I just can't see the point in posting if you can't accept differences in opinion. I just don't agree with people who make out controlling Crohn's is all about
controlling diet and stress. There's virtually no evidence that Crohn's is caused
by either; the real causes of Crohn's are likely to be so much more complex.
If my saying that offends people, then I don't really know what else to say.
Edit: @djiane - I tried eating a healthy diet. I drastically cut my sugar intake, upped my intake of veggies, etc. At one point I followed a gluten-free diet and I also tried a couple of liquid diets. Nothing made any difference. Nothing slowed the progress of my diet. Diet may work for some people, but it did zero for me.
As far as remission is concerned, there are people on this board who have been in remission for 20 years without following a "healthy" diet or being on strong meds. Crohn's is a remitting-relapsing disease. Most people who get Crohn's would have periods of remission regardless of if they did nothing to treat it
. Being in remission is nothing special: I have a brother with Crohn's who is in remission most of the time and he does not follow any special diet. He is on azathioprine though.
Anyway, I'm not - and never have done - tried to discourage anyone from trying any diet that they want to try: SCD, GAPs, fruitarian, breatharian - whatever floats your boat. I just don't need to be preached to about
it every other week.
