Beat Crohn's! Getting to Remission with Enteral Nutrition describes a strikingly effective dietary treatment for Crohn's disease that has been nearly forgotten in the US. The treatment involves using special liquid formulas (referred to as "enteral nutrition") instead of, or in addition to, regular food and beverages in order to induce and maintain remission.
Enteral nutrition has been used by people with Crohn's since 1969 and has been tested in numerous clinical studies. Beat Crohn's describes who can benefit from enteral nutrition, why patients might want to use it, what symptoms respond best, and how it compares with medications. Readers will also find practical tips on using enteral nutrition and stories of kids and adults who have tried it.
Special features include a chapter on enteral nutrition in children, and another for people with ulcerative colitis, indeterminate colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome who have questions about enteral nutrition. In the last chapter, the author explores the latest research on supplements and special diets for people with Crohn's (fish oil, probiotics, and more!).

Margaret A. Oppenheimer has over 10 years' experience as a medical writer. She has personal experience with enteral nutrition.Review:
Crohn's disease can cause pain and major changes in lifestyle and sometimes leads to the surgical removal of large sections of bowel. Traditional therapies in the United States include drugs, nutritional supplements, and surgery, all of which can have major adverse effects. Medical writer Oppenheimer explains how enteral nutrition, a method of receiving one's daily nutritional requirements through a liquid diet, may be a safe alternative with outcomes that can be just as good as other therapies. She explains what enteral nutrition is, provides information on more traditional treatments for Crohn's, and uses research to show how enteral nutrition compares with those treatments. Types of formulas and methods of administration are discussed, along with benefits and drawbacks. Oppenheimer examines the special needs of children with Crohn's as well as other types of diets, such as low-carb, food-exclusion, and lactose-free approaches. The appendixes include a glossary, children's growth charts, and sources of enteral nutrition formulas, as well as an extensive bibliography. While providing no medical credentials, Oppenheimer offers a readable, well-documented book that will be of value in consumer-health collections. Janet M. Schneider, James A.
