People living with Crohn’s disease will experience pain, and this can be caused by a number of factors, including:

  • Inflammation
  • When recovering from a surgical operation
  • Poor diet

The quality of life of those living with this disease, on an ongoing daily basis, can be significantly affected. People may also experience anxiety, especially when their pain cannot be controlled for a number of days at a time. It is important to work closely with your doctor in order to help keep the pain under control, by using pain management strategies.

In the case of Crohn’s disease, pain can initially start in the form of mouth sores, rectal pain, sore joints and cramps. Should this happen, you must contact your pain team and work together to minimise any discomfort. With the support of your pain team, you can also identify the medications most suitable for you, so as to stop pain and flare-ups from occurring. It is best to always take the advice given by your doctor on the most appropriate treatments that can work for you.

New research is now showing that alternative medications and therapies work well in keeping the pain associated with Crohn’s disease and regular flare-ups under control. These include:

Mindful meditation—

Body scan meditation


Give up smoking

Staying healthy

Taking a good multivitamin supplement

Drinking plenty of water

Selecting the correct cleaning products, such as sensitive wipes

Using soft towelettes to ease anal irritation

Taking a warm salt water bath to soak up and help relieve any soreness or itching, as well as to help with joint discomfort

Using a medicated mouthwash to prevent mouth ulcers (caused by flare-ups)

Working with a physiotherapist can be most effective, as a good therapist can teach you how to do the correct exercises to relieve pain from your joints and back, and he or she can also show you a wide range of motions that will keep you healthy, fit and pain-free

Always ask your doctor about alternative ways to control your pain, as unfortunately many people are becoming addicted to pharmaceutical medication, and, over time, the body can become immune to their effects.

Getting plenty of rest and exercising regularly may appear to be contradictory advice; however, the combination of both can help you to find a happy medium, in order to help minimise the pain of living with Crohn’s disease.

Adopting a common sense approach, taking treatments, as required, and working closely with your doctor is always advisable. This will help to keep your symptoms under control, prevent complications from developing in the first place or stop your illness from getting worse.

Eye pain and Crohn’s disease

Crohn’s disease can affect your eyes and can cause significant pain. Therefore, it is very important  so visit an eye specialist at least once a year to help prevent sight problems from developing. Simply using eye drops can help to manage your symptoms and protect your eyes from inflammation.

Abdominal pain and Crohn’s disease

Talking to a dietitian can help you to plan healthy and balanced daily meals. Knowing what foods to avoid will help you to stay pain-free. Some foods can cause abdominal pain, and taking prescribed medication to alleviate this kind of pain may only make you feel worse. Eating small meals and less fatty foods can help to control your stomach pain and nausea. Always check with your dietitian first before introducing any changes to your diet.

Skin pain caused by Crohn’s disease

Crohn’s disease flare-ups can cause skin tags, sores and sensitive skin around the anus. The following may help:

  • Try keeping the anal area clean and dry, and wear loose underwear to avoid irritating the skin
  • Use a natural moisturiser
  • Use unscented soap
  • Use alternative creams, with no active ingredients

Pain caused by dehydration

People living with Crohn’s disease can get dehydrated if they do not drink enough fluids, which can then cause pain. The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America have recommended drinking half an ounce of fluids for every pound of body weight, on a daily basis. Making sure to keep your body well-hydrated is good for your skin and it also helps to wash out any toxins from your body that may cause flare-ups and pain. If you think you are feeling dehydrated, it is best to speak to your doctor straight away, as he or she can prescribe medication to help alleviate your symptoms, for example, dioralyte.

Chi Detox Patches are a unique, non-invasive way to help detox the whole body. Each patch contains a unique formula of highly purified powder extract of a blend of herbs and minerals used in Chinese Medicine. They target the reflex points under our feet, which have 62 acupuncture points.

Botanical Syrup the solution to a stubborn cough

Irish Botanica Botanical Syrup has helped many to find relief for the first time from a stubborn cough

Irish Botanica Botanical Syrup is a cough remedy that I told you about last year. Many of you who tried it found it amazing and got relief for the first time from a stubborn cough. But, unfortunately, the suppliers ran out of stock and left many of you disappointed that you couldn’t try it for yourself. Nobody could have predicted the demand. The good news is that it’s back in stock and your local health store should be able to order it in for you.

Botanical Syrup was developed by Medicinal Herbalist David Foley. Botanical Syrup contains herbs which can help ease all stubborn and difficult to shift coughs, clear congestion, decrease mucus, and relieve the symptoms of asthma, hay fever, and bronchitis. What’s great about the blend is that as well as the herbs to treat coughs it also contains Vitamin C, Liquorice and Ginseng which are included for their immune supporting properties and also their ability to relieve the effects of stress on the body.

It’s a fantastic combination of herbs which work well together including White Horehound which can decrease and thin the mucus in the bronchial tubes and lungs.

Mullein is used to help clear congestion and phlegm. Plantain eases sore throats, coughs, and bronchitis. It protects and strengthens the lining of the throat and lungs. Cinnamon is included for its mild antiseptic properties. Ginseng will help your body cope with stress and at the same time it will support immune function helping you to stay well. Aniseed helps clear mucus from the airways, and adds the flavour to the mix. Liquorice will help to reduce dryness and has an anti-spasmodic effect helping to ease a cough.

Last year I had amazing feedback from people all around the country. Many of you also told your friends and family about how effective it was. I would say that approx. 8 out of 10 people who tried it got relief from a stubborn cough. So I’m happy to remind you of it so you can see if it can help you too. Remember to check with your doctor if you’re on medication.

If you too have a stubborn cough then it might be worth your while trying this remedy, Botanical Syrup, it’s a fantastic Irish made product
