Controlling Crohn's Disease
The Natural WayeBook - 2002
A drug-free, surgery-free approach for those struggling with this inflammatory disorder. More than a million Americans suffer the pain, fevers, and bleeding of Crohn's disease, colitis, and other incurable inflammatory bowel disorders (IBDs). While most patients are treated with harsh prescription drugs or invasive surgery, these merely mask or postpone the symptoms. All her life, author Virginia Harper had suffered from the debilitating effects of Crohn's disease. Even with heavy medication, her symptoms persisted, and so she turned to an all-natural regimen consisting of simple changes in diet and lifestyle. The results were truly remarkable. Within a year, she was not only pain-free, but symptom-free. Some twenty years later, Harper's painful indigestion, diarrhea, cramps, and bleeding have never returned. In this important book, Harper shares her life-changing experience. You'll learn about the eating program that has worked for her: which foods to consume, how to prepare your food, and how to combine them in the most effective ways. You'll also find advice on easy activities to help restore your energy. Plus, she discusses the latest drugs and surgical procedures, including their side effects, and tells you how to work with your doctor to become an informed patient-and a more effective partner in your IBD treatment.
