Yes there are good studies to show that Crohn's can be controlled and kept in remission for longer than with drugs. I suggest you go to www.functionalmedicine.org and search on there for a functional medicine practitioner in your area familliar with this approach using the UltraInflamX products form Metatgenics. This is NOT an illnes you can 'treat at home' without help from a professional. Best wishes to your daughter.
There are many natural treatments for Crohns. They all work to soothe the inflammation that's raging in her intestines, and heal the intestinal cells so they can return to their job of absorbing food. Nutrition, herbs, homoeopathy and acupuncture - they're all good.
I agree with Dr Leyton, this is a condition you need professional help for, and its long term treatment. Find a qualified and accredited practitioner that both you and your daughter feel comfortable with.
I've seen great results with a combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. I have two friends who were on the verge of emergency surgery who are now, months or years later, doing quite well. Definitely find someone with expertise in this area, and expect to develop a long-term treating relationship with that person. It can make a huge difference.
