Why 30 Days on the SCD Diet Will Give You Control of Your IBS

by Steven Wright

If you’re suffering from digestive problems labeled as IBS like I was, I’m sure you are actively researching ways to help your symptoms. I used to scan the web daily for the latest and greatest research on supplements, drugs and special medical procedures. But what I never paid attention to was diet research and how that could help me. I never even considered that diet may be the biggest single factor in how I feel on a daily basis. I learned that the Specific Carbohydrate Diet was the answer I was looking for, though.

It only took me a couple weeks on the SCD Diet to finally gain control of my IBS and finally be able to make my own decisions in life, instead of my stomach pain or diarrhea making them for me.

But There Is More to the Story…

IBS is driven by some back seat drivers working in the background to make life miserable. It is primarily driven by bacterial overgrowth and inflammation. An inflamed gut with an overgrowth of the bad guys is a recipe for disaster and leads to the symptoms labeled irritable bowel syndrome.

You have to attack this thing two-fold:

  1. First, by killing off the bacteria (ideally through starving them to death)
  2. And then cooling the inflammation down.

What’s the best way to accomplish both of those tasks… the magic pill to take control of IBS?

You guessed it, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

The SCD Diet works to stop feeding the bad bacteria the crucial carbs, sugars, and starches that it needs to proliferate and it also cools down the inflammation in the gut by dramatically lowering the intake of Omega 6 fatty acids and complex carbohydrates that irritate the lining of the gut. So, what is the key step to make all this work harmoniously together to start making you feel better? The key step is properly executing the SCD intro diet. Without it, you may not ever get control of the bad bugs and be able to break that evil cycle.

The intro diet is so important, because it reboots the gut flora and starves out the bacteria in one swift motion to make sure that the foundation of foods that the SCD Diet builds from that point forward is made on a solid footing. If you complete the intro diet properly, you can be confident that you can get a handle on the symptoms of your IBS, one day at a time.

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet is Rather Simple if You Boil it Down…

Basically, you just say NO to some types of food and YES more often to others. It is really that simple.

Sure, there is a learning curve. But just because it’s different than trying to understand drug interactions doesn’t mean it is harder. Instead, it should be exciting. You can finally go explore the outer aisles of the supermarkets, and in the process dust off those unused pots and pans.

That is really all the Specific Carbohydrate Diet is: learning a new way to shop, cook and when to say No to certain foods.

There are no horrible side effects and no cancer, but your food bill might go up temporarily. The same thing would happen if you tried a new supplement or drug.

What if in 30 days you could naturally get more energy, balance your weight, stabilize your blood sugar, end your digestion troubles and all you had to do was eat differently?

Now, what if I told you all you needed to focus on was doing the right things on the diet and that there was a guide that would show exactly how to get started to make sure you get all the benefits you can from the SCD diet?

Well, if you’re interested, I created a free guide that will walk you through, step-by–step, how to start the SCD Intro diet properly… just go here to get your free copy: http://www.scdlifestylebook.com/free.php

Remember, it all starts with a quick 30-day trail that you can start today if you want. Worst case, you suffer the same symptoms you have now. Best case, you stop having diarrhea and constipation… the gas stops all together, and you take control of your health.
