Not too many books change your life. This one does.

Diagnosed with Moderate-Severe Crohn's Disease, Aug. '03. Symptoms: night sweats, lost wheight, constant pain, tired, loose & frequent bowel movements.
Meds: 150 mg Imuran

Started Diet May '04
Syptoms improved within 2 weeks while meds didn't affect them at all.

Now, Feb '06
No symptoms. Med free since Jan '06. Still follow the diet strictly.

The book just makes sense, scientifically. I know the diet can be hard to follow at times, but the only motivation I need is to remember all the symptoms I had and look at the future I want to enjoy. ...our bodies were made to heal themselves, we just need to give our bodies the right food in order to let it.

I encourage you to read the book. Borrow it from the Library if you don't want to buy it.

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.
