SCD Diet News


We hope by now you’ve watched the groundbreaking new film, Origins, featuring 24 of the brightest minds in human and environmental health who revealed the real reason we’re struggling with chronic illness – and how we can reclaim the health and vitality that once came to us naturally.

(HINT: gut health is FINALLY featured as the critical step.)

If you missed it, you have until Saturday, November 22nd to watch it for free.

Access the Full-Length Origins Film at Absolutely No Charge Here.

If you’re anything like me…

Hopefully you’ve been sending this to your family and friends. I’m so grateful that gut health is finally making it into the mainstream, so now I can send the people I care about to something like this instead of talking till I’m blue in the face at holiday parties :)

My friend, Pedram Shojai, OMD, is the guy who made this movie and convened these world-class experts after he ran a large medical practice where he treated the same lifestyle-induced ailments again and again.

Big news! A new full-length feature film is talking about gut health in a way I’ve never seen before. I was lucky enough to watch an early screening a few weeks ago and it totally blew me away!

And now, you can watch a free screening for the next 10 days. Click here to check it out.

Think about you and the five people you care about most…

What scares me the most about this planet right now is how many human beings are sick.

And there’s a good chance most of them are struggling with more than 1 serious health issue.

And if you’re reading this right now, it’s likely that you’re a part of our community because of a gut health issue in your own life.

If you’re dealing with chronic illness like Steve and I did, you’ve got to hear the simplest and most profound explanation, offered by some of the brightest minds in human and environmental health, for why our guts are completely destroyed – and how we can reclaim the health and vitality that once came to us naturally.

It’s going to be revealed in the global premiere of the brand new, groundbreaking movie Origins.

When I watched it I was blown away . . . and now you can watch it too. Get immediate access here at no charge.

The first time I fired my Doctor, it felt so weird.  I trusted them with my health completely…

After all they work FOR us. So why did it feel so wrong?

In everything but my health, if someone doesn’t do a good job, I have no problem firing them…

Like if I hired someone to mow the lawn and they killed my grass… FIRED.

Or if I hired someone to change my oil and the engine blew up… FIRED.

Or if I hired someone to do my taxes and I ended up in trouble with the IRS… FIRED.

But firing a Doctor is something I never thought I had to do, until they just shrugged their shoulders and wrote another prescription that didn’t work.

The 2nd and 3rd time I fired a Doctor, things went a little easier, but it sure was depressing. I honestly didn’t think there was anyone out there who could figure out what was wrong with me.

Finding a skilled Functional Medicine practitioner was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life… EVER.

Not only was I sick, but working with terrible practitioners literally stole every ounce of my hope.

After years of this, I FINALLY found a truly Skilled Functional Practitioner that put a lot of the pieces together for me and did some amazing work on my body. For the first time, I had hope I could get healthy…

When you’re trying to recover your health, there’s a lot going on inside your body…

How do you find someone who can help?

What questions should you ask?

Are there things you should be looking for in a good practitioner?

Thank you so much to the 2,988 people who recently helped us name our baby… the new gut project we’ve got in the works! We sent out FREE supplements and tests to random participants and those who suggested our new website name…

Because this is something that’s very important to us.

See, the name of a website matters… and at the same time it doesn’t.

Look at SCD Lifestyle. It took us over 6 weeks to figure it out back in 2009. And now many participants of our community aren’t even doing the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

What matters, I believe, is the message… the quality and the results that a website delivers. And if the name of that website is not built on those factors, it can be overcome.

The Doctor looks up from the clipboard and says, “The test results show you have Rheumatoid Arthritis…”

For some, finding out they have Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a relief, finally an answer for the crippling pain.

For others, it’s a diagnosis without much hope.

RA affects roughly 1.5 million people in the United States. [1]

The disease is three times more prevalent in women than men.

For those of you who are living with RA or have a close friend or loved one affected by it you know how crippling it can be. RA, unlike osteoarthritis, is not caused by wear and tear – it’s actually a little more tricky, it’s an autoimmune disorder. Your body actually begins to attack your joints.

Normally, the immune system that’s supposed to protect you from foreign invaders, turns inward and attacks your own tissues and becomes an autoimmune issue…

My Immune System Attacks My Joints?

Yes, your immune system is waging war on your joints. But it’s a bit more complicated than that.

Joints are where two or more bones come together. There are several different types of joints but the ones affected by RA, the ones we will be talking about here, are Synovial Joints.
