There is an older version that's cheaper, if you can locate one. It doesn't offer quite the extent of info as the revised version and doesn't have an interactive CD. If you're interested, I have one I could send you. I just recently purchased the new one. If you do choose to order the new version, there's a money-back guarantee, so you'd have nothing to lose. You can keep it and try it out for up to a year and return it if you're not satisfied. She even pays return postage.
If you're interested in supporting healing through natural supplements, alternative approaches and dietary modifications and you're committed to do the work and give it your best effort, it's worth its weight in gold. If you prefer to stick to traditional treatment options - drugs and surgery - and are looking for a quick fix, you probably won't feel it's worth the money.
I found her book very helpful and I really liked her open-minded approach. She's a Crohn's sufferer who has tried all types of non-traditional healing options after meds and surgery failed her. It's nice to realize we're not victims and we don't have to be defined by our disease... we do have control over our choices and can take positive steps to promote our own return to health.
