Specific Carbohydrate Diet

Recommended Posts

I am about to start the SCD diet because there are raving reviews (~270) on Amazon about how it gets rid of all the symptoms of Celiac.

I was wondering if anyone here has tried it? I'm very excited.

I did it faithfully for about 11 months and then started adding regular foods back into my diet. It was the best thing I ever did, but it was also very challenging. I feel better than I have in 10 years! Good luck. Check my profile for some resources.

The book in question is Breaking the Vicious Cycle: Intestinal Health Through Diet by Elaine Gottshall.

There is a lengthy discussion of the SCD on this board here.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!

I didn't do SCD but did go grain free with great results. There were too many things I wasn't tolerant of in the SCD so I guess I modified it somewhat. For me going grain free has been enough. But there are people here who had great success on the diet.

Thanks! I am having great success so far with it... it makes perfect sense to me. About 3 days ago I was still feeling scratching and pain in my abdomen but now I am without pain! Still bloated, but I hope healing.

Here is an relevant, fascinating article: http://www.scdiet.org/7archives/scdceli1.html "Whatever happened to the

cure for coeliac disease?"
