Lots of naturopaths and alternative docs like to push these mucilaginous herbs - slippery elm, marshmallow, kudzu, arrowroot, etc., on the theory that they "coat the intestine." Well, they're also loaded with starch. Might make you feel better temporarily, but in the long run they are nothing more than food for pathogens. Very bad idea.

I was introduced to this diet 7 years ago. Began the diet with my physicians knowledge and was able to go prescription drug free within a year. The diet really works and the book not only gives the how to and recipes, it gives the scientific information to back up the evidence. I highly recommend this book/guide to all that suffer from intestinal disorders.
