Can Corn Adversely Affect Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis?
Is Corn an Issue for Crohn’s & Colitis?
Murray and J. Pizzorna agree with several studies which analyzed the pre-illness diet of patients with Crohn’s disease and have found that people who develop Crohn’s disease habitually eat more refined sugar and less raw fruit and vegetables and dietary fibre than healthy people.
It was also noted that Crohn’s disease patients had eaten corn flakes more frequently than control groups. Although other researchers could not confirm this particular conclusion, corn flakes are high in refined carbohydrates and are originated from a typical allergen, corn.
Unfortunately, the conventional texts have overlooked the role of food allergy, a very important factor associated with Crohn’s disease. In fact, food allergies may be a component in many intestinal disorders. Food allergies can also emanate as a result of malabsorption syndrome, which occurs whenever there is damage to the surface layer of the intestinal tract. This impairment results in poor digestion causing large food particles to cross the gut wall into the bloodstream, consequently food allergies develop.
Medications and surgery have had limited success with Crohn’s disease coupled with their toxicity. Understanding the natural course of Crohn’s disease is an important factor in order to affect a reversal or healing process. It is commonly believed that standard medical care of Crohn’s disease often interferes with the normal efforts of the body to restore health.
