Brasco and Rubin recommend. I take only one supplement now (after learning about it in this book), and it's not a brand they listed. They offer alternatives for people who have difficulty finding things and for the "Budgetarily Challenged". Their suggestions helped me tailor a plan that works for me. Their explanations of diseases, and conventional and alternative treatments enabled me to make better choices, ask my doctors for the right tests, and be an active partner in my treatment. I had followed the advice of some other authors-and I got worse. In this book Dr. Rubin shares how he triumphed over his own digestive disease, and Dr. Brasco shares his clinical successes with his patients. They know what they're talking about. There's a wealth of valuable information in the resources and books they recommend. This book is helping me regain my health and I feel very fortunate to have found it. 70 of 71 people found the following review helpful. Besides any Commercial issues, these recomendations work!! By Ricardo Chavarria A little background first I have Post Infectious IBS for 2 years now. It started after taking large amounts of antibiotics to heal from pneumonia. Feeling very bad as most IBS sufferers, I tried several diets, went to a lot of GI doctors and even tried acupuncture, reflexology, ... you name it. I took antidepressants for a while to help me with my mood since I felt so bad in times that I didn't even want to work or even get out of home. I lost 40 pounds so far. Since January 2005, I read these books (I put a personal rating to each one, related to how much it helped me with my IBS, in parenthesis from 1 to 5, being 5 the best score): Breaking the Vicious Cycle - Elaine Gotschall (3) Eating Right for a bad Gut - James Scala (2) Total health Program - Joseph Mercola (3) Metabolic Type Dieting - William Linz Wolcott, Trish Fahey (1) I recently read "Restoring Your Digestive Health" (5) To the point: Besides the fact that many, if not everyone, of the people who write this kind of books look for some sort of monetary earnings (and many do that just for the money), there always stays the fact about whether the material presented has a real value or not. In other words, do the programs and recommendations in this book really work? For me they did. In fact it is my personal opinion that this book encloses many of the concepts that I've been studying for the past year. It gives you a brief explanation about many of them. In that respect at least, I wished I had bought this book before the other ones, since in the end it is like a little reference of them. Bad luck. Of course I don't agree with many things, for instance the "structured water" suplement, since based on other sources I read, it is very controversial an in many aspects without scientific background, although the authors may recommend it based on their clinical experience rather than anything else. More probably I think, they are trying to encourage people to buy their supplements (who can blame them). So back to the main point here, maybe the authors are willing that the readers go out and buy some of their supplements, but the issue here is whether the Guts and Glory program works. It will be fair to mention that the authors never tell you not to have any conventional drugs nor they force you to have any supplements. They even give you a "Low Budget" alternative where you'll never even buy a supplement, although they argue it will take you longer to heal. I think the authors are more objective than the more radical approaches of the other books I read. And of course, MOST importantly, I've been in the Guts and Glory program for 4 weeks and I feel BETTER than years!!!!. I know it's only my word, but I'm being honest here. I'm talking the Brasco Broth everyday, and I'm not
