I couldn’t stop reading Adam’s book! Having never heard of ulcerative colitis until I was diagnosed a few months ago, I was desperate for more information. I was so pleased to have found Adam’s website and books! It’s been a valuable resource in so many ways. I haven’t actually met any other individual with UC so felt very overwhelmed and isolated, reading this book brought me comfort. Thanks again Adam for all that you do for the UC community.

Feeling Crappy to Happy

I am a Mom of a teeneager diagnosed wit UC and when I was searching for common ground,comfort and the real story this was it! I haven't finished the book but I have already taken away suggestions for my son's care and utilized them. So that was worth already the cost of the book and recipes. Thank you Adam and I will review again, I am sure positive, when I have time to finish reading and applying!

Very informative

I found Adam’s book to be very information on about having UC. I am a mom of a UCer but I also have digestive issues. It can be overwhelming at times and Adams book brought me hope. I highly recommend it as a book to help you find your way through it.

Sharing is Caring

Thank you for sharing your story and journey to remission Adam. I am integrating some of your ideas and asking more questions of my health care practitioners to get on my own path to remission faster. Also, the immediate changes I made in my diet has been encouraging to alleviate some symptoms.

Thank you again. I look forward to the next iteration of your cook book.

Must read

What an amazing resource. It definitely opened my eyes to the world of UC. I love how realistic Adam was about all the different treatments, and the details of the struggles to get to remission. While it definitely wasn’t what I wanted to hear (I think we can all agree it would be nice if we could just wake up and feel better), it was definitely comforting to know I’m not the only one struggling hardcore to get to remission so that I can hopefully control my pancolitis with lifestyle and not medications eventually. The book had me laughing at times and in tears from being able to relate to the struggles. Thank you so much for writing this book. It’s been such a valuable resource in so many ways, including helping me learn ways to share information so my family and friends can have a better understanding of what it’s like. So again, thank you for this Adam. It is a must read for anyone struggling to gather as much information as possible.

  1. Has anyone tried “Listen to your Gut” by Jini Patel Thompson? Any comments/experience to share from following that route of healing vs. SCD?


  2. I’m reading Listen to Your Gut now. It’s complimentary to SCD, not instead of. Or are you thinking of Jini’s IBD Remission Diet? I think that can also be used along with SCD. I haven’t tried Jini’s IBD Remission Diet, but one can do that, achieve remission and then go on the SCD.

    As for Listen to Your Gut, I use it as a reference for supplements and treating various symptoms. It’s packed with useful info and how to guide for specific healing protocols. I understand my disease a lot more after reading it and have a chest full of tools to heal myself in the short and long term.

  3. When considering books you, can go to and find them new or used and very affordable. I just purchased Breaking the Vicious Cycle: Intestinal Health Through Diet for under 18 bucks including shipping. I hope this is an answer to my UC. At almost 42 yrs of age I’ve had UC for 1 1/2 years taking Mesalamine and Casana. My Doc is uneducated in diet or alternative options other than the typical pharma or surgery and said that diet is not the cause or the solution. He had no recommendations, yet I find that the World Wide Web has a whole community of people with varying testimonials and recommendations. That is what I am counting on and I will shout it from the mountaintops when I get better.

    So glad your out there!


    1. CONGRATS JOEL for looking outside the box, or “the doctor’s office” I guess. I think you and I are in the exact same boat/book. Good luck to you. Please keep us posted on how things turn out for you, all the best! -Adam

  4. Just wanted to let everyone know that I just published a new book about my experience with ulcerative colitis and the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). The book is called Two Steps Forward, One Step Back. A journey Through life, ulcerative colitis, and the specific carbohydrate diet. Available at

    Best of health to you all!
