Elaine's many devoted followers are a testament to the diet's effectiveness. Several have tried the diet and failed, however, the majority of chronic Chrones Disease and Ulcerative Colitis sufferers who have read this book and strictly adhered to the diet have overcome their debilitating symptoms and gone on to lead normal lives. An internet listserver where followers of the diet exchange recipes, advice and interpretation exists as a support mechanism to avoid "cheating." Further reviews can be found at ( I took one point off for the fact that the book could do a better job of getting people started on the diet, which is when their systems are the most sensitive. Also, there are some(few)ambiguities, but these have been addressed (SEE by those of us on the diet. Being a chronic ex-sufferer of ulcerative colitis, I can attest to the fact that the diet has minimised my symptoms, alleviated the need for medication, and given me a great deal of self confidence in the discipline and subsequent triumph of attaining such a high level of health.

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.
