Dear Lou C,
I have posted about this before, and I apologize if you've already heard
about it from me. But just in case you haven't, I'll post the info again.
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 www.scdiet.org , and there is a list at
SCD-list@longisland.com  which you can subscribe to by sending an email to
SCD-list-subscribe@longisland.com .

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. I hope
that your daughter will look into it.

Best regards,Janice
