So you've just popped your head in here to see what everyone's talking about You may be wondering what SCD is all about and whether you should move to it from the diet you or your autistic child currently follows Well in my opinion, it's a "must buy."! The book includes history, research, outlines the diet, provides resources, recipes and a comprehensive chapter telling "The Celiac Story".

Fifty years of research authenticates the protocols outlined and makes makes for exciting reading if you have a troubled tummy. The SCD book "Breaking the Vicious Cycle"(BTVC) is a regular bible for the bowel, a gift to the gut a boon to the brain! The wonders of the brain-gut connection unfold and the book explains how the right food can heal. You'll probably wear out your copy of BTVC in the months following it's purchase.

And if you decide as Oprah always says, to "get with the program" you can also be strongly supported online by experienced people now including parents of autistic children. The parents are very excited about positive behavorial changes in their children. Elaine Gottschall the scientist and mother who researched for 45 years, wrote the book and has dedicated herself to taking the diet to those who need it.

I've read Internet stories by adults on the diet but it is those from the parents of autistic children in particular which brought tears of hope and happiness to my eyes. a child talking to her doll for the first time, making coherent sentences, developing an appetite and passing healthy stools.

You will be embarking on a life changing experience for yourself and your family. and surely embrace this as a personal bible of help to deal effectively with Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and Celiac Disease as well as other gastric diseases.
