Nutritional Therapy for IBD was founded in 2019 by Kim S. Beall, Pharm.D, and Anthony C. Beall, MD, to fill an essential void in providing evidence-based knowledge, tools, and resources to empower patients and aid clinicians seeking to leverage nutrition alongside medications in inflammatory bowel disease. Nutrition has been central to their son’s management of Crohn’s disease since his diagnosis in 2013 at age thirteen. Nutritional therapy has been an essential part of providing optimal care and has afforded him the best opportunity to manage life with Crohn’s disease successfully. Nutritional Therapy for IBD was founded with a desire to make evidence-based nutrition accessible to everyone suffering from Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
