Seems impossible- but it is the cure

What can I say? I am the daughter of a doctor, so I did everything my doctors told me to do for 15 years: took prednisone, immurane, asacol, ate the "bland" diet. Why wouldn't I? They should know since my doctors work for a famous University. The result was I was sick 50-70% of every year. I was on predisone for 10 years straight. Then, Immurane for two years, but I was still sick several times a year. I gave up, went to the surgeon and was ready to end the years of suffering. I do not know how I found the website and this book, but I can only say I am eternally grateful! It has been a year. I am off all my meds for the first time in 15 years. I feel amazing: wokring out every day, starting a family, tons of energy. Elaine's committment to this diet and, therefore, to those who can benefit from it, is so incredible. If you are wondering if you should give it try, ask yourself what you have to lose. You have nothing to lose, except more days of your life lost to this unnecessary illness.

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.
