A site for adults and children with IBD/Autism

Children with Autism who are implementing SCD are demonstrating remarkable improvements in bowel function, language, eye contact, self-stimulatory behavior, anxiety, and mood. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, unlike other specialized diets, works by removing the foods that cannot be properly broken down. The vicious cycle of malabsorption, maldigestion, inflammation, and food allergies seen in children with autism can be corrected using this dietary approach and healthy digestion can begin.

The Long Island listserve, originally created by Rachel Turet, is a way to link SCDers together through e-mail. List-members share knowledge and resources with each other, as well as humour and a sense of community. There is a chance that this list serve may stop working due to the list server being sold. Although still active, many of the members have moved to a Yahoo group.

To participate in the Yahoo group, you'll need to create a Yahoo identity and join the group. Then you can edit your membership and have emails sent to you, or read them from the web. The Yahoo group may be accessed at: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/BTVC-SCD/
