I've been a Crohn's disease sufferer for 4 years "officially", but symptoms have been around since college. Though probable causes of Crohn's vary (gut flora overgrowth, genetic deficiency, etc.), this book's diet(way of life) addresses them all. I was hospitalized earlier this year due to a flare-up, and I took a very serious look at my life. I had no energy, my work was suffering immensely, and I had lost too much weight. I'm in the fourth month of the diet - 10 times a day is now 1, am nearly off ALL medication, other symptoms are disappearing, energy is increasing, and I've started to gain weight back. I had to ramp up to the diet and learn how to shop all over again, but this book and Dr. Scala's book were a godsend. I personally added a probiotic supplement to the regimen (Primal Defense) which has helped others NOT able to follow the diet 100%. This book is EASILY worth the minimal expense.

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.
