I got on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) 3 weeks ago and have had a complete reversal of all Crohn's symptoms. I am off all medications and have never felt better ... can't believe I didn't do this sooner. The swelling and intense pain in my stomach have completely disappeared. Actually I tried it once before, but not for more than a few days (in other words, not long enough to see results.) There is plenty of information about the SCD on the web. Basically you can't have any refined sugar, starch, grains, and most dairy. Most vegetables, fruits, nuts, meats, cheeses, and eggs are allowed. The fruit is an excellent replacement for all the carbs my body was missing, and helps to provide a constant source of energy. There are a lot of "fine points" that you have to follow so I definitely recommend getting the book.
