Crohn's disease is an inflammation that spreads to the deeper layers of the intestinal wall. It is most commonly found in the ileum (the second part of the small intestine) and the first part of the large intestine (cecum), which are known as the ileocecal area. However, the disorder can develop in any part of the digestive system, including the anus, stomach, esophagus, and even the mouth. It can affect the entire colon or there can be a series of ulcers next to each other in one part of the colon, and it can also develop in the form of multiple scattered clusters of ulcers.
It is not known what causes Crohn's disease, but the cause could be an abnormal allergic reaction to cereals, milk-based products or to bacteria, or a virus in the gut. The cause may also be a familial predisposition to the disease although the genetic link is not clear enough. Crohn's disease is incurable.

Almost every third person has problems with some intestinal disease that has become a disease of civilization. Intestinal problems are most often caused by insufficient movement, especially in people who perform most activities in a sitting position, as a result of which the walls of the intestines become flabby, and the intestinal muscles lose their tension. Denatured, one-sided and often strong foods slow down intestinal motility, so that half-digested or even undigested food stays in the intestinal tract for a long time. Undigested food retains toxic substances and is absorbed through the intestinal mucosa and taken to the blood. In this way, the intestinal flora is destroyed.

Bowel disorders are the cause of many other life-threatening illnesses (bowel cancer) that cannot be treated with self-help. Every person can prevent bowel disorders through proper nutrition, digestion and a healthy lifestyle. If you already have problems with the intestines, a proper lifestyle and diet, it is still possible to repair damaged intestines and destroyed intestinal flora. Such a correction requires a lot of patience, but it is effective.
