Self Healing Colitis and Crohn’s: The complete wholistic guide to healing the gut and staying well was created by Dr. David Klein, a nutrition counselor with a PhD in natural health and healing.

Klein says that all bowel diseases, including colitis, Crohn’s, diverticulitis, and irritable bowel syndrome can be healed completely despite contrary opinions.

He explains that the symptoms of bowel diseases are actually a sign that the body is trying to heal itself but this cannot occur until toxic diet and lifestyle factors are replaced with healthy ones.

The author had severe ulcerative colitis for eight years, healed himself on this plan and has remained healthy for over 25 years. He claims a 99% success rate within two to eight weeks with his clients and others who follow his healing plan, without the need for any medication.

Colitis and Crohn’s Diet Basics


Klein advocates the Natural Hygiene System, which is described as being the science and fine art of natural healing and healthful living. According to natural hygiene philosophy the body knows how to heal itself and all that is required is that we simply rest, avoid toxins and eat our natural diet.

Self Healing Colitis and Crohn’s claims that we are biologically adapted to eat a vegan diet and that this way of eating allows the bowel to remove toxins naturally and heal rapidly. During the healing stage the recommended diet is highly restrictive and is basically limited to juices, smoothies, fruit and certain steamed vegetables.

Dieters are advised to eat meals consisting of a single fruit only for easy digestion. Bananas and papayas are especially recommended when experiencing digestive distress. Raw vegetables are to be temporarily avoided with the exception of celery in green smoothies

Many other foods are to be avoided because they cause irritation to the bowel. These include spices, salt, meat, dairy, beans, soy and grains. Caffeine should be eliminated because it depletes the healing energy of the body. All fatty foods are to be discontinued during the healing phase.

After the initial healing phase the diet can be expanded slightly to include certain sources of fat such as avocado, olives, durian, coconut, nuts and seeds, but a fairly restricted vegan diet must be followed for at least the first six to twelve months.

Recommended Foods

Banana, papaya, grapes, pear, melon, mango, peeled apples, cherimoya, plums, raisins, dates, steamed vegetables (zucchini, broccoli, carrots, squash, sweet potato), green smoothies, fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

Exercise Recommendations

    Will you post my comment? – Dr. David Klein

  • Dr. David Klein

    Thank you for posting this. My responses to your cons:

    Very restrictive and eliminates many foods including grains, legumes, meat, fish and dairy products.

    ** The Vegan Healing Diet Plan offers superior nutrition. People heal on it and their blood tests attest to the nutritional sufficiency of the diet.

    Must be followed exactly for reliable results.

    ** That is true. Eating otherwise perpetuates the illness.

    Will be very difficult to eat out and in social situations.

    ** That is true only if one believes it’s difficult. It’s easy to be healthy and feel great. Following the unhealthy heard does not serve us.

    The first phase diet appears to be nutritionally deficient.

    ** Blood tests and healing results confirm that it is not.

    Vegan diets can be deficient in many important nutrients, especially if not carefully planned.

    ** Yes. The Vegan Healing Diet Plan offers superior nutritional and healing benefits.

    Much of the information in this book has been taken directly from the writings of T.C Fry and Dr. Herbert Shelton, who were natural hygiene educators.

    ** That is a good thing. They were masters of teaching health science and guiding millions to health. We should be grateful for them and all teachers whose work serves beneficial purposes.

    Hey, i have severe Ulcerative Colitis for about 3 years. David Klein’s book has changed my life. The condition permeated every aspect of my life and i had no viable long term medication that can control it. When the only option the doctor could offer me was colectomy, i turned to specific diet and lifestyle modifications in a last ditch attempt to save my colon. I am currently following David Klein’s Self Healing Crohn’s and Colitis protocol. In 10 weeks my disease and my life has turned on it’s head. The healing that i have gone through has been incredible – there is still more to go and it has been one of the hardest things i have ever had to do in my life with many dark, dark days. Yet the process has been enlightening. I know for sure i can be 100% healthy again and stay that way too. I am here to encourage anyone who is suffering and unsure where to turn, to consider following a plan like the one proposed by David Klein.
