A Miracle

December 7th, 2004

My 10 year old daughter suffered from massive weight loss, diarrhea, stomach pain, fever, mouth ulcers. She was diagnosed with both celiac and crohn's disease 7 weeks ago. My heart broke as I read what was in store for her, ineffective meds, incapacitating symptoms, operations...while doing research, I stumbled across the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. The success stories sounded too good to be true. I was afraid to get my hopes up. But I felt it was worth pursuing before putting her on the steroids and other drugs the doctor recommended. I ordered Elaine's book, stocked up on "legal foods" and watched in amazement as my daughter began to bloom again. For the first few days, she seemed to get worse. But on the fifth day, the stomach pain stopped. A week into the diet the diarrhea stopped. And her appetite began! She eats like an NFL linebacker. My formerly picky eater consumes more calories in a day than she used to eat in a week.

Thus far, three weeks into the diet, she has gained an astonishing 11 lbs. She's gone from not even being on the doctors chart for weight, to being in the 28th percentile. She says she "feels happy again." This happened with out the use of any medication. Believe me, I will keep her on this miraculous diet. It is more work for me, but worth every minute in the kitchen.

God Bless Elaine Gottschall for writing this wonderful book. If you are searching for help with bowel disease, you owe it to yourself to at least get the book and give the diet a try.

For those of us who are relieved to have access to information which empowers us to take care of ourselves, this book is a godsend. With it I have been able to completely regain my health without the use of medications. It is a tragedy that this information is not available to everyone with digestive disorders, so that we all can make informed personal choices about how we wish to approach our treatment. People with the determination to regain their health will almost certainly benefit from learning about this diet.
