Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Crohn's & Ulcerative Colitis

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a term encompassing two conditions: Crohn’s Disease & Ulcerative Colitis. Both involve chronic inflammation of the GI tract. The immune system is heavily involved in IBD.


The infographic below has been sourced from Crohn's & Colitis UK.

Primary Conventional Medical Treatments for IBD can include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications

  • Immune medications (E.g. Biologics or TNF-alpha inhibitors such as: Remicade, Humira, etc.)


Naturopathic Management Strategies to support IBD treatments include:

  • Dietary modifications (reducing inflammation)

  • Optimal Nutrition

  • Lifestyle modifications

  • Stress Management & Mental-Emotional Support

  • Nutrient support, if required

  • Acupuncture for adjunctive support


Conventional medical treatments are important and can prove to be incredibly beneficial for individuals undergoing treatments for IBD. Naturopathic Medicine can help complement those interventions.


If you would like to come into the clinic for naturopathic integrative support please book in for a Complimentary 15-minute Consult for more information.


**Please note: Not all supplements are safe to take with prescribed medications. The risk is that certain products may reduce the effectiveness of the immune medications used in IBD treatments. Please speak with your health provider prior to beginning any therapies.



Cheers,
