From the Author
Having addressed more than 1,000 people in different parts of the UK on the subject of Probiotics for Crohns and Colitis I know that it strikes a chord with people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Knowledge that billions of bacteria live in each persons lower intestine and affect our ability to resist disease opens up a new and optimistic area for the listener or reader. The idea of manipulating those gut bacteria (the microflora) so that there is a higher proportion of beneficial microbes is attractive. When it is clear that the microflora are essential for the continuation of IBD and that there are fewer beneficial bacteria in people with Crohns or Ulcerative Colitis it makes sense to consider probiotic supplements. With growing evidence that these supplements reduce the severity of IBD there is much to be gained from reading my clearly-written book.See all Product description

There are no 'miracle cure' claims in this factual account but if your bowels sometimes feel like a warzone then at least you will learn how to send in some 'friendly' reinforcements to help win the battle.
The scientific research and specifics of the probiotic strains named are both thoroughly and honestly presented. It offers ibd sufferers and their families the information they need to make a rational judgement about this potential treatment. Probiotics are classified as food or food supplements and so do not have the disadvantageous side effects of drugs. First hand comments from patients, plus the question and answer chapter, answers practically every question one would want to ask.
This book is a must for those sufferers of ibd who want to try an alternative to conventional treatment. Bacteria are shown in a very different light!
