Crohns/IBS Rescue Plan
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Crohn's Disease are both ailments of the digestive tract. They exhibit similar symptoms which may include persistent diarrhea, constipation, cramping and abdominal pain. They are very different conditions but they can be treated similarly. See your doctor before beginning any course of treatment.
IBS is considerably milder than Crohn's and doesn't cause the inflammation or changes in bowel tissue and in many cases can be more easily managed through diet, lifestyle and stress management.
Crohn's disease is a condition of chronic inflammation potentially involving any location of the gastrointestinal tract, but it frequently affects the end of the small bowel and the beginning of the large bowel. In Crohn's disease, all layers of the intestine may be involved and there can be normal healthy bowel between patches of diseased bowel.
The most common complication of Crohn's disease is blockage of the intestine due to swelling and scar tissue. Symptoms of blockage include cramping pain, vomiting, and bloating. Another complication is sores or ulcers within the intestinal tract.
Only The Hallelujah Diet™ is designed to address nutritional deficiency and detoxify the body simultaneously, providing the most efficient and effective way to support the body's self-healing ability. The Hallelujah Diet™ is an integral part of The Hallelujah Diet™ IBS/Crohn's Get Started Support Kit, which includes an additional, customized selection of supplements to support the body's healing efforts when battling gastrointestinal challenges, specifically.
To improve effectiveness, a dietary change is necessary. By gradually transitioning onto plant-based, primarily raw food diet you will strengthen your immune system, increase your energy and help support your body in maintaining health.
As you begin to transition onto The Hallelujah Diet™ you will begin to eliminate all foods that cause irritation especially all animal sourced foods. The initial diet will be 100% cooked whole plant foods along with fresh raw juices (as all raw fiber will be eliminated for six to eight weeks). After significant time for gastro intestinal healing, raw foods in the form of well blended green smoothies may be added. Raw, fermented foods are added as are traditional salads as the colon heals and juices and you will begin to slowly adopt an 85% raw, 15% cooked plant-based diet. The optimal goal is to combine this new approach with plenty of pure water, exercise and rest.
Whether you're treating your IBS/Crohn's through conventional or alternative means gradually transitioning onto The Hallelujah Diet™ in conjunction with The Hallelujah Diet™ IBS/Crohn's Get Started Support Kit will put your body into its best possible state to augment that treatment.
The Hallelujah Diet™ IBS/Crohn's Get Started Support Kit includes the fundamental supplements that accompany the basic Hallelujah Diet. You can switch to The Hallelujah Diet™ Maintenance Kit after 3 months. You'll receive a one-month supply:
1 BarleyMax® 4.2oz- the signature product of The Hallelujah Diet®. BarleyMax® is a pure green juice powder and the most nutritionally dense broad-spectrum living food product in the marketplace. Using BarleyMax® each day is essential to strengthen the immune system and boost energy. BarleyMax® is included because our fruits and vegetables today, even when organically grown, lack the nutritional value of those grown before the days of environmental toxicity. BarleyMax® is unique among whole green foods because it is grown organically in well-composted and mineral rich soils and processed at a low temperature that does not destroy enzymes or heat sensitive nutrients. 4.2oz BarleyMax® is available in original and berry flavor. BarleyMax® 8.5oz is also available in three delicious flavors and capsules.
2 Bottles of Profressional Strength Priobiotics - Take one twice a day. Probiotics play a critical role in the development, support and function of the immune system (about 80 to 85% of the immunes system resides in the colon). A healthy intestinal tract is host to about 3 pounds of bacteria. About 85% of those should be 'friendly' flora. Most labels on probiotic brands boast a high amount of bacteria (CFU), but very few make it past your stomach acids to your colon, where probiotics are needed most. Hallelujah Diet Professional Strength Probiotic delivers up to 60% of its bacteria all the way to your colon – giving you far more effective results!
3 Bottles of Digestive Enzymes - It is important to take Hallelujah Diet Digestive Enzymes with all cooked plant-based foods and fresh juices (the first 3 weeks). Our Digestive Enzymes supplement contains live enzymes that help improve poor digestion and the absorption of nutrients from the foods we eat. If you eat cooked or processed foods, most of the enzymes in those foods are essentially destroyed, so it is especially important for you to take a supplement of living enzymes, to support digestive health in the body. Hallelujah Diet Digestive Enzymes helps your body break down and absorb nutrients to ensure you get maximum nutrition and disease protection from your food.
Extra Digestive Enzymes are used with each juice and meal the first two to three weeks to insure maximum absorption of nutrients from the foods during the initial adoption of the diet while the body is at its weakest state. Our Digestive Enzymes supplement contains active enzymes that help improve poor digestion and the absorption of nutrients from the foods we eat. If you eat cooked or processed foods, most of the enzymes in those foods are essentially destroyed, so it is especially important for you to take a supplement of living enzymes, to support digestive health in the body. Hallelujah Diet Digestive Enzymes helps your body break down and absorb nutrients to ensure you get maximum nutrition and disease protection from your food.
Betaine Hydrochloric Acid (HCL) Pepsin & Gentian Root Extract – Take 2 with each meal or as needed. Hydrochloric Acid is included since many people have diminished stomach acid production as they age. Adequate stomach acid is essential in the digestion of dietary proteins. Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root is a combination of nutrients that are beneficial for promoting healthy digestion. Gentian, a wonderful bitter herbal, combined with Betaine HCL maintains a healthy pH in the stomach, supporting protein digestion, mineral absorption, small intestine pH and B12 absorption.
Flora DHA Flax Oil - Take one to two tablespoons daily. Flora DHA Flax oil is an excellent source of essential omega 3s. Most people consume and excess of omega 6 oils (most of these are damaged by heat and processing) which create inflammation. Ideally we should have a ration of about 2 to 1 of omega 6s (unheated) to omega 3s. With a good balance of these oils, we support the body's efforts in reducing excess inflammation and provide fats that are essential for the integrity of the cells throughout the body. According to Prescription for Nutritional Healing studies show essential fatty acids may reduce Crohn's symptoms and aid the body in maintaining remission.
Vitamin D3 with K2 - Hallelujah Diet Vitamin D3-K2 is a synergistic combination that supports bone health, cardiovascular health, and the metabolism of calcium throughout the body.* Vitamin D3 increases the absorption of calcium, and vitamin K2 directs the body to properly deposit the calcium.* Menaquinone-4 (MK4) is the form of K2 found throughout the body. Menaquinone-7 (MK7) stays in the bloodstream a long time, complementing the quickly absorbed MK4.
Note: Vitamin D3 1000 IU (CAN)
