Taking on Crohn's

Taking on Crohn's

The NutriBullet has made such a huge difference in my life after only using it for two weeks. I have Crohn's disease and have not been able to eat fruits, nuts and vegetables the "normal" way for more than 20 years.

When I am having a stricture – inflammation of the inside walls of the intestines – I normally go down to liquids and very, very soft foods. I have had surgery that removed part of my intestines so I am unable to digest many foods and multivitamins. My nutrition, needless to say, has been terrible… until I found the NutriBullet. On a painful day when I cannot eat solids, I normally would only be able to eat chicken broth with some scrambled eggs swirled in, some juices, and water. Now I can juice vegetables and fruits that I truly haven't eaten in almost 20 years because I was unable to digest them and also because of the pain they caused - especially anything raw. I can't tell you how this machine has changed my life. I have "anti-inflammatory" smoothie recipes and have been making them in the NutriBullet and have really been feeling much better than I was and am truly grateful I have found it!

I am feeling so much better physically and I'm relieved to know that I am now getting the nutrition I have been unable to get for years. I have encouraged others who suffer from Crohn's disease to try this fabulous machine to help in getting the nutrition we so desperately need. Thank you so much for improving the way I feel and making me able to get the nutrition I need, but was unable to get for so many years!

I purchased the NutribulletRx for my husband who has dealt with Crohn's disease for over 37 years. He had his large intestine removed 26 years ago and multiple re-sections over the years and has been having blockages from foods that shouldn't give him problems. I saw an advertisement for the Rx and thought I would give it a try. We have only had it a week and we love it. I have tried all different recipes and he hasn't had any issues so far. He hasn't been able to enjoy fresh fruit or vegetables in years. I am going to try the crohn's recipes and hopefully he will feel even better. I wish I would have seen the advertisement sooner.

I am so happy to hear that the nutribullet is beneficial for someone with Crohns. After 6 months of seeing commercials for nutribullet, I thought it could help me but then I became fearful that I would not be able to tolerate the raw vegetables. I was diagnosed with Crohns 32 years ago and because if a few resections of my small intestine, I struggle in eating healthy foods like fruits and vegetables. However, reading your comments have given me hope for the first time in 30 years that I maybe able to eat healthy again. I too would love to stay connected to people who have Crohns and share progress/ideas/recipes. Susan

Susan, i have Crohns Desease and Nutribullet has changed my life! I have not experienced any more pain or bloody stool since i started blasting. I love it my Nutribullet and their recepies!
Hi Kelly , I suffered from Colitis for some years. I had surgery 14 years ago and had most of my large intestine removed. I still have issues with inflammation in my body. I just started juicing . Haven't felt a major change as of yet. May I ask what you are juicing to feel better?
KCurry, Welcome to the Nutribullet family! I too am new to Nutribullet (about 3 weeks now) and I wish I would have bought one months ago! I love to experiment with recipes and would love to hear about any new ones you find or invent. Trina :)
I too am glad to hear from others with Crohn's who are using this product. Like Janine, I am now able to eat whole, raw foods and therefore nourish and heal myself. I can't believe the significant change one little kitchen tool has made in my life. I am happy to connect with others dealing with Crohn's or anyone with a passion for nutrition. I love to experiment with recipes!

I have had Crohns disease and Ulcerative Colitis since I was 13 years old and I am not 40. I have had several bowel resections and my large bowel completely removed. I just purchased Nutribullet today and I am tired of not getting the right nutrients. I am glad to see that the veggies and fruits that we never can eat, can be eaten by using the Nutribullet. I would love to connect with people who have Crohn's and compare ideas/recipes. Kelly Curry

Hi Kelly. I have had crohn desease for 20 years. I have had good days and horrible flare ups. I love breakfast and for many years eating my favorite meal of the day was torture. Immediately after eating i would experiece horrible cramps and had to go to the restroom. The pain was so bad that my face would turn red and started sweating, and lets not forget the orchestra of gurgling and whistling that coukd be heard on my belly. My co-workers have seen me suffer and have heard the loud noises in my stomach. Pretty embarrasing, since i started blasting, my life has changed. I immediately started with the recepies recommended for crohns desease, and oh boy, what a change! Now i venture to different blasts and i am loving it! I hope you are having the same espectacular experience i am having with the Nurtibullet!

I am glad to see that someone else with Crohns disease has used this with success. Mine arrived yesterday and I'm very excited to try it out. I hope it will do for me what it's done for you!
