Chron's disease also closely related to another chronic inflammatory condition called ulcerative colitis. Chron's disease and ulcerative colitis together are known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

Chron's disease can occur at any age. Males and females both are equally affected. Smokers are at high risk to develop Crohns disease compared to nonsmokers. Family history is also one of the cause.

Ayurveda management

Vaidya health care provides treatment for chron's disease in Kerala. As per Ayurveda, Chrons can be linked to Grahani disease. Grahani means an anatomical term to explain small intestines mainly Ileum and jejunam. Any inflammation to this particular part by excessive Doshas that is either Vata, Pitta, or Kapha can cause a number of symptoms like that of Chrons disease, anywhere through the digestive system. As per the doshic involvement and predominance, the degree and nature of symptoms vary.

The primary causes of this Grahani disease are Mandagi which means poor appetite and digestion, irregular, irrelevant or incompatible diet habits and more junk food. Not following of the healthy diet habits that is Pathya in few digestive disorders, specially the conditions of irritable bowels and post diarrhea are also one of the main causes of this disease.
