I BROKE THE VICIOUS CYCLE, AND IT WORKED!

I broke the vicious cycle, and it worked!

I have been suffering from many digestive disorders for the past 10 years and seen dozens of doctors, all of whom only prescribed meds and MRI's but no nutritional advice. I was trapped in a vicious cycle of malnourishment and debilitating symptoms. This book explains the connection between starches and processed sugars and the toxicity generated from bacteria that reproduce uncontrollably, which therefore cause digestive and neurological diseases. It not only helps you understand foods from a molecular level, but it also backs information with clinical studies on carbohydrates and sugars as being the culprit of such diseases. I wish I would have found this book earlier. I have been on this diet for 8 days now, and my symptoms for IBS, stomach pain and discomfort have reduced to barely none a day. I have completely eliminated all sugars and breads, starches, and do not feel malnourished, but rather relieved. Elain Gottshchall's book is a breakthrough in medicine and nutrition!

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.
