After a year and a half on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I finally followed my gastroenterologist's request to get a colonoscopy. After all, it had been over four years since the last time anyone had given me any sort of exam of the gut, and 18 years with Crohns.

My doc says "We got all the way to the cecum. No evidence at all of Crohns. No scars. No inflammation. Nothing. You look completely normal."

So, is it remission, or is it the diet? Well, even in 'remission' past exams have showed indication of disease in me. My gut feeling more than tells me it is the diet, plus some yoga for stress relief. No drugs, no side effects. Perhaps the diet is an alternative way to bring on a controlled remission?

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.
