Living with Crohn's & Colitis Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Approximately 1.5 million people in the United States alone are afflicted with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a category of illnesses that includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and that number is steadily growing. Although there is not yet a cure for Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis, patients can help reduce their symptoms and improve their overall wellbeing by following a comprehensive wellness plan such as those outlined in Living with Crohn’s & Colitis.

Living with Crohn’s & Colitis offers patient-focused, expert guidance on everything from the latest medical treatments, how to cope with a diagnosis, and tips for balancing diet with a busy lifestyle so you can form a personalized wellness plan.

Living with Crohn’s & Colitis also includes:

Easy to understand information on the role of inflammation and the immune system on gut health

Traditional and alternative treatment options for a broad, full-body approach to wellness

A 3-month wellness plan adjustable to each individual’s health needs

Over 25 delicious recipes designed for those with IBD

Learning to live with the myriad aspects of Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis treatment, including dietary restrictions and medications, can seem overwhelming. Written by a naturopathic doctor and a Crohn’s patient, Living with Crohn’s & Colitis is a thoughtful, balanced resource to help you on your journey to wellness.
