SCD Web Library - for the Specific Carbohydrate 
Diet, Online Support Groups and Mailing Lists

The basic principle of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet is: never eat something that your intestines cannot digest. There are specific carbohydrates which are trouble makers in the digestive system, especially those suffering Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

The SCD Web Library was founded in 1996 and is an edited, purposeful compilation of listserve communications of over 650 people that are getting real results from dietary adjustments.
