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.


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 saved my life. I was ill for 8 years before I discovered the diet. Now that I have been healthy for 7 years, it's still the only thing I need to stay symptom free. I do have to be strict, but very much worth it.
