Reaching for Answers to Crohn's Disease

by Martha Kalichman, R.N.

Imagine a prescription for a devastating disease that is simple, relatively inexpensive, without side effects and effective long term.

Author Martha Kalichman did just that when faced with her fifteen year old daughter's diagnosis of Crohn's Disease. She called upon her knowledge as a registered nurse, her interest in medical research and her faith to find a better answer than those currently offered. In this reader-friendly narrative, Martha shares the journey her family traveled in search of better choices than the current harsh medications.

The result is an incredible discovery that is backed by medical research. Written in conjunction with a pediatric gastroenterologist, J. Rainer Poley, M.D., who completed his residency at the Mayo Clinic and now practices in North Carolina, this powerful little book contains Martha's story and guidelines for this "prescription." Medical references are provided for those interested in looking into the research themselves.

Reaching for Answers to Crohn's Disease will live as a trailblazer for improved health and quality of life for sufferers of this potentially debilitating disease.
