Do you feel like your digestive symptoms hold you back from reaching your full potential?

I know I felt that way when I was really sick.

Whether I was in trouble with my boss because I was stuck in the bathroom with diarrhea AGAIN or watching my kids as they played outside while I was too weak and exhausted to join them, I knew… I was capable of so much more if I could just get well.

That’s how it was for my friend Amy, too. In fact, Amy and I have a LOT in common:

  • We both worked in the fast-paced world of engineering
  • We were both diagnosed with Celiac, after a lifetime of health problems
  • We both got WORSE following a conventional gluten-free diet

We have one other thing in common too… we both took control of our health and started healing.

I’ll let Amy explain how our Solving Leaky Gut program is helping her overcome the lifetime of symptoms that have been holding her back.

When I was diagnosed with Celiac disease, my doctor told me the gluten-free diet was the cure.

And that as long as I avoided gluten, I would be fine.

So, I followed the doctor’s orders…

But despite eating this way, I continued to get worse.

I was severely underweight due to malabsorption and chronic diarrhea. My body was breaking down with each passing month. And I wasn’t the Dad I wanted to be for my kids.

What I eventually realized was it takes a lot more than a gluten-free diet to heal from something like Celiac. I needed to heal my gut, not just avoid gluten…

Which is why I’ve made it my mission to get this message out there.

Now that you’ve heard it from me, let me introduce you to someone else who had a very similar experience (and who I am honored to have been able to support).

Ingrid stuck to a strict gluten-free diet for 6 years, yet her symptoms only increased. After 13 months on SCD (despite skepticism from her doctors), Ingrid is well again.

If you’re still struggling with symptoms after adhering to a gluten-free diet, I hope my story, Ingrid’s story, and all the other success stories we share can inspire you to take back control of your health.

Nina Arvin_SCD Success Story_ After Picture

How long did you struggle with your digestive pain? Did it feel like a black cloud was following you everywhere you went?

Because that’s how my life felt, as I struggled with Celiac disease. Honestly, battling this illness for the better part of a decade was mentally and physically draining. I made a lot of mistakes and sometimes didn’t know if I’d ever get better.

I got really good at doing one thing that really made a difference, though. Sure, all of the diet, supplements and lifestyle changes were absolutely vital to my recovery, but it was pain that got me through and out the other side. I got really good at using my pain to push me through all the tough times.

I’m so grateful now to be able to say that my gut is healed and more and more time has passed since I had agonizing diarrhea 10-15 times per day. But I’ve got to say, the memory of that pain is still right there. It keeps me focused on continuously taking care of my body, so I can be the best father, friend and health engineer I can be. And every once in a while we get an email, seemingly from out of nowhere, from someone who is totally on the same wavelength.

With that said, I’d like to introduce you to Nina, who fought her way through diagnoses of Ulcerative Colitis AND Celiac Disease.

Her story is filled with inspiration because she never gave up…

And now her life is completely different.

Read on to learn what it took for Nina to heal and feel better than she ever thought she could. [click to continue…]


Nicole M after pic (vibrant and healthy)

Back when I was sick and in pain, I searched Google for months hoping to read about someone just like me that was able to stop their autoimmune disease. Most nights, I found nothing and went to bed scared and afraid.

But once I found a few people that had success with SCD, I was inspired. I thought, “Maybe this could be the thing that changes my life...”

And it was…

But I wouldn’t have tried the diet without reading those 2 success stories…  

Which is why we’re committed to continuing to share as many of these stories as people are willing to write. You see, we get emails every day from people who are FINALLY starting to heal – FINALLY starting to stop their symptoms. But not everyone is willing to share it with the world just yet…

So, when we find someone who is, like Nicole, it means the world to me. Because I know there’s more people out there, sick and in pain like I was, just hoping to read a story like hers to FINALLY take action.

I’m honored to share another amazing success story – Resolve to Begin with you, in hopes that it inspires thousands of others to take action.

We share success stories for one very specific reason… and it’s probably not what you think.

In fact, we have an entire system inside our company to gather success stories and encourage our community to share their stories with others just like them.

It’s one of the most important things we do.

Not because it “toots our own horn.”

Or because we think it’ll get us traffic from Google.

It’s because if I didn’t read numerous online success stories back in 2008 I never would’ve tried the SCD Diet. I may not have healed my gut. I may not have ever started SCD Lifestyle with Steve.

Success stories were the spark that changed my life forever.

And we relentlessly share as many as we can in hopes that it does the same for thousands of other people going through the same struggle I did.

Without success stories, this would be just another blog. Instead, we have a thriving community of incredible people taking control of their health.

Today, I’m so happy to share Yael Hana’s story…


Because, if you’re reading this…

You’re Likely One or Two Tweaks Away from Feeling Better

Your body needs a custom diet or you won’t get better. End of story.

But don’t worry, it’s much simpler than it sounds. In fact, anyone can do it if they are willing to listen closely… [click to continue…]
