Researchers have attempted to unveil the mystery of Crohn?s Disease and ulcerative colitis for years. The intricate complexities of these diseases still are not fully understood, and scientists persistently search for the missing puzzle pieces. While studies have been done on the effects of a restricted sugar diet and also the effects of probiotics, research combining the two approaches is lacking. However, preliminary scientific evidence has revealed clues to the credibility of the treatment that Dr. J. Rainer Poley recommends. His approach of suggesting a sucrose-restricted diet and taking a reliable probiotic, such as the one containing Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG (ATC53103), has initiated the continued remission of Crohn?s disease for the author?s daughter and others.
