Hello out there...
Wouldn't it be nice to know how it's really going for people who are on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet? Many people have found sites like NoMoreCrohns, learned all about it, gone on the SCD and moved on with their lives and we don't know who they are or how they're doing! Are you one of these people?
It would be so great if we could collect YOUR story, for the record, so that people will have a reference point, a place to look for encouragement and information as they begin their SCD journey. Hundreds of new people are visiting our site every day, so we know there is a great interest in learning about the Diet.
As more and more doctors learn about the benefits of the SCD from their patients and their own research, we feel it would be valuable to collect a body of individual stories from people like you. While there are still no completed scientific double blind studies proving that the SCD works, personal experiences recorded here will be very helpful to doctors and their patients as they consider recommending and / or following the diet.
You can be part of something bigger... you can help spread the word so that more people will be ble to have the option of following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet rather than going down the medical road of strong drugs with adverse effects, surgeries, sickness and discouragement. You can make a difference.
Thank you for adding your story to the Comments below

The Comments section is a place where you can tell others your SCD story. No one really knows how many people are following the SCD and having positive results, so this can be a place where we collect stories of real people like yourself who are following the SCD.
Who told you about the SCD? How long have you been on it? What results have you seen? What's the hardest part? How have you explained the diet to your family and friends? Have you shared your experience with your doctor? What was your doctor's response? Can you see yourself following the SCD for a long time, if it improves your life without meds? Please share...
It's our desire to make the Specific Carbohydrate Diet a mainstream option automatically offered to patients with Crohn's, IBS, Celiac and other Irritable Bowel Diseases. When you add your story to the Comments section of this space you are helping to increase the body of knowledge that will inform and inspire others.
Please don't use this space to ask questions... while comments will be monitored for appropriateness, this is really just a place to tell your story to the world.
To find still more SCD stories, go to the Amazon page where "Breaking the Vicious Cycle" is sold (below) and read people's comments about the book.
