For our patients and friends who are using the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

The SCD, is the best diet tool I have found for helping heal some serious metabolic problems. People both in our practice and elsewhere have reported that the SCD has helped with:

  • Digestive and intestinal problems including:
    • Celiac disease
    • Colitis
    • Crohns
    • Irritable bowel
  • Inflammation
  • Chronic depression
  • Autism
  • Carbohydrate addiction
  • Chronic obesity
  • Chronic fatigue

Helpful SCD Websites

Elaine Gottshall’s Website, Breaking the Vicious Cycle

Elaine Gottchall is the one who started it all with her groundbreaking book, “Breaking the Vicious Cycle”. This site is a wealth of information and a good place to start if you want information about the SCD. There are lists of “legal and Illegal” foods, testimonials from people who have had their loves changed by the SCD and links to many related sites.

Clink on the “Support” link for a listing of SCD friendly doctors and support groups around the world.

This is a great place to buy supplies to make the SCD easier. Yogurt makers and culture, very good quality almond flour, recipe books including one written by Lucy! Lucy is also a font of information and is always happy to help out with advice, answers to questions and suggestions!
