With intestinal inflammation , there is no optimal diet plan. For a sensitive stomach or intestine, spicy, sour, and too hot or too cold foods are not recommended as they irritate the mucous membrane. For mild to moderate symptoms, a normal but light whole food diet is recommended. Severe inflammation of the intestines may require a liquid diet. Moreover, after an operation, an artificial tube feeding is often necessary.
The most important factor for a diet that addresses your intestinal inflammation is to simply try it out. You should test what is good for you and what you should better do without. It is important that you keep a nutrition diary so that you can understand exactly what foods you can tolerate well and which ones you cannot. Along with a smart nutrition plan, sports activities often lead to better overall well-being. If you have a certain food intolerance, for example against fructose or gluten, it is better not to experiment with these types of foods in order to protect your stomach and intestine.

For example, the test shows whether you have sufficient bifidobacteria. These bacteria are important because they inhibit certain inflammatory reactions in the intestine. Additionally, a healthy intestine should have sufficient vitamin B12. Since a person cannot produce the vitamin himself, he needs bacteria to do this for him. For this reason, it can be helpful to regularly consume dairy products that contain exactly this type of bacteria.
