Clostridium Difficile

Charlene writes:
C. Difficile is a bacteria that certain people carry and sometimes they have no symptoms at all. It is usually activated by antibiotics. Do a search and you will find some great info. There is no other treatment right now for it except for drugs. Those two drugs are called Flagyl and Vancomycin. When it is activated it becomes an overgrowth of bad bacteria and it becomes spore-like. It actually gets little claws and grips on to the bowel lining. That is why starving it does not work. It is incredibly resilient and has been given the names Clostridium Difficle Colitis or Pseudomembranous Colitis. For people who are afflicted with this the odds of getting it again are 20-30%.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
