Dr. Brody’s Natural Approach to Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
There are two main Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) which are called Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease. Just as the name says, there is some form of inflammation in your digestive track that is causing problems. This inflammation can be present for many different reasons, but the first and the most important one is what you put into your body three times (or more) a day.
Believe it or not, there are healthy foods that are good for you and ones that are not good for you. This goes into more depth than just “don’t eat sweets/meat”. Within my treatment plan, I tell certain people to eat meat, others to eat more fish, some to avoid kidney beans, others to avoid cucumbers or chicken, or to consume more butter. The method in my treatment plan is geared toward you, the individual. My patients have seen success with controlling, reducing and in some cases, remission of IBD. Common symptoms include; diarrhea, bloody stools, mucus in stools, pain while defecating, loss of weight, fever etc.
‘Faecalibacterium prausnitzii‘, is an important commensal bacterium of the human gut flora. This bacteria is considered beneficial and is one of the most prevalent intestinal bacterial species in healthy adults. The reduction of this bacteria in the gut is seen in several diseases, including Inflammatory Bowel Diseases such as Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease.
