The purpose of the SCDWiki is to provide support and encouragement for those who are either starting or already on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. We hope that the content of SCDWiki.com will ease digestive suffering, increase public awareness and educate medical professionals about the power of the SCD diet as a complementary treatment.
Our collective experience has shown that the SCD diet makes a substantial, positive difference in the treatment of digestive disorders. We know of many persons who got their lives back using SCD in conjunction with professional medical treatment.
SCD can reduce and, in time, completely eliminate the terrible, life ruining symptoms of digestive disorders. Followers of SCD can and do lead a normal life. Topics include our experiences with overcoming challenges such as: travel, eating out, athletics, and hospital stays. These "how to" subjects are not addressed in the Breaking the Vicious Cycle book (BTVC).
Why this Wiki?
We want to support the BTVC book and the SCD diet. The reason for the formation of SCDWiki.com is to facilitate the successful use of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). We are an international group of volunteer users of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. We have formed the SCDWiki.com to summarize and publicize a distillation of our combined experiences in working with this wonderful, healing diet.
The SCDWiki authors and editors come from diverse backgrounds with different digestive situations. We have collected tips we have read and combined them with our own SCD experiences to create an easy to follow guide. This website contains a collection of summaries by topic in easy to read articles.
The purpose of SCDWiki.com is to assist persons in implementing the Specific Carbohydrate Diet as delineated in the book, Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.
