Last year both of my kids were diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. This was devestating news for our family. Dr Suskind and the SCD gave us hope. And now our whole family is much healthier because of it.

We now celebrate 2 1/2 years of clinical remission.

The turn around was quite dramatic, and she has been following the diet, and continuing to feel healthy, for a year now.

Son diagnosed with UC in July 2014 at age 28. Asacol caused horrible side effects. Pentasa wasn't working. Started the diet August 25, 2014. Follow up at Dr in January 2015. We were told the diet doesn't work. No help offered. Son took himself off Pentasa

The specific carbohydrate diet has improved my IBD symptoms immensely. I am so relieved that I am able to run again without being limited by my indigestion. Changing my diet was a challenge, but definitely manageable.
