Nutrition for Healing Celiac and Crohn’s Disease, and IBS

Recovery from Celiac, Crohn’s disease and IBS is complicated. These serious digestive disorders cause intestinal damage, which lead to malabsorption and ultimately, severe nutrient deficiencies and malnutrition. For Celiac disease, a gluten-free diet is the first step to recovery. For Crohn’s disease and IBS, removing all refined food and food that irritates the intestinal track is essential. But these steps alone are not sufficiently effective in recovering from long-term malabsorption. The next step to building optimal health is eating highly nutritious, easy-to-digest foods that will heal the digestive tract, correct candida overgrowth, develop a healthy intestinal bacterial balance and ultimately, alleviate malnourishment.

Performance without Pain is a book that discusses recovery from serious chronic ailments, such as Celiac, Crohn’s disease and IBS through nutrient-dense traditional foods, based on the research of Dr. Weston A. Price. Dr. Price studied 14 populations of people worldwide who had no degenerative illness and had eaten the same foods for 100s of generations. Although their diets were completely different, he compiled the basic nutritional elements that gave them perfect health. A dietary approach with these components will give you a superior advantage over one that merely eliminates irritating foods, in rebuilding your health.
