In 2010, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. Since then, I have tried my best to treat it with every medication under the sun. I have faithfully taken the asacol, imuran and remicade but I have been discouraged with the results and unconvinced that they can ever truly manage my disease.
I also remain unconvinced that the doctor’s are right– that the best we can do is treat symptoms. It is this belief and desire that has prompted me to take the leap. Six weeks ago I took my last bite of sugar, starch and grains and am now following the Specific Carbohydrates Diet.
This is my attempt to stay faithfully to the diet by documenting my attempts to eat, and eat well. I’m not much of a cook or baker but I will do my best and I hope you enjoy the results!
