Breaking the vicious Cycle: Intestinal Health Throgh Diet

After being totally confused about what to do about my digestive issues. A friend recommended this book. I have been following the diet for about 5 weeks now and as I have stayed with the suggestions fairly precisely I have found relief. My diarrhea and abdominal pain has stopped and I am eating many more foods than before. I have kept all starches out of my diet and for now this seems to be the correct avenue. I trust that one day in the near future I will be able to add some dissacharide sugars in the form of starches back in without causing upset and disturbance. I have eaten organic Stonyfield yogurt in the place of her home-made yogurt suggestions and this has worked fine for me.

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.
