Everyday That I'm Alive is a Gift
Hi, I've been following this thread for quite a while and it helped me finally start the SCD Diet. I can't say enough about this diet, I have been on it since July of 09. It's not fun at all, but it is so worth it! The gluten-free diet never did the trick and after 7 days on this diet I was feeling like a normal person for once... I just got the courage to finally sign up to tell everyone that this diet is the one thing that finally allowed me to live a "normal" life and have some decent digestion and health. So I wanted to pass along a couple resources I used to get started last summer (because I know it is tough after reading BTVC... it's sorta confusing). pecanbread.com is a great resource that helped me answer many questions about the diet, they have been around forever and are more geared towards parents of autistic children, but either way the information is the same. scdlifestyle.com is a newer community that has a blog and if you look on the sidebar you can download a free chapter from their book on how to start the SCD diet in 24 hours, which is awesome for helping you get started right away. Seems like they have some decent stuff and know what there talking about. Guy has Celiac too! scddiet.org has some awesome recipes for when you are further down the road on the diet, plus it's a great resource to find some specialty items that are local to your area. Anyways, I hope this helps someone finally start feeling better like I did. If you have any questions about the diet or anything send me a message or post on this thread, I will be glad to help if I can. Good luck!
