Crohns-colitis-solutions.co.uk is a division of the IBS and Gut Disorder Centre.
We specialise in the treatment of IBS, Crohn's disease and Ulcerative colitis. Why? Because the NHS can seldom come up with a cure for these conditions. All they can offer are drugs which sometimes - and only sometimes - have a palliative effect on the symptoms. What we do is look at the causes because this is the only way to help Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative colitis symptoms in the long term.
Our practice was runner-up in the 2009 CAM Awards for Outstanding Practice.
We see patients in the UK in London and Oxford and at our clinic at 9 Weymouth Street, 5 minutes from Harley Street, London W1, but can also help people living elsewhere by means of postal/telephone/email consultations once they have filled in the three questionnaires that we use.
Please take a look through the articles and success stories appearing on this website. They all contain details of cases from the IBS and Gut Disorder Centre and mention some of the Crohn’s disease treatments and Ulcerative Colitis treatments we use.
Over the years we have been able to help many patients with both Crohn’s and Colitis. We have done this through a combination of nutritional medicine and diet - but not by means of any one standard diet for every IBD sufferer. The key, if you have inflammatory bowel disease, is to find precisely the right diet for you. That does not mean doing a very long and tedious elimination diet. It means doing the very best possible food intolerance test to pinpoint exactly which foods are causing your symptoms.
If you have any questions about our approach and its effectiveness in cases of Ulcerative Colitis, we suggest you look at pages 124-128 of Power Healing by Dr Leo Galland. Dr Galland is recognised as one of the leading gut specialists in the USA and the case history he describes in Power Healing is a perfect example of how so many gastroenterologists have nothing to offer their patients except drugs..
Like Dr Galland we believe there are other important factors involved in patients with Ulcerative Colitis - such as yeast overgrowth, food intolerances, unusual bacteria and sometimes parasites - and an intelligent, caring practitioner will investigate all of those and treat those which are found.
If you have any questions at all about the role of food intolerances in Crohn’s disease, please look at the Lancet, Vol 2 (1985) pages 177-180 which says:
“Twenty patients with Crohn’s disease took part in a controlled trial in which remission was maintained by either an unrefined carbohydrate fibre-rich diet or a diet which excluded specific foods to which the patient was intolerant.
Seven out of the ten patients on the exclusion diet remained in remission for six months, compared with none out of the ten on the unrefined carbohydrate fibre-rich diet.
In an uncontrolled study, an exclusion diet allowed 51 out of 77 patients to remain well on the diet alone (without drugs) for periods of up to four years.”
We were fortunate enough to come runner-up in the CAM Awards 2009 for Outstanding Practice. We have been trying hard to maintain this standard ever since, and have worked hard to provide our patients with the best possible cutting-edge help, advice and information.
