Welcome to the Support section!
You will probably find it difficult when you begin the SCD™, most people do, a radical change of diet, new ways of cooking, sourcing new foods and you probably already have to manage a difficult illness. It can be a difficult road but its well worth the journey. We have been down this road before and many of us are likely to have a similar condition as you. We support each other and are eager to support you too. We will be able to answer many of your questions or even if you just need to tell someone how you feel we can listen and sympathise.
There are a number of groups some with different flavours and facilities but they all have the same overall aim, to support you as you implement the SCD™ as described in “Breaking the Vicious Cycle”. Join as many groups as you like but it’s a good idea to also join one in your region if possible, this way you can get help with SCD™ compliant foods in your area.

This diet may not work for everyone but if you have a choice between scary possibilities (high-risk medication, extreme surgery, eventual bowel cancer) or a little self-restraint and denial (avoiding some foods you might like), then the choice to me is clear. Everyone with these sorts of problems should at least TRY the ideas in this book, down to the letter, for at least a month, and see how they go.
