Crohn’s Disease

Crohn’s disease is a long-term condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system. Inflammation can affect any part of the digestive system, from the mouth to the back passage, but most commonly occurs in the last section of the small intestine (ileum) or the large intestine (colon). Common symptoms of Crohn’s disease include:

  • diarrhoea
  • abdominal pain
  • fatigue (extreme tiredness)
  • weight loss
Over time, inflammation can damage sections of the digestive system, resulting in additional complications, such as narrowing of the colon. People with Crohn’s disease sometimes go for long periods (weeks or months) without symptoms, or with very mild symptoms. This is known as remission...

    Please send an email to support@naturalcures.com with a little more information on what you are looking for and we will have our team look into it for you.

    The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (Elaine Gottschall) and the GAPS diet (Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride) are absolutely fantastic. This article only briefly touches on the SCD, but I encourage people with any kind of bowel disease (IBS/Colitis/Crohn’s, etc.) to check them out and read both books. Also, just doing elimination diets will not cure anything. Don’t even bother with allergy tests, you’ll waste time and money. The SCD and GAPS diets help heal and seal the gut so that it truly heals the issues at the root of the matter.

    Some of the other suggestions in this article are also good.

    This is very helpful, my son has suffered from Grohns for years now (hes 21), his trigger is stress. The Doctors have for years put him on medication, then forgot about him, while he now has it under control, he is looking for a natural cure. Will send this through to him. Aloe vera is an interesting option? Might be worth a shot.

    Hi Jess,

    It’s a matter of playing with the words in the search engine as some things have different names. Please follow the link below:

    Hi Vanessa,

    Do you know what works the best to stop the loss of food? My son has been not wanting to do things to improve his Crohn’s Disease since this has been going on for almost 8 years and he is 16 years old. I wish there was a way to change his thinking to caring about his health again.

    ahh sorry about so many typos!!!!

    lol in the last paragraph i mean aloe vera.. not also vera….. got excited and hit “add comment before meticulous proofing..

    It is important to also identify any food sensitivities ( not allergies which are histamine and IgE mediated) but sensitivities which are IgG/IgA mediated delayed hypersensitivity reactions. Google “elimination diet” or hypoallergenic diet” for more info in figuring out if any food sensitivities are contributing to your CD. Often i have seen patients have flare ups in response to dairy, soy, corn, wheat.. and only after meticulous diet diary keeping and then removing these food for certain periods of time (usually at least 2 weeks) had symptoms improved.

    ALso L-glutamine 4-5 g a day mixed in water and taken away from other proteins is also very helpful. L-Glutamine is essentially “food for the enterocyctes” ie the cells of the small intestine. It provides them with nutrition to do their job efficiently.
    ,
    In addition, i would recommend using other anti-inflammatory herbs such as boswellia, curcuma, with some demulcent herbs (herbs that sooth inflamed mucous membranes) ie Althea, also gel NOT juice (aloe vera gel is not only soothing to the GI, but also had inflammation and immunomodulating properties

    Also interestingly CD is thought to be linked to the measels vaccine.

    That’s inspiring to hear, Timothy. Share it with others! Also glad to hear your friend is symptom free.

    I had a friend who had contracted Crohn’s after being in Honduras. I gave him this information & he has been symptom free ever since. Thank you for the right information!!!
