I had a beautiful older sister named Sheri, who we lost at a very young age and I have not seen the spelling very often, so I love your name and the spelling.
Yes, the SCD is the diet from the Breaking the Vicious Cycle Book. I lived on a lot of whole foods, meats, fruits, and veges. I ate a good deal of fiber, even when it caused pain (I slowed fiber and meats when I saw bleeding). My greatest fear after seeing my first scope (everything was jaundiced, yellowed and looked like someone started a weed-eater in there) was that my gut would scar and form a blockage, and many people helped me monitor myself, including a Doctor friend. They would not use most Crohn's drugs due to allergies and other issues. I used Asacol for a short time, then stopped after becoming symptom free for a time in hopes it would still work if I needed it in the future. This time when I chose to have my scope it was right after the holiday season, and my diet was kinda crappy all last year. I was a little afraid of what we would see, and I'm ecstatic with the results after trashing my diet for a full year prior. The diet is very difficult, not for everybody, and if I had had any choices, it would have been the last thing I would or could have done. My nephew was DG'd at 3 years old, has had 3 surgeries, been crippled off an on for a good part of his life, and swears a good deal of it could have been avoided, had he known about the SCD sooner.
There is SCD info in the resources (above right), and I will send you links to recipies if you want to know of what we eat, of want more info.

Be Patient And Tough, Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You
I get by with a lotta help from my friends!
Crohn's DG 2003 , symptoms included terrible joint and soft tissue pain, just met first cousin who suffers from Reactive Arthritis-explains sooo much.
Followed SCD Strictly 2003-06, then modified by adding new things 10-12 days apart to avoid delayed reactions in the form of arthritis symptoms.
Scope on 2-5-09 was great! Doc says no symptoms,No scope for 10 years!!!
