Kinda confusing post. First you say it doesn't do anything and then in your last paragraph you say it does.https://crohnsforyouandme.wordpress.com/
This covers studies on dietary approaches.
Fasting has not been shown to do anything for Crohn's, at least in part because of the length of time which is required to starve out some bacteria in the gut in addition to the length of time which is required for immune reactions to their parts to die out is on the order of a few days.
It is well-supported that if somebody with Crohn's ate nothing for a week or two, the symptoms related to their Crohn's should mitigate or disappear.
Thank you for your insight! Exactly the thought that I had-- your gut has more time to heal when it's empty.Kinda confusing post. First you say it doesn't do anything and then in your last paragraph you say it does.
Anyway, I've been experimenting lately with fasting. I typically go 12-16 hours for the most part without eating, and 8 hours eating. And once a month I've been doing a 3 day fast. I've been doing this for about 4 months.
I think it helps. Its allowed me to be more lenient with what I can eat and not be so strict all the time. Also, I refrain from eating in the morning, and my first meal is usually around noon. I notice my energy in the morning and my cognitive ability is so much better. I also keep track of my weight and I haven't lost any weight because I am not trying to. I think this is because your gut heals when you fast. And you absorb food easier when you start eating again.
I think if you combine fasting with eating healthy, it's a very powerful combination.
This sounds pretty dumb but I've basically just watched a lot of youtube videos on fasting. Here are a few that I felt were very informative.Thank you for your insight! Exactly the thought that I had-- your gut has more time to heal when it's empty.
Would you happen to have any materials/resources to send over about the protocols and getting started? Also-- are you on any other specific diets?
