“IBD” includes Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis (UC) where the digestive tract is chronically inflammed.  Symptoms include frequent diarrhea, pain, fatigue, nausea and weight loss due to malnutrition.

AVOID: bad fats, corn, lactose, omega 6 fatty acids, wheat and refined sugar to starve the bad bacteria

  • the modern diet contains an overabundance of the polyunsaturated fat Omega 6 which induces inflammation


This affects only the large intestine causing frequent & bloody diarrhea, weight loss, abdominal pain and bowel urgency

  • take 100ml Aloe per day
  • consume monounsaturated fats from sources like olive oil


This affects sections of the small and large intestine causing abdominal pain, weight loss, diarrhea, nausea & vomiting

  • take a Vit. D supplement

Consume the following to help boost good bacteria:

  • Avocado
  • Curcumin
  • Fruits
  • Monounsaturated fats from olive oil
  • Nuts
  • Prebiotics: fibers found in bananas, onions and flaxmeal can soothe inflammation
  • Probiotics: certain bacterias may help reduce inflammation so include the following in your daily diet: yogurt, kefir, fermented sauerkraut, kimchi, sourdough and pickles that contain “live bacteria”
  • Soluble fibre
  • Veggies
