this is the second time i have referred to this book. i loaned the first one out and did not get it back!
it makes complete sense and if an effort to follow the recipes in it is made, the results are fantastic.

HASH(0xa7540abc) out of 5 stars Rescued my mom March 4 2003
By A Customer - Published on
I urge colitis sufferers to try this book's advice, and to smile once more. Ten years ago, my mother was suffering from severe colitis symptoms: diarrhea, pain, mucus, weakness and heavy bleeding. Doctors offered her one option, and that was surgery. When things were looking pretty bleak, we came upon Dr. Gottschall's book. After only ten days on the diet described in the book, Mom showed significant signs of improvement. When she cheated, her syptoms worsened. Then she stuck to the diet and stayed on it the two full years, feeling better and better. After two years, she switched to a modified version of the diet which she maintains to this day. Mom is now energetic and virtually symptom-free, and knows what do if symptoms reappear. She has learned to pay close attention to what nutritious foods her body really craves, and usually it's right. Thank you Dr. Gottschall!

By Roy Jensen - Published on
If you have an intolerance for carbohydrates this book gives you the nuts and bolts of going on a carbohydrate free diet. The book explains why you have the intolerance and gives some recipes to get you started. I was feeling terrible and this book saved my life.

My daughter had a life and death gut problem. We found this book with its suggested diet and put her on it with our peditricians approval.
She was not expected to live past three, she is now 20 and thriving. It is a wonderful book for anyone struggling with Chron's, celiac or any other gut disorder.
I hightly recommend giving it a try before any surgery if possible.

HASH(0xa7543174) out of 5 stars ALMOST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, BUT IT IS! Sept. 4 2012
By Pam Grimm - Published on
If you have Chron's or Colitis, your doctor will not talk to you about how important your diet is. But this book will. Don't suffer with the side effects of drugs they give you, there are multiple, like the anorexia of sulfasalasine, and joint degeneration of prednisone. I have witnessed an almost instant recovery by simply eliminating dairy and starches in the diet. Elaine Gottschall is a mother who trusted an experienced doctor enough to try his method of dealing with this disease by diet control and in doing so saved her own daughter from surgery and a lifetime of wearing a colostomy bag. Take control of a loved one's recovery of this disease, or of your own, by purchasing this simple book. Your doctor will downplay it's effectiveness and push drugs, so you'll have to have the "guts" to be your own guide to recovery. It's not easy to give up goodies like ice-cream and bread, but it's also not easy to look for a bathroom every fifteen minutes, is it? I've heard a lot of sufferers at a support group say they know about Gottschall's diet, but they would rather order cases of Imodium than give up their pizza. Just plain dumb to me. Buy this book if you are smart. It will explain the science behind it, lists of good and bad foods, recipes, and more.

HASH(0xa7540ea0) out of 5 stars Natural Healing Oct. 13 2010
By La jolla family - Published on
If you don't want to take meds due to side effects and you want to cure yourself of your 'colon trouble', whatever that may be, I highly recommend you read the book and follow the dietary recommendations. After two years of suffering I was finally diagnosed with colitis. When I found that out I immediately turned to this book that I had previously recommended to friends. It was a lifesaver for me. I ate a lot of apple sauce and yogurt. I'd make sandwiches out of chicken and pickles wrapped in lettuce. I made muffins and bread out of ground nuts . . . it was hard at first to change my diet, but after a while it was second nature and it was just a matter of purchasing foods to have handy and bring with me. It paid off in a huge way by lessening my symptoms and eventually curing me.

Thanks Elaine.
