My Experience of an Elemental Diet for Crohn’s Remission

When your digestive tract is inflamed or ulcerated, it becomes very difficult for your body to digest food, or to absorb any nutrients from your food.

Elemental vs. Semi-Elemental vs. Polymeric Diets

As elemental diets grow in popularity - especially for use with SIBO - I've received a few emails from people (and doctors) suggesting that Absorb Plus (Original formula) is not actually an elemental diet product.

Should You Avoid Lectins?

Ever since Dr. Steven Gundry came out with his book, very slick videos, and pervasive marketing campaign about the evils of lectin-containing foods... I've been suspicious.
