The Ortho Molecular Answer

Crohn's Disease

Chrohn's Disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that usually affects the distal ileum and the colon.  However, it can occur in any portion of the Gastrointestinal (G.I.) tract.

To date prescription medecine has not afectively treated or cured this disease.

It is often treated with the use of antibiotics, immunosupressive drugs, surgery and symptomatic pain, constipation and anemia treatments.

More research needs to be done on Crohn's Disease to come up with a consistant Ortho Molecular treatment.


It is absolutely essential to maintain optimum nutrition with nurtients, total foods and elemental foods.

Foods which irritate the bowel or that you are allergic to should not be eaten.  This includes dairy and grains as they are often the cause of both irritation and allergy. An ortho molecular therapist may likely determine the source by taking a detailed food history and placing the client on the elimination diet:

Elimination diet

  • Remove foods to which one is allergic or which are toxic for a minimum of two weeks.
  • Monitor symptoms to see if there is improvement.
  • Reintroduce each food one at a time to determine which foods are causing an adverse reaction. If health deteriorates with the introduction of a specific food then it is toxic to your body and should be avoided, often for life.

A customized vitamin therapy will also be prescribed.
