Understanding inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and its treatment poses a great challenge for both the patient and the doctor. In this chapter, diet and lifestyle, psychological aspects and treatment of IBD are discussed. The impact of diet, smoking and alcohol drinking on IBD is also presented. Due to the fact that patients with IBD more often suffer from depression and anxiety, standard treatments for these conditions are also described. Moreover, differences in bacterial content in gastrointestinal (GI) tract between IBD patients and healthy individuals are characterized. Finally, information about cooperation between the patient and the doctor is given.
