I bought this book for my daughter's boyfriend that was diagnosed with hemochromotosis quite a few years back. He along with my daughter are thrilled with the book (he's the cook). In the first part of the book there is a deep enough explanation of the disorder that is written in layman's terms.

When it first arrived, I flipped through and was quite surprised at how many recipes are in it and was amazed at how many recipes called for tea.

It seems to have opened up a new world for him. He eats well, sticks to the diet and has been exercising. The last time I saw him he looked like he was in tip-top shape. Of course he still goes for his blood-letting sessions, but he has also taken charge of his diet and overall health.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that has this disorder or has a loved one that does. Great gift item!

This cookbook is a great place to start if you want to understand iron absorption in your diet and gain a sense of contol over your iron intake. Like the old adage about teaching a man to fish, it provides real tools for those of us with HHC. The authors don't just present a buch of recipes. Instead they take the reader through a layman's overview of iron absorption and how it can be blocked. There is enough information in here that the experienced or adventurous cook can even extrapolate and create his/her own iron-blocking recipes (although there are enough recipes in the cookbook that there is no "need" for this). 3 members of my family have been diagnosed with HHC (including my mother), and my mother was cutting all kinds of things out of her diet (meat, certain vegetables, etc.) because they contained "too much" iron. I gave her The Hemochromatosis Cookbook for Christmas and she has called me numerous times to tell me how thrilled she is with the information and recipes, what she's making now, etc. The Hemochromatosis Cookbook showed her that she didn't have to give up any particular foods; she just has to combine her intake of iron rich foods with iron-blocking foods/nutrients. The Hemochromatosis Cookbook really gives one a sense of power over that rusty little element, providing multiple options for controlling and blocking dietary iron absorption.

A nurse told me about this cookbook and said she knows of one patient who uses it and has helped him keep his Hemochromatosis under control. I bought the book and have only read the information it the front of the book and this alone is worth it. I haven't tried the recipes yet, but intend to. I am trying to combine it with Atkins Diet as they are very similar, except Atkins doesn't have any sugar.
I think this is a good book for anyone with Hemochomatosis. It's very informative and is also recommended by The Iron Disorders Institute.

I would have liked to see the tuna salad recipe on page 109. Page 109 has a duplicate of the potato salad recipe on page 108. I wrote the publisher and got another copy of potato salad.

Overall, the information is helpful and the recipes a good mixture of easy and more complicated. The nutrition breakdown for each one is very useful.

This cookbook was very helpful with all the recipes for keeping my husbands hemochromatosis under control. He took this to the cancer center where he is being treated for this rare disease and the nurses kept it to copy recipes and let other patients being treated for Hemochromatosis know this book is available. The tea really surprised me how it is added to most of the recipes...very good investment!

I liked this book and keep it handy for meal planning and checking out iron content in foods. The recipes are good and easy to make. I didn't learn anything new reading through this cookbook. The recipes and planning are really no different than can be found in approaches to low fat/ low cholesterol diets. I think this book is very helpful and an important tool for those newly diagnosed with hemochromatosis. I gave it a 3 star rating simply because I thought the recipes and info was fairly standard. In most other respects it is a 5 star product.
