How to Prevent Crohn’s Disease
• Reduce stress on the digestive tract by having small, frequent meals. It is better to eat 5-6 small meals in a day than 2-3 large meals.
• Adopt a low fiber, but well-balanced diet. A diet high in fiber may irritate inflamed intestinal walls.
• Eat ripe bananas, apples, curd, and pureed vegetables since they help to maintain optimum intestinal flora.
• Eliminate wheat, wheat products, and lactose-containing foods from your diet. Though eliminating these foods does not directly ease the symptoms of Crohn’s disease, it will ease the symptoms of indigestion and bloating.

• Avoid stimulants like tobacco and caffeine, exercise regularly, maintain a positive attitude, and get sufficient sleep to help prevent Crohn’s disease.
