Crohn's Disease- Naturally Fighting Back

Crohn's Disease affects hundreds of thousands of people per year...

Tragically, drugs used to treat Crohn's have a known side effect of causing cancer and more than 130,000 colostomy surgeries are performed every year in the USA. Listen to Tara as she shares how she refused to have the surgery and instead used gut biome rebuilding foods to completely recover and heal from this disease. After a few months of deep nutrition, she was no longer on drugs and was medication free! More importantly, she was happy, pain-free and healthy! She proved her doctors completely wrong!



Crohn's Disease- Using food to heal her gut biome and fully recover from this painful and debilitating disease

If you are suffering from any of the chronic gut biome disorders including; Crohn’s, colitis, IBS or Celiac disease, there is hope and there is promise of complete recovery. Unfortunately, doctors have not been trained in nutrition and do not yet understand the gut biome or the inflammation process. In fact most colitis and Crohn’s medical websites say these three things over and over:

1. There is no cure.

2. There is no known cause.

3. Food does not help and foods don’t matter!

Sadly, the so-called medical experts are completely wrong on all three points and do a great disservice to patients that are desperately seeking help!  It is almost as if the medical experts and doctors are playing into the hands of the pharmaceutical sales departments when they say that that only drugs will help and surgeries are the only end game to heal. Those are not accurate statements and lead to great pain, great cost and terrible outcomes including death! These doctors don’t know about or just ignore the most modern research about the human genome.


What this accomplished:



Tara identified a diet that healed her leaking inflamed ulcerated gut tissues and restored not only the tissues but the GUT biome to complete health. She had help from nutritional experts that knew how to use foods but most importantly, it was Tara and her will to live and recover!



The protocols she used included the use of good fats, olive oil, avocados, collagen rich bone broths, raw milk Kefir, eggs, fermented vegetables and other whole foods that supply the gut with probiotic bacteria and the food to feed those diverse bacteria. In the simplest terms, an organic Mediterranean diet plus bone broth and raw milk Kefir is what Tara used to recover her gut inflammation.  After all, the very reason that the gut becomes inflamed is the loss of intestinal integrity and these foods support a healthy gut biome! Our body’s health is interdependent on the food that resides in our gut. That food and its microbial community interact with us and regulate our immunity and inflammatory status. When the biome is lost, inflammation becomes rampant and gut tissues become highly inflamed. The causes of biome loss are; antibiotic use, highly processed foods, preservatives that kill off bacteria required for biome genomic function, high sugar diets, with stress and genetic origins adding to the mix. In the USA, whole food nutrition is not easy. There are so many biome disruptors hidden in our diets and found in commonly consumed foods. These are not whole foods. Whole foods are complete and naturally occurring. They come from healthy soils and have not be processed, augmented, sprayed or changed. The consumption of GMO foods secretly sprayed with Roundup is a real threat and must be avoided. Roundup is a very toxic antibiotic and disrupts the gut biome, yet it is found in many foods we consume. Eating organic and whole is a very good start.



One of the most important healing elements that Tara identified was the "WILL to HEAL" and not give up. When the going gets rough, you must persevere. Sticking to the plan works, but you must stick to the plan and never give up. Tara came just weeks away from having surgery to remove inflamed sections of her bowels and having a colostomy bag, but instead she chose food as medicine and fully recovered. She refused to live a life with Humera, 6MP, steroids or Remicade and other chemo like drugs. These drugs have known side effect of causing cancer. Tara chose food as a tool and with a positive attitude, experienced healing and recovery!  Her story is a story of hope fulfilled and a promise for a long healthy life. Her story is an example of sustainable medicine.
