Crohn’s disease causes inflammation in the digestive tract that can sometimes be soothed or aggravated by specific foods. While nothing will completely cure it, foods with probiotic or anti-inflammatory properties may help reduce the symptoms. Good examples include oily fish like salmon, yogurt, cheese, and low fiber foods. During a flare-up, some people find that it helps if they avoid caffeine, alcohol, sugary drinks, certain specific fruits and vegetable (including cruciferous vegetables and fruit juice with pulp) and fried or tough meat.
