Mimi Emmanuelabout this book: Mimi's story will appeal to anyone who likes an inspiring read. The author overcame seemingly insurmountable medical problems and survived for 5 years on a diet of 10 ingredients only!
The book took around two years to write and was done for the sole purpose of helping others who suffer from gut problems and haven't found any answers as yet.
The title was given to me by my kind health practitioner who wrote the foreword and in the foreword he said that he witnessed a true story of survival. Hence the title.
I like red and yellow and some people say that this is outdated for covers but I quite like the effect and my 84-year-old friend who just received a copy of the book said that she found the cover 'compelling,' and she could not wait to open the book.
The hardest part of writing the book was that I didn't actually wanted to write it. I want to write about health and wellbeing and not the troubles I experienced. But at some stage I realised that people could be helped from reading my story and that made it worthwhile.
It took between 2 and 3 years of research and trial and error, to come up with the diet of ten ingredients as described in the book.
This book is an excellent read for anyone who cannot tolerate gluten, eggs, sugar, fructose, grains, flours, nuts, seeds, meat, beans, soy, and no legumes. Initially, my diet contained no dairy either.
My diet may benefit anyone who suffers from gut problems, allergies, food intolerances, sensitive gut or chemical sensitivities. This includes people who have been diagnosed with autoimmune conditions, Lyme, Lupus, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel and fibromyalgia.
I reckon that the oodles of faith in the diet worked miracles!
