I ENCOURAGE THOSE WHO ARE ILL WITH IBD TO SEE THEIR DOCTORS, AND TAKE THEIR MEDICATIONS, WHILE EATING PLAIN GOD-GIVEN FOODS IN ORDER TO REGAIN HEALTH AS, "BREAKING THE VICIOUS CYCLE..", BY ELAINE GLORIA GOTTSCHALL WHO TELLS ME WHAT TO EAT AND NOT TO EAT IN THE BOOK. IT TELLS ME ABOUT DR'S. SIDNEY VALENTINE HAAS AND SON'S DIET, "THE SPECIFIC CARBOHYDRATE DIET" THAT ELAINE GOTTSCHALL EXPLAINS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE USE THIS DIET WHEN WE HAVE IBD, IBS, CROHN'S DISEAE, ULCERATIVE COLITIS, DIVERTICULITIS, CELIA DISEASE, CYSTIC FIBROSIS, CHRONIC DIARRHEA AND OTHER DIGESTIVE DISEASES TO REGAIN INTESTINAL HEALTH THROUGH, "THE SPECIFIC CARBOHYDRATE DIET".

I WAS DIAGNOSED IN 1994 WITH CROHN'S DISEASE. I HAVE BEEN IN REMISSION SINCE 1997 WITHOUT MEDICATION EXCEPT FOLIC ACID AND FREEDA VITAMINS BY READING THIS BOOK. I HAVE HAD IBD MORE THAN FOURTY TWO YEARS [ALL MY LIFE, SOME FORM OR ANOTHER, STARTING WITH DIARRHEA, SPASTIC COLON, ANGRY COLON, IBS, YOU NAME IT, ETC.].

I NEVER FELT WELL IN MY CHILDHOOD OR MY ADULT LIFE UNTIL I GOT THIS BOOK AND IT HAS GIVEN ME BACK MY LIFE, FULL OF ENGERGY AND ALSO BEING GRATEFUL TO GOD FOR THIS GOD SENT BOOK FOR OTHERS TO BE HEALTHY, TOO.

I AM NO LONGER ANEMIC, HAVE COLDS, EAR ACHES, INFLUENZA, PNEUMONIA, SINUS HEADACHES; ACHES AND CRAMPS IN MY LEGS, STOMACH, OR ARM; HEART PALPITATIONS, GALL BLADDER PROBLEMS, SKIN WORTS, OR SKIN PROBLEMS, MY COLON IS NOT SPASTIC OR INFLAMED, NO MORE DIARRHA OR VOMITING; TEETH DO NOT HAVE ANY MORE CAVITIES OR HAVE TO BE PULLED, OR ARE NOT LOOSE; OR HAVE ANY MORE POCKETS IN THE GUMS OR BLEEDING GUMS. HAD TO STOP DRIVING BECAUSE I COULD NOT TELL MY DISTANCES: BANGED MY HEAD AGAINST THE DOOR FRAME, PUT THINGS ON THE TABLE WITH A BANG BECAUSE I THOUGHT I HAD MORE ROOM, I AM FINE NOW. NO MORE BLOODY NOSE, YEAST INFECTION, EAR INFECTIONS OR ATHLETE'S FEET. MY BONES ARE NOT THINNING ANY MORE BUT GETTING STRONGER ON THIS DIET. MY WEIGHT IS GREAT TOO. ALL I NEEDED WAS GOOD HEALTHY NUTRUTION GIVEN TO ME IN THIS BOOK.

I WAS TOLD TO FIND PSYCHIATRIC HELP AND THAT ALL THIS WAS IN MY HEAD. WHEN IT WAS THE FOOD I WAS EATING ALL ALONG. I AM GRATEFUL AGAIN FOR THIS BOOK TO HAVE BEEN PRINTED FOR ALL TO GET HEALTHY BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT TO DO NOW.

THERE ARE SEVERAL WEBSITES TO GET INFORMATION FROM, AND AN E-MAIL ADDRESS NEAR THE BACK OF THE BOOK TO CHAT ABOUT THESE DISEASES, AND,"THE SPECIFIC CARBOOHYDRAT DIET,"WHICH I FIND VERY HELPFUL TO BE ABLE TO TALK WITH OHTERS LIKE MYSELF.

I WISH MY GRANDMOTHER HAD KNOWN ABOUT THIS BOOK.

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.
