Reaching For Answers To Crohn's Diseaseby Martha Kalichman
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.
J. Rainer Poley, M.D. currently practices as a pediatric gastroenterologist at the Brody Medical School at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. He graduated from the Medical University of Innsbruck, Austria and completed his pediatric and gastroenterology residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
Martha Kalichman, a registered nurse, graduated from Norfolk General Hospital School of Nursing in Virginia. For many years she has diligently researched health issues that have affected her husband and two children.

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 those 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 Sarah's story and guidelines for this "prescription." For those interested, medical references are available for a look into the research.
Reaching for Answers to Crohn's Disease will live as the story that opened the door for a better life to sufferers of this potentially debilitating disease.
