As someone following a similar dietary approach who has noticed improvements in my condition, this book helped to reassure me that I was doing the right thing by staying clear of pharmaceutical drugs and focussing on
The dietary approach I follow draws from Sara Ballantyne's book "The Paleo Approach", Josh Axe's book "Eat Dirt" and "Breaking the Vicious Cycle" by Elaine Gloria Gottschall. They all follow the core principles of reducing/cutting out sugars and carbs from your diet.
I rarely leave reviews but Professor Hunter is truly an authority on all things 'gut'. Never before have I read a logical, pertinent yet succinct discussion on how to manage life with IBD.
The difference with this book is that it outlines the LOFFLEX dietary treatment of Crohn's (not UC). The basis of this is that by depriving bacteria of food residues, the immune attack ceases. So, after following an elemental diet, you proceed to do a gradual reintroduction of foods to see which one provoke symptoms.
I know the advisors at Crohn's Colitis UK (CCUK) use it for reference, and in my opinion, this book should be given out to everyone when they are diagnosed.
If you have Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, or any other form of IBD, this book is a must-read.
