Crohn’s? What????

Crohn’s disease, which is also known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), is typically

found in the final portion of the small intestines or at the beginning of the large intestines

(colon).

Truth be told, it remains a medical mystery. It can be identified as an abnormal

autoimmune, inflammatory response in the mucosal lining of the intestines.

This belly discomfort may be triggered by any one of the following:

  • Exposure to a food allergen
  • An abnormal response to otherwise normal intestinal bacteria
  • An invasive bacterium
  • A virus
  • Congenital (passed through the family)
  • Or, Smoking

Symptoms may include:

  • Belly pain
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Severe or chronic diarrhea (with or without blood) that may result in malnutrition
  • Weight loss.
  • In some cases, mouth sores, bowel blockages, or rectal tears (fissures).

* If you have any concerns about symptoms you are having, contact your physician for an exam and avoid potential complications.

What do I do to stop the madness?

  • Eat a well-balanced diet including plenty of fruits, vegetables, and grains
  • Avoid processed or refined foods
  • And, avoid foods that create an obvious flare-up of your symptoms (duh)…

Here are some foods that may be problematic to someone with Crohn’s:

  • Spicy foods
  • Caffeinated beverages
  • Alcohol
  • Chocolate
  • Popcorn or corn
  • Fruit juices or raw fruits and vegetables
  • Beans or legumes
  • Onions or garlic
  • High-fat foods or fried foods
  • And, artificial sweeteners.

Here are four simple steps to improve your intestinal discomfort:

  1. Take any medicine your doctor has prescribed.
  2. Exercise regularly.
  3. Eat a balanced diet.
  4. Do not smoke!

It seems so simple and, yes, it is! Just clean up your diet and lifestyle and start living with a happy tummy.
