Breaking the Vicious Cycle: Intestinal Health Through Diet
I've owned this book for years while I've had ulcerative colitis. However, for the first time I followed this diet strictly (no cheating) when I had my last severe flair up. Within 7 weeks i was completely clear. In the past I had followed it somewhat closely and it took me ages to recover This time, I did as she said, followed it completely. I am all better and now I have reintroduced all the nonallowed foods into my diet and am enjoying them (in moderation) and enjoying great health. I tried the medical route for 10 years - expensive drugs, regular GI visits etc., and this is what worked best and it is FREE! It even worked better than treatments with my naturopaths though the naturopathic care has enabled me to recover my energy and my good helath etc. This is the fastest fix, though it isn't easy following the diet but much better than the embarrassment, discomfort and energy draining effects of ulcerative colitis, especially the rather extreme bouts I've been through. Thank you to this book and to Lucy's Kitchen who also carries helpful books and for her support encouraging me to strictly follow the diet as it could take a few months but it works in vast majority of people.

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.
