Let me start off by giving my Crohn's history. I have had one surgery--five years ago--.... My specialist had me on a combination of [meds], which did nothing. He also told me flat out that diet has NOTHING to do with Crohns. Well, he was WRONG! I am in the sixth month of this diet, and am doing great. Within a day of starting of the diet, my fistula shrank, and other than a few bumps in the road--mostly due to me foolishly going off my meds, as well as one big cheat one night with a few pieces of cake--my fistula pain has disappeared, and the fistula has shrunk to the point of almost being non-existent. The last two months have been problem-free. While it took me a while to get used to the diet and get rid of my sugar/carbo cravings, i now am totally used to it. It is great getting all that processed junk out of your system, and my eating habits are now very "19th Century." I know the diet doesn't work for all--which it clearly states in the book--but I urge all with Crohn's to at least give it a try. If it works for you, you won't be able to imagine how good you will feel!

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.
