About Ben


Hi, I'm Ben and I have Crohn's Disease.

When I was 15, I started to experience the scary symptoms of Crohn's disease. It took months until I was finally diagnosed, and I feared its effects would devastate my life. While certainly a challenge, I found solace in a diverse and creative diet called the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to help naturally heal my GI tract. I am also taking medicines, but personally I feel that both diet and medicine are helping me. On this site, I share some of my favorite SCD recipes and bits of inspiration to hopefully be a helping hand in your fight against IBD.

I hope this blog helps you live a more happy, enjoyable, and normal lifestyle with your IBD. Feel free to leave a comment or connect with me at benketchum@comcast.net
