Elaine on YouTube

I am grateful to many people in my life. My family, friends and the doctors that saved my life to name a few. But when I think of Elaine Gottschall and what she has done for me, I can’t help but become a little choked up. I wish that I had had the opportunity to meet her and express my gratitude. She is an icon to me.

Here is an interview of Elaine in three parts on scddiet23’s channel:

An interesting statistic on part 2 video starting at around 3:15:  In six years Elaine consulted on 400 cases of Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, celiac, spastic colon, IBS, and found that the diet was working almost 95% of the time for small intestine Crohn’s, turning it around within 4 weeks. With ulcerative colitis the turnaround rate was 75% . Diverticulitis the easiest to turn around.

Here’s another video in two parts on Jenny McCarthy’s channel. It’s part interview, part memorial and part lecture by Elaine herself.

    Thank you so much Paul. Elaine was such an inspiring woman and continues to inspire in so many ways. How wonderful to hear her say “If I died tomorrow, I would die happy because……” she had written her chapter on the Brain Connection in Breaking The Vicious Cycle.

    A Happy and Healthy 2011 to you Paul and to all SCDers as we travel along this difficult but life-changing path.

    Thanks for posting these! While I don’t have time to watch all of them now, I know where to come to catch them later. 🙂

    While I know the SCD lifestyle has healed many, and my experiments with it have improved my health, too, those stats you cite are truly impressive. I know many people who struggle with the digestive issues you mention who still suffer because they are not yet ready to face the change that it takes to heal and have a better quality of life. I hope, though, that as many turn to attending to what and how they eat, others will see and understand the difference it makes.

    Thanks for your work in sharing information on SCD and helping to improve my life, too.

    Happy 2011!

      I’m glad to share my finds.

      You’re right, change can be difficult and it’s become clear to me that a person needs to be sufficiently motivated to accomplish the SCD.

      Thank you for your encouraging words. I appreciate it.
