If you've been looking for a very detailed, step-by-step plan that works quickly and effectively to induce disease remission (average duration 3-6 weeks) and reclaim your natural state of health, this is the book for you. A wonderful, natural alternative to damaging prescription drugs and surgery, dozens of clinical, medical studies show an elemental diet is as effective as steroids (prednisone) at inducing remission for inflammatory bowel disease.
"Elemental diet therapy is as effective as steroids in inducing remission, whilst avoiding steroid side effects."
Dr. Bhupinder Sandhu, MD
"In children with active Crohn's disease, exclusive nutritional therapy
shows a more rapid effect than steroids in inducing clinical remission
and is markedly more effective than steroids in producing healing of

"THE IBD REMISSION DIET
has been a dramatic, positive step forward in what I see as an ongoing
healing process. I followed the diet for two and a half weeks then
tapered off the shakes gradually over the course of another one and a
half weeks. Within the first week of returning to solid food I
experienced the first solid bowel movements I had had in almost a year.
My digestion was quiet and painless and food was properly broken down.
My energy levels stayed up and my weight has stayed on. Although I may
experience flares again in the future, the fear factor is almost gone
now that I know I have a powerful tool for managing them that will not
cause horrible side effects or damage my immune system. I would highly
recommend this diet for anyone with gastro-intestinal problems or
anyone seeking a balanced, natural approach to long-term health."

"Having recently undergone the second of two major surgeries for severe ulcerative colitis, I decided to follow THE IBD REMISSION DIET
for two weeks with the goal of restoring balance to my gut, losing some
weight, and generally "detoxifying" my system. After following the
Diet, my digestion has vastly improved and I have had no blockages at
all. This has led me to question whether my surgeries might even have
been averted had this elemental diet program been available to me

Background/Aims: Patients with Crohn's disease are at risk of developing short bowel syndrome if they are treated with repeated operations. We examined the effect of preoperative nutritional therapy with elemental diet on the interval until, and the outcome after, surgical treatment in patients with Crohn's disease.
Methodology: We reviewed the records for 73 patients with Crohn's disease who underwent intestinal resection in our department between January 1, 1974 and December 31, 1996. Thirty-two of them had not received elemental diet (No ED group) and 41 had received elemental diet therapy (ED group) before the first resection.
Results: The median interval between the onset and first resection was 19.3 months for the NoED group and 67.5 months for the ED group (P = 0.0005). All patients received ED therapy after the first resection. The incidence of second resection was significantly different between the ED and the NoED group after the first operation. (P = 0.045).Conclusions: Elemental diet therapy is effective in prolonging the interval between the onset and first resection and in reducing the incidence of second resection. The initial introduction of elemental diet therapy is useful in the management of the clinical course of Crohn's disease minimizing surgical intervention.

THE IBD REMISSION DIET was written in response to readers of Jini's first book (LISTEN TO YOUR GUT: Natural Healing & Dealing With Inflammatory Bowel Disease & Irritable Bowel Syndrome), who wrote in asking for more detailed instructions on following the Bowel Rest Elemental Diet outlined in Chapter 3 of that book.
LISTEN TO YOUR GUT is a comprehensive compendium of a variety of natural, alternative therapies that work to address specific symptoms of IBD and IBS. THE IBD REMISSION DIET however, focuses on just one of those natural therapies (the elemental diet) and then adds a natural supplementation plan to produce an effective program for inducing disease remission.
Whilst LISTEN TO YOUR GUT provides you with a variety of treatment options and you put together your own plan based on your individual symptom profile, THE IBD REMISSION DIET is a set, step-by-step treatment program that is the same for everyone - the only variable is the length of time you stay on the Diet.
THE IBD REMISSION DIET is definitely the fastest way to heal yourself, but it requires a lot more self-discipline and involves short-term, radical change. You can also attain solid, long-term healing using LISTEN TO YOUR GUT but it usually takes longer to achieve the same results - as you pick and choose from the therapies listed and go at your own pace. Both contain very valuable information and healing tools for healing Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
