About the Author

Raman Prasad was first diagnosed with ulcerative colitis at the age of seventeen. His health steadily deteriorated in the years that followed, resulting in several hospital stays and various health complications. It was during this time that he came across Elaine Gottschall's book, Breaking the Vicious Cycle, which outlined the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and the science behind it for putting inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), celiac disease, and diverticulitis in remission. Raman has followed the SCD successfully for more than ten years, which has resulted in a happy return to good health and a normal life. Inspired by his recovery, he established www.scdrecipe.com in 1998, which includes over 500 SCD recipes and other relevant information about the diet. Prasad is also the author of the self-published memoir Colitis & Me: A Story of Recovery and the SCD cookbook Adventures in the Family Kitchen, which combines traditional Italian-American and Indian family recipes.
