Wonderful SCD Results for Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome

February 8th, 2005

I just wanted to send you a thank you note and let you know about the wonderful results my nine year old son, Matthew, has had with his Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome (CVS)since being on the SCD™. Two years ago, I contacted you to understand whether you were aware of anyone using the SCD™ for CVS. You indicated that you seemed to recall one instance, but were hesitant to advise either way. I just want to let you know that although my son still suffers periodically for the "abdominal migraines", since being on the SCD™, the symptoms are MUCH less severe in frequency and form. In the past two years, I have not even had to consider whether or not I should take my son to the hospital for IV's to stop the vomiting. While not formally diagnosed with CVS (it is a process of elimination type of diagnosis, and I did not want to put him through that)he has every single sypmtom and there is a related family history. He has had it since birth, which is fairly unusual. Consequently, I consider him to have a pretty severe form of it, so his improvement is truly remarkable. Our life has changed considerably from not being able to plan anything due to the frequent and severe nature of his ailment, to being able to plan on most things, his cycle now being the exception, and much less severe. You have touched our family, and a truly wonderful young man (by many people's counts other than his parents') in a way that is difficult to explain with mere words. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and many blessings to you and your loved ones.

>From Matthew "You have been a blessing, and it is so great not being sick all of the time!".

I have shared our results with the CVS organization to pass along, and thought you would also be interested in knowing the impact that the SCD™ has had on our lives.

This diet was truly an answer to prayer!


Natalie, Loren, and Matthew Staley

I was given Elaine Gottschall's book, "Breaking the Vicious Cycle." I stuck with the instructions and within only a few days, much to my amazement, the bleeding and diarrhea stopped! I've been on this diet for 5 months, following it faithfully and feeling wonderful. All symptoms have disappeared! I am a new person with energy as I never had before.
