There are some top doctors in NYC, who have come around, only upon seeing some really bad cases of patients with Crohn's/Colitis go into remission with the SCD. These patients were assertive and confident with their diet approach, and did the SCD even without the doctor's support. When the doctor witnesses a patient who is sure about himself, and offers studies and research on the diet, he will eventually just let the patient have it their way. As an example - and this it completely off topic - I personally do not vaccinate my children. My pediatricians are not supportive, but let me have it my way, since I give off that "confident, I know what I'm doing" impression. They'll give me a whole report why they think I'm wrong. A number of years ago, my son got a really bad cut with a blade, and lost the tip of his finger. The ambulance took me to my pediatrician, before directing me to the ER. My pediatrician forced me to give my son the tetanus shot. Since I had studied this subject, I knew that my son had no risk of getting the disease, since this was a clean kitchen blade. My pediatrician was furious, and threatened to call the police on me. He felt I was putting my son into danger! I kept my grounds, and just refused it. In the end, he just gave up on me, and let me go to the ER without the vaccine. Just an example that the healing protocol is up to one person only - the patient! Stick up to yourself, be proud of your choice to do diet, and hold your head high!
