Fanatical Adherence

Hi all!
I just wanted to thank all of you for your time and effort in doing research, keeping this list, and tirelessly answering questions. I have been on the diet for just a little over 7 weeks and have seen DRAMATIC improvement in my health. I am getting my life back! I spent the day going to my kids games with not a stomach cramp in site and boy, I'm sure you know how good that feels! That is something that I couldn't have done 2 months ago! The looks on my kids faces as they looked for me and saw me in the crowd was something I will never forget.

So, thanks Elaine, for taking so much of your time to research the diet and write the book. Your detective work concerning the "whys" of the success of the diet have helped me, and I'm sure countless others, see why FANATICAL adherence to the diet it so important. The fact that you are available for questions amazes me. You are a very generous person.

This diet takes a different way of thinking (trust no one....) and I am thankful everytime ya'll "uncover" another illegal, or provide encouragement. I also want to thank all on the listserve who tirelessly answer questions, provide recipes, and are simply "there" to let others know that they are not alone in the fight to regain their health. For those who want to follow the diet in the way that it is meant to be followed, you guys are a godsend. In fact, there are many of us in the same situation, and together, we are strong!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The book should be required reading for anyone with Crohn's disease and we wish gastroenterologists would read it as well. The diet is a real alternative to the drug based therapy from the medical community.
