Why aren’t there more studies on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet?
That question used to drive me nuts when I was thinking about starting SCD.
Until I finally found one… one that seemed very convincing.
And it played a big role in thinking the SCD Diet might work for me…
One 20-Patient Crohn’s Study Proved SCD Can Work…
Dr. Leo Galland’s Crohn’s Disease study found that:
“All 20 patients demonstrated a decrease in symptoms and reduction in medication use. Six patients have entered complete clinical remission, discontinued all medication, and maintained remission for five to 80 months.”
So, when I read the hard evidence in the study, I was convinced that SCD does work… and gave me confidence that diet modification was the right treatment option for me.
And Dr. Galland’s work will continue to support SCD for years to come.
In today’s podcast, we had the honor of interviewing Dr. Galland all about his experience treating patients with IBD… and where The Specific Carbohydrate Diet fits in.
I really think you’ll enjoy it 🙂
