SCD Success...

Specific Carbohydrate Diet


   My name is A.J. Forchette; I am living a full,happy life and I have Crohn’s disease.  I’ve developed this website to introduce you to an alternative, holistic treatment option if you are suffering from any of a variety of bowel diseases or even autism. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) is a nutritional regimen, created by Dr. Sidney V. Haas and popularized by biochemist Elaine Gottschall, author of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, which restricts the use of complex carbohydrates (disaccharides and polysaccarides) and eliminates refined sugar, all grains and starch from the diet. Sounds complicated, right? Well, I am a 17 year old high school student scholar, a “wanna-be” doctor, and an athlete.  I am NOT an expert on SCD nor am I qualified to give advice on your particular medical condition.  But if I can follow this diet, so can you!  What have you got to lose?

   My goal is to raise awareness of SCD.  I want restaurants to be as familiar with SCD as they are with “Gluten-Free” or “Lactose Intolerant”.  I want grocery stores to stock SCD friendly items on their shelves and to be able to answer knowledgeably when asked for help.  And I want both the medical community and the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) to give this diet a fighting chance! 

    I challenge you to think outside of the conventional pharmaceutical box. I want you to do your homework and research your disease.  I want you to responsibly question authority and to take control of your life!  When I was diagnosed in October of 2012, I was presented with options that made me feel doomed!  My family and I refused to believe there wasn’t a better alternative.  So we boldly left our initial GI specialist and thanks to Dr. Kenneth Cox’s outstanding team at Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital and Stanford Medical Center, I quickly realized that steroids, Humira, and Remicade were NOT my only options!  This team introduced me to SCD and that, combined with less aggressive pharmaceuticals, put me on the road to recovery. Three short months later my lab results were remarkable; my weight gain was miraculous, my health was at it’s peak, and my attitude was at an all time high!

    I have committed my life to SCD and think you should consider doing the same!

Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD):  “Gave me back my life!”

quote of the day

The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.

My goal is to raise $10,000

to help fund the efforts of Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital in making SCD a medically recognized treatment for crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, celiac, diverticulitis, cystic fibrosis, and chronic diarrhea.  It has also been effective in the treatment of autism.
