What is inflammatory bowel disease?
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is an umbrella term referring to certain chronic diseases that cause inflammation of the intestines. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are the two terms most often assigned to the different types of IBD. Although they are different diseases with a variety of forms, each disease causes the destruction of the digestive system, producing a similar group of life-altering symptoms.
First off here are the safe and non safe food lists for the 3 diets I have focused on here! This is the number one question we see when people are working to get into remission.
Low Residue/Low Fiber
(least restrictive of the 3 and a good starting point)
(more restrictive with a focus on removing certain dietary sugars)
SCD or Specific Carb Diet
(focus is on cutting out complex carbs)
