I started this diet to help a friend with UC. We would 'compete' with different diets, supplements, and gimmicks to see what had an effect and what did not; we would compare symptoms & effects. I was like a 'control subject' because I do not have bowel disease. We did this for a year before I found SCD.

This diet had an immediate effect on me! The yogurt made my stomach feel great & I had more energy. 2 weeks on this diet cured my life-long eczema. (For eczema - I had tried no milk diet, celiac diet, probiotics, antihistimines, vegan diet, HCL acid & oil supplements - nothing worked) I haven't been sick with colds or the flu once since I started this diet. I used to get every virus that passed by me before.

I maintain this diet even though I do not have a 'serious' disease. It is an easy diet after you become accustomed to it. Giving up processed foods is a must do if you value good health in the slightest.

My friend with UC joined me on this diet and is loving it. It is a Godsend to both of us.

If I can do this without being forced unto it because of a 'serious' illness, I see no reason why anyone else would have a problem with trying it.

I see many people in life who wait upon a 'magic pill' or supplement/herb to relieve them of symptoms without any effort at all on their part, but when faced with a 'cure' which involves them changing their diet away from pasta, bread, and prepared ready-to-eat goodies and putting some thought, time, and effort into preparing the food which sustains their life - they prefer to be stay sick.

I was given Elaine Gottschall's book, "Breaking the Vicious Cycle." I stuck with the instructions and within only a few days, much to my amazement, the bleeding and diarrhea stopped! I've been on this diet for 5 months, following it faithfully and feeling wonderful. All symptoms have disappeared! I am a new person with energy as I never had before.
