The results of their “mama bear” instincts coming out are simply amazing and inspiring........"

I am incredibly excited and feel so honoured to have been asked to be a contributor to the newly published book, Trust Your Intuition 25 “Natural Medicine Confessions” from Influential Women Who Use Healing Remedies For Their Families, to be launched next week on Wednesday July 17, 2013.

My chapter describes our son's battle with Crohn's Disease and how the discovery of The Specific Carbohydrate Diet gave us the opportunity to "cure" him and hence avoid the medication which I feel may have destroyed him.
