What Can I Say?

November 24th, 2004

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.

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.
