I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2002 and spent 12 years struggling to come up with a solution to keep it at bay. Uta Birkmayer was recommended by a very good friend and cancer survivor after he attended a cooking demo Uta held for the Cancer Support Community. Having been hospitalized twice and prescribed many pharmaceutical options, I was very unhappy with the approach that â"diet has nothing to do with the disease". Until Uta, I had some pieces of the puzzle, but the way they fit together was elusive. Her practical approach made sense and integrated into my daily habits. The delicious foods are satisfying and healing - I have no desire for my former diet. Anyone with a condition that has not responded to conventional medicine (particularly autoimmune and psychological) MUST give Uta's nutritional methods a try. I am happy to say that after 5 months on the protocol my blood work shows half of the previous inflammation. I am able to work out and am gaining muscle mass and fitness that I haven't had in years. I am extremely pleased with the results! Thank you Uta!
