After much research and personal experience I have come to the conclusion that this book by Jini Patel Thompson is probably the very best place to get ALL your relevant information to heal all gut issues from Crohns to Colitis and IBS.
I cannot begin to impress on you how important this book could be to you (or someone you know). I absolutely believe that gut issues, whatever they are, can be healed and we do not need to descend into a life of constant medication and suppression of symptoms.

The Ultimate guide to detoxification. Another Bible. Robert Morse is a hero in the detoxification circles and has a thriving and inspired YouTube site.
His herbs are amazing and powerful, his approach unique and he gets results, particularly for people who are seriously ill. Iris reading a speciality.
The Transformational Power of Fasting by Stephen Buhner
This book is a must. Fasting is known to really help and even totally heal chronic conditions like Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Simply by stopping eating for an extended period of time, 21 days, or sometimes much longer, allows the whole body to turn its attention to healing without distraction.
Personally I believe if the body is up to it and strong enough, this may be the optimal and speediest route to take.
SPECIAL MENTION – BARABARA WREN, MODERN DAY GENIUS OF THE CELL.
This woman deserves her own category. Although it might not appear that this is about colitis or immune disorders, she cuts straight to the heart of the matter. Cellular dysfunction is the root of the problem, and she explains why. She has written two books and I absolutely recommend them both.
It will tell you things about your cellular function, about how the cell works and why its so important to pay attention. Knowing this wisdom will seriously help you on your path to vibrantly healing and wellness.
Excellent insight and information from Dr John Douillard.
It makes perfect sense to follow the seasons and allow ourselves to be guided by nature. You will need to be able to source your food fresh and organic, but then you should be doing that anyway, where possible.
This book is our current bible.
