Crohns Diet. Crohns Disease And Diet Solutions. Great Tips For Crohns Disease Diet. Is it easy to find what types of food work for your Crohns? Then, you are at the right place.
Many patients have trouble finding their optimal diet for Crohns disease. It’s not easy to find Crohns diet that works. Sometimes diet plan that works for one patient doesn’t work for another. I am a pharmacist and all my pharmaceutical knowledge did not help when I was figuring out what food will work for me.
I studied many types of healing methods (traditional and alternative). It took me years of trial and error and tons of money paid to nutritionists, consultants and holistic practitioners to figure out what to eat. And then I found the healing methods of Functional Medicine. Now that I practice Functional Medicine it’s much easier to help my clients to figure out what to eat and find their individualized diet for Crohns disease.
I am discussing here basic rules for successful Crohns diet plan for most of you that would read this page. I am still taking new clients for my private practice and consult them on the phone.
5 Basic Rules of Crohns diet for patients with mild symptoms or on remission:
I always said that anyone with digestive diseases can’t have "one fits all" diet. If you have severe Crohns disease symptoms, your diet should be very personalized.
Food is supposed to give you strength. Food is there to keep your mind clear. Food is there as our basic necessity, but don’t overindulge yourself. Learn to have a proper relationship with food. If you suspect any type of food addiction, seek help. Seriously. If you really need and crave that piece of cake or that slice of pizza may be there’s more to that carving. Your body would be happier with just basic foods like lean protein, healthy oils and fresh organic vegetables.
If you have Crohns disease or other digestive disorder and really want to get better, you should know that you can improve with diet. Even if your doctor told you that he can’t suggest any types of diet to help. My doctor told me that I should be able to eat whatever I want. How I disagree with that statement right now. Most patients would be so happy to hear that from a doctor. “Oh, I can eat whatever I want. All I have to do is to take those medications.” Well, that’s your choice. First of all, those medications cause serious side effects. Also, many foods that you will continue eating may cause further inflammation and worsening of your condition, while the medication you take would mask many symptoms of worsening until it would get seriously bad. So I take a different route and I suggest most patients with digestive disease to start eating healing diet.
Healthy suggestions. Healthier substitutions.
I hope you stay healthy and happy with your Crohns diet.
