From this video Dr Narmer Galeano explains these conditions and the differences between them. The cause isn’t fully understood but bacteria might be a contributing factor that Dr Narmer Galeano mentions so probiotics might help some people. Yoghurt is a good start but larger amounts of probiotics maybe required.
Certified Clinical Nutritionist and Nationally Syndicated Radio Host, Martie Whittekin discusses healthy bacteria. Martie recommends we should have 85% good gut flora and we can tolerate 15% bad gut flora.
An estimated 500,000 Americans have Crohn’s disease, an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes chronic inflammation of the intestinal tract. Like ulcerative colitis, another common IBD, Crohn’s disease can be both painful and debilitating and sometimes may lead to life-threatening complications. There’s no known medical cure for Crohn’s disease. However, therapies are available that may greatly reduce the signs and symptoms of Crohn’s disease and even bring about a long-term remission.
