Book Review | Mannie’s Diet and Enzyme Formula

Title: Mannie’s Diet and Enzyme Formula

Author: Emanuel Barling, Jr., Esq. and Ashley F. Brooks, R.N.

My Review:

Do you know someone with arthritis, inflammation, gout, Crohn’s disease, IBD and IBS? I have a close family member that has Crohn’s disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome and this book was very helpful in learning about the importance of natural enzyme supplements and it also teaches the reader how to create an elimination style diet based on “testing and charting meals using the author’s suggestions.” My family member felt lost when it came to identifying food intolerances and toxic foods that further irritated her condition. Mannie’s Diet and Enzyme Formula provided practical and easy to follow suggestions such as switching to organic food sources and supplementing with natural enzymes.

The author is a cancer survivor who is fighting Crohn’s disease, gout and chronic arthritis. He is currently in remission and credits natural enzyme supplements and an organic diet with “saving his life.” Mr. Barling and Ms. Brooks state that their goal in writing this book is to “help change a person’s lifestyle to prevent illnesses and diseases caused by inflammation, allergy, intolerance or genetic predisposition.” Mannie’s Diet and Enzyme Formula is a treasure trove of information and cites over 1,500 sources to back it up.

I would recommend this book for anyone seeking to find solutions to potentially eliminate the devastating symptoms of these illnesses and diseases.
