the specific carbohydrate diet is something that changes how you eat food, by changing what you decide to eat.
Ok so here is my lovely UC story – I am a 23 year old female and I’ve had Ulcerative Colitis for about a year. I was diagnosed in February 2011 after a colonoscopy following 2 months of trying to figure out what virus or bacterial infection was plaguing my colon. I had blood and […]
Peppermint Tea (just plain or with honey) Really helps because it is relaxing, and helps keep symptoms calm. I am not running to the bathroom all the time. I have been on medications for very bad symptoms however its been awhile since I’ve last had to run to them. Initially I suffered from bloody lose […]
I’m a 26 year old graduate student who was diagnosed with UC 2 weeks ago. The process that led to my eventual diagnosis was incredibly frustrating and degrading ( I had one doctor tell me I just needed to do more ab crunches!?)
I’m a 180 pound guy who may or may not have ulcerative colitis, but so far the medications don’t seem to be super effective, and I’m considering starting the SCD diet. But, if I can’t drink alcohol or milk or some other things, I’m not sure how easy this diet is going to be. But […]

Details that everyone should understand about total healing from the SCD diet, and personal opinions about some of the root causes of the underlying symptoms and how to clear the symptoms up.
