Crohns

Janet from Halswell

My daughter had Crohns/Ulcerative Colitis for over 10yrs.....debilitating disease, tried everything including Remicade transfusions ( which were terrible)..She tried many things...Anyway just have to share this....nothing in it for me, except somebody else may benefit.....It started in October 2018 first I made her stop ALL medications then fast for a day.....then she started on a strict combination diet ie Alkaline as per R Young AND Lectin Free as per Gundry.....the diet had to exclude each and everything that each diet excluded....anyway...after only 3 weeks she noticed improvement,,, and if she did cheat and consume those foods, same as now, she reacts very very badly to them . But the good news is, a recent 2021 colonoscopy showed a completely healed Colon. She also takes CBD oil as this disease seems to affect the brain, so although not "cured" , she has no disease symptoms and can now break the rules occasionally without any flare, although rarely does as risk not worth it. I hope this post helps somebody else.

Throwback Thursday: Rail freight

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The war stifled building development in the 1940s but NZ Railways' new outwards goods
shed went ahead. The concrete structure at the corner of Colombo and Cass streets was the largest building in the South Island when it opened in 1945. If the shed represented rail's dominance in freight transport, the new Christchurch station, built soon after, symbolised an
expected golden age for passengers. The new goods shed allowed old sheds across the
tracks, and a little to the east, to be demolished, clearing the site for the new station. Who
would think, within 50 years, both would be redundant?
