The Specific Carbohydrate Diet™ is often the cornerstone of our dietary program for IBD patients. This strategy has helped thousands of people with various forms of bowel disease and other ailments, remarkably improve their quality of life. In many cases, patients have considered themselves cured. It is a diet intended mainly for Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, diverticulitis, cystic fibrosis and chronic diarrhea. However, it is a very healthy, balanced and safe diet that can have health benefits for everyone. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet™ limits the consumption of complex carbohydrates, including grains and legumes which can aggravate an already inflamed intestinal condition..
When we recommend the Specific Carbohydrate Diet at Pearl Natural Health, we are aware that it can be a challenge for people to implement and follow. We have an Occupational Therapist on staff who helps patients implement the Specific Carbohydrate Diet in conjunction with a larger treatment plan.
