When I was told about this book I was very skeptical but after being deathly ill for three months and going to the doctor many times only to be told they either don't know whats wrong with me or they think my symptoms are all in my head I certainly had nothing to lose.
Its been a week since this wonderful book arrived and its been a week since I've had a flare up.
Changing my diet has done more for my condition than all the pain killers the doctors pushed in my face.
I'm still somewhat weak but I don't wake up 10 times a night to go to the bathroom anymore, My cramps are mostly gone. I no longer see blood when I go to the bathroom.
my BM's are normal again.
The recipes in this book are easy to follow and the diet is still somewhat normal tasting.
I was so happy to find out I could use garlic,onions and butter.
I miss red wine ,but someday I know I'll be healthy enough to drink dry white wine.
I do wish there was some sort of calorie count with these recipes and an actual list of white wine brands I can drink later on, but those are minor complaints in comparison to being able to stay awake and leave my house again.
This book has become one the most important books in my life.

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.
