Dietary modification: Inflammatory bowel disease is a broad diagnosis that when associated with a specific set of symptoms and pathology findings is called crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis. Dietary modification is part of the treatment for any intestinal disorders. Eating a gluten free diet is a good place to start. When the disease is associated with immune imbalance, medicatons are required.
