Can Crohn’s Disease Be Prevented?

Preventing Crohn’s disease is easier than getting it into remission. Crohn’s disease is a chronic illness in which people may experience their entire lives. Even during remission, flare-ups can exist for weeks or months. Taking control of your Crohn’s disease and setting up a life restoration program can help set you up for a healthy future.

What is Crohn’s Disease?Diagram of stomach including intestines and the colon

Crohn’s disease is an illness that causes irritation and swelling in the lining of your digestive tract. It is specifically labeled as an inflammatory bowel disease that leads to abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, and malnutrition. The most affected areas of the body are the small intestine and the colon.

Crohn’s Disease Testing

Anybody who has a genetic predisposition to Crohn’s disease, meaning anyone whose mother, father or relatives have/had the illness, are highly encouraged to receive the proper testing. There is no one test for this disease, and your doctor may conduct a series of tests on you. Testing ranges from blood tests to procedures like colonoscopies.

Signs of Crohn’s Disease

Understanding the warning signs of Crohn’s disease is also important. When the disease is active, these symptoms may occur:

  • Fever
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Bloody Stools
  • Reduced Appetite
  • Weight Loss
  • Fatigue

Having these symptoms doesn’t automatically mean you are diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, but it is extremely important to consult with your doctor for any likely case. Treatment and preventative measures exist, and you will be able to live functionally with this illness.

Preventing Crohn’s Disease

Preventing Crohn’s disease is easier than allowing it to worsen over time and then receiving treatment after the fact. That is not to say you can’t get it to go into remission, but it will take longer, and it is much more difficult.

During remission, symptoms of Crohn’s disease may disappear completely, but flare-ups are very likely. The main goal during remission is to maintain remission, and this uncertainty is why preventing the illness is more beneficial.

Epigenetics Program for Crohn’s Disease

The Epigenetics Healing Center believes in bodily function optimization. Relatively speaking, going after one specific disease like Crohn’s disease is not the traditional way of an Epigenetics program. Yes, many symptoms of Crohn’s disease can typically go away through life restoration programs, but an Epigenetics program can relieve pain from many diseases for the rest of your life.

Dr. Goodbinder of The Epigenetics Healing Center will look at you as a person and study your lifestyle. His process includes figuring out exactly what it takes to optimize your whole body. By optimizing your bodily functions, Goodbinder can balance out your immune system as well. Eventually, Crohn’s disease will just stop.

“It is about fixing the whole person, not just treating a disease.” – Dr. Goodbinder

Imagine having normal stools, eating normal meals, feeling great and going to sleep again all because of a natural healing process.
