I didn't think it was possible!

I've been a Crohn's disease sufferer for 4 years "officially", but symptoms have been around since college. Though probable causes of Crohn's vary (gut flora overgrowth, genetic deficiency, etc.), this book's diet(way of life) addresses them all. I was hospitalized earlier this year due to a flare-up, and I took a very serious look at my life. I had no energy, my work was suffering immensely, and I had lost too much weight. I'm in the fourth month of the diet - 10 times a day is now 1, am nearly off ALL medication, other symptoms are disappearing, energy is increasing, and I've started to gain weight back. I had to ramp up to the diet and learn how to shop all over again, but this book and Dr. Scala's book were a godsend. I personally added a probiotic supplement to the regimen (Primal Defense) which has helped others NOT able to follow the diet 100%. This book is EASILY worth the minimal expense.

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.
