The book review written by Mark Meloon helped us tremendously as we contemplated why our MD would not change/modify the treatment he outlined for my DS newly diagnosed crohn's. We are using the diet with great success in just 10 days time and we wanted a different schedule for drug reduction- but from the perspective of the MD, he would be negligent and irresponsible in his own mind if he recommended a diet that did not have more scientific studies to back it up. Since the MD himself doesn't have Crohn's and thus no personal experience with the SCDiet, how can he say to a patient, "it works." He must go with the drugs that he has experience with. He's doing the best that he can. Now we as consumers then have to take this diet and use it to finish the job of regaining health and not be frustrated on the allopathic medical community. We must seek for integration of many medical models.

For those of us who are relieved to have access to information which empowers us to take care of ourselves, this book is a godsend. With it I have been able to completely regain my health without the use of medications. It is a tragedy that this information is not available to everyone with digestive disorders, so that we all can make informed personal choices about how we wish to approach our treatment. People with the determination to regain their health will almost certainly benefit from learning about this diet.
