I am elated to be able to say that I am one more success story to add to this list of reviews. Ulcerative Colitis had been ruining my life for over 3 years when I finally decided to give the diet a shot. I put off trying it for so long because the three gastroenterologists that I had seen all told me that changing my diet would do nothing to relieve my symptoms. They prescribed me just about every medicine under the sun that can treat UC (asacol, colazal, canasa, cortifoam, 6MP, Remicade, and 3 stints on Prednisone), but none of the medications worked. (Well, the prednisone worked in the short term, but you don't want to stay on that for very long.)

I tried the diet essentially as a last-ditch effort in an attempt to avoid a colectomy (quite a drastic surgery to have at the age of 30). I began seeing improvement after only 3 days on the diet and my symptoms were completely gone after about a month. I have now been symptom free for 6 months and am no longer taking any medications. Thank God for this diet! My family and I are eternally grateful to Ms. Gottschall.

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.
