Founder and webmaster: Mik Aidt       

Mik discovered Elaine Gottshall's book "Breaking The Vicious Cycle" about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet in the summer of 1996, at the website of John Chalmers. At this time, he was very sick with Colitis, heavily drugged with Cortisone and unable to work.

The SCD changed his life. He hasn't touched any medicine since August 1, 1996, and since the symptoms disappeared during the following half year, he hasn't had any serious relapses since. In Denmark, Mik's promotion of the book has led to that "Breaking The Vicious Cycle" now also exists in a Danish translation, and even has a Danish follow-up, entitled "Continue The Good Cycle".

Until 2002, Mik worked for the Danish Broadcasting Corporation as a music editor. He now runs his own tv production company, Mild Prodcuctions. He also does personal coaching.

Mik's hobbies and interests include: world music - especially African music, radio, publishing, writing music, relaxing on the beach with his laptop, and travel.

Co-webmaster: Mike Simons       

After reading Elaine Gottschall's book, Mike found Mik's wonderful site back in late 1996. On January 1st, 1997, Mike started the SCD. Since then he has successfully maintained a completely prescription-free remision of Crohn's disease, and has experienced no significant flares. In response to many inquiries about how he maintains his remission and what he eats on the SCD, Mike maintains an SCD Food Log.

According to Mike, "Elaine Gottschall's book is to IBD what Rachel Carson's Silent Spring is to the environmental awareness movement."

Mike lives in Tucson, Arizona and is a sales manager at Linktivity. His hobbies include: cooking, hiking, tennis, reading, and clicking on things with his mouse.
