Read an article today saying that coconut and pineapple were good natural foods for us crohnies. Email if you would like me to send you a copy of the article. I have to PDF it for you. Hope all is well!

Maybe just the title of the pdf? It is probably on google somewhere - that would save you the trouble of emailing it.

I eat coconut and pineapple quite regularly, I love them both, pineapple is such a great digestive enzyme along with papaya, kiwi and mangos, and coconut is so healthy for you, the good kind of fat, I love the juice/milk as well as the flesh.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

I'm allergic to both - sad! Glad you all can enjoy it though. :)

I've also heard coconut is good for people with IBD--especially coconut oil--just make sure it's pure and not hydrogenated!

I read the same article and it also says that it will not help everyone. I go agree it is worth trying, but if it does not work for you then try something else.

I have to be very careful with pineapple.  If I eat too much the acid tears up my mouth.  And that was long before I had any problems with Crohn's.  I worry about what it would do to the rest of my digestive tract if I ate much of it now.

But I always look at it longingly when I see fresh chunks on a fruit tray!

Mangos, papayas and kiwis are all good alternatives to pineapple if you can tolerate any of those...they are all natural digestive enzymes which help break your food down when eaten after each meal, and a lot does not have to be consumed to be effective.

Is it because pineapple has Bromelain in it?
