Specific Carbohydrate Diet

The “Specific Carbohydrate Diet” was originally developed by Dr Haas, for the daughter of Elaine Gottschall. Since then, the low carb Specific Carbohydrate Diet has been used to treat Crohn’s disease, Celiac disease, Cystic Fibrosis, Ulcerative Colitis, chronic diarrhea and candidiasis.

This low carbohydrate diet is extremely strict: no grains, no lactose, and no sucrose. The diet is extremely natural and unrefined as possible, as it’s aim is to develop a healthy digestive system. You can find it published by Elaine Gottschall, in the diet book “Breaking the Vicious Cycle: Intestinal Health through Diet”.

Your body’s health and immune system are affected by yeast and bacteria overgrowth, damaging the walls of your intestines. A healthy low carb diet, such as the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, is required to restore balance within your body.

Low carbohydrate foods allowed in this diet include: fresh or frozen vegetables, legumes, unprocessed meats, honey, most fruits, some nuts and natural cheeses.

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet is ideal for those people with any of the previously mentioned conditions, as well as the low carb diets looking for an even healthier alternative.
