Dietary strategies and delicious recipes that help manage inflammatory bowel disease.
Good nutrition is a top priority for people living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and also for their families and friends. There is often a fear of trying new foods, as well as other concerns. Is a current diet appropriate? Can the usual foods purchased at the grocery store still be part of the daily diet?
Crohn's and Colitis Diet Guide addresses these concerns and more. The authors explain how nutrition plays a central role in the management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and discuss the importance of maintaining general health during times of disease activity and periods of remission. They also show how a person's nutritional status affects immunity, wound-healing and other physiological processes. Reliable, well-researched dietary advice combined with 150 outstanding recipes provides a crucial resource for those managing IBD.
Although good nutrition does not cure IBD, and although -- with certain exceptions -- nutritional therapy does not always control disease flares, good nutrition is important for health maintenance, symptom management and well-being.
A companion to Steinhart's Crohn's and Colitis, this book offers reliable dietary advice and strategies to aid suffers of inflammatory bowel disease combined with 150 appropriate recipes. Good nutrition is an important tool in symptom control.
