What is SCD?

The specific carbohydrate diet (SCD) is a nutritionally complete grain- free diet, low in sugar and lactose. It was developed by Dr. Sidney Haas, a pediatrician, in the 1920’s as treatment for celiac disease, but has more recently been used as a treatment for Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and IBS. To learn more about the science behind the diet and for a complete overview of what is allowed/not allowed in different phases of the diet – please visit the website for Breaking the Vicious Cycle , a book that is more or less the SCD bible and a good place for any newcomers to start.
