Breaking the Vicious Cycle is a must read for anyone with Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis, Celiac Disease, Cystic Fibrosis, and Chronic Diarrhea. Even if you do not follow her plan, it is simply a book which is finally getting the recognition it deserves. Elaine Gottschall's daughter had Crohn's Disease at a young age. She is now fine. The diet is one which has no di or polysaccharides. Though this diet is tough, it seems to be right on the mark. The concept is to starve anaerobic bacteria residing in the intestinal tract. It is quite interesting that antibiotics are now being used more prevalently and effectively in the treatment of Crohn's, Stomach Ulcers, and other digestive problems. Her approach is simply a healthier, cleaner one which focuses solely on diet.

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.
