A Dear Harry,
Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that most commonly affects the lower gastrointestinal tract, but it can occur anywhere in that tract from the mouth to the anus.
Bye-Lori, which contains the natural herb mastic, is known for its ability to eradicate the ulcer-causing bacterium Helicobacter pylori. This bacterium can not only cause stomach and intestinal ulcers, it can also lead to stomach cancer if left untreated for too long. Taking Bye-Lori to reverse ulcers, gastritis, dyspepsia, or indigestion - or to help prevent stomach cancer - may be a prudent idea.
Boswell Relief contains multiple ingredients that have been shown to be helpful in inflammatory conditions, including those of the bowel. This product might be more appropriate for your condition.
Even so, I advise you to be monitored by your physician for all your medical problems.
