The SCDWiki is devoted to assisting beginners to find digestive wellness and healing with the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD or SCDiet) as delineated in the paperback book, Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall, B.A., M.Sc. This diet has been used successfully by thousands of people to help alleviate symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease even into remission.
What the book lacks is "how to" techniques. How to maintain SCD: while working in an office, while traveling, doing sports, attending family events, attending a business conference, etc. It is the purpose of SCDWiki to try to fill this gap, to be a quick start guide for living a full life with SCD. This Wiki focuses on helping beginners through their first year and includes tips from SCD veterans on how to overcome any problems that may arise.
The book, Breaking the Vicious Cycle is about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, its history, and its scientific background with many helpful recipes. The book has just come out with a fourteenth printing. The few page references currently on the wiki are for the thirteenth printing but should not be that different.
It is essential that anyone embarking on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) have access to a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall, B.A., M.Sc.(BTVC) now in its fourteenth printing. If you are unable to purchase a copy, see if your public library can obtain a copy for you. It is the authentic, official book on the SCD diet. The newly upgraded, official website for the book is "www.breakingtheviciouscycle.info" has a wealth of information, including a detailed list of allowable foods.
You are welcome to jump right into the SCDWiki; however, our focus is about successful techniques for SCD. It is important to read Breaking the Vicious Cycle and/or the official website first or in conjunction with using the SCDWiki. Most people soon feel better on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. How much time it takes depends entirely on each individual person. Within the SCD framework, each individual must adapt the diet to the needs of his or her own body. The SCDWiki can help you get there.
The purpose of this site is to assist persons in implementing the Specific Carbohydrate Diet as delineated in the book, Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall, B.A., M.Sc. It is not intended to be medical advice nor is it a substitute for consulting medical professionals.
