SCD Diet Success Stories

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 SIBO Survivor

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…]

Charlie Shannon Success Story

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to be told I can’t do something or that certain things just aren’t possible.

I had heard this several times from various people on my healing journey and it actually motivated me even more to accomplish the things I wanted to (like overcome Celiac disease symptoms using diet and supplements).

Just like I was able to prove those doubters wrong and achieve vibrant health, so was our friend Shannon and courageous son, Charlie.

I’m humbled and grateful to share with you how Charlie and his mom used the SCD diet to put Crohn’s disease into remission – even after the doctor told him and his mother it would simply be too hard.

If you’ve found yourself in a place where you’re scared to make a change because someone told you it wouldn’t work out, this inspiring story is for you. [click to continue…]

Back when I was in the throes of Celiac disease – when I would be up all night with horrible diarrhea and cramping – I used to wish I could just “go back”…

Back to before I was sick…

Back before I was worried I would die before I got to see my kids grow up…

Back to the carefree days in high school when I felt like I was invincible…

Back before IBD.

Guess what though?

Right now, my health is way better than it was before I was ever sick…

Now you couldn’t pay me to go back to before I was sick!

And it’s not just that I feel better (or look better, because there is that too) – it’s that being sick and overcoming it has given me a whole new perspective and appreciation for life.

If I hadn’t gotten sick, I wouldn’t be in the best health of my life right now.

I wouldn’t know my mission in life was to help other people heal their digestive issues.

And I wouldn’t get to meet awesome people, like Kyle.

Today, I’m honored to give Kyle a platform to share his story with you.

Like me, Kyle isn’t looking to “go back” to before he was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease… instead he’s embracing a bright future and awesome health with the help of SCD (and his lovely wife). [click to continue…]
