I am wondering if a raw diet can help with Crohns.  Fortuantely, my symptoms are fairly mild for now but I am still trying to get some serious infamation down in my ilium.  I also found out yesterday that the polyp my Dr removed during the colonoscopy was precancerous.  I am only 28 yrs old and am haveing a reality check on keeping my digestive tract healthier.  I have read that a completely raw diet would not be good for me b/c I have anemia, but I am wondering if I replaced 2 meals with raw foods if that could be beneficial.  Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks so much!

I personally(as well as many other cronies)try to avoid raw foods.They are much harder to break down & usually always increase my inflammation.
I am sorry to be gross,but if I can recognize foods in the toilet,I try to avoid them.

I would suggest trying soft,bland foods & maybe even consider trying liquids such as boost or ensure.

Good luck & take care!

LOL.....Thanks for the input. I have been juicing some fruits and veggie and have been doing pretty good for the most part. I have heard that a lot of people like the raw diet but wasnt sure about it being done with Crohns! I am new to the crohns stuff so I dont really know what triggers I have yet.....I know for a fact corn, milk, and red sauce are no no's but havent tested too many other foods to see yet, been sticking to the safe foods!
