This week on the show we were pleased to be joined by our friend Tiffany Reilly. She had lifelong GI problems (they told her it was
IBS) until a hospital stay in which she learned it was actually Crohn’s disease. After trying many combinations of conventional drugs she found the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and decided to give it a shot.
She had to overcome several large obstacles along the way. For instance she couldn’t even go shopping to get the food to start the diet she was so sick! After that she had to learn to cook from scratch and then she made a brave decision against her doctors wishes to stop taking Pentasa.
Now just over 6 months since she started, she’s converted her entire family over, including her young son. Not only that but she is the owner of the SCD Support Group on Facebook and also moderates on other Crohn’s and Colitis discussion boards. I think you are going to find her story inspiring and her unique experience helping others on a daily basis very value added.
