SCD Diet Success Stories

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…]

Rachel's Gut Healing Success

When people get sick, it’s pretty common practice to go see the doctor.

But along my health journey, I ended up firing most of mine…

Why?

Because I wanted to get to the root cause of my symptoms and they didn’t know any better than to lead me down the endless road of prescription drugs.

See, I wanted more.

But it quickly became clear that the key to long-lasting health would have to come from within….

Several years later, I’d consider myself the CEO of my own health – and I couldn’t have done it without the help of the SCD diet and a few key supplements.

Our friend Rachel had a very similar experience; after several failed appointments and being slapped with a life sentence to prescription drugs, she too realized her healing would have to be self-led.

Continue reading to see just how much Rachel was able to overcome…  simply by trusting her own intuition. [click to continue…]

Cavin B SCD Success Story

We all have pivotal moments in our lives. Something happens, and from then on, nothing is ever the same.

There are of course the beautiful, positive ones like a marriage or the birth of a child…

But there are also the moments that can be much more frightening. The death of a loved one. A diagnosis. An injury.

And as I get older (and hopefully a little wiser) I’ve noticed one thing over and over – what defines people is how they react to these moments.

We can’t always control what happens to us. We get sick. A parent or spouse dies. We fall down. But we can control how we react.

Today, we’re very excited to share the story of our friend Cavin. Cavin fell down and suffered a traumatic brain injury that doctors said should have killed him.

Not only did Cavin not die – he is now thriving in ways he never before thought possible. It all came down to how he reacted to his injury.

The most important thing he did? He changed the way he ate to fuel his brain.

Traumatic brain injuries are something we don’t talk about enough – and something we certainly don’t discuss being connected to nutrition – so I’m overjoyed to have Cavin share in his own words how SCD and diet were integral in his healing process. [click to continue…]

Kimmy A. SCD Success Story

Most people with undiagnosed Celiac disease have trouble keeping weight on. Before I was diagnosed, it didn’t seem to matter how much I ate, I kept losing weight.

But it doesn’t always unfold that way.

Kimmy experienced the opposite problem – she had stubborn weight that she couldn’t lose, no matter what she did.

She had other health complaints too – bad teeth, depression, kidney problems – but they all seemed unconnected.

It wasn’t until she was properly diagnosed with Celiac disease (after 33 years of symptoms!) that Kimmy was able to heal her gut, get healthy, and lose the weight.

But more importantly, she got rid of the brain fog and depression that had plagued her since she was a teenager.

Kimmy’s story is a powerful reminder that our gut health is at the root of everything – and the benefits of healing the gut go far beyond easy digestion! [click to continue…]
