I am a crohn's disease patient and now my ESR level is 70 and CRP positive. I am taking pentasa 1g twice (morning and evening) and also 150mg of azoran (immunity suppressant tablet) in the morning alone.
Today I visited an ayurvedic doctor to start ayurvedic treatment and he gave me medicine indukantham kashayam and septilin and both seems to boost the immunity of the body. I want to know is it good to have both medicines like pentasa/azoran with ayurvedic medicines as mentioned above.My ayurvedic doctor has said that I can continue both for some time and then review after a week and check if ESR levels have fallen. Please advise.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Crohn's disease is an autoimmune disease, in which our own immune system tries to act against our body tissues. With this concept, allopathy physicians give drugs to suppress immunity, thus no action against our body tissue. This is the way of allopathy treatment. These immunosuppresants have their own side effects over a long period of time.
