Having just had a bad flare up of my Crohn's, and a long and scary stay at the hospital, I'm now on a mission to read up more on current healing and overall wellness for people in my situation. This book was the only one amongst a sea of books that I had any interest in reading as a jumping off point. The combination of medical and personal account in this book is incredibly helpful. Hearing accounts of those who have "been there, done that, got better!" really is a spirit lifter for someone com ...more

As someone whose husband was recently diagnosed with Crohn's disease and not pleased with the lack of information provided by the doctor, I decided to try to learn as much as possible about the illness. In recent years, I have embraced the idea of alternative or complementary medicine, and was curious what a natruopathic doctor would say about the disease.

The book is very concise and easy-to-read. It acknowledges reality by explaining Crohn's is incurable, and it talks about the negatives. Howev
A good look into the many holistic ways one can try to heal and live with Chron's and/or Colitis. THere were a lot of good resources in here and it was a good mix of doctor and patient stories.
More like 3 1/2 stars. This book is full of good information--it's a shame that it's so poorly organized. Props for mentioning all the best resources that took me 5+ years post-Crohn's diagnosis to find: CCFA (including fundraising and camps), John Kabat Zinn's mindfulness work, and books like Breaking the Vicious Cycle, The Second Brain, etc. The science in the book is refreshingly up-to-date, though I wonder if the book would have been more balanced if a younger patient's story had also been i ...more
Newly diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and a scary 10 day stay in the hospital. I had ordered this book before the flare had happened not really understanding what I was dealing with or how serious my situation would become. The book arrived while I was in the hospital (My very supportive boyfriend read it and brought it to me to read when he finished) .
I really appreciated the personal insights given by Dede . It's very well written and easy to understand. I feel like I have a much better unde

weeeeeeel, I can't really rate this book, since I co-wrote it, but I am excited that it is on Goodreads! Our first printing has sold out, so it looks like Hatherleigh, and distributor, Random House, will be reprinting at some point! The important things is the book is out there and available and already helping people! We are so grateful to Hatherleigh Press in Hobart, NY, for believing in us! Dede and Dr. Jessica Black
