There is a diet for IBD, called the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). It is taken from the book "Breaking the Vicious Cycle", by Elaine Gottschall. You can read more about it at , and there is a list at which you can subscribe to by sending an email to .

Although I have had a severe case of UC, after following this diet strictly for 6 months my GI told me that my colon looked normal. I have been on the diet for about 18 months now, and since that examination six months into the diet, my colon has continued to look normal. And I feel very, very well.

After being so ill, unable to look after my family or myself, the experience of healing on this diet has been so LIBERATING - I can hardly describe it.

There are about 250 of us on the SCD list, and success stories are
frequently shared. I'm certainly not the only one. The diet requires
will-power and time, but you could not pay me enough to go off of it.

Best regards,
