renewed hope

Our son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis when he was 10 years old, 7 years ago. We were sure that he was dying during the worst of this disease.

This is the "gospel" of Elaine Gottschall and Dr. Haas. Gospel, of course, meaning "good news". Elaine's own daughter brought the disease under control by use of the guidelines outlined in this book. This book is written pretty much in layman's terms by an author who, because of her dedication and commitment to spreading this "gospel", makes herself accessible to her readers and has a continuing conversation with them via e-mail on the SCD website. If you are looking for profound literature, this isn't the book for you. If, on the other hand, you are yourself, or know someone who suffers from UC, Crohn's, IBS, IBD, or any other gastrointestinal disorder (even as simple as excess flatulence) for that matter, this book can help and uses scientific evidence and illustrations, thanks to the author's educational background. With a firm dedication to follow the guidelines set forth in this book, you can find renewed hope, faith, and help for these debilitating and gruesome illnesses. My son has his life back thanks to God, this book, and a couple of "disciples" who won't give up!

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.
