Crohn’s disease is a disease that affects the intestine, producing chronic inflammation. The disease is thought to be autoimmune in nature… however, its causes are not yet entirely clear; genes, family history, stress, environment, etc. many factors seem to influence your symptoms. The main goal in dealing with Crohn’s disease is to find a way to reduce inflammation from a series of treatments defined by the digestive system which treats the patient according to the symptoms. While there is no permanent cure or quick fix for Crohn’s disease, natural methods can help ease your pain. While bouncing off those holiday blues and following your doctor’s advice,

8 holistic treatments for Crohn’s disease

Drink water


In particular, if you have had an attack of diarrhea you are at risk of dehydration, so it is very important to drink enough water. Make your choice of water, then add electrolyte-based fluids such as broth or coconut water.

When drinking, go slowly. Taking large sips can draw air into the digestive system, causing more gas and discomfort. Try to have fluids between meals so you don’t get too full when eating and drinking. Avoid carbonated and sugary drinks like soda. Bubbles and fructose (fruit sugar) can cause gas and bloating.

Time for enzymes


Bromelain is an enzyme naturally found in pineapple stems. This, along with proteolytic enzymes, helps break down protein sources such as eggs, meat, and dairy. Lipase helps break down fatty foods such as high fat meats, oils, and avocado. Amylase helps break down carbohydrates. Digestive enzymes also include lactase which helps break down milk sugar. You may want to consider a digestive enzyme to help support your digestion.

Eat pure (small portions)


Try not to overload your system. If you want to avoid a flare or improve faster, avoid large portions. When you eat smaller meals, it puts less stress on your digestion. It can help prevent gas, bloating, and cramps and allow your digestive enzymes to do their job. Aim for smaller, more frequent meals and avoid distractions or stress while eating.
 

Feed the good bacteria high fiber foods


You can have up to 4.5 pounds of bacteria in your digestive system, the good ones wanting to create a harmony of health with you. These communities are called your microbiome, a bacterial imprint that is unique to you. If you have Crohn’s disease, the balance between good and bad bacteria can be out of balance. Restoring this homeostasis can help improve your symptoms.

Probiotics


Probiotics are healthy bacteria that are found in the foods you eat or in supplements. They can help improve digestion and some strains have been shown to help reduce symptoms of Crohn’s disease. It is best to aim for food sources first, as they also contain other nutrients and because the quality of supplements can vary.

Food sources of probiotics include:

  • Yogurt (if you have a sensitivity to dairy products, avoid it)
  • Kombucha
  • Kimchi
  • Miso
  • Kefir
  • Pickles
  • Sauerkraut
  • Tofu
  • Prebiotics
  • But just as important as probiotics (the bacteria themselves), prebiotics stimulate the growth of good bacteria. Think of them as fertilizers or foods that help healthy bacteria grow.

Some prebiotic sources include the following:

  • Asparagus
  • banana
  • Jerusalem artichokes
  • Legumes
  • Chicory root
  • Dandelion leaves
  • Note: Go easy on sources of prebiotics, especially if you’re having a flare-up as they contain a lot of fiber which can make some symptoms worse.

Use the anti-inflammatory angle


Giving your body more anti-inflammatory foods and less inflammatory foods will help fight free radical damage and encourage less inflammation overall. Keep in mind that certain foods such as nuts and seeds are helpful for inflammation, but not for Crohn’s disease. It is most important is to listen to your body and consult your doctor.

Inflammatory foods:

  • Refined carbohydrates, such as white bread and pastries
  • French fries and other fried foods
  • Soda and other sugary drinks
  • Red meat (hamburgers, steaks) and processed meat (hot dogs, sausages)
  • Margarine and lard
  • Anti-inflammatory foods:
  • virgin olive oil
  • Green leafy vegetables (spinach, kale and collard greens)
  • Fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna and sardines)
  • Fruits (strawberries, blueberries, cherries and oranges)
  • Note: Be careful with raw fruits and vegetables again because of their high fiber content. To play safely, cook them well.

Omega 3


Foods high in polyunsaturated fats, including omega-3s, can promote healing. Study results vary on whether or not omega-3s will help relieve Crohn’s symptoms, but since it has been linked to reduced inflammation, it is worth giving it a try. Just be sure to consult your doctor before taking any supplements.

Fish and other seafood (especially fatty cold-water fish, such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, herring, and sardines)
Nut and seed oils (such as linseed, chia, and nuts)
Vegetable oils (such as soybean and canola oil)
Grass-fed butter

Consider some helpful herbs


The majority of alternative therapies are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. Here are some benefits of herbs. Proceed with caution and talk to a doctor or nutritionist to find a pure, good-quality product.

Aloe vera juice: calming effects can aid digestion and improve immunity. Start slowly because aloe vera can cause diarrhea.

Slippery elm bark: protects irritated tissue and promotes healing.
Turmeric: anti-inflammatory properties. Find out how to increase these properties.

Glutamine: An amino acid that helps bowel function. It is best taken on an empty stomach.

Test the rest (bowel rest and sleep)


If you are having a flare, it may help to follow a liquid diet to give your system time to rest and reset. With the help of a doctor, you will drink fluids that will allow you to get the nutrients you need while allowing the intestinal inflammation to subside. In addition to bowel rest, try to get more sleep, go slowly, minimize stress and strenuous exercise, and take naps as needed. Give your body time to heal.
