SCD Diet Success Stories

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…]


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…]


Ruth P. SLG Success Story Image

Every day, we receive emails from amazing people of extremely diverse backgrounds from all over the globe.

I know something about them.

If you are reading this, I know something about you too.

It boils down to one, common thing: you are all not willing to settle.

You are not willing to settle for feeling sick and tired any longer…

And you’re determined to not sit back and get caught up in what I like to call having a “this will do” attitude.

While there are many things that can rob us of our full health potential, “this will do” type of thinking is one of the most limiting..

I personally almost fell into this trap when I was told by my doctor that the gluten-free diet was the answer to my Celiac disease symptoms. In fact, after fanatical adherence to the diet I kept getting more and more sick. Sure, I experienced mild improvements here and there but it left me searching for more.

I knew it wasn’t the answer, and I made my mind up that I wasn’t going to settle.

And so did our friend, Ruth.

There was a point in her journey where she was pretty happy with having less diarrhea, cramping, and a semi-improved rash. She could have easily stopped there and accepted the mediocre improvement.

But she didn’t. And I’m guessing you don’t want to either.

If you’re feeling like you’re constantly falling short of your healing potential but you still want to experience what it’s like to feel better than you ever imagined, let Ruth’s story inspire you to keep going.

Have you ever been told your symptoms weren’t “that bad?”

How about that it was “just IBS?”

Or maybe that your fatigue, acne, and chronic bloating (or any other symptom) were just normal for you.

Your doctors – maybe even your family and friends – were telling you to get over it, live with it, forget about it. But you knew deep down that you deserved to feel better.

When my doctor told me it was just IBS, I took my health and happiness into my own hands. What began with the SCD diet turned into a lifelong pursuit of health and happiness – and the same thing happened to my friend Liz.

Today, I’m excited to introduce you to Liz and let her share her story of healing with you.
