In intestinal inflammation there is no optimal diet plan. For a sensitive stomach or intestine, spicy, sour, too hot or too cold foods are generally unsuitable, as they irritate the mucous membrane. For mild to moderate complaints, a normal but light whole diet is recommended. A severe, advanced inflammation of the intestines may require a liquid diet. After an operation, artificial tube feeding is often necessary.
The most important thing in a diet for intestinal inflammation is to try it out: 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 you can tolerate well and poorly. Often complementary sports activities lead to a better well-being. If you have a food intolerance, for example against fructose or gluten, it is better not to experiment with the corresponding foods in order to protect your stomach and intestine.
Fruit and vegetables such as zucchini, fennel, banana, apple or pear are low in acid and are therefore considered well tolerated if there are gastrointestinal problems. This also applies to spices and herbs such as caraway, aniseed, coriander or lemon balm. Depending on individual tolerance, low-fat dairy products can be easily digestible.
A stool examination using the intestinal test INTEST.pro provides information about abnormalities in the stomach and intestines. For example, the test shows whether you have sufficient bifidobacteria. These are important because they inhibit certain inflammatory reactions in the intestine. In addition, 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.
