Articles on this page serve to remind us that our medical, pharmaceutical, and food industries are no longer acting in our best interest. The only way to regain/maintain good health is to maximize digestion and elimination by consuming a balanced, whole, natural foods diet . . . and, of course, ORGANIC is always the best.

The SCD is such a plan.
