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

Comprehensive and not too alarming naturopathic approach.
