I was diagnosed with fistulizing CD in the rectum in 2007 and had very large and painfull rectal fistulas that surfaced about
an inch from my anos. I also had setons installed to help draining. My GI wanted me to start remacade, but since I was not having any other symtoms like D or stomach pains, other then the fistulas, I opted to start the SCD diet rather then turn off mu immune system. Within 8 months of starting the diet, both fistulas were healed up completely and the setons removed. I was also taking pentassa at the same time.
GI said he has never in all his career seen fistulas as large as mine heal with only pentassa. I never told him I was on the SCD diet. Now was it the SCD diet or the pentassa or the combination of both that healed me, I guess I will never know, but to this day, I have not had one CD symptom or another problem with fistulas. I am still on the SCD diet and taking the pentassa.
Read the book "breaking the vicious cycle" you have nothing to loose by trying and all to gain if it works for you. <!-- Edit -->
