Approximately 1.6 million Americans are afflicted with ulcerative colitis or crohn’s disease. These are autoimmune diseases that cause a host of digestive and health problems including
- bloody diarrhea several times a day
- abdominal cramps
- malabsorption and malnutrition
- extreme fatigue and weight loss
As many as 70,000 new cases of irritable bowel diseases (IBD) like crohn’s and colitis are diagnosed in the United States each year.
The numbers for those afflicted with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is much, much more. IBS isn’t as serious as IBD, but it can still greatly compromise the lives of those who suffer with it.
Along with IBS and IBD, celiac disease is on the rise. The number of celiac patients is increasing every single year.
If you suffer from one of these conditions, this site is for you.
Maybe you have already gone paleo yet you’re still experiencing problems.
Maybe you’ve tried medications and they didn’t work.
Or maybe you just want to take the natural route to healing your leaky gut.
There is a diet called the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) that can help. SCD is specifically made for those with UC, Crohn’s, IBS, IBD , celiac disease and other gut conditions.
SCD is the foundation of recovering from gut problems.
Sometimes though, you need extra help. That’s where Functional Nutrition, comes in.
