Education is key to understanding and even controlling your inflammatory bowel disease. If you have access to the library or the Internet a wealth of information is at your fingertips. The advent of the Internet has helped introduce many web sites about IBD. Check out some of the sites below:
This is a general support web site email list for parents of children with ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and IBD. Anyone is welcome to join. Members of this online community can share information, offer ideas and find support.

Point your browser to www.crohnshelp.com to access the Crohn’s Disease Help Center, sponsored by Remicade. The Crohn’s Disease Help Center contains educational information for patients and their families and friends. The site contains links such as Understanding Crohn’s Disease, Help and Hope and more. Visitors to the site can also learn more about Remicade.
The American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide a support system for those suffering from chronic pain.
The ACPA offers training in skills and attitudes proved effective in helping chronic pain sufferers. Members learn stretching and relaxation techniques, and other skills to help them lead more fulfilling lives. The ACPA does not take the place of traditional medical treatment. Check out the ACPA web site at www.theacpa.org and find tips on coping with and managing chronic pain, ten steps for moving from patient to person and similar topics.
A Crohn’s and colitis “web ring” has been established on the Internet. What is a web ring? It is the easiest way for Internet surfers to navigate the web. Websites covering the same topic band together and link their sites to one another. This allows visitors to reach them quickly and easily. When navigating a topic on the Internet, web ring navigation links are usually found at the bottom of the page. Visitors can move through the ring in any direction, going to the next five sites related to the topic, the next site, or the previous site. They can also review all the sites that are members of the ring.
