In this completely revised and updated edition of his classic book on treating "bad gut" diseases, Dr. James Scala presents a new dietary plan that has been proven to help inflammatory bowel disease go into remission. Scala firmly believes that nutrition is preventative medicine and food is the vehicle of its practice. His drug-free food and lifestyle program offers relief from the pain and embarrassment of living with these mysterious and chronic ills while providing reassuring step-by-step guidance on:

  • Developing a personal testing program to identify foods that cause, aggravate, or relieve flare-ups
  • Keeping a food and lifestyle diary
  • How food allergies affect IBD
  • What to do if you are lactose, alcohol, or sugar intolerant
  • Reducing inflammation through complex carbohydrates, proteins, dietary fiber, and the omega-3 oils found in fish and leafy vegetables
  • The do’s and don’ts of food selection
  • Techniques for stress reduction and overall fitness
  • Vitamin and mineral supplements, and their recommended dosages
  • Specific cooking methods that can prevent flare-ups
  • Medicinal foods that bring flare-ups into remission
  • The role stress, anger, fear, and other emotions play
  • The healing power of vitamin E
  • IBD and children
The New Eating Right for a Bad Gut offers a solid program for health that is uniquely focused on an area of major concern to a wide segment of the population.
