Liz regained her health by customizing the SCD diet and changing her lifestyle.
In this podcast, Angela tells us how she used diet to overcome 6 years of IBS, fatigue, and lyme disease.
John used SCD and stress reduction to get control of his Crohn’s and lost 35lbs over about 6 months. I have a profound respect for those willing to step up and share their health stories publicly. And even more so those who brave the world sharing photos like John’s above.
Meet Mitch, he's a bodybuilder early 30's and describes himself as pretty normal. He's been battling Ulcerative Colitis for a few years and in the past drugs like prednisone had really helped. But then when he needed them most they didn't. And he had to take matters into his own hands.
In the middle of a nasty drug resistant flare he turned to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. In under 14 days he had already noticed major changes.
Have you ever wanted to get all up in the face of an author? Try and figure out what their motivation was behind their work? I have - so I know some of you must wonder about us...Well our friend Matt actually requested it, so we felt obliged to comply. In fact the interview ended up being a ton of fun mostly because we talked about our favorite topics: food, poop and our stories. :)
Our Specific Carbohydrate Diet friend of the week is Cheryl Cravino who has beat up her Crohn's and is now medication and symptom free. Her story is one that I can relate to and I think others as well. Not receiving the care we need from traditional medicine a chance meeting offers an alternative that almost everyone refuses to accept. Diet matters. Now Cheryl is returning the favor by telling her story.
We are pleased to have Danielle from Againstallgrain is in our spotlight this week! Danielle's story is remarkable, suffering from Ulcerative Colitis and not getting any help from her doctors, she took her health into her own hands. Only 2 months into SCD she was not only symptom free but also Pregnant! This is really cool as the web is filled with stories of mom's who through diet tweaks were able to crush conception problems (Hint: get rid of grains).
Nancy Bradshaw actually got a hold of us because her story is so powerful that she wanted to share it. She is an inspiration and also a great example of someone who thought that the SCD Diet didn’t work. We always talk about how it works for most people as long as you sort tweak it to fit your body and your healing journey…
Carol Frilegh, an SCD veteran, had the honor of becoming friends with Elaine. She's a featured writer on Celiac.com spreading the word about SCD.
