Does Diet Affect Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis?

Can Dietary Choices Positively or Negatively Affect You?

Many attempts have been made to verify a bacterial, mycobacterial, fungal or viral origin to be responsible for intestinal disorders. Mental and physical considerations such as psychosomatic illness, stress, and emotional trauma may have an important role as contributing factors or advancement of the disease.

Michelle Honda PhD notes; “I have a client who developed colitis from overwork and emotional stress. Her lifestyle eventually settled down and her condition systemically went away. It has been several years now and still no symptoms.”

Symptoms include diarrhea, flatulence, abdominal tenderness, fever, anorexia and weight loss, a general feeling of being unwell. X-rays show abnormality of the terminal ileum.

Although the causes of Crohn’s disease are many and are often the result of autoimmune disorders or food allergies. Alternative treatments address these factors through diet, nutritional supplementation, herbal medicine and Ayurvedic medicine.

Crohn’s disease studies have generated some dramatic results relating to carbohydrates in the diet. Two reports in the 1980’s appeared in the medical literature. The first reported the results of Dr. Von Brandes and Dr. Lorenz-Meyer of Marburg, West Germany who brought about remissions in twenty patients with Crohn’s disease by forbidding foods and beverages containing refined carbohydrates, mainly sucrose and starch.

In the second study involving twenty patients with Crohn’s disease, dietary changes involving the elimination of specific foods, particularly cereals and dairy products, resulted in sustained remissions. The physicians conducting the research concluded that “dietary manipulation might be an effective long term therapeutic strategy for Crohn’s disease.”
