If you look up in our Crohns resources we have links that discuss the various diet choices many of us use. You might want to check that out. Also here is the link to a recent post about
the diet: http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=17&m=1576543
I will tell you that I personally believe the diet can help with symptoms, but I believe to treat the disease adequately you need to use it in compliment with maintainence medications. I once had a long remission and it ended abruptly with an emergency resection due to a complete blockage. The medications help to deal with the microscopic damage the disease continues to do. My time without meds, caused me to go thru many painful years of trying to get the disease back under control, and I personally will no longer go without meds, and my Crohns is considered mild. I personally live on a low residue diet all time, and it works well for me. You can google it to get diet ideas. Hope this helps a little.
