Grazing and Crohn's

I just wanted to share

Recently I went on a diet that required 6 small meals a day vs the 3 big ones we as Americans normally eat.

I had much less trouble with my Crohn's (Maybe because my digestive tract was not unter such stess all the time)and I felt less tired.

Thank you very much for giving your advice.

Every comment is very important to us. Especially, if the comment is of real, true value to our Crohn's community.

I agree eating smaller meal always helps. It really helps when there's a flare up. Also, many patients say that during flare up they mash all their food into applesauce consistency and that works for many.

Eating smaller (even better if those small meals are sugarless) will not lower pH and raise insulin levels as much and it will keep metabolic balance.

Great advice. I wish you to be very healthy!

Thank you for this information. It is very helpful. This is what I need to do. I have been eating 3 big meals a day and a snack before I go to bed. I also have suffered from Croenhs for two years now. My Functional medicine doctor has given me 2 bottles of GI- Microbe X, to be taken on an empty stomach once a day with Probiotics and Digestzymes. I felt fine after having finished the two bottles. But I thought it was not sufficient since my stomach feels uncomfortable since then. two months later I have Reflux and GERD. Although I have not told my Functional doctor, I have decided to continue the GI Microbe X with probiotics and digestzymes. My stomach is feeling much better. What do you think? How long should anyone take GI Microbe X?
