1 Review
In Western populations the prevalence of ulcerative colitis is approximately 1:1000 and of Crohn's disease, 1:1500, these being the two most common IBDs. David Rampton has assembled an excellent team of contributors, including a patient and a specialist nurse, to explain the background, clinical features and diagnosis, and management of IBD. The easy-to-follow style and simple diagrams will aid the reader in diagnosing and managing this stressful disease.

The notion that changing your diet does not affect a digestive disorder is just a retarded thing to say!
Everything you put in your body most certainly affects inflammation and/or intestinal flora
and bacteria growth.
If you want to relieve symptoms of Colitis and IBD, please use the SCD diet. It worked for my son immediately and has been well researched for over 50 years!
