“Dr. Tucker, do you have suggestions for Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD)?”
1) Avoid fructose. A fructose-free diet significantly reduces IBD symptoms. Fructose is poorly absorbed in the digestive tract of many IBD patients. So fructose passes into the colon where it’s consumed by bacteria. This produces gases that trigger IBD symptoms such as bloating, cramping, and diarrhea. This is not easy because high fructose corn syrup is in just about everything; even honey, fruit and even some vegetables need to be avoided. Other foods that may cause problems include alcohol, caffeinated beverages, milk products, and the inferior fats in junk foods.
2) Many IBD patients do well on high fiber diets.
3) Smaller more frequent meals also help.
Acupuncture and yoga have also been shown to improve IBS symptoms for some patients. And (no surprise!) chiropractic adjustments should be considered part of the program.
Natural remedies such as UltraInflamX PLUS 360 is a powerful medical food for this condition. Order from www.DrJeffreyTucker.meta-ehealth.com
