No, I have not read it but it sounds interesting and I have seen it mentioned quite a bit. I got a bit discouraged after trying the SCD diet without any improvement and since, I have felt like nothing short of medication helps. I read so many good reviews of the SCD diet and so much positive information, I guess I felt like if that didn't help, nothing "natural" would.

Yes I own it. I actually have read/own every Crohn's book out there. I would say its def worth reading. A lot of tips on how to be just overally healthy with food, supplements and what-not.

hey notsosicklygirl, how long did you try the SCD for? I'm sorry it didn't work for you, could you tell me how long you tried? I've talked to a lot of people who have also failed it and most of the time they tried it only for a few weeks or had a serious complication early on in the diet. What was your experience? Thanks.
