A Community in Support of Research-driven, Integrative Approaches to Treating Inflammatory Bowel Disease
The Food Rx Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to helping individuals with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) heal. Our philosophy on treating IBD is simple, yet fundamentally unique in the world of medicine. We believe that Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis can be controlled when you effectively address the physical, mental and lifestyle components of the disease.
Food Rx gives you tools to research how Food, Nutrition, Integrative Medicine (IM) and Exercise can positively impact your health and wellness and induce long-term remission of IBD. When you combine the right diet with a program to reduce stress and strengthen the immune system, you have a powerful recipe for dramatically improving your quality of life. We support the IBD community at large through:
Educate patients on the medicinal benefits of food and complementary therapies
Free patient research tools and fundraising for scientific studies
Support for patients struggling with IBD
Promote causes that advance the science of Integrative Medicine
