In Topic: Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD)

Beverly, as has been stated here before, a clear premise of the SCD diet is that it helps move out parasites and bad bacteria from the intestine as part of the healing process and the whole point of SCD. So we do consider this on topic. Its discussed in BTVC, the book we are basing our diet on.

Liz, it does take some time to adjust! Be kind to yourself. Also cravings for food are very common at first, it seems to be part of the killing of the parasites and bacteria that happens in the introduction of the diet. It does subside. Meanwhile, hopefully others will post ideas. I just didn't restrict honey at first. I needed it to get through this time, and used quite a bit--like in gelatin and in my yogurt. After a week to ten days that all quieted down, and I was no longer starving all the time, could cut back the honey and found the meat and veggies filling.

Bea, its wonderful that you are progressing so well.

The basic cabbage juice recipe I am using is on www.pecanbread.com

3 C cabbage, 1 3/4 C water. The first time let it sit 3 days, no probiotic needed, but you can add some acidophilus if you want. After that, make it fresh everyday and add 1/4 C of the previous juice. 24 hrs from the 2nd batch onward.

Pele, that's great you like the cabbage juice. When I dilute it to drink I like it better, but its okay straight too.

Did you notice improvement from the S. Bourdarii?

I have the brainfog but not the migraines, sounds miserable.

Ali, thanks for the leptin info, its interesting. It makes sense in another way for me in that I bloat more toward the end of the day. I wonder if water input should be shifted as well?

Yolo, I agree with Ali in terms of it coming down to what works for each. My sense is that with your immediate improvement on yogurt you may be able to introduce things more quickly than some of us, at least I am hopeful for you! :)

For me the crux of the matter about stevia is what is the chemical composition and can my very compromised digestive system handle it (while it may be totally fine for someone with a healed gut). I haven't done the research required for myself to consider it. My only additional thought for you to consider is to try going without and then challenging it.

Ali, I agree about listening to what our bodies tell us regarding whether a food is good for us or not. Its hard when the body is sending many conflicting messages though!

For all who are still dealing with bloating:
Has anyone ever tried something like this? http://thyroid.about...id-patients.htm
Its simple and can be homemade easily to be SCD compliant. I'm going to try it over the next couple of days and see if it helps.
