I have Crohns, luckily a mild case and drink only super pasturized milk that has a shelf life of 1 month, go figure. I tried steroids (after living with Crohns for 5 years and not knowing about it) and that wrecked havic on my body. My doctor has given me Cypro (but he doesn't believe it works regardless of all the evidence) and I have been symptom free during the times I take it and for about 2-3 weeks after (what a relief now and then) but he won't give it to me more then once every half a year or so.

In Germany there is new research that has gotten a 70% remission rate. Every two weeks you take a pill with worm eggs. The worms have a 2 week life span in the intestine and seem to refocus the body's fight on them rather then on itself. To bad it will take 50 years for the idiots in the FDA to get around to it.

Also, having served a long time in the military, I found MREs cause constipation and that mitigates the effects of Crohns. Also coconut is supposed to do the same.

I've also read that some 5 million Americans have the disease without knowing.

I think the super pasturized milk is heated high enough and long enough that the bacteria don't survive. Obviously the bacteria in pateurized milk are not killed when milk has to be refrigerated and still spoils sometimes before the date on the container.
