Crohn's Disease Support
Support for Crohn’s Disease
While we cannot technically say we can cure Crohn’s Disease, the approach is aimed at supporting your body to achieve and sustain a state of remission.
While diet is the main focus there isn’t a one size fits all approach. Clinically researched dietary templates are used and adjusted to the individual.
Reduce Oxidative Stress
Increased oxidation may contribute to injury to tissue is Crohn’s. By supporting our natural antioxidant defenses, we aim to reduce tissue injury and support healing.
Supporting the lining of the gut (the mucosa) has been associated with reduced disease activity, longer duration of remission, and a decreased need for surgery.
Correct Nutrient Deficiencies
As the gut lining is often compromised in Crohn’s absorption of key nutrients may be impaired which may alter the disease.
Gut Health Testing
Additional testing can offer the most comprehensive insight into the digestive system.
These offer actionable information to help us understand what’s happening inside the digestive system on a bacterial and immunological level.
The following are tests that can help with offering a clear insight into the digestive system.
- Vitamin D – A key nutrient to support the gut lining.
- SIBO Breath Test – Approximately 30% of those with Crohn’s also have a bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine known as SIBO.
- Microbiome analysis – The composition of the bacteria in the large intestine can offer insight and guidance on how to approach your condition.
- Food intolerances – The removal of IgG food intolerances can improve symptoms and lead to longer periods of time spent in remission.
