This week we have been asked to do a short interview with Nana Akua for her health and well being show on BBC Three Counties Radio. We talked about the possible future of treating Crohn’s and Colitis with probiotics as well as the benefits some people get from including fermented foods in their diet while suffering from the disease.

Crohn’s and Colitis are diseases of the gut, that affect every part of the body. They’re debilitating, widely misunderstood and there is no known cure. Every day, Crohn’s and Colitis has a devastating impact on the lives of 300,000 people across the UK – the real number could be double that. The gut is like your body’s second brain, so when it goes wrong, it can affect every aspect of your life – from your hormones and digestion, to your energy levels and mental health. Stigma and misunderstanding around the conditions, means thousands are suffering in silence. It takes guts to talk about Crohn’s and Colitis – so stand with us and everyone affected by these devastating conditions on 1-7 December.
