Feeling Crappy to Feeling Happy

Apr 22, 2014 by Janet Walker

Enjoyed the book, the humour and honesty. Whilst my partner is supportive, not knowing anyone else who has this illness can be isolating. I’ve been very lucky, whilst diagnosed in 2001 it has only been in the last year I have had a flare that I could not pull back, it lasted months and I ended up on steroids. Reading your book helped clarify for me that denial and stress are my biggest contributors to a flare. I have to listen to my body whether it’s telling me that a lifestyle is too much or a food does not agree with me. Thank you for sharing your story.

I loved your book, someone going thru the exact same thing I'm going through. I was also frustrated with doctors saying diet has nothing to do with it. I had this since 1999, I know it's a better way to control this without the meds. I know I must keep my gut Bacteria in check & also my inflammation down but reading all the other stories I'm doing better than most ppl on the meds. I've been on them myself and my flares & pains were longer & more painful when I was on them. I know since I been watching my diet I've had shorter flares & less pain. Your story shows there is hope, I'm going to keep going until the flares are non existence. Right now I'm eating clean, vsl3 ,vit d3, iron.


both books

Its good. Wish it was in hard back or a book period! It does help knowing you aren't alone with UC. I love the funny parts. I lol at a lot because I relate to so many things or issues that you would point out! As many UCers do. I also love the website . It is very helpful as well.... just wish I had a UCer close to me to talk to :((( Thanks for all you have done. People that don't have UC, have NO idea what we go through . Even though they suffer as well, cause we are limited to where we can go,do and eat. Anyway. Thank you for your support! Carry On Adam :)


Being part of an UC family

Mar 11, 2014 by Theo Terblanche

It was really great to read your book. Although I was already diagnosed in 2001, I never experienced the constant flare ups and crappy feeling as describe by you. In 2013 however I was hit with severe joint pain, especially lower back and then the road of medication to address this started. With this came the daily crappy feeling and its still the case today. I am blessed with a fantastic GI that is very helpful and listen to every complaint. I am not ready for the injections - the side effects of the medication is bad enough, but the ups and downs aren't contributing to daily lifestyle. I started the diet and with great support from my family I am positive to see the outcome. Thanks for being part of the UC family here in the southern tip of Africa. If you or any of the other UC family members have advise for the pain in the joints and lower back please let me know.

Awesome books!! I read them both in one day! I'm having trouble downloading them so I can print them off, but I LOVED them! Your humor and kindness is so refreshing. I often feel alone in this. I even have had some people (family members) suggest that I cause the flares myself - due to not knowing how to deal with stress. It's hard enough without being blamed. :(


Saved my grandson

Your books have saved my grandson. When he was told he had this UC he thought it was only him. After reading your story he looked at us and said. "I can do this if Adam can" then he started the diet because "Adam did" and he has been 3 weeks flare free and just started high school track. Your book is well written and allows others to see there is hope.
Your words and videos do help. So please keep it up

I enjoyed reading your book. I am glad you wrote this book using a good sense of humor which is hard to have when one is sick.Your book introduces UC patients with different options so they can make informed decisions. In Canada, it is very difficult to get a second opinion. One is lucky enough to find a GI (at least it was my experience)!! I believe you set an example for many people with UC to do our own research and be our own doctors.
I was very interested to know more about your diet. For example when you started to change your eating habit, what was the first thing you changed (I understand that everyone is different)? How did you know it is working and how long did it take? Your change was gradual or was radical.
Thank you for sharing your story and helping others with UC

Great book - I was diagnosed in July of 2013 and have been struggling like most. It's great to have such affirming information that you provide with a sense of humor that makes everything much lighter! I like your style of writing. Great information! THANK YOU for your books and your website!

This book was amazing to read, it really made you feel like you are not alone! So many things that happened to Adam had or were happening to me and it made me feel somewhat normal. Thank you so much for sharing your life and opening up to all of us!


Reading it as a care giver

Feb 16, 2014 by Margaret

I am the mum of a colitis sufferer. My son will hopefully be willing to read both books in the future... I have read them and think they are the most positive and helpful guides related to this illness. Other publications I find negative and hard to read with way too much medical jargon. I have suffered emotionally alongside of my son over the past 15 months and have been slowly guiding him towards a more healthy way of eating. Thank you for a great book.


The Turning Point

Feb 14, 2014 by Kristen Staples

I read the book cover to cover in two days. It was a turning point in my disease because as soon as I started eating SCD my UC disappeared! I can't believe my doctor, the highest rated guy at Mayo Clinic, told me that diet doesn't matter! My only constructive criticism is to have someone edit the book...there were a lot of typos. Thank you for sharing your story, it has changed my life!

