Medications - The Use of

Elaine writes:
My book was written to be an adjunct to medical practice. There are few contradictions between the two except that when one begins to get well, most of the people on the list have been weaned off of medication believing that drugs are for crisis management and, generally, for IBD are not preventative. However, proper diet in IBD patients is certainly preventative.

We do recommend probiotics after or during antibiotic therapy. However, in more serious bowel diseases like Clostridium difficile or uncontrollable diarrhea, drugs are there to save your life.

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.
