I also have Crohn's and am able to keep it in remission by diet. I was not able to tolerate a mostly fruit diet. I eat mostly vegetables, a little fruit, nuts, seeds, and sometimes rice and pasta. No added oil, no sugar, no salt.
It really is trial and error finding something that will work for you. I hope this helps you.
Regarding the dry skin: Are you eating any avocado or raw nuts/seeds? Don't use hot water to bathe, just warm and only as needed. Too much soap and showering strips the natural skin oils. You could also use olive oil or coconut oil on your skin.
Thanks again :)
Yes i have been trying to include a little bit of fat in my dinner - olive oil/avocado to check my fat absorption.
I read somewhere that your body can just absorb minerals/oils from the skin itself to balance out the deficiency, so just using a lot of coconut oil on the skin to help out with dryness!
My buddy Ian has reaped tremendous benefits from a raw lifestyle, healing a similar digestive issue.
Hopefully, this info will be encouraging to you:
Thanks a lot for the videos mate, will watch them tonight :)
Yeah, these initial symptoms seems to be all related to the body's detoxing process and i am very positive that it will all work out some how at the end !! Have to heal from inside out :P
