A snapshot of how the course will help you:

Erin says, "After years of answering people's questions and doing consultations, I've realized that sometimes it's hard for people to know what questions to ask when they're getting going on the diet, and difficult for me to discern what people still need to know to find success on the diet. This course is the perfect solution! I'm so happy you'll be getting what you need to succeed and thrive on the SCD®!Start at the beginning or jump in wherever you need to start learning!

Erin has successfully treated her Crohn's disease by consistently following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet® since 2001, and loves the rewarding work of helping people find the SCD. In 2007 she and her Mom, Robin Cox, started Erin has answered hundreds of people's questions about the diet via email, and moved into coaching through email consultations in 2016. She and Robin spoke at the 2018 SCDROCKS conference on Menu Planning and Recipe Development, and Giving / Receiving SCD Support. Grateful to be living a full life of homeschooling her three sons, traveling, and pursuing hobbies, it is her passion to help others find the SCD® so they can live a healthy and happy life!

"I just wanted to say how grateful I am for this thorough, empowering, and organized course. It is a gold mine and evidence of what must be countless hours put in to make this diet doable for all. The videos are perfect for a beginning as well as a veteran cook. The visual art adds so much."

- Christine P.

"Thank you for putting together the No More Crohn's website and your course. I have not seen anything like it in my searches and I appreciate the enormous amount of effort it takes to do such a thing. It's a great accomplishment. Your hard work inspires me to do my best with this. One thing I have learned over the past few years is that the value of supportive people is immeasurable and can make all the difference in succeeding!"

Erin’s Fast-Track to SCD Success is super helpful. The NoMoreCrohn’s site itself is a perfect companion to the Breaking the Vicious Cycle book, but Erin’s course takes the level of help to an entirely new level. The videos she provides walk you step-by-step through what you need to know/do, and the ability to email and ask questions* is a giant pressure relief valve in terms of the stress of managing our disease. I highly recommend Fast-Track to SCD Success. Erin and her mom have put together something very special and helpful for us.

* consultations with Erin are available as a separate course.

"After going through the first few modules, I could not believe such a resource existed!! I learned so much, made some tweaks to my son's diet, emailed Erin for advice*, made more tweaks, and am slowly watching his health return. I even regained the confidence I once had to handle his doctors who still doubt SCD works.

The additional knowledge I gained from this course was invaluable but the confidence I gained was priceless. I felt immediate peace and I knew I could once again use the diet to successfully heal my son. The knowledge I had, along with the additional knowledge I gained from watching the modules, is making the process a whole lot easier and much less stressful this time around! I cannot say enough good about this course and I highly recommend it for anyone who is embarking on an SCD journey. You will not be disappointed!"
