Not only a diet...A CURE!

To anyone suffering from an IBD, read this book and follow the diet. I have been following diet for only 4 months and docs already see signs of reversal. It's a strict diet that must be followed religously but it beats pain, meds and surrgery. You get used to it like any other diet. Side effects (in addition to IBD being cured): immune system is bolstered (less colds-I swear!), skin clears up, weight stabalizes, cholesterol decreases and mood improves as your intestinal lining heals. What more do I have to say? Do this diet for 1 year and heal. Don't be a slave to the medical/drug community. ... There is also a listserve, online that one can access to ask questions or just get support from others on the diet or those who have gotten well with it. The author herself is there to give expert advice! I must warn that this listserve is a wonderful bonus as it's nice to have a support group but it's not for the meek. This diet takes conviction and those on this listserve can be tough cookies (made w/ nut flour as the diet instructs). The main point is THIS BOOK WILL GET YOU YOUR LIFE BACK-DO THE DIET!!!!!!!!

I was given Elaine Gottschall's book, "Breaking the Vicious Cycle." I stuck with the instructions and within only a few days, much to my amazement, the bleeding and diarrhea stopped! I've been on this diet for 5 months, following it faithfully and feeling wonderful. All symptoms have disappeared! I am a new person with energy as I never had before.
