Overcoming Crohn’s With Nature’s Foods
I remember when I first heard, or rather saw, Crohn’s disease. I opened up a book titled Patient, Health Thyself. Inside was this before and after photo of a man who had cured his Crohn’s disease with natural foods and supplements.
This man’s name is Jordan Rubin and he has since become a pioneer in natural health industry. He is the author of The Maker’s Diet and the founder and CEO of the company Garden of Life, well-known for its quality supplement and nutrition products. Reading Jordan’s story that day inspired and encouraged me to continue on the path of natural health I had just begun to pursue. He is a living testimony that something as devastating as Crohn’s disease can be cured… 100% naturally.
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with Crohn’s, then it’s more than likely you have given up hope. Your doctor probably informed you about different medications that can help with symptoms, but was also quick to tell you that there is no cure for Crohn’s disease.
But, I am here to tell you different.
Just look at the picture! Jordan was wasting away and his Crohn’s was so severe he had been given a death sentence! He is now healthy and symptom free! You can be, as well!
Healing Your Gut
Crohn’s, like so many other autoimmune diseases, has no definite cause. Many things can trigger Crohn’s, such as stress or even a bacteria imbalance in the gut, which then manifests in inflammation. Inflammation is a natural immune response. However, in the case of Crohn’s disease, the immune system perceives normal cells of the digestive tract as foreign invaders. The side-effects of this attack on normal cells include:
- Chronic diarrhea
- Abdominal pain
- Bloody stools
- Skin disorders
- Anemia (from blood loss)
- Anorexia (extreme weight loss and loss of appetite)
Crohn’s can be quite the double-edged sword. It can not only be brought on by imbalance in the intestinal tract, but its chronic nature only aggravates the imbalance, causing more and more damage. Luckily, there are ways to stop this vicious cycle.
Crohn’s disease can only be overcome by healing the gut. To do this, you must create an environment that is conducive for healing. You wouldn’t expect an insomniac to rest if you’re playing heavy metal music non-stop. Environment is EVERYTHING! If you give your gut the environment it needs to rest and heal, then it will do just that!
Creating a healing environment for Crohn’s involves 2 steps:
