Crohn's disease is a debilitating inflammation of the bowel and gastro-intestinal system. In North America alone there are hundreds of thousands of people effected, yet very few people have heard of it.
There is, currently, no known cure for Crohn's disease. To make it wose, suffers appear, from the outside, to be healthy people, and there's no real hint of the person being unwell. However, anyone suffering from this disease will quickly tell you otherwise. One important consideration to all sufferers of Crohn's is the maintenance of a good diet. Because the disease often imflames the linings of the small intestine, then nutrient absorption is reduced. Therefore, a careful look at you diet is very important.
Two areas to be very concious of is spicy food and alcohol. It is best to avoid either of these, or, at the very least, serioudly reduce their intake. Both these things are known to exacerbate the disease's symptoms.
