I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis well over a year ago and had been suffering on a regular basis until I got on the SCD diet. I saw multiple doctors who all told me diet is irrelevant yet after going med free thanks to the SCD diet and curing my UC, I see it's very relevant. I was on multiple medications before starting this diet, asacol, lialda, mercaptopurine (6mp) to name a few along with multiple prednisone cycles along the way. Prednisone worked yet every time I got off it I flared up and had to go back on it. This awful cycle ended when I started this diet. I read a lot of reviews saying this diet is too difficult, I couldn't disagree more. Would you rather spend a few extra minutes in the kitchen or the rest of your life in the bathroom?

I am in my 20s, before starting this diet I never cooked a day in my life. I bought a George Foreman grill George Foreman GR20B Family-Size 60-Square-Inch Nonstick Grill and it has made this diet extremely simple to implement. If you're worried about cleaning it every day, use parchment paper around whatever you're cooking. If you're wondering how much time you should cook something, go to google or youtube.

There are hundreds of 5 star reviews for this book on Amazon alone because of how well this diet works.

There are tons of websites, cook books, message boards, etc. based around the SCD diet outlined in this book because of how well this diet works.

I spent thousands of dollars to see top doctors and specialists who didn't believe what you ate mattered. I could have bought this book and saved a lot of time and money because of how well this diet works.

I waited until I was near the point where I needed surgery. DO NOT HESITATE, DO NOT LISTEN TO ANYONE THAT TELLS YOU DIET IS IRRELEVANT. If you suffer from UC or Crohn's buy this book and try it out, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

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.
