I have this book, & love it! I am definitely not a believer in the "diet = cure" school of thought- I'm with you, Swollen Colon! But this is not a diet, per se. It's really just nutrition tips, & simple, healthy, easy on the gut recipes. The thing I like about
the book is that the author never claims you will be cured if you eat only what she suggests, & she never tells you to go off your meds. For a month or so when my last flare was really awful, I only ate the recipes from this book, & had no increase in symptoms/problems, etc. It's basically common sense eating for the patient with UC/Crohn's.
