I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease at 25, and within two months lost 60 pounds, was near death, and then my Large Intestine perforated. I had a 3-stage "J-Pouch" procedure after the emergency removal of my large intestine, and then developed a Fistula, which I had for the next 14 years. I had four more surgeries to repair the Fistula, but they failed to resolve the issue. I am an American, living in California, and recently returned from my trip to India, where I underwent the Ayurvedic Ksharsutra therapy. The treament took 9 weeks, and now I am back home, free from Fistulas! I can hardly believe it's over. Getting to India was not nearly as difficult as I had thought it would be, and the trip truly changed my life in more ways than I could imagine. India is an exotic, untamed land, and full of amazing people and energy - a place I will NEVER forget. If anyone wants to know more about my trip and experience you can read a bit more about it here. I would love to share this incredible journey with you! It is so unbelievable to have my health and life back.
