Chances are this is probably one of the millions of scams but just curious if anyone has read this book?

Hmmm.. Only $19. Not much to banish colitis or to even have symptoms subside just a little. Probably worth it, but the site sure looks suspicious.

I'm a skeptic. I assume anything that says it's going to "cure" or "banish" UC and doesn't involve surgery is only going to line the seller's pockets. I get furious at people who are willing to make their living taking advantage of people who are living with chronic disease and trying to make it through as best they can.

This site looks a little sketchy to me. The person talks about the lack of critical bacteria in a person with UC--well, isn't that why we're encouraged to take probiotics? And since UC is different for everyone, I don't know how she can promise "100% Satisfaction" for every person who tries it.

To all,

What really bothers me is, why...why oh why would you try to make money off of a cure? Anyone with half a heart will freely give this information away...so to go through the long process of writing a book, editing it and publishing it, for me is solely to make money; not to help people.

The author is obviously talking about a probiotic, which many of us are taking daily anyway. Just think of it...someone claims to have a "cure" for colitis and the discovery isn't on the news or in the papers...not even on the radio. If you plan to give this person your money, at least check online with the BBB before doing anything and then fill the rest of us in as to what this authors so called "cure" is really all about.

I agree on "someone who is willing to help would give it away for free"
That is why we are trying the SCD vs The Maker's Diet.
If I had some information that I thought would be helpful to all the friends I have met through these forums, then I would gladly share it to see others get well like my family members had.
Selling it seems selfish and inhumane.

It may cost money, but the information doesn't need to be put into book form, and sold. Especially since it IS deceitful in the first place, "there is no cure"
Some people make millions...while some merely maintain...
One site I get recipes from has a way to donate to help their site continue - to me that is unselfish.
I am definately a sceptic also - I wouldn't buy it.

Desperation is why people buy that kind of stuff....who cares if it's selfish on the part of the seller...it's more selfish on the part of the purchaser, especailly if he/she BELIEVES in the cure.

Please.

Do you not think that it would be unfair for someone to take advantage of the desperation of those that are sick and willing to try anything to get well.
Not just in my husband's case, but in a lot that I have seen through this forum - they are tired of being "sick".
I myself think that sometimes we are grasping at straws to get him better.
Is it not the same with the pharmacutical companies?
Maybe I say all this through frustration...
"try this, maybe it will work" is the same approach we have gotten from his doctor - I can see how some would be decieved to think the same way about other ads out there.
In the begining I didn't know enough( I still don't), and thought maybe there was something out there and we were just missing it...with that mentality, I could see "trying everything"
This forum has been a help for some, in somethings because you can ask other's opinions about how some things worked or didn't work for them. making a more informed decision.
You can say it's not wrong, but I will still believe it is. Thanks.

Nothing has changed since the beginning of time.

Of course it's wrong...but there will always be someone who "believes".....that's why it's so successful.

I won't get into gambling or religion....no difference in my opinion. Same road, different scenery.

I agree that bilking people who are suffering is evil. That's one reason the moderators here spend an incredible amount of their time removing spam and reporting spammers to the administrator.

There probably are some of these people who have convinced themselves that what they're selling works. And as for the people who buy, they are desparate. I just hate to see them throwing money away. It's easy sometimes to believe, because of the natural remission-flare course of UC. If I go shopping at Saks today and my UC gets better, then I go every Monday for the next three weeks and my UC is still better, it's tempting to credit "shopping at Saks" (or whatever) with the change. In the case of shopping at Saks, we know that's ridiculous, but with other things it isn't so obvious.

Hopefully some day there will be a medical cure, but we're nowhere close to that now.

That was an excellent example you gave, Judy. (Saks)

And as unpredictable as IBDs are, you rarely can tell what puts you into remission. We currently are wondering which of 4 medicines, or a dozen diet changes, or both?? (But thankful for remission!)

I believe there is a difference between encouraging someone to try something that has worked for you, and publishing and selling something as 'doctrine', so to speak.

People with Chronic illnesses need to be cautious! This is a evil world in that respect - a lot of deceivers.

No need to spend even a dollar. She uses food grade hydrogen peroxide mixed with water and olive leaf extract supplements. That is the big secret. And I think there is a diet you are supposed to follow as well.

Sounds like a very bad idea to me. I have seen references on the web that hydrogen peroxide can cause a type of colitis . And olive leaf extract is practically the same as an antibiotic.

No magic cure, sorry.

I hope you didn't have to pay to get that information =O)

I think probiotic is better than antibiotic!
