“The common symptoms of Crohn’s Disease are pain in the abdomen, bloody stools, diarrhea. You can end up anemic because you can’t absorb your vitamins, minerals and things like that. You can have trouble digesting food. Things will come out looking as they did when they came in. There can be trouble sleeping at night because of the gut pain. A lot of your neurotransmitters – like serotonin, dopamine, things that make you happy, feel pleasure and get you excited and energetic – can also be affected. The vast majority of your serotonin is actually made in your gut, so you’re going to be deficient if your gut isn’t working properly.”
