A lot of IBD’ers do supplement with Vit D, , fish oil, Amino Acids, Crucumin . I have heard of SCFA being good for digestive health but am not aware if there are specific supplements for it and any specific success anyone has had with them. Most doctors are not into holistic health and alternatives and would go more with the tested and approved pharmaceutical drugs. Also since IBD is not a one size fits all, some folks may benefit from these supplements and some may not. You can always work with a functional medicine doctor to find out which supplements will support your IBD best. While many will find their IBD manageable with supplements alone, many also won’t and will need the pharmaceutical drugs to lead close to normal lives. It really depends on the extent of one’s disease, the type of disease, cause and triggers. That why doctors don’t write out generic prescriptions for these supplements for everyone. Also the medical fraternity is more into line of treatments that have been or can be researched not into alternative lines of treatments.
