Here’s a funny story for you: I was recently asked to present at a gastroenterology seminar and the organizer wanted to know if I could speak about effective diets for Inflammatory Bowel Disease. That’s when I realized I did not have a video on this topic! I was actually shocked to discover that all my info on dietary guidelines for Crohn’s, colitis, diverticulitis and IBS was either buried in 2 hour interviews, or, only in my books.

So if you’re currently reading Listen To Your Gut, this overview will help make Chapter 3 (Food As Medicine) a lot easier to wrap your head around.

Also, as I am in the middle of revising Listen To Your Gut (3rd Edition!) – please note that the guidelines in this video are more up-to-date.

Any questions, just leave them below and I or one of my team will get back to you with more info or resources.

  • My son had a scoposcopy yesterday. He has severe crohn’s Damage. The doctor has often tried to talk to him about surgery to remove his jpouch.
    I read your book and I ordered the absorb plus and udo’s Oil. The elemental shakes were really helping him but he has had a relapse. I believe some was brought on because of the anxiety of having the scope. I would like some input of what else we should doing to help heal these ulcers.
    He has no coon because he was it’s diagnosed with UC. but after a few years of disease free he was diagnosed with Crohn’s.
    Thank u in writing your book and sharing your story.

    1. Hi Linda,

      Aside from bowel rest using Absorb Plus liquid diet, other important steps that you need to follow is to eradicate pathogenic microorganisms (like bad bacteria, yeast, fungi, etc.) using Wild Oregano and then re-populate the bowel with good bacteria using Probiotics. Can you tell me more about the Ulcers? You can email me at

  • Do you have any information on eradicating clostridium difficile? It was contracted when in the hospital for treating Crohn’s.

      1. I have had chronic diarrhoea from Microscopic Colitis for the last 3 years. I had a brief remissission after initial Wild oregano Protocol and Natren Probiotics. However, one week into a Cruise l relapsed severely, even though these Protocols were continued.
        This week l have started my 6 week banana and kefir Aryuvedic Protocol also, so far no improvement, can l include mashed avocado in the smoothie to increase energy and satiation.
        Also, is it necessary to follow this stringent diet if l do not have ulceration and bleeding as in UC.? Will the diarrhoea elimination diet be adequate.
        Kind regards

    1. Hi Barbara,

      Thanks for contacting us here. Are you on Elemental diet? Make sure you are doing Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol at the same time, as your bowel issues may be caused by Candida overgrowth, or bad bacteria and take Natren brand probiotics to address the root cause of your diarrhea and to resolve it long term. Other remedies may produce fairly quick results, but they largely address the symptom, not the cause. You can also check Jini’s Reduce Diarrhea Diet here if you’re not on Elemental diet.
