Raman Prasad's book
Colitis and Me
Foreword by Elaine Gottschall B.A. M.Sc.

Raman Prasad's odyssey through the perils of ulcerative colitis is no less heroic than those of the original hero of the epic poem. His return to health, although not a product of modern medicine, is a product of good science.

Suffering with an illness such as ulcerative colitis has a few distinct and humiliating aspects. One is that because it happens below the belt the disease reduces one's dignity because the patient is constantly in fear. The patient with ulcerative colitis is secretive and suffers in silence, unlike the patient with a triple bypass who talks about his successes at gatherings, even to baring his chest to show his incision. Add to that, the hopelessness of being told his/her disease is incurable and the helplessness of being told he/she can do nothing about changing his/her diet to effect a cure.

But Raman and hundreds of others have found that what they are told is without foundation. The Specific Carbohydrate diet™ has brought many back to health because the doctor who developed the diet, Dr. Sidney Valentine Haas, was a scientist in the true word. He understood the world of intestinal bacteria and the effect of the modern diet on this world of microorganisms and, subsequently, the immune system.

When Dr. Sidney Valentine Haas cured my child in the 1970's of ulcerative colitis, after three years of a perilous and painful experience such as Raman's, I knew I had found a workable solution. One cannot be quiet about such a miracle and, after years of academic study, years of watching the diet works its magic on hundreds, I wrote Breaking the Vicious Cycle.

We have a saying among us Specific Carbohydrate Dieters which reads, “we will reach one person at a time and will keep planting seeds.” Raman's personal journey through ulcerative colitis recorded in this memoir Colitis & Me: A Story of Recovery is doing just that.
