Hi Keith,I have used the SCD diet, it did help some but I did not have the will power to give up all, I ate the fruit. Giving up the sugar and starches did help tho. I also used honey which they allow after awhile, honey does not help the yeast problem. The thing abut these diets is they are not that easy to stay on. I have been on antibiotics all my life for sinus and ear infections. Up until a couple of years ago that is. I decided only if a matter of life and death.....would I use those moldie, The Scd diet elminates all starches, even potatoes, fruits, and all sweetners accept honey after you been on it and your condition improves..... It also allows home made yogurt. They say if you make it right, it takes all the lactose out. I used it made from 1/2& 1/2 as needed the weight on..... I was tested OK for dairy when I had my allergy test done....I was also tested OK for wheat which I find now I do better without.
It is really so hard to know what helps and what harms.....Yesterday we took my son out for his BD I just could not resist the fudge brownies. Had been so long that I had forgotten what chocolate tasted like. Oh yes I somehow found myself with ice cream (just a little) in front of me. It sure was good for the moment. Woke up this AM with a migraine and now I feel am bloated....... I really do better when I eat at home. I don't buy those tempting things. Anyway here is a website for the SCD diet http://www.inform.dk/djembe/scd
