Controlling Crohn's Disease: The Natural Way
All her life, author Virginia Harper had suffered from the debilitating effects of Crohn's disease, an inflammatory bowel disorder that can affect both the small and large intestines, with symptoms including severe abdominal pain, bleeding, and diarrhea. Even with heavy medication her symptoms persisted, and so she turned to a natural treatment 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 diarrhea, painful digestion, cramps, and bleeding have never returned.
In "Controlling Crohn's Disease," Virginia Harper shares her personal story with readers, and details the eating program and lifestyle changes that worked for her. She discusses which foods to eat, their preparation -- including 39 recipes -- and how to combine them in the most effective ways. In addition, she offers advice on easy activities to help restore energy; covers the latest drugs and surgical procedures, including their side effects; and suggests ways in which readers can work with their doctors to become more effective partners in their treatment.
