SCD Diet Success Stories

Eric M Pic

Still unsure how the gut-brain axis relates to real-world issues?  

After reading this courageous account of perseverance, I think you’ll understand much deeper how other people experience gut-brain symptoms. Also, there’s an unexpected benefit of reading a true account of health struggle and success.

As you read and relate to Eric, you’ll learn to do so more with your own body. The deep caring and curiosity you have for another will unlock things in your own journey. That’s why sharing stories and listening to them is so powerful.

Eric is removing the mask today.  

And it’s going to feel so good.

Many of his closest people to him have no idea what he’s been through. And now hopefully, through this detailed and amazing revelation, they’ll connect with him better, understand him better and even be motivated to change their health.

Whether you have anxiety, histamine intolerance, hypoglycemia or have seen less than stellar results on a FODMAPs diet, low-histamine diet or others…

This piece might give you a new insight about the downward spiral of disease… as well as the upward spiral of health.

Have you seen the show American Ninja Warrior?

These women and men are doing things that are mind blowing! Watch this short clip or this one.

As humans, we are fascinated by athletes, celebrities and others who do the seemingly impossible.

But this phenomenon extends beyond events, into our everyday lives.


Because most of us are just waiting for someone to show us what’s possible.

That’s what shows like American Ninja Warrior do. They stir something deep inside of us that proves to us what’s possible.

I know you know someone who…

… has lost 20 or 30 plus pounds.

… got that high-ranking job that should have been impossible.

… got out of massive debt.

Or like our guest poster, Stacey, who resolve their complex and painful health issues, which is just as amazing as any of the feats on American Ninja Warrior.

It takes dedication, courage, and determination to figure out your health issues and get rid of them. There’s no easy button. It’s one of two choices (1) hard work or (2) a lifetime of worsening symptoms, pills and doctor bills.

I so appreciate you Stacey for opening your heart and life for all of us to be inspired by. And I hope that you the reader are inspired to be next — next to tell your story, next to start the hard work and next to learn what it’s like to get your energy and health back.

Will you be next (free NEW webinar here)?

Have you seen the movie “The Butterfly Effect?”

It’s a powerful movie that shows the effects of how single events in our lives shape them.

If you search your history, it’s likely you’ll find an event or two in which everything changed for the worse with your health. I have them, Jordan has them, every coaching client I ever worked with had them.

Sadly, we don’t typically see the unravelling of our health until we are really suffering.

Petra’s story is a courageous tale that shows this in great detail. I only wish more people knew how quickly one stressful event, or one round of antibiotics can begin the downward health spiral. If they did, they might not end up in the hospital being diagnosed with scary diseases like Crohn’s.

If there’s one thing you take away from this story, I hope it’s the fact that almost all of our health symptoms are connected and if the root issues aren’t addressed, our bodies will continue to break down. [click to continue…]

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. Each week, we meet as a team and talk about what success stories are currently being worked on and when we can publish 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 Richelle’s story. She made a choice. She took control. And she’ll never look back!

How long did you struggle with your digestive pain? Did it feel like a black cloud followed 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 our latest rockstar, Carly, who much like myself was given the standard Celiac disease prescription (a gluten-free diet) and sent on her way.  At first, this can seem like you’ve been given a golden ticket to a healthy and happy life.

After all, your doctor knows best right? Well, if you’ve been following us for any length of time, you’ll know that most Celiacs are slowly dying, because the Gluten-Free diet is simply not enough.

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