Item description for Reaching for Answers to Crohn's Disease by Martha Kalichman...

Overview
Researchers have attempted to unveil the mystery of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis for years. The intricate complexities of these diseases still are not understood fully, and scientists persistently search for the missing puzzle pieces. While studies have been done on the effects of a restricted sugar diet and also the effects of probiotics, research combining the two approaches is lacking. However, preliminary scientific evidence has revealed clues to the credibility of the treatment that Dr. J. Rainer Poley recommends. His approach of suggesting a sucrose restricted diet and taking a reliable probiotic, such as the one containing Lactobacillus GG [Gorbach and Goldin], has initiated the continued remission of Crohn's disease for the author's daughter and others.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reaching for Answers to Crohn's Disease?

Simple, Without Side Effects and Effective Long Term  Nov 8, 2008
Imagine a prescription for a devastating disease that is simple, relatively inexpensive, without side effects and effective long term.

Author Martha Kalichman did just that when faced with her fifteen year old daughter's diagnosis of Crohn's Disease. She called upon her knowledge as a registered nurse, her interest in medical research and her faith to find a better answer than the harsh medications currently offered.

In this reader-friendly narrative, Martha shares the journey her family traveled in search of better options. The result is an incredible discovery that is backed by medical research.

Written in conjunction with a pediatric gastroenterologist, J. Rainer Poley, M.D., who completed his residency at the Mayo Clinic and now practices in North Carolina, this powerful little book contains Martha's story and guidelines for this "prescription." Medical references are provided for those interested in looking into the research themselves.

Reaching for Answers to Crohn's Disease will live as a trailblazer for improved health and quality of life for sufferers of this potentially debilitating disease.


 
An inspired book that gets us "back to basics."  Oct 30, 2008
I was first given excerpts of this book to read when my 12 year old was hospitalized for acute ileitis. Her symptoms were similar to that of Crohn's, and following the advice in this book has been a blessing. How long will it be before we wake up and realize that sugar is not good for us in any way, shape or form? How long before the medical world can come out from under the drug industry and get back to basics? My child had doctors that listened, and I told them about this book. It was literally a gift from God for our family.
