehensive investigations into complementary and alternative treatments for IBD that I have seen.
His documentary can be found at http://crohnsend.com/

As a disclaimer - this is a frank conversation about what he has learned and his personal experience. This is by no means a recommendation of any of these therapies for you. Any CAM treatment you decide to try should be discussed with your treating gastroenterologist first.

We catch up with a patient who recently had surgery for severe ulcerative colitis. We talk about his experience and his decision regarding if he should get a J pouch. We also address prior criticisms about how we discussed the Specific Carbohydrate Diet on the prior podcast.

A conversation with a friend with ulcerative colitis (possibly Crohn's colitis) who is now facing surgery. He tried his best to avoid it including implementing some very unconventional things - diet, fecal transplant, a medication called Xeljanz (prior to FDA approval) and even hyperbaric oxygen therapy. He shares his insights and we will follow-up with him post surgery.
