This book has changed my life. No joke. I am a woman in my 20's and I have had crohn's disease for many years. After being diagnosed 2 years ago I was depressed and felt powerless. No cure is a terrible prognosis to live with. I found this book and figured I had nothing to loose. It's a little dull to read, but the bottom line is that the diet works. My new doctor was shocked to find that I am not on any maintanence drugs and never have been, but I live a basically symptom free life. All thanks to this diet. My recent x-rays are proof that the diet is working. I won't lie to you, the diet involves some sizable sacrafices. Some days it's really hard to not eat whatever you want, but feeling great makes it worth it. A year into the diet I find my tastes have matured and I love many foods that I wouldn't have discovered if not on this diet. Overall, I'm much healthier in every respect. I no longer live in fear of flare ups and the damage they do. Best of all, I can avoid harmful drugs. Try the diet in this book. It could change your life, too.

For those of us who are relieved to have access to information which empowers us to take care of ourselves, this book is a godsend. With it I have been able to completely regain my health without the use of medications. It is a tragedy that this information is not available to everyone with digestive disorders, so that we all can make informed personal choices about how we wish to approach our treatment. People with the determination to regain their health will almost certainly benefit from learning about this diet.
