SCD Diet Success Stories

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.

Dawn SCD Success Story

As humans, most of us don’t like to be told “Do this or else!” (I think it’s pretty obvious why.)

I can’t even begin to count the number of times I was told the only answer to managing my Celiac disease symptoms was medication and the gluten free diet… or else I’d continue to feel worse and worse.

But I fully believe if I would have listened to the ultimatums of multiple doctors, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

And neither would Dawn, who I’m really excited to introduce to you.

Through the recounting of her journey, Dawn shows us the importance of being our own health advocate and believing in the body’s natural ability to heal.

Deep down, she knew medication and surgery wasn’t the only route for her Ulcerative Colitis diagnosis that had her glued to the toilet 15 times a day.

Instead, she took it upon herself to attack the root of the issue.

After intensely searching online, she found the SCD diet and felt like a new person within just 17 days of starting.

If your back’s against the wall and you’ve been told there are no other options, please read Dawn’s story below.

Darla-D-SCD-Success-Story-Image-1

Have you ever feared something to the point where it’s all you thought about – all day, every day?

For myself, Darla, and so many others it was our health.

What Doctor should I see now? Am I dying? What if this doesn’t work?

These were typical thoughts that ran through my head on a daily basis and it was exhausting.

Those same fears plagued Darla for 25 years, as she exhausted all options to relieve her painful constipation symptoms.

After just 5 days on the SCD diet, she finally found the relief she was so desperate to find.

All the pain, bloating, fear, doctor appointments and embarrassment she once knew as normal are completely gone.

Darla has not only helped herself, but she’s implemented SCD/GAPS, functional and integrative medicine principles into the nutrition curriculum of the university she is currently teaching at.

If you’re ready to stop fearing your health and overcome that lost feeling that may be lurking inside, continue reading about Darla’s amazing journey. [click to continue…]

The SCD Lifestyle community is made up of every kind of person imaginable: young and old, men and women, parents and children, from every corner of the world and with every condition under the sun.

But all these people – vastly different – have 1 thing in common (and this is what makes them Tough Cases like Jordan and I were).

Almost every member of the SCD Community is dealing with multiple conditions and circumstances that cause their symptoms.

For Jordan it wasn’t just Celiac – it was Celiac and parasites.

For me, it wasn’t just IBS – it was IBS and adrenal fatigue.

For Susan, it was chronic Lyme, mold exposure, and parasites that contributed to her symptoms.

The amazing thing is that SCD can help all these conditions – and a lot more.

SCD has been used for more than 60 years because it’s so versatile – whether you have SIBO or blasto, Crohn’s, UC, or autism – SCD can help you (like it helped us and like it helped Susan).

I’m excited to share Susan’s story with our community today, and I hope her positivity, perseverance, and healing inspires you as much as it inspired us! [click to continue…]
