Control Crohn's Disease Naturally

By Wednesday, 18 December 2013 09:14 AM Current | Bio | Archive

Millions of Americans suffer from the two major inflammatory bowel diseases: Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. Crohn’s can afflict any part of the GI tract, while ulcerative colitis plagues the colon and rectum. Both cause bloating, cramping and chronic diarrhea. Besides interfering with everyday life, each disease can lead to cancer, especially ulcerative colitis. For detailed information, go here for my special report “Colon Cancer: The Hidden Dangers.”
Fortunately, there is help for both of these debilitating and potentially deadly conditions. Both improve with a diet that is free of processed foods and full of fresh fruits and vegetables. Probiotics are also helpful and the right vitamins and minerals are critical (go here for an explanation of the importance of probiotics to our digestive systems). For example, vitamin E reduces inflammation, thereby lowering cancer risk.
For both Crohn’s as well as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), it is essential to avoid carrageenan, soy products and MSG (and similar products). All are excitotoxins and are present in many processed foods and all incite inflammation and colon spasms.
The all-powerful omega-3 fats can also reduce colon inflammation, and are useful in treating both Crohn’s and colitis. Several studies have reinforced the idea that omega-3s are beneficial in the fight against inflammatory bowel diseases. In fact, studies show that our general state of health — or general state of illness — correlates directly with omega-3 levels in the blood.
Selenium and zinc are also key to controlling Crohn’s and colitis, and antioxidants such as curcumin all help reduce inflammation and colon spasm.
For more information on how all-natural remedies help you deal with other types of stomach problems such as acid reflux, get my special report “Stomach Health: Stop Acid Reflux, Prevent Cancer & Improve Your Life.”
