I am a 76 year old woman that has suffered with IBS for years which led to UC. This last year my condition of UC got worse and worse with bleeding, diarrhea, etc. I was getting weaker and weaker, homebound with no ability to do inside and outside chores. I had a sigmoidoscopy and a colonoscopy, and all doctors could do was tell me what my symptoms were. They gave me medications that were of no help at all; in fact they made me worse. 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. I have also lost 17 lbs, now a small woman, stabilized at 120 lbs since starting this diet. I have been able to expand my meal varieties on my own and have been able to make some delicious dishes. Now, my question is, when can I go back to a regular diet of eating carbohydrates and sugars (in moderation, of course) - especially concerning going to restaurants and friends' homes for meals? Also, can I use balsamic vinegar on my salad?

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.
