Lots of naturopaths and alternative docs like to push these mucilaginous herbs - slippery elm, marshmallow, kudzu, arrowroot, etc., on the theory that they "coat the intestine." Well, they're also loaded with starch. Might make you feel better temporarily, but in the long run they are nothing more than food for pathogens. Very bad idea.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
