Abstract

Stress is widely believed to play a role in the development and pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and several studies of mind-body programs have suggested benefits in this patient population. Here we describe a case report of a young man with a flare in Crohn's disease- related symptoms that improved in response to a comprehensive, multimodal, mind-body program and the development of a novel IBD treatment center that incorporates mindbody approaches, nutrition, and other modalities to provide more holistic and patient-centered care for individuals with IBD.
