Hello- Causes of premature ejaculation include abnormal hormone and neurotransmitter levels, malfunctioning reflex activity of the ejaculatory system, thyroid disorders, inflammation and infection of the prostate or urethra, abuse to prescription drugs, damage to the nervous system, and elevated stress and anxiety levels.

Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) characterized by abdominal pain, diarrhea, intestinal obstructions, abdominal masses, fatigue, nausea, mouth ulcers, and many other disruptions of the gastrointestinal system. Crohn’s disease often affects the colon, anus, and terminal ileum. Deep intestinal ulcerations with a patchy distribution throughout the gastrointestinal system help to distinguish Crohn’s disease from ulcerative colitis. Acupuncture reduces intestinal inflammation in patients with Crohn’s disease, reverses tissue damage, and improves the quality of life. Acupuncture and moxibustion have been shown to improve CDAI (Crohn’s Disease Activity Index) scores in modern research. CDAI scores are a method of measuring responses to medicine and medical procedures by quantifying responses and remissions of Crohn’s disease. The researchers noted that studies show that acupuncture improves CDAI scores, quality of life, increases hemoglobin levels, and reduces CRP levels for Crohn’s disease patients. CRP (C-reactive protein) is determined by a blood test and quantifies inflammation levels. High levels indicate inflammation, often due to infections and chronic disease. The researches demonstrates that acupuncture significantly lowers CRP levels for Crohn’s disease patients. Patients with Crohn’s disease are often treated with corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, aminosalicylates, and anti-TNF-alpha medications. Acupuncture is an effective treatment which can be combined with any of these.

But consult a Doctor before starting any supplements. Practicing Kegel's (Pelvic Floor) exercise can also help. The best method for locating the muscles of the pelvic floor is to stop your stream several times in the middle of urination. The muscles you clench to do this are the ones you need to exercise. To perform a Kegel exercises, squeeze those muscles, hold for five seconds, then relax. Repeat this 10 to 20 times, two or three times a day. You can try this in different positions, including lying down with your knees up, sitting in a chair, and standing. Another way to think about Kegels is to squeeze the muscles of your anus, like you are holding a bowel movement. Hold for five to 10 seconds while breathing, then relax all muscles.

Acupuncture & Acupressure Treatment of Crohn’s Disease

Acupuncture has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat inflammatory bowel disease. Acupuncture and moxibustion were effective specifically for treating Crohn’s disease. Moxibustion  is a technique in which the herb mugwort is burned over specific acupuncture points. It is used because it is thought to reach deeper into the body than using needles alone. 

Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy Treatment of Crohn’s Disease

Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy and counseling has been very helpful in the treatment with Crohn’s disease. It has been proven that when exposed to a stressful situation some children learn to develop gastrointestinal symptoms to cope with the stress. Crohn’s disease is stress related. Exercise is helpful to relieve stress therefore reducing symptoms of these particular diseases.

Conventional / Allopathic Treatment of Crohn’s Disease

The conventional treatment for Crohn’s disease involves first administering steroids in order to control the patient’s symptoms (abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea); the next step involves administering immune-suppressing drugs, which prepare the body to receive the third medication – an antibody that curbs the inflammatory response at the root of the disease. 

Surgical Treatment of Crohn’s Disease

Some people who suffered with Crohn’s disease will need to have surgery at some point to treat the disease. Surgical treatments include:

Correction of a fistula or fissure
Draining of an abscess
Opening of a stricture or obstruction of the bowel
Removal of a segment of diseased tissue.
Dietary & Herbal Treatment of Crohn’s Disease

Eat six smaller meals a day, rather than three larger meals
Elimination food types such as grains or sugars.
Take a daily multivitamin
Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco
Avoid refined foods such as white breads and pastas 
Other Treatment of Crohn’s Disease

Mild exercise can help reduce stress, relieve depression and normalize bowel function. Talk to your doctor about an exercise plan that’s right for you.
