What is Inflammatory Bowel Disease?

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) are chronic non-specific inflammatory conditions. The two main variations of the disease are the Crohn’s Disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). Standard IBD treatment typically employs a combination of anti-inflammatory and immune suppressive medications. Nevertheless, the pharmacological approach is not by itself curative.

IBD treatment with Anti–Inflammatory Diet (AID)

The Anti-Inflammatory Diet for IBD (IBD-AID), which is derived and augmented from the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), is a nutritional regimen that restricts the intake of carbohydrates such as refined sugar, gluten-based grains, and certain starches from the diet. These carbohydrates are thought to provide a substrate for pro-inflammatory bacteria. The second component of the diet involves the ingestion of pre-and probiotics to help restore an anti-inflammatory environment.
