- A. Tanguay - I honestly may owe my life to this book.As the title of the review says...I may owe my life to this book. I say that without hyperbole or exaggeration. I was not doing well when I found this book and followed it's advice...I improved.
Years ago I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, or UC for short. The disease is unmerciful, embarrassing, and potentially deadly. Especially for a person who doesn't see the doctor much, and waits 'a little longer for things to improve'. By the time I was in the hospital, I was many pints low on blood and on death's door frankly.
The doctors diagnosed me, gave me a transfusion, and sent me home with a battery of drugs. One of them was the steroid Prednisone. I had an incredibly bad reaction to this drug.
I continued to take the massive amounts of other drugs the doctors had prescribed for me, but did not improve. Within two months I was back in the hospital, anemic and sick. While in the hospital, a teaching doctor and a group of students came by. This doctor insinuated that whatever happened to me would be my own fault since I wasn't taking all the drugs they prescribed. I found it ironic that he was insinuating that I might die because I wasn't taking the drugs that made me want to kill myself...but I digress.
While in the hospital I asked doctors what I should and shouldn't be eating. They had no real thoughts on the subject. I'm no doctor, but even *I* thought that there's no way that what you put in this system wouldn't affect it. I went home after this stay and found this book.
I'm not trying to jump on the anti-established medicine bandwagon, but I immediately started to turn around. I quit the drugs I was prescribed and I followed what the book advised, ate what it recommended and began to improve. It took some time but eventually I was completely symptom free. I now eat what I want...which maybe isn't always the best thing...but now it's my choice.
That said, I'm sure your results may vary. All I can attest to is my own experience. And frankly, in this instance, I was completely failed by the traditional medical community, and saved by this 'alternative' treatment.
Thank you Elaine Gloria Gottschall.
