Fast forward to 2016...my so called IBS began worsening to my symptoms EVERYDAY instead of just once in a while. I have severe IBS symptoms, which are similar to Celiac Disease, however, I think I have severe IBS not Celiac. However this book helps me and it is worth every penny that I paid for the book.
I looked for close to a year for just the right book, all before this one were SO SO. But this book is EXACTLY what I was searching for because it is really a MEDICAL TEXTBOOK as it is well researched and we'll written by a nurse and nutritionist.
In my opinion, this book is superior above other Celiac Books because ALL of the information inside is helpful for the Celiac Disease patients, their families and also a great reference book for the medical field. That daid, let me state below the many PROS of this book:
1 A must read book to have for a Celiac Disease Patient or for an IBS patient....this book explained to me the difference between each of these. I was misdiagnosed with IBS but I have Celiac Disease. This book is my go to textbook.
Even if you just have OBS, I believe that it will help you because it should still help you with IBS symptoms.
2 Beginning of book has a list of seven LEARNING OBJECTIVES. All of these are covered in this book in great detail.
3 Chapter 7 Management. .. this covers the OK Foods, and what foods to avoid. This is shown in a easy to use Table for. This was the most helpful chapter in the book in my opinion. I discovered that I was eating several NO NO Foods that were increasing my symptoms. This has been just what I needed.
4 Chapter 9 Case Study....this is also my favorite chapter because it is just like my own symptoms and I learned so much from this chapter.
5 The back of book has WORKS CITED with 110 different helpful links to Websites and links.This book was highly researched.
If you or a family member has Celiac Disease, then I highly recommend this book. For me personally, this book is my light in a dark storm, it gives me hope.
Thank you authors for writing this book, it has really helped me!
The book is so informative that I can't begin to list its benefits. I WILL admit to reading it three times so far, highlighting AND underlining pertinent information, taking copious notes and copying/visiting many suggested web sites (remember, it's only been a month)! I do suggest keeping a small, spiral notebook for listing the most important suggestions, page numbers, web sites, support groups and product names...especially if you're a visual/tactile learner like myself (meaning I remember much more if I take notes).
As new questions arise, I return to the book for more information. I don't know how long it will take for me to develop a "habitual" gluten-free lifestyle, but this book has been a necessary and invaluable resource in the meantime!
