SCD Diet Success Stories

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…]

Caleb SCD Success Story Image

I’m a parent and to put it lightly, it’s hard to see your child suffer and feel like there’s nothing you can do to help.

When Cindy’s son Caleb was diagnosed with Crohn’s, she felt that same helpless feeling.

Despite great physical success on the SCD diet, she could see her son was struggling socially.

Cindy found a way to turn despair into hope and I’m excited to share with you what tools she used to overcome the challenges they faced on the SCD diet and ultimately give Caleb his life back. [click to continue…]

Josh S SCD Success Story

There’s nothing quite like reading a success story and thinking “That sounds just like me!”

When Jordan and I first got sick with digestive problems, there weren’t any stories like ours out there – we were lucky we found each other.

So when we launched SCD Lifestyle, that was a big part of our mission – to connect with and inspire people like us to take their health back.

Josh is one of those people – he started SCD after connecting with my story on the blog.

Today, I’m really excited to be able to share his story – and hopefully keep the inspiration going. [click to continue…]
