Summary & Review of Book

For alternative approaches to Crohn's Disease, I highly recommend: Restoring Your Digestive Health: How the Guts and Glory Program Can Transfom Your Life (Paperback) by Jordan Rubin. (Author), and Joseph Brasco (Author). ("Pocket-sized consumer text offers hope for those who are suffering from digestive disorders. Discusses common current treatments that do not work. Provides easy-to-understand information about the major reasons digestive systems revolt against modern dietary practices and step-by-step instructions on how to address gastrointestinal problems. ") Brasco is an MD who focuses on gastrointestinal disorders. Rubin recovered from severe Crohn's as a young man, and started Garden of Life supplement co. Combined, they are a very powerful team to help with GI problems, especially Crohn's. They recommend their Phase I, II and III diets and gear them for different conditions. Those are very detailed diet plans. I checked, its less than $10 on Amazon. To give you a flavor, for example, they have protocols for different issues. Their protocol for diarrhea includes: Foods:  

  • 10 glasses of high quality mineral water per day
  • Cultured goats milk dairy
  • Grass fed red meat
  • Omega-3 eggs
  • Cocunut oil
  • Ocean caught fish
  • Cod liver oil
  • Vegetable juice
  • Fermented veggies, such as sauerkraut and kim chee
  • Soup stocks


  • Probiotics 
  • Homeostatic soil organisms (note – no good research on effectiveness, but lots of anecdotal)
  • Clay
  • Digestive enzymes
  • Fiber
  • Antifungal
  • Protein digestant
