SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) and UC Success Stories
One of the most important things for people who are considering trying the SCD for treating their ulcerative colitis is to know that other people before them have had success. This is by far the most important thing to know with many things in life, but especially when you are dealing with symptoms, and looking at alternative treatments because medications just aren’t working. What makes SCD success stories even more important, is the fact that nearly every doctor who practices Western medicine will deny that the SCD is a valid treatment for UC. So as you can see, the cards are already stacked against people who want to use the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Since there are so many people treating their inflammatory bowel disease with SCD, the time is getting closer to when doctors will have to start recognizing the effects that diet has on the gut.
SCD Does Work Well for Some People Who Are Suffering with Symptoms
The good news is that the SCD does work for many people. Many of the people who’s stories are listed below had been dealing with ulcerative colitis symptoms for many years and were literally at their last options before having to seriously consider surgery.
First Hand SCD Experiences That May Change Your Colitis
I had such a negative image of this SCD diet when I was originally introduced to it. I learned about it from a book that was sent to me in the mail by a family friend. The book didn’t look too interesting, and when I started reading it, I remember thinking the SCD could not possibly be a practical long term diet. The food was just too limiting I thought. That was three years ago. What a difference three years can make. Not only have I finally found a way to control my ulcerative colitis symptoms, but I have learned that there are literally thousands of other people with IBD who use the SCD just like I do.
Examples of 3 Different SCD Success Stories from Ulcerative Colitis Patients
Jessica began the SCD diet just a short while ago, and was able to see some great results within 3 months on the diet. Her ulcerative colitis was beginning to really get bad, so it was great that she found a new treatment. You can read Jessica’s SCD diet story here.
Adam was dealing with one final option of surgery, that’s me. At the point when I started the SCD diet, it wasn’t even an option, it was my only option as all the medications had not worked out or were giving me very bad side effects. I was very happy to meet another person at my house who used SCD for her colitis, and that is what convinced me to begin the Specific Carbohydrate Diet also.
