You are what you eat - especially if you have IBD. After surviving a severe case of Crohn's disease, Christie Korth found her way to health and wellness through the power of nutrition. In this book she lays out a holistic approach to dealing with IBD that can help those with the condition lead a healthy, pain-free life. Writing with insight and humor, telling her own story and stories of others who have found relief with her approach, Christie offers readers detailed nutritional information and the emotional support that is key for achieving digestive health.
Heal the inflammation in your gut caused by food intolerances - for good!
In addition to vital information on digestive wellness, this book contains 99 delicious recipes suitable for those with IBD. The recipes range from beverages to vegetables, salads to desserts - and most are free of the eight most common allergens that trigger IBD. All the information is presented in a practical and interactive way, including:
lists of "flare-up friendly foods"
sample menus, ideas for lunches "on the go"
quizzes for tracking your own food habits
shopping substitution cards
As Christie Korth writes, "I am living, walking, breathing proof that you can ditch this disease in its tracks and live your days symptom free. I have one question for you: Are you ready?"

Most compelling are the author’s anecdotes about her own battle with, and eventual victory over, her IBD. This book should be on the shelf of every person who suffers with, or who lives with someone who suffers with, IBD."

"I went into this book with pretty low expectations I expected the same advice my doctor has been giving me for years. This book blew past my expectations, and has completely changed the way I eat. Korth speaks with a voice of experience that the reader can relate to; she is not just a medical professional spouting advice, she is someone who has lived through Crohn's and understands what it is like. The author gives detailed explanations of different ways to treat IBD with whole foods, and backs them up with dozens of recipes in the back of the book. Although this book is geared at readers with the most severe forms of IBD, I found it extremely helpful as a moderate IBS sufferer.
