Following a plant-based diet could be an effective treatment for Crohn’s disease, according to an US study. This study involved a 20-year-old man diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease after experiencing fatigue, bloating, episodic abdominal pain, nausea, and occasional ulcers for several years.

His condition has not changed after more than a year of intravenous treatment. However, the patient decided to maintain his new diet – which was based on fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes – and presented a complete remission of Crohn’s disease. The tests showed complete healing of the mucosa and the patient was able to stop taking his medication. He has not reported a relapse since.
