Saved my life too...

I to have been a success story of this diet. Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 2 months after my son was born (14 months ago) I was put on a ton of meds that didn't work, and was told diet had nothing to do with it. I was taking so many pills and enemas where beforehand I didn't even take aspirin. Just before I tried the meds that would prevent me from having more kids, I tried the diet. I am so thankful I did. It is hard to stick to, but I think that is mostly b/c I am pregnant again and craving. Yes, that's right, I got well enough to get pregnant again. If you have the willpower and you want to be well, it will happen. I have been eating this way for 5 months now, and for about the first 4 I was still having small, day long flares and giving up hope. But I told myself to stick with it for 6 months STRICT and I did. You have to modify things. Like I can't eat too much honey or fruit at one time (or actually too much of any one thing at a time), but you learn as you go. I can't say how thankful I am, and how lucky I feel to have come across this. Nor how thankful I am Elaine wrote this book. After 5 months I am pill and med free, only being healed by the diet. It's not 100% yet, but seeing where I came from, I have NO doubts.
May she rest in the most beautiful peace for saving all of us.

For those of us who are relieved to have access to information which empowers us to take care of ourselves, this book is a godsend. With it I have been able to completely regain my health without the use of medications. It is a tragedy that this information is not available to everyone with digestive disorders, so that we all can make informed personal choices about how we wish to approach our treatment. People with the determination to regain their health will almost certainly benefit from learning about this diet.
