This is an email I received from one of the UC’ers who uses this site, and what a great message to get, have a read:
Ann here from England, thought I would give you an update, I purchased the SCD book by Elaine Gottshall, and bought most of the ingredients required to commence myself healing plan, after 3 weeks of living by this food bible the colitis Flare up has settled down no signs of any blood or diarrhea, for which I am over moon with.
So heart felt thanks for all the info on your website, This enforces my decision to renounce the hard drugs which my specialist wanted me to start on in February of this year. You have mentioned a facebook page, unfortunately I don`t do facebook, and have no objection you mentioning me in your list of self healing people.
My you continue to keep well, take care my lucky angel
Thank you Ann for sending the message over, this really made my day.
I’m sure this message will inspire others who are having a hard time getting their UC symptoms under control to try the SCD diet related treatment ideas as well.
Medications are great, and they do work for a decent percentage of people to manage colitis symptoms, but for other people with colitis, they don’t always bring the results that folks are looking for.
So big hip hip horray for some other ways of going about the treatment of this nasty disease.
Have a great week to all, especially you Ann,
