About the Author
Carol Sinclair came to live in Britain in 1979 from her native New Zealand, where she had worked in advertising for many years and wrote a cookery column. During her long search for the causes and possible cure of IBS, she has read many books on the subject of digestion and nutrition, but she believes nothing compensates for an intimate acquaintance with the symptoms. She lives in Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire, writes for magazines and is the author of a book on her husband, the painter Ray Harris-Ching.

15 years ago I was having back troubles. I also had difficulty putting socks on in the morning and going down stairs. Within an hour Id be much better. It turns out I had ankylosing spondilytus (sorry for my spelling!).
Doctors told me it was an incurable desease and put me on long term anti inflams and codine. I also developed mild ibs- which is infact the same illness, just a different facet of it.
Fast forward to now and after years of pain I have discovered purely by accident that it is not incurable. The guy who wrote the foreword to this book discovered the cause and how to minimise the disease years ago. I guess theres no money from drug companies just to cut out certain food groups.
I emplore anyone with inflammatory arthritis to try this diet. My quality of life has improved drastically and I no longer need medicines to control the symptoms, just follow the diet. The reason I am writing this now is last night I had a huge bacg of chips and now am suffering horrible back pain and bad guts. Itll be fine by tomorrow.
The book itself is not exactly a gripping read and the style of writing is not to my liking.
However the information contained within it is immensely valuable to anyone with AS.
Buy it- its less than the price of a nhs perscription!
Its hard giving up the regular foods like bread & potatoes & biscuits & cakes but the benefits outweigh the loss of the foods. It has a good recipe section and I have started to experiment using my own recipes.
Im sure people who suffer with IBS would find this book useful.
Author honestly acknowledged this.
