Looking to get the most out of SCD®?

Hi. I’m Dr. Ali Arjomand

I used the Specific Carbohydrate Diet® (SCD) to successfully reach sustained remission from my long-lasting Crohn’s disease.

As a PhD nutritionist, I help patients identify and implement the best diet routine that meets their individual health and lifestyle goals.

Many of my patients want to know what I did exactly to achieve success. I tell them what worked for me may not work for them.

That’s why we schedule 1-on-1 private sessions to explore and develop a customized routine that meet their needs.

But that holds me back from working with more patients. Many patients don’t have resources to work with me in private sessions.

So what am I doing about it?

  Great news!  


I packed all the SCD content, methods and assessment tools I use with my patients into a




digital protocol to


 start, track, customize and succeed with SCD



optional group support if you need it



  Follow the same protocol I use in my 1-on-1 consulting sessions

What is SCD?


The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) is the most widely studied whole food intervention in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, two common forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

SCD was initially created in 1924 to treat celiac disease. It was later used for the treatment of IBD.

SCD eliminates all grains, most starches, sugar (except honey), dairy products (except butter, 24-hour fermented yogurt and hard cheeses which are essentially lactose free), and most store-bought, processed or prepackaged foods.

So what’s left? Really?

Well, a whole lot of healthy, delicious breakfast items, snacks, baked goods, soups, salads, and a wide variety of lunches and dinners.

You will be surprised at what you’ve been missing. Colors. Taste. Aroma.

Joy comes back. Food becomes a friend and a healer.

The real reward. Relief. Remission. Possibly reversal. A quality life.

Preliminary studies of SCD intervention in pediatric and adult IBD patients have demonstrated promising results, including achieving clinical and mucosal remission and normalization of blood and stool laboratory markers.*

My SCD Protocol is designed to help you succeed on SCD. You don’t have to do this on your own. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel all over again. You don’t have to make mistakes others have already learned from. You can get expert support. You can put your fears to rest knowing you are focusing on the right things. You can track your progress. You can be held accountable.

You can be successful. Faster. More reliably. More confidently. So you can back to enjoying life again.
