Gut Reaction is an entertaining as well as informative true story about the author's battle to save her son's life - or at least his large intestine - from a very severe case of Crohn's disease. With persistence, humour, much searching of the Internet and the help of two unusual doctors, one in Canada and the other in Australia, she and her son, who was in his early twenties, finally find a regime of fecal infusions that replaces the bacteria that had ulcerated his gut with a healthy flora donated by his mother. The manuscript details their adventures and then concludes with a helpful summary of how they did it. It includes a foreword by Dr. Thomas Borody, the Director of the Centre for Digestive Diseases in Australia, whose emails and phone conversations helped the author understand what, how, and why to do what was necessary. Sky Curtis's sometimes desperate, often hilarious, and always determined international quest for a treatment for her son's life-threatening Crohn's disease resulted in a new protocol for the treatment of this disease.

Sky Curtis is a former magazine writer, educational software designer, editor, playwright, columnist and children's writer. She now writes fiction and non-fiction books for adults. Her most recent book, Doctored, was published by Inanna Publications in 2010. Sky lives in Toronto with her family.

"Throughout this difficult and challenging time when Sky was desperate to find a cure for her son, she was somehow able to maintain her wonderful sense of humour. This much-needed account of an increasingly common medical problem is thorough and clear while at the same time injected with a positive attitude and a gentle wit." --Pamela H. Tate, Craniol Sacral Therapist
