I was diagnosed with UC in August of 2000. The symtoms developed during my pregnancy with my third child. I was immediently put on prednisone and another drug. The symtoms would temporarily subside, but any time I was tapered off- it would worsen. This cycle continued for a year and a half until I was put in the hospital because of dehydration, anemia, extreme weight loss- I was told that my best option was surgery- removal of the entire colon. As soon as I got home, I decided it was time to educate myself. I am thankful to have found the website. I immediently bought the book and began the diet. When I realized that I must be totally committed to this way of eating- I experienced rapid progress. I have now had a year of no symptoms and no medication! I still do not understand the science of why it works although it's explained in the beginning chapters- what is critical is that it works! I enjoy a diet of great foods- fruit, vegetables, meat, cheeses, nuts, and the best yogurt smoothies! My life has been restored!

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.
