Of all dietary components, carbohydrates have the greatest influence on intestinal microbes yeast and bacteria which are believed to be involved in intestinal disorders.

Most intestinal microbes require carbohydrates for energy. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet works by severely limiting the availability of carbohydrates to intestinal microbes. When carbohydrates are not digested, they are not absorbed. They remain in the intestinal tract, thus encouraging microbes to multiply by providing food for them.

This can lead to the formation of acids and toxins which can injure the small intestine. Once bacteria multiply within the small intestine, they can destroy the enzymes on the intestinal cell surface, preventing carbohydrate digestion and absorption.

At this point, production of excessive mucus may be triggered as the intestinal tract attempts to "lubricate" itself against the irritation caused by the toxins, acids, and the presence of incompletely digested and unabsorbed carbohydrates.

The diet is based on the principle that specifically selected carbohydrates, requiring minimal digestion, are well absorbed leaving virtually nothing for intestinal microbes to feed on.

As the microbes decrease due to lack of food, their harmful by-products also diminish. No longer needing protection, the mucus producing cells stop producing excessive mucus and carbohydrate digestion is improved. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet corrects malabsorption, allowing nutrients to enter the bloodstream and be made available to the cells of the body, thereby strengthening the immune system's ability to fight. Further debilitation is prevented, weight can return to normal, and ultimately there is a return to health.

Breaking the Vicious Cycle , written by biochemist and cell biologist, Elaine Gottschall, is an extraordinary book and one of the first to address this problem with a practical approach for the general public as well as for the health professional.

Many diseases can be prevented, alleviated, or cured by nothing more than the correct diet. In writing Breaking the Vicious Cycle , Elaine Gottschall wanted to share what she has learned in the three decades since her four-year-old daughter was diagnosed as having severe, incurable ulcerative colitis. The book is a result of her uncharted odyssey to keep her child alive and stave off an ileostomy surgical removal of the colon and replacement with an external bag.

Breaking the Vicious Cycle is divided into two sections. The first half explains how different carbohydrates starches and sugars affect the body, and how diet affects behavior and development. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet is introduced with an explanation of how it can prevent, alleviate, and cure gastrointestinal disorders.

The second part of the book contains recipes for appetizers, soups, salads, meats, desserts, beverages, and candies which are allowed on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. The book ends with an excellent glossary, a detailed appendix, an index, and is highly referenced for those who wish to read prime source material. Related Searches.

Breaking the Vicious Cycle

Based on the earlier work of Sidney V. And central to all these complaints is the likely possibility that the microbial balance in the gut is off and that improperly digested carbohydrates -— sugars and starches -— remain in the intestinal tract and contribute to an overgrowth of problematical yeasts and bacteria. When these organisms take hold for whatever reason, a cycle of events ensues:. The specific carbohydrate diet breaks the cycle by depriving the microbial world in the intestine of the food that it needs to overpopulate the gut. Disease process in the gut relates to putrefaction bacterial activity on protein and fermentation microbial activity on carbohydrates.
