I have a 17 month old daughter who goes to daycare 2 days a week. I developed Crohn's disease about 4 years ago, and after years of being in constant flares, lots of medication and following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (basically GAPS and... (more)
you are not going to win them all. You just have to win enough. Be firm and consistent at home. I got enough out of it that my daughter ( going to college in 2 years) will eat eggs, parmesan, broth, and some vegetables every day.
It took a while to convince my parents to let me do Paleo, but considering we're a muslim household they want to make sure it's Halal. -__- Given that, I've only managed to find ONE halal-free-range-grass-fed meat butcher in the entire city, but... (more)
I have been loosely following the Primal Blueprint for about a year and half now, throughout my pregnancy. I have Crohn's Disease, and it seemed like just cutting out gluten was enough to stop those symptoms as well as some eczema, eye issues and... (more)
Hi there! This month my finals are starting - three in february, three in april, one in may. not only i get super nervous about them, i also have to deal with ibs. as far as i know, the best thing to eat are low-fat but high-carb things in short... (more)
Hi! I really want to improve my health since I struggle with an awful IBS and migraine, but paleo didn't make alot of a change. I have absolutely no idea about supps, but i take fish oil for more omega3 and some probiotics that my doctor gave me.... (more)
Hi! I'm having alot of stress with IBD and it didn't got much better after turning Paleo. I heard it would be a better idea to go SCD. Can anyone describe me the differences very shortly? I can't actually read the book because I'm in the middle of... (more)
i've been doing paleo and scd since august. it wasn't until a few weeks ago that i made the SCD yogurt. i think it's really important to do this. i wish i would've done it sooner because i've seen results finally.
Hi! I do have an IBS for two years now and have seen every doctor around. My inflammation parameter are high and the flora is not the best, but no medicine does help, so I decided to go paleo some weeks ago. Not much change. Has anyolse these... (more)
Which foods seemed to bother you on the paleo diet that you eliminated which made your crohn's better? I am currently eliminating nuts and seeds, nightshades, potatoes to see how I feel. Eggs don't seem to bother me.
I'm the mother of a 28 yo son who still lives at home. He has VCFS (Velo-Cardio-Facial Syndrome, aka DiGeorge, aka 22qDeletion) and has cognitive difficulties. He was diagnosed with Crohn's 3 yrs ago and just had his first flare and 5day... (more)
I've got my 28 yo VCFS Crohnie son on SCD Lifestyles/Paleo diet. He lives at home and I've been Paleo 2 yrs (he's been 50% Paleo). I do all the cooking since he's cognitively challenged but high functioning. He was just discharged from a severe... (more)
I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease 15 years ago, and went through the traditional Western medical regimen (steroids, maintenance drugs, Ensure, BRAT diet, etc). I've strayed away from that approach and adopted a more natural method in an attempt... (more)
Anyone have any tips for someone with a lot of gut inflammation from crohn's who wants to go paleo? Obviously fiber is a problem and needs to be limited but so much of the paleo food outside of fish and poultry is high in fiber ie: coconut. Any... (more)
You're better off going on an autoimmune protocol aimed at healing the gut. Paleo is a healthy diet, but it won't fully resolve your particular health issues. Two well known diets aimed at healing the gut are SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) and... (more)
Hi, I am about to start the Paleo diet for Crohn's disease and I have a couple of questions. I have a stricture and a fistula but I feel OK as long as avoid factors that aggravate my condition. My doctor wants me to start treatment with... (more)
Hey guys, I just got out of the hospital after my 3rd bowel resection from Crohn's disease and have started on a Paleo diet to ensure it never comes back. However, I'm a 31 year old male, weighing in at 119 lbs. Dangerously underweight. I was... (more)
This isn't a strictly paleo question; it's got very little to do with food or the paleo lifestyle in general. But because a lot of people on this site seem to know quite a few things about digestive disorders, I would like to ask it anyway. I am... (more)
I have celiac and Crohn's disease and am wondering about the safety of a paleodiet with my health problems. The celiac obviously won't be a problem, but Crohn's is so touchy for diet. With Crohn's, I already have major concerns around malnutrition... (more)
Welcome fellow chrohnie. It works fine with the chrohns. You might want to check out Specific Carb Diet (Breaking the Vicious Cycle is the book for that) and the GAPS diet. They go in more detail about healing Chrohns with whole foods. You should... (more)
I???ve heard that there are many ways to skin a cat, and I believe this. I also believe that no crazy cat-skinning method should be dismissed outright. Ideas are useful even if they???re wrong. One idea I like very much comes from a book I???m... (more)
What persistent, albeit wrong or misguided idea(s) has (have) shaped your health and nutrition worldview? I used to think that humans could 'design' foods better than nature.
I have had Crohns disease for close a decade now. Oddly enough I'm constipated most of the time as opposed to the common 3-5 times a day diarrhea. On a routine colonscopy I had a few years ago, I had trouble with a new laxative they use. It didn't... (more)
Magnesium attracts water to the bowel, so it might counterract the drying effect of the long transit (and it's a good supplement in its own right for lots of people).
In the process of starting a blog for a Paleo grocery shopping and menu design consulting small business, I began writing an entry about who I am and what my experience has been. It made me reflect on several things I really haven't thought about... (more)
When my doctors gave up on me, and told my companion I'd be dead within 2 years, that's when I -really- started to live. See, I got -angry-. I'll be dognagged if anyone is going to tell ME when I'm going to die, and ferskiddled if I'm gonna die on... (more)
I've had Crohn's for a little over 2 years now and have never found anything to maintain remission. Cipro, an antibiotic, is the only thing that worked temporarily, but 3-4 months after taking it I would always flare. I've been on SCD for a year... (more)
As someone with Crohns I find the lower the frequency of my meals the better. That being said, I also find the smaller the volume of my meals the better I feel. You should start with the SCD intro diet or the intro GAPS protocol. I honestly would... (more)

I have Crohn's Disease and for the past year I've been eating a ZC/VLC diet in an attempt to maintain remission without medications. I just had my yearly colonoscopy on Friday, and I passed with flying colors - no Crohn's activity, 9 months... (more)
