There was some very useful and informative information however it was mainly detailed technical information that a scientist might understand and I found it difficult to follow when there were whole chapters of technical names and terms.

Thanks to the dietary recommendations in this book and a probiotic supplement,my IBD symptoms have virtually disappeared! I feel great! I can go out in public without fear of an unexpected "backdoor eruption."

This should be the second book you buy after you get a good overview book on IBD (I recommend Cliff Kalibjian's). Once you know the details of your disease, you want to know what you should and shouldn't eat, which supplements you should take, etc. and this book addresses those questions. It discusses why you should still be eating vegetables (just make sure they're well-cooked!), avoiding red meat, and eating plenty of fish. Also make sure you are getting your soluble fiber.
I like how he makes it clear that changing your diet won't "cure" your condition (anyone who says otherwise is a quack), but that you can ameliorate many of your symptoms. And he provides references to studies and research that verify his statements.
An important addition to any IBD patient's bookshelf.

When I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease I wanted to know exactly what I was facing. Initially I met with frustration, as my doctor could not give me straight answers about the disease itself or the medications that might help me.
Purchasing this book was an integral step in my self-education about this disease. This book gave me the answers I was looking for. In layman's terms it details the mechanics of the digestive system. It suggests what to eat and what not to eat, yet it reminds the reader that every person is an individual and therefore each diet will require slight modifications depending on food tolerances.
This book is not a panacea for IBD, however it can help a patient manage his/her condition and improve the quality of life dramatically. It can also help lower the need for medications. I wholeheartedly give this book my highest recommendation.

Just click on Buy Now. AS a life long IBD patient I was doing really well until this past winter when a major setback hit me. As those who suffer from IBD know, sometimes desparation sets in and one looks for new advice. This is the BEST collection of advice I have ever read! The advice here is right on and it pointed out some mistakes I had made with my diet. I followed the diet and increased my vitamin and mineral regimen per his directions. Follow this advice, try one new thing at a time, even the author tells you one must do what is best for your individual gut. I bought one of these books for each of my adult sons who suffer with IBS too! AN EXCELLENT ADDITION TO MY REFERENCE LIBRARY, Buy it, follow it and be well.!

My daughter was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease five years ago and needless to say I have done a lot of research. I found The New Eating Right for a Bad Gut very informative and helpful, but what I like most about the book is the author's positive attitude toward the disease. I have read many books about IBD that left me depressed and with a feeling of hopelessness. This book leaves you with the feeling that you can help yourself and that you do have some control over your body. Also, you don't have to be a doctor to understand it. I highly recommend it.

By A Customer on Feb. 17 2003
Format: Paperback
Dr. Scala's book opens with the quote, "Let thy food be thy medicine", and suggests diet and lifestyle habits that are least likely to cause flare-ups.
For me, some of the things I liked most about Scala's book included: Discussion of the nutritional challenges for people with IBD (vitamins, minerals..); Listings of foods that typically cause problems (including processed foods, sugar, corn, whole nuts, many dairy products...); A lot of information about dark skinned cold-water fish (like salmon) and the therapeutic benefits of their essential oils; The suggestion to keep a food diary to help one confirm what is/is not working, but also to document more than just food (emotions, stress, etc.), serving sizes, environmental factors; "End Of Day" self evaluation - How well did I do today? (a self-critique of food and lifestyle choices).
As someone who follows the SCDiet, many of the foods Scala suggests are contrary to what I follow (i.e., he suggests oatmeal, cornflakes, branflakes as foods that don't cause flare-ups; he suggests these for their low-residue/irritation characteristics but I would not eat them because of the complex carbs they contain and the flare-ups that might result from digesting them) but I choose to recognize this book as very useful nonetheless. One can certainly make one's own adjustments to Scala's suggestions, taking a patient-centric approach to healing. We're all different, and what works for one patient may require modification in another.
I especially agree with Scala's insights into whole-body aspects of IBD, and the way outlook, exercise, stress, love, etc. can play a role in one's condition.
