Everyone needs to find their own maintenance. I am glad you have one that works for you. I must be honest-the term 'cure' makes me squirm uncomfortably. Maintain, manage, daily regimen--all refer to a deliberate action to change lifestyle in order to affect physical change.
I believe diet plays a role in making the body more healthy, thereby improving overall health. Better overall health improves everything. This is especially important when there are multiple issues involved. It is the same with sleep patterns and exercise. We can use these commonalities in a way that improves overall health.
As of right now, there are no links between brain functioning, diet, and body functioning. Diet is a big 'maybe' when it comes to the measurable impact on other conditions, outside of IBDs. Researchers are discovering interesting corollaries between brain and gut, but this is still early days in terms of understanding.
I eat a low-fat, low(ish)-carb, low-processed food diet called SCD--one that has some benefit for IBD.
