My Mum WAS suffering from ulcerative colitis (colitis ulcerosa) condition for over 6 years until I found this book. Then everything changed when she followed the author's recommendations and stopped eating fruits (fructose) and synthetic sweeteners. She had a very bad case where her bowel was active in 9 out of each 12 months, taking sulphasalazyne, steroids, etc. (tonnes of it!). Then after starting the diet bleedings never returned, it is over 2 years now. Her doctor still does not believe it was the diet, but cannot give a reason why her bowel healed and the condition is not coming back. I highly recommend this book to anyone suffering from colitis. This book, if taken seriously, will truly change your life :)

This book really helped me. Colitis can also be triggered by stress. A book I highly recommend for controlling stress, and therefore
an onset of colitis is Creative Mindshaping: Create A New You, Create A New Life. Inspired By The Olympics And Paralympics

The bonus is it can also help with your goals

I got diagnosed in May last year with Ulcerative Colitis after suffering for months, and then went on Mezavant XL, which made me sick in the end. I was absolutely desperate so I purchased about 3 books on the condition, including this one.

Having bought and read this book in July I can safely say this book has changed my life and made it for the better, whereas before I was made a prisoner in my own home due to this condition, suffering from stomach cramps and diarrhoea. Within 3 - 5 days I was feeling much better, the best I had felt in MONTHS. This book talks about bowel disorders and their effects on the bowel, but most importantly includes detailed information on the different foods which are GOOD and BAD for colitis, crohns disease and others. I was very surprised at what I found out, especially how badly some sweeteners (sucralose especially) and sugars (fructose corn sugar in sweets and sugary drinks) affect colitis.

I overhauled my diet drastically and started using lactose free products and avoiding foods/drinks with certain sweeteners and ingredients and over the past two months the condition has drastically improved.

I would go as far as to say that this book is so useful it could threaten the money made by the NHS from selling Gastro-resistant and Auto-Immuno drugs, and of course I don't think they would give you information if it meant them losing money and I truly believe that to be the case.

To this day, since July 2012, I'm still not using medication (which seems to confuse my gastroenterologist) to control the disease and learning which foods/drinks I can eat or avoid. If I ever came across an food/drink ingredient that irritated the bowel I would just take 1 Imodium and cut out that ingredient then I'd be back to normal within a couple of hours.

Do not despair, buy this book!

For me it helped with my food intake, what to advoid and what to eat. since then I have had a hospital appointment, and I am now told to eat what I like, within reason, my Colitis will flare-up at least once a year, but it is under contol.
Thank you for this book.
