The book review written by Mark Meloon helped us tremendously as we contemplated why our MD would not change/modify the treatment he outlined for my DS newly diagnosed crohn's. We are using the diet with great success in just 10 days time and we wanted a different schedule for drug reduction- but from the perspective of the MD, he would be negligent and irresponsible in his own mind if he recommended a diet that did not have more scientific studies to back it up. Since the MD himself doesn't have Crohn's and thus no personal experience with the SCDiet, how can he say to a patient, "it works." He must go with the drugs that he has experience with. He's doing the best that he can. Now we as consumers then have to take this diet and use it to finish the job of regaining health and not be frustrated on the allopathic medical community. We must seek for integration of many medical models.

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.
