Has anyone with Crohn's tried a plant-based diet and expereinced a decrease or elimination of their symptoms? I was diagnosed in December last year after suffering from IBS w/ constipation for 20 years. The stomach bug that I thought I had caused a fissure - which I had surgery for but never healed - and I have not responded to the medications (Humira, Remicade, Stelara) for longer than 4-6 weeks on each. I'm wondering if switching to a plant-based diet has helped anyone with a similar situation to me?
