Yogurt alone will not help you beat CD, but eating (home made yogurt) in combination with a radical change in diet to the SCD diet, you might be able to put CD in permanent remission just as I did.
In 2007 I was diagnosed with CD in the colon after having two massive rectal fistulas, explosive D, blood and mucus in my stools, etc. GI wanted me to go on humera, but I decided to try a more natural method first, so I went on the SCD diet and the only drug I took was pentassa. I followed the diet with 100 % dedication in all aspects with no cheating.
In 9 months all symptoms were gone and both fistulas completely healed up . Since then, I have not had one symptom of CD, and a colonoscopy last year showed ABSOLUTLEY NO signs of CD anywhere in my intestines. GI said I was cured.
Today , I still follow the SCD diet , but not as strict as before, and I eat a cup of homemade yogurt every day.
Yogurt is a big part of this diet, but it has to be home made and fermented for 24 hours. Store bought yogurt is not fermented enough eliminate all the lactose and sugar, which just feeds the bad bacteria in your gut.
Read the book "Breaking the Vicious Cycle" that goes into detail of how the SCD diet works.
