How does CCFA Partners work?
We want to enroll as many people with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis from across the country as possible and hope that you will be among them. We will gather information about you and your experience with Crohn’s or colitis through a brief, confidential online survey. We will contact you by email every three months to let you know about our progress, and provide you with educational information about IBD and IBD therapies. Every six months we will ask you to update us about your condition in a brief follow-up survey. There is no cost involved. All data will be collected using a secure Internet server, so your personal information is safe and confidential. To start your survey, please click the special link at the end of this email.
If you decide to join CCFA Partners now, you can opt out at any time in the future.
We hope that you will participate fully — the more people who participate, the more reliable the research results will be! Thank you for your consideration.
If you are 18 or older and want to continue to the survey, please start your survey here.
I’ll bet my bottom dollar that all in Northport who suffer from cholitis and/or crohns disease will also test positive for h. pylori. My 36 year old daughter suffers from h. pylori and has learned loads about it. It IS curable…. H. pylori is a bacterium which colonizes in the stomach. (Bad water from Trail, perhaps??) Eventually it turns into ulcers and often esophagal cancer. Ask for a blood test (more reliable than a breath test or saliva test)… my family all did and all of the adults tested positive, but not the kids. We adults think we picked it up while travelling years ago in such places as India, Morocco, Afghanistan, where we got very ill with intestinal sicknesses. Not all who carry the h. pylori bacteria show symptoms. In my family, only one daughter… the symptoms start to diminish by working towards an alkaline system (we all bought alkaline water filters). Cabbage family is great for it. We now all eat loads of cabbage, broccoli, broccoli sprouts, sauerkraut etc. Decaffeinated black tea and coffee, etc. Most doctors know very little about h. pylori. My daughter bought the only book she could find about it on the web… the author has h. pylori and did major research. There’s one h. pylori clinic in England that deals with it. Seemingly cholitis, crohns, irritable bowel etc. are almost always related to an infestation of h. pylori. Good luck.
