Getting to Remission With Enteral Nutrition : Discover the Clinically Tested Non-drug Treatment for Children and Adults With IBDBook - 2009
This book describes an effective dietary treatment for Crohn's, used since 1969 but little known in the US. Known as "enteral nutrition" this clinically tested therapy begins to act in as little as 10 days, can induce remission in kids and adults with Crohn's, and can work as well as powerful immunosuppressive drugs. Beat Crohn's describes who can benefit from enteral nutrition, why patients might want to use it, what symptoms respond best, and how it compares with medications. Readers will also find practical tips on using enteral nutrition and stories of kids and adults who have tried it. Other features include an overview of the latest research on supplements for people with Crohn's and a chapter assessing whether patients with ulcerative colitis, indeterminate colitis, and IBS might benefit from enteral nutrition.
