High-fiber, Plant-based Diet Leads to Crohn’s Disease Remission
Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory disease of the digestive tract. There is no cure. With the typical treatment regime, only 10% of Crohn’s disease patients achieve long-term remission. In a case study, a Crohn’s disease patient achieved healing of the gut lining with no more symptoms after switching to a plant-based diet. A diet rich in plant proteins and whole foods may benefit Crohn’s disease patients. Fiber promotes overall gut health. As one researcher notes, “this case study supports the idea that food really is medicine.”
Crohn’s disease (CD) is a form of chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The etiology of CD is thought to be multi-factorial; genetic factors, dietary and environmental exposures, immune events, and dysfunction of the gut microbiome are all though to play a role.
