The Food Hospital: Laura, aged 22

Laura has been suffering from Crohn’s disease for 8 years which causes ulcers in her mouth, sores on her lips, extreme bloating and a rash amongst other symptoms. The condition affects her both physically and mentally. Treatment usually involves steroids which can have side effects such as depression, osteoporosis, cataracts and hallucinations. With the usual treatment being undesirable Laura hopes that The Food Hospital can offer a more natural and safer approach to managing the condition.
