Has anybody on this forum read books by Jini Patel Thompson?

There is a particular book called "Listen to Your Gut", which I have been interested in for sometime now but it is very expensive.

Can someone please tell me if its got any useful information for a colitis patient trying desperately to avoid surgery?

I've already wasted far too much money on rubbish supplements and bogus books and don't want to waste any more money...

Please advise

I have bought both of her books, as well as alot of her recommended supplements..The "Listen to your Gut" book definitely helped me understand this disease alot better and some things to help improve it. It switched my way of thinking about treatment from "allopathic" to more "natural." I bought it at my sickest moment and I havent looked back since. No I dont follow it word for word, but there is some good information in there. It is expensive, but it was beneficial for me at the time. I still refer to it from time to time and glad that I bought it. I know that princesa also follows it pretty well too. I think Amazon may sell used books for a little cheaper if you are interested. I dont want to persuade you to buy it b/c people have different severities of the disease and different frames of mind when it comes to acceptable treatments.

LTYG is the most comprehensive IBD alternative treatment book out there, bar none, and I've got a library full of 'em. The second edition is a huge book with a CD - hence the price. There's alot of information you won't find elsewhere about antimicrobials, probiotics and a wide variety of therapies and supplements. It's not intended to be followed to the letter, but to be a guide to all of the healing options you may never hear about from your doctor. You decide what combination of therapies will work for you. It will be an invaluable resource IF you're looking for alternatives to the traditional drugs and surgery.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999.
Maintenance dose sulfasalazine.
Probiotics, l-glutamine and fish oil caps. George's aloe vera juice. Oregano oil antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal. Long-term remission with only minor blips.
