A new study from Rush University shows SCD is effective at healing IBD and is the largest of its kind ever to do so. The key finding of the article in support of the SCD is "we now show that at least a subgroup of patients with IBD may notably improve as a result of following the SCD." The article was publishe d in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietics and is openly available for download.
It sounds crazy but if you are a chronic sufferer of colitis, you will understand why I was so thrilled. I continued to follow the specific carbohydrate diet that Elaine has described in "Breaking the vicious cycle." Gradually all of my symptoms resolved over one year. For the last two years, I am completely symptom-free, back to my normal weight and pursue all of my activities including a busy medical practice.
