Sam Faiers Says healthy lifestyle Cured her Crohn’s


Speaking to NOW magazine, she said: ”I can’t speak for everyone but in terms of my own experience, when I started feeling myself again I weaned myself off the medication I was on and had a balanced diet and lifestyle.

”I’d take vitamins and minerals for my digestive system, so that’s how I got myself better. I used to be on a drug called azathioprine [an immune suppressant] and I felt well and happy and I got to a stage where I thought, ‘Now I’m going to try and do this myself with vitamins and minerals because I’m young and I don’t want to be on medication for ever.’

The 25-year-old reality TV star also believes her partner Paul Knightley, with whom she has four-month-old son Paul, has helped a lot because he’s into his health and fitness.
