SCD Diet Success Stories

Have you settled for poor health?

It’s a tough question, but an important one.

Accepting our symptoms as a normal part of life can turn into permission to stop fighting.

Don’t’ get me wrong, there were moments on my journey when I wanted to do just that.

But here’s the key – refusing to settle.

And in order to do that, we need to be equipped with all the right tools to heal – just like Mara was.

The best practitioners all have what we call a “Hero’s Journey.” It’s their own story of sickness and healing.

You might know mine and Steve’s stories by now – how we both had digestive problems in college, and helped each other through the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

But do you know why we talk about our story so much?

Our own experiences with sickness and healing are what power us to help others. We know what it is like to suffer – and we know what it is like to take back control and heal.

The people we help the most are the ones who see a bit of themselves in our story.

That’s why today, I’m excited to share our recommended practitioner Christina Tidwell’s Hero’s Journey with you.

She struggled with Adult-Onset Still’s Disease or AOSD, a rare autoinflammatory disease that brings on a myriad of symptoms, including persistent high fevers, joint pain, and a salmon-colored bumpy rash

Now she’s med-free and helping others who are going through the same battle she’s overcome.

I hope you see something in Christina’s story that makes you think, “Hey, that is just like me.”

And if Christina’s story does resonate with you, I hope you’ll consider taking the next step to work with her. [click to continue…]


One of the most powerful tools there is when it comes to getting our health back isn’t the perfect diet or all the right supplements…

It’s our attitude.

I know, we get it – a positive attitude may be the last thing on your mind when you’re sick….

But it could be the difference between getting your health back and staying sick.

Steve, myself and Mimi – we all had major setbacks on the road to getting healthy.

And it was a positive attitude that gave us the strength to keep moving forward – to keep tweaking, adjusting and adapting.

When those thoughts of negativity crept in, it was Mimi’s can-do attitude that gave her the strength to make that one life-changing adjustment.

The adjustment that helped her overcome IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and Type 2 Diabetes.

If you’ve lost hope, can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, or are just plain tired of being sick, this story is for you.

The power of community is an immeasurable tool when it comes to overcoming health issues.

In fact, it’s probably one of the most underestimated.

The truth is we all need someone to hold us accountable and see us through our bad days.

For Jordan, it was the online SCD community.

For me, it was Jordan who stood by me as I worked my way through the SCD diet.

For Alyssa, it was her mom’s support that kept her from giving up.

And it’s just what she needed….

From lying on the floor wondering how she’d get through another day to camping, traveling the world and following her dreams, the SCD diet changed her life.

If you’re needing some inspiration on your own journey, this story is for you.

Debbie's Specific Carbohydrate Diet Success Story

IBS is often referred to as a diagnosis of exclusion. It offers little value to the patient and, at best, is a frustrating diagnosis.

Unfortunately, all too many know what that feels like… nearly 11% of the population to be exact.

I used to be one of them. And it wasn’t until I started paying attention to the research on diet that I finally got ahold of my IBS symptoms in just a couple of weeks.

Debbie, an SCD community member and friend, used to be part of those statistics, too.

Her IBS symptoms were so bad she was afraid to leave the house.

Fast forward 15 years and, thanks to the SCD diet, Debbie is a completely different person.

Read on, as she shares exactly how she overcame the unrelenting gas, cramping and diarrhea that used to rule her life. [click to continue…]
