The only diet that works for my husband.

My husband had an operation about 2 years ago to have part of his intestine removed. He had been on all kinds of medications before that but even those weren't working all day great anymore, plus he was starting to get many side effects from the drugs (water retention, frail bones, and more!). Just months after the operation the pain returned to his abdomen. This time, he was determined to learn more on the topic, read many books, went to see homeopaths, read more books and tested a few different diets. One of the first one was the SDC diet, as described in this book, which is a bit tough if you're not yet convinced of the effectiveness. He tried a few other diets which did help a bit but the problem was still there. When he finally came back to Elaine Gottschall's diet and stuck to it for a bit longer, he became totally healthy. He's now strong, full of energy, and totally off any medications. Once in a while he cheats a bit (garlic bread, or ice cream!!).
This is totally worth reading. Very informative and will change the life of your loved ones. The diet can be a very balanced in every way (vitamins, proteins, minerals).
Thank you Elaine for giving my husband hope and his life back.

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.
