9. Carrots


Carrots are a good source of healthy nutrients for those suffering from Crohn’s disease. They contain antioxidants that help deal with Crohn’s symptoms. Plus, carrots are easy to digest and help boost the immune system.

  • Cook a few carrots until they are soft and tender. Add a little salt and eat one-half cup of carrot puree several times a day.
  • You can also drink freshly extracted carrot juice with a few drops of lemon juice and a little bit of honey several times a day until you notice improvement.

10. Vitamin D

vitamin D


People suffering from Crohn’s disease often have low levels of vitamin D. In fact, a 2010 study conducted at McGill University and the University of Montreal suggests that vitamin D deficiency is a leading cause of Crohn’s disease.

Experts believe that vitamin D plays a part in regulating your immune response and can even relieve inflammation and ease symptoms of Crohn’s disease.

  • The best source of vitamin D is the sun, which activates the body’s production of vitamin D. Try to expose your body to early morning sunrays.
  • Also eat vitamin D-rich foods like beef liver, egg yolks, sardines, salmon, shrimp, cod and fortified milk.
  • You can also take 800 IU of vitamin D supplement daily. Consult a doctor before taking any supplement.

Additional Tips

  • Maintain a food diary to keep track of what causes your symptoms to flare. This will make it easier for you to eliminate those food items.
  • Limit dairy products and high-fiber foods, as well as spicy and deep fried foods.
  • Instead of eating two or three large meals, eat five or six small meals throughout the day.
  • Drink plenty of water as well as healthy fruit and vegetable juices.
  • Avoid alcohol and beverages that contain caffeine.
  • Stop smoking, which can worsen your condition.
  • Reduce stress as it may trigger flare-ups.
  • Do mild exercises daily to normalize bowel function.
  • Try acupuncture as it helps treat inflammatory bowel diseases.
  • Take iron, B vitamins and zinc supplements. Before taking a supplement, always consult a doctor.

  1. I do wonder if my diet would help crohn’s disease. For about ten years now I’ve been living more than 90% on fluid milk products, cow milk and cow cream. Every day more than 90% of my diet is some kind of milk–skim, 1%, 2%, whole– I sometimes buy pints of half-and-half or fluid whipping cream and drink them straight. For me the diet helps with eye problems. If I eat solid, mixed food my eyes hurt and vision blurs. But if I follow this diet, they feel and work okay. I believe it’s because the nutrients from milk and cream are more gentle and soothing and less clogging and irritating to the cells than those from solid food. This is what makes me think it might help crohn’s disease, although it hasn’t been proven.

    Disclaimer: this diet hasn’t been proven safe for human beings by any medical authority. But for me it has been safe, and I imagine my body works similarly to many.
