Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) also known as Irritable Bowel Disorder (IBD) and Crohn’s Disease are painful digestive tract issues. They exhibit similar symptoms which include persistent diarrhea, constipation, cramping, and abdominal pain. They are very different conditions but they can be treated similarly.
IBS is considerably milder than Crohn's and doesn't cause the inflammation or changes in bowel tissue and in many cases can be more easily managed through diet, lifestyle and stress management.
Crohn's disease is a condition of chronic inflammation potentially involving any location of the gastrointestinal tract, but it frequently affects the end of the small bowel and the beginning of the large bowel. In Crohn's disease, all layers of the intestine may be involved and there can be normal healthy bowel between patches of diseased bowel.
Health experts believe that faulty communication between the brain and the intestinal tract is one cause of the symptoms for IBS/IBD. In some people, this miscommunication causes abnormal muscle contractions or spasms, which often cause cramping pain. The spasms may speed the passage of stool, causing diarrhea. Or they may slow it down, causing constipation or bloating.
Many people who have IBS seem to have unusually sensitive intestines. It isn’t known why their intestines are more likely to react strongly to the elements that contribute to IBS. People who have IBS may start having symptoms because of one or more factors, including:
- Eating (though no particular foods have been linked with IBS).
- Stress and psychological issues, such as anxiety and depression.
- Hormonal changes, such as during the menstrual cycle.
- Medicines, such as antibiotics.
- An infection in the digestive tract, such as salmonella.
- Genetics. IBS may be more likely to occur in people who have a family history of the disorder.
Scientists have also linked immune system problems to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn’s. Usually, cells of the immune system defend the body from harmful microbes – bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other foreign substances. The body doesn’t usually respond negatively to all microbes, however. Many microbes are helpful, especially for digestion. And so the immune system leaves them alone.
If there is an invader that needs to be eliminated, your body’s defense reaction begins. This immune system response causes inflammation. Immune system cells, chemicals, and fluids flood to the site to overcome the offending substance. After the substance has been disabled or removed, the immune response ends. Inflammation subsides.
For some reason, though, people with Crohn’s disease have an immune system that reacts inappropriately. The immune system may be defending the body against helpful microbes by mistake. Or, for some other reason, the inflammatory response simply will not stop. Either way, over time, this chronic inflammation in the digestive system can result in ulcers and other injuries to the intestines.
The Hallelujah Diet has been used for over 20 years by people around the world as they endeavored to restore their health. Instead of looking at the symptom, it focuses on the root cause of the problem providing the most efficient and effective way to support the body’s self-healing ability. It was designed to address nutritional deficiency and detoxify the body simultaneously.
We call it the Miraculous Self-Healing Body because we know that when we start putting the right foods into the body that the body will respond positively with healing. Just like if you cut your finger, it will heal; our inside cuts-like IBS, will heal if we stop cutting the inside by consuming the wrong kinds of foods.
A dietary change is necessary. By gradually transitioning onto a plant-based diet you will strengthen your immune system, increase your energy, and help support your body in maintaining health.
Begin the transition to the Hallelujah Diet by eliminating all foods that cause irritation especially all animal sourced foods. Drink plenty of fresh, raw vegetable juices and BarleyMax everyday to help provide the body the nutrition that it needs to begin the rebuilding process. For the first six to eight weeks, eat only 100% cooked plant foods to help ease digestion. All raw vegetables should be eliminated during this initial period of time. After allowing time for healing of the digestive tract, start incorporating raw vegetables in the form of well blended green smoothies or blended salads. Raw, fermented foods (sauerkraut) juice may aid healing and as raw foods are added back it can be added to salads. As the colon heals, slowly transition to an 85% raw, 15% cooked plant-based diet. The optimal goal is to combine this new approach to eating with plenty of pure water, exercise, fresh air, rest, and stress management.
Whether you’re treating your IBS/Crohn’s through conventional or alternative means transitioning onto a modified Hallelujah Diet in conjunction with the Hallelujah Diet IBS/Crohn’s Support System will put your body into its best possible state to augment that treatment.

Over the last 20 years we have found that one of the most effective ways to strengthen the immune system is by drinking the pure juice of young barley and alfalfa plants. Scientists have studied something called the grass juice factor as they have tried to understand why these particular juices provide such profound benefits. BarleyMax is the highest quality living juice powder and the most nutritionally dense product available.
Its synergistic formula provides unparalleled results. BarleyMax has long been one of the cornerstones of the Hallelujah Diet System because of its ability to deliver life-changing results. Simply consume three servings throughout the day to strengthen your immune system, detoxify the body, boost energy and improve your health. You can enjoy three unique flavors: Original, Berry, and Mint. It is also available in capsules. The signature product of the Hallelujah Diet, BarleyMax, is a pure green juice powder and the most nutritionally dense broad-spectrum living food product available today.Add to Cart
Professional Strength Probiotics
Probiotics play a critical role in the development, support, and function of the immune system (about 80 to 85% of the immune system resides in the colon). A healthy intestinal tract is host to about 3 pounds of bacteria. About 85% of those should be ‘friendly’ flora. Most labels on probiotic brands boast a high amount of bacteria (CFU), but very few make it past your stomach acids to your colon, where probiotics are needed most. Hallelujah Diet Professional Strength Probiotic delivers bacteria all the way to your colon – giving you far more effective results.

Digestive Enzymes help to break down foods, removing some of the strain on the digestive system. They also significantly increase the absorption of nutrients from the foods we eat. Take one digestive enzyme in each of the following situations:
- With each fresh juice for the first three weeks to help ensure as much nutrition is provided to the cells to help the body heal
- With all cooked food
- With smoothies and blended salads
- With all raw salads
Betaine Hydrochloric Acid (HCL) Pepsin & Gentian Root
Many people have diminished stomach acid production as they age. Adequate stomach acid is essential in the digestion of dietary proteins. Betaine HCL Pepsin & Gentian Root is a combination of nutrients that are beneficial for promoting healthy digestion. Gentian, a wonderful bitter herbal, combined with Betaine HCL maintains a healthy pH in the stomach, supporting protein digestion, mineral absorption, small intestine pH and B12 absorption. Take 2 with each meal or as needed.

Flora DHA Flax Oil
Flax oil is an excellent source of essential omega 3s which help to offset the inflammation caused by omega 6 foods. According to Prescription for Nutritional Healing studies show essential fatty acids may reduce Crohn’s symptoms and aid the body in maintaining remission. Take one to two tablespoons daily.

Vitamin D3 With K2
Research studies have found that not only are people dealing with Crohn’s disease significantly more likely to have poor vitamin D levels than healthy people, but lower vitamin D levels are also significantly and independently correlated with increased severity of the symptoms. Additionally, a 2012 study suggests that vitamin D supplementation may help reduce the severity of IBS flare-ups or even prevent them altogether. One study showed that 31% of the people dealing with Crohn’s were vitamin K2 deficiency. Together, Vitamins D3 and K2 will synergistically perform stronger than if they are taken individually. Best when taken with a little bit of fat.
Note: Vitamin D3 1000 IU (CAN)Add to Cart