I could not quit reading your story and finished your book in one day. It was such an incredible journey of personal em powerment. It has helped me to feel more in control of my own illness and I think it will change the direction of my future health decisions in a very positive way. It is so easy to be afraid of this illness and your book and experience helped me see that there is another way.

I give it a 5 because you even bothered to offer hope. None of my doctors have mentioned the diet. I am very frustrated by modern medicine. I appreciate that you are so positive. I've yet to try the diet but I plan to. As a side note, when I start exercising more I feel like I do become "unstable" And have always wondered if there was a connection. Also I sometimes take Benedryl to sleep and I feel like that also settles my insides.

With humor and grace, this book assures us with this diagnosis that there is life after UC. And any symptoms We have, Adam has had in triplicate. It offers a lesson in how to live well and how not to be defined by this diagnosis.


Colitis eBooks (both)

Jan 15, 2014 by Debbie

I loved your books. Thank you so much for being so open and honest about your condition! I know how hard that must have been. It is nice to know someone out there knows what I am going through. My family and friends sympathize with me, but they have no idea how I am feeling or what I go through. I felt like a freak for a very long time because I didn't know anyone else with my condition and then to be told by doctor after doctor that there is no cure and they were not too sure what to do next! I felt very alone for a lot of years. All of the oral medications have stopped working for me and so its back to the drawing board. Your cookbook and your diet are helping me to feel "normal" again. Whatever that is. Ha!! Again, THANK YOU for stepping up, writing your books, creating your website and for being so open and honest. You have no idea how much you have helped me and we have never even met!

Your books were a great help! I learned a lot, and related to a lot of symptoms. It's a good feeling knowing we are not alone with this condition. I was at a loss as to which way to turn. I have tried some of the recipes very good. Thanks to my husband for finding your books for me.

Great book, I can relate to Adams story. It was really interesting to read how bad things can get and also how good they can be too. I've started the diet, and already within 5 days there is a huge improvement in my symptoms and general well being. The food is very tasty and we are enjoying it. Thanks for sharing your story Adam and creating this community.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was easy to read and it had some funny parts in it that made you just chuckle because you could relate. However, it also had some other aspects in it that weren't so funny but you could relate to as well. It makes you feel better to know that you are not alone. The cookbook was really great as well, with some tasty recipes that the whole family loved. Thanks again for the e-mails. Sally

This book could not of come at a better time! I found great comfort in reading Adam's journey. There is a sense of true understanding in what it's like to really live with UC. The journey brings you through the seriousness and funny quirks of this disease and I very much appreciated it.

I have UC

Oct 29, 2013 by Elinor
Country & City: USA 

I bought your book a couple of weeks ago and love it. I also like getting the emails dealing with different aspects of UC, as it is interesting to hear how others deal with this lonely disease. Even though I have had UC for 35 years, I really haven't been able to speak with anyone who has UC except the few people I would meet getting Remacaide during a 3 hour infusion.
Thanks for the service you are doing for the UC community.


Starting to understand this shitty disease.

G'day mate, I have recently purchased your book "Feeling Crappy to Feeling Happy" and The cook book. I am about half way through the book and are enjoying reading about your life to hell and back over and over again. Not good buddy. I just enjoy the humour that is in the book. I now have a better understanding of UC. It has been very informative for my partner and myself. The last two days we have made the breakfast smoothie, bloody awesome tasting drink. We are yet to try the recipes in the cook book. Keep up the good work Adam.

Cheers from Down Under

Hi Adam. Thank you very much for sharing your personal journey with other people. This helped me a lot as I’m new diagnosed patient with Crohn’s disease looking for alternative ways of healing. Your book gave me a lot of encouragement and hope that I can beat this disease too.

Adam - I lot of information in both books, I have not read it all yet, but I will. I am still new to UC offically, great to hear someone else put things out there that ONLY a person with UC can relate to - Thanks for laughs as well, you got to keep a sense of humar in the battle against UC !!!


rough go with UC

Got the package, now we are starting the diet. My husband is the patient, and he has had a rough time with UC. Its been 5 years now since we started this journey. Your book has really been helpful, just reading your problems is a big eye-opener. So much we did not know, and now we have some hope. We did print both books, I think that will be a big help when we wonder what is for supper. He is a bread lover, and both of us were surprised that you do not eat bread, or sugar. A+ on the smoothie, and our first recipe for supper was very good, even without bread or potatoes! Thanks for the Cook Book 's easy reading and instructions. Bea
