SCD Diet Success Stories

Anna's Gut Healing Success

If getting healthy were easy and straightforward, everyone would do it with ease.

But the truth is, it’s rarely as black and white as we’d like it to be and there are more pieces involved than diet change alone.

There was a point in my healing journey when I realized this exact concept – changing my diet just simply wasn’t going to be enough to get me to where I wanted to be.

Don’t get me wrong, it helped a ton!

But something was missing.

With the help of trusted stool tests, I found out that a gut infections were one of the reasons I was still sick. And it wasn’t until I addressed them that my health began to turn the corner.

As it turns out, many people on this journey will need to do more than simply change their diet, and this was certainly the case for our friend Anna.

Read on, as Anna takes us through the ups and downs of her journey and graciously shares with us the tools and tips she used to overcome several challenges (including parasites, Candida, and H. pylori). [click to continue…]

Gut Healing Success: Kyle's Story

The amazing thing about SCD is that it seems to work for just about everyone.

But not because it’s the magical holy grail of diets (though that would be cool!)

It’s because SCD takes people back to basics so that they can build a customized diet that works for them.

(In fact, we’ve taken customizing the diet one step further than even SCD with our Solving Leaky Gut program.)

See, success on SCD isn’t just about what you do or don’t eat – it’s also about:

  • learning to listen to your body
  • trusting your own wisdom
  • and learning how to manage stress so that you can master the mental side of healing too

That’s why I’m sharing Kyle’s story with you today – Kyle is an absolute warrior who overcame a lifelong battle with constipation and a severe case of SIBO using SCD.

But beyond following the diet, Kyle learned that to really heal she would have to take a leap of faith, get back in touch with her body, and recognize some hard truths about stressors in her life.

I’m honored Kyle was willing to share her story – I know this will resonate with you as deeply as it did with me.

Here is her story in her own words… [click to continue…]

Marta SCD Success Story

“It’s all about the journey, not the destination.”

That’s something we’ve all probably heard at least once (and perhaps may be sick of hearing), but it couldn’t be more true when it comes to the journey of health.

Two steps forward, one step back, and perhaps a few steps to the side.

For me, that’s exactly how my journey went – tweak, test, wait, lose hope, gain hope, etc.

But, with a great amount of perseverance and determination, I eventually got it right.

I ended up at the destination I so desperately wanted (good health) and so did our Friend, Marta. [click to continue…]

Jennifer's Daughter

I’ll be the first to admit it isn’t particularly FUN to eliminate foods you once loved….

But when you see the impact it has on your health (like I did) you’ll be more than happy to stick to any dietary change.

Our friend Jennifer knows this all too well.

She helped her 8-year-old daughter overcome neurological issues, digestive complaints, chronic fatigue and headaches with the SCD diet.

And while the diet wasn’t always easy and her daughter struggled to give up certain foods, she could see the impact it had (and still has) on her daughter’s life.

Brittany SCD Success

When you’re sick, all you want is to heal – fast.

You want to wake up tomorrow feeling better. You want to be off the toilet and out in the world.

And this feeling of urgency around healing can hold people back from starting the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

SCD works, people think, but it takes months and months.

That’s why I’m really excited to share an email we received from our community member Brittany with you.

Brittany has had UC for 9 years. But after just 2 weeks on SCD, all her IBD symptoms were gone.

Of course, not everyone has symptom relief as quickly as Brittany did – but if you’re scared to start SCD because of how long healing may take, let this story be an inspiration to you. [click to continue…]
