There is A LOT to learn about
foods and Crohn's.
Here's a little bit about
what we found was helpful with diet --
Vegan allows a lot of things that don't help when you have Crohn's such as junk food, raw food, and fruit...and no protein.
We learned -- no fruit or sugar of any kind, because infections love sugars and Crohn's folks want to get rid of infections.
Only cooked veg -- to the point of being mushy (this breaks down the fibers in the veg). That way the body can access the nutrients in the food without the pain of digesting fiber.
A bit of protein daily helps your body rebuild -- chicken, turkey, sardines ...
Hope this helps!
My husband had 3 colon resections, 7 peri-anal fistulas, a “Crohn’s hopeless case.” At 67, he became a symptom-free energizer bunny.
My mission as a nutritional coach is to help others transform their health – naturally, without medication. Eating right is the first step. IMPORTANT: Never stop, start or change the way you use a prescript
ion medicine without first consulting your doctor.
