Nutritional Therapy for IBD


Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

IBD is divided into two major categories: Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Clinically, IBD is characterised by recurrent inflammation of the intestines resulting in diverse symptoms.

Causes are theoretical but include genetic predisposition, infectious agent(s), antibiotic exposure, immune function, diet.

Nutritional Therapy will aim to:

  • Complete a review of medical history
  • Consider potential causes relevant to the client
  • Support a healthy immune function
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Assess possible dietary antagonists
  • Protect the gut wall
  • Increase nutrient intake
