THE IBD REMISSION DIET: Achieving Long-Term Health With An Elemental Diet & Natural Supplementation Plan (Hardcover Book) - by Jini Patel ThompsonImix Nutrition
The IBD Remission Diet is ideal for anyone with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis or severe irritable bowel syndrome who has had enough of the drugs and surgery cycle. The IBD Remission Diet is a specialized, next-generation combination of an elemental liquid diet, with bone and veggie broths, along with tried and tested natural remedies proven to help heal the symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
The IBD Remission Diet is a liquid-only, bowel rest diet - it is not a selection or choice of diets, it is ONE diet only. It is a 100% natural program that combines an elemental liquid bowel rest diet with a specifically targeted supplementation plan to induce disease remission and heal the gastrointestinal tract. The only variation on this diet is to use it only half of the time, and for the other half of your diet, you consume well-tolerated foods like FODMAP or Jini's Low Residue foods.

Dozens of clinical, medical studies have shown that an elemental liquid diet like the IBD Remission Diet is as effective as steroids (such as Prednisone) at inducing remission for inflammatory bowel disease,with results in an average 3 to 6 weeks.
In fact, The IBD Remission Diet is such an effective holistic program of whole-body healing that secondary health issues are often resolved by following its diet and supplementation plan.
If you've been looking for a detailed, step-by-step natural alternative to damaging prescription drugs and surgery, that helps to induce disease remission and quick-start your return to long-term health, The IBD Remission Diet may just be the book for you.
What Is An Elemental Diet?
An elemental diet is one where EVERYTHING you consume, for a period of 3 to 6 weeks, is in completely liquid, pre-digested form. It combines protein shakes with vegetable broths, bone broths, homemade jello and certain supplements. You can do a Vegan version of the Diet, or a regular version. But know that an elemental diet requires a lot of discipline - if you 'cheat' you will not be providing the total bowel rest that is necessary for healing the gut.
Also, because your diet is completely liquid, be prepared for multiple liquid bowel movements (reduced fecal matter) throughout the day. This is not diarrhea (you will still maintain your weight, or gain weight if that is your goal) it is simply that liquid elemental diets produce liquid stool - just like a breastfed baby.
You will likely need to take time off your regular schedule, or reduce your workload significantly to do this Diet as it is a serious healing tool and root-level healing requires a lot of energy.
The other alternative to an exclusively elemental diet, is to do a half-elemental diet and then the other half of your diet consists of well-tolerated foods.
