CLEARWATER, Fla., May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Crohn’s Disease is a terrible disease that affects millions of people each year. It is a chronic digestive disorder that causes inflammation and damage in the digestive tract. It most commonly affects the end of the small intestine and the beginning of the large intestine, but inflammation can occur anywhere in the digestive tract.
CBS News recently featured a successful Tampa attorney, Aaron Greenberg, who has struggled with Crohn’s. He describes how a new breakthrough treatment – IV Ketamine Infusion Therapy has helped his condition.
Aaron stated, “I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease about 16 years ago, after having severe intestinal pain, nausea, trouble eating and sleeping. I tried all other conventional treatments available, from remicaid and steroids to biologics and all other immuno-suppressants. I had side effects ranging from dangerous allergic reactions to liver failure. I was in severe chronic pain 24/7 and needed to rely on opiates just to be able to eat one meal per day. After an emergency surgery last year which resulted in the removal of over one foot of my intestine, the symptoms of Crohn’s disease came back to affect an even larger amount of my small intestine. I was told that my options were limited to going back on the same unsuccessful medications, or risk having additional surgeries. In the interim, my health had deteriorated to the point that I was forced to resign from job in my 5th year practicing law due to multiple and repeated hospitalizations.”
