Many people who suffer from Crohns primarily use diet and supplements to control cramping, diarrhea and pain.
As a person who has been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and later Crohns Disease I for one have not used any medication since my initial diagnosis.
For the most part gastroenterologists firmly do not believe food plays a role in the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases and inform their patients that the best course of action is medication and or surgery.

Although gastroenterologist poo poo (no pun intended) dietary and lifestyle change therapy for inflammatory diseases many people have had success in treating crohns and uc using theses methods.

As we can see from the article above crohns can be a a life threatening illness and no one is immune, rich or poor. We need to do more as far as our health. Doctors and scientist say there is no cure and that we don’t know how people contract the disease and the only way to treat is with dangerous medications that could make the disease worse. It has been proven that in many cases a dietary lifestyle change has at least helped some suffering with the disease into remission or and a combination of medication and lifestyle should be considered.
I have used a dietary lifestyle change to help with my inflammatory bowel disease with (for me) great success, and I also know those who have not been able to achieve the same much relief with this method. If you have had frequent problems with digestion please consult your health care professional, but remember “Your Health Is Your Own Responsibility”.
