Is Crohn’s Disease Chronic or Acute?
Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease. It causes symptoms that are difficult and at times embarrassing to deal with, such as abdominal pain, diarrhea and nausea. There is currently no cure for Crohn’s disease, but it can be treated with medications and through changes in diet. It often goes into remission and may stay there for months or even years.
Crohn’s disease is a chronic disease. A chronic disease is one that lasts for a long time: at least three months. Symptoms may be constant during that time or they may be in remission, but the condition is still present. The disease can be treated and controlled but there is usually no cure for it. Some chronic diseases are fatal. Other examples of a chronic disease are kidney disease, cancer and diabetes.
An acute disease is one that develops quickly but only lasts for a short time. Symptoms may be mild or severe but are nearly always present at all times. Not all acute diseases require medical treatment. Many subside in a few days or a week. As with chronic diseases, some acute diseases can be fatal. Examples of acute illnesses are the common cold, strep throat and conjunctivitis.
Crohn’s disease may be chronic, but that does not mean it has to continuously have a negative impact on your quality of life. A diet rich in natural, whole foods with little or no processed foods will have a major positive impact on the symptoms and keeping the disease in remission. Food combining along with this healthy diet will help relieve symptoms even more by reducing the stress that improper eating places on your body.
What is food combining? It is a unique way to eat that promotes better digestion and drastically lowers symptoms of Crohn’s, IBS, and chronic diarrhea. Have you ever eaten a slice of apple pie with ice cream on top, only to feel bloated and queasy later? That’s because eating fruits with dairy and starches is bad for your stomach. Your stomach has to work overtime, producing acids that oppose each other, just to try and digest these uncomplimentary foods.
The result? Pain, heartburn and gas. Food combining teaches you how to avoid these food traps. You will feel stronger and healthier in as little as just 24 hours. Try food combining today and feel the amazing difference.
