Breaking the Vicious Cycle is a must read for anyone with Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis, Celiac Disease, Cystic Fibrosis, and Chronic Diarrhea. Even if you do not follow her plan, it is simply a book which is finally getting the recognition it deserves. Elaine Gottschall's daughter had Crohn's Disease at a young age. She is now fine. The diet is one which has no di or polysaccharides. Though this diet is tough, it seems to be right on the mark. The concept is to starve anaerobic bacteria residing in the intestinal tract. It is quite interesting that antibiotics are now being used more prevalently and effectively in the treatment of Crohn's, Stomach Ulcers, and other digestive problems. Her approach is simply a healthier, cleaner one which focuses solely on diet.

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.
