How can diet help during a flair/remission?

  • By removing foods that may change the bacteria in your gut and promote inflammation, while increasing other foods that provide fibre and resistant starch which help to reduce inflammation #cded #EEN.

  • Staying well nourished and preventing key micronutrient deficiencies is also key!
