The awareness month surrounding these conditions occur in November,
so there is no better time than now to start the conversation around them.
Preventative Health – Gut Health + Immunity Support
Fermented foods do more than breed bacteria they generate happiness and health.
The food our ancestors made to preserve the harvest contain probiotics to balance bad bacteria in Peep’s gut and influence the release of serotonin – a chemical contributing to our feelings and more.
Is there a link between Crohn’s disease and diabetes?
The chronic intestinal inflammation common in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis appeared to increase the risk for type 2 diabetes, according to a study published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
Together with ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s is classed as an Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
It affects more than 80,000 Australians and is on the rise, particularly in Western countries, and increasingly in developing countries. It is predicted that 1 in 200 Australians will develop IBD.
During a disease flare, inflammation in the colon, rectum and gastrointestinal tract can become so severe that sufferers need to be hospitalised and/or require surgery.
The conditions are largely unpredictable with significant variation in the degree and pattern of symptoms affecting each patient.
The relapsing and chronic nature of the disorder has broader impacts on a person’s emotional, physical and social wellbeing.
Once a patient has been diagnosed with Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, or other IBDs, what is the solution:
✅Stein’s Self Eating Diet
✅Probiotic rich foods to modulate the immune system and prevent flare-ups

Study – Serotonin & Crohn’s flare-ups
Crohn’s and the second brain: Study identifies serotonin as trigger
A recent study suggests that increased serotonin levels may prevent the gut from cleaning out damaged or dying cells, a process called autophagy.
This, in turn, can change the composition of gut bacteria, resulting in inflammation and more severe disease in the gut.
Autophagy dysfunction has links with diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), such as Crohn’s disease, among others.
Autophagy is the body’s way of cleaning out damaged cells, in order to regenerate newer, healthier cells.
“Auto” means self and “phagy” means eat.
So the literal meaning of autophagy is “self-eating.”
The study is the first to demonstrate the interaction between serotonin, autophagy, and gut microbiota in intestinal inflammation, and more specifically, Crohn’s.
A new study has discovered a link between serotonin, autophagy, and the gut microbiome, suggesting that a high level of the neurotransmitter could be partly to blame for the inflammation in chronic gastrointestinal diseases such as Crohn’s.
Crohn’s is one of the two major forms of IBD, which causes the gastrointestinal tract to become inflamed, resulting in sores, ulcers, or scarring in the digestive system.
Health experts Trusted Source can describe autophagy best as the routine “housework” that the cells carry out to clean out impaired or malfunctioning subcellular elements.
The study adds to existing research linking IBDs to stress and the health of the gut microbiome.
The study, from McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada, appears in the journal Science Advances
