5.0 out of 5 stars A "Must Have" for anyone catering for a Crohn's sufferer, 17 Nov 2009
This review is from: Crohn's & Colitis Diet Guide: Includes 150 Recipes (Paperback)
Everyone's experience of IBD seems to be different so I have found it difficult to find any effective guidance on diet, as the wife of an acute Crohn's sufferer, to ensure that what we're serving up is going to help rather than hinder.
The other multitude of books in my "Crohn's library" all seem to contain conflicting advice, and some even recommend ingredients which really should be avoided altogether, particularly during a flare-up.
This book is different in that it really fits with my husband's illness, and it provides medical explanations for it's recommendations. It has enabled me to cook with confidence a far greater variety of food than we had felt safe to enjoy previously. It also provides some really useful tips for how to modify other recipes and make some potentially aggravating ingredients safer.
Some of the ingredients are American (or are given American names), but I've not come across anything that can't be found or replaced easily.
Following the advice in this book has had an amazingly positive impact on my husband's condition - I wish I had found it as soon as he was diagnosed and saved myself a lot of worry (and money wasted on other books), and him a lot of discomfort!
