Heal Your Body With a Healthy Diet

Breaking The Vicious Cycle

What If I told You There Was A Diet That Could Help Chronic Digestive Symptoms, Reduce Inflammation and Heal Your Gut?

Breaking the Vicious Cycle was written by Elaine Gottschall, biochemist and cell biologist to provide an alternative way to treat digestive disorders using dietary changes.

What’s the SCD Diet?

Elaine Gottschall’s Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) is based on the principle that specifically selected carbohydrates need minimal digestive processing. These select carbs are well absorbed and do not encourage microbial overgrowth in the GI tract.

Elaine’s book talks about using the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to help reduce inflammation and heal the gut.

What Are the Digestive Conditions Healed by the Right Diet?

Elaine Gottschall -Specific Carbohydrate Diet SCD

Elaine Gottschall -Specific Carbohydrate Diet SCD

This book gives  practical recipes that address the problems of intestinal conditions such as:

Celiac Disease
Crohn’s Disease
Diverticulitis
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Chronic Diarrhea
Indigestion

How Does The Specific Carbohydrate Diet Work to Heal?

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), is outlined in her book with easy to follow recipes. It’s a strict grain-free, lactose-free, and sucrose-free meal plan.

The SCD works by severely limiting the availability of carbohydrates to intestinal microbes. This is important because of all dietary components, carbohydrates have the greatest influence on intestinal microbes (yeast and bacteria), which are believed to be involved in intestinal disorders. Most intestinal microbes require carbohydrates for energy.

What’s Crohn’s Disease?

Genova 2.0

What is Crohn’s Disease?

Crohn’s is part of a group of conditions known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease, shortened by using the initials IBD. The part of the body affected is the digestive tract,  where we digest our food.

Crohn’s most commonly affects the end of the small bowel (the ileum) and the beginning of the colon, but it may affect any part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, anywhere from the mouth to the anus.

This GI inflammation causes parts of the intestines to become red and swollen. The inflammation typically extends into the lining of the affected organs. Sometimes sores and even ulcers occur in the walls of the intestine.

Over time the chronic inflammation will result in digestive symptoms.

What are the  symptoms of Crohn’s?

  • cramping
  • abdominal pain
  • rectal bleeding
  • fatigue
  • persistent diarrhea (loose, watery, or frequent bowel movements)
  • weight Loss

How can you find out if you have Crohn’s?

Because Crohn’s disease is marked by an abnormal response in the body’s immune system it can be detected with an at home stool test. We advise clients to use Genova Labs 2.0.

Genova’s easy to use, at home stool test employs markers that tell the difference between IBD (Crohns and Ulcerative Colitis) and IBS (irritable Bowel Disease). If the test shows positive for IBD, further evaluation with a physician is appropriate.

What is the treatment for Crohn’s?

Start today with effective, natural supplements and a change of diet. Many people have been able to control their symptoms and encourage remission with a drugless approach.

For symptom relief here are natural, safe anti-inflammatories that can help reduce inflammation. Our clients do well with Serrapeptase, FYI and Aloe Concentrate. The products are safe to use and don’t have harmful side effects.

Crohn’s Disability Benefits Guide

Disability Compensation Guide

Did you know that you could get disability compensation for Crohn’s Disease?

  • The inflammation and tissue damage associated with Crohn’s disease requires long-term management
  • This condition is considered chronic
  • This condition can be life long

Crohn’s is an inflammatory bowel disease which has a wide range of symptoms that vary in severity.

While some people may show only mild or occasional symptoms, others experience debilitating and frequent symptoms such as:

  • abdominal pain
  • diarrhea
  • fatigue

The symptoms may be severe enough to impact your quality of life. They can also increase the risk for additional health problems.

Given the long-term nature of Crohn’s disease, it may be worth looking into disability benefits. This can help offset the costs of management and help pay for unexpected expenses surrounding potential complications of the disease.

Crohn's & Colitis Team Challenge

The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundations mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.

Whether you have been directly affected by one of these diseases or want to support a loved one with Crohn’s or colitis, supporting this cause is so worthwhile. The foundation has already invested over $280 million in research.  More than 80% of each $1 raised goes towards research, education and support.

What does the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation do?

Since this non-profit was started, nearly five decades ago, the CCF has remained at the forefront of research in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. They fund cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, finance underdeveloped areas of research and enable medical professionals to keep pace with this rapidly growing field.

For those suffering with Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis they provide a forum of education, support and resources.

The Team Challenge Race event is an endurance training and fundraising program to raise money for research that could impact the scientific community’s understanding of the causes, cures and treatments for IBD. One of their current initiatives includes the research on the Microbiome. This event has raised  $71 million dollars to date since 2007.

How can you support the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation?

You can sign up to compete in a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Full Marathon. Check the site for more details on the fundraising program. There are even triathlon, Iron man and cycling events.
