In Topic: Getting The Intestines Back Into Good Shape

Thanks for the excellent replies, I know number 7 sounds gross but I feel like the way I've been living is even grosser.

That is a good idea about adding what I have done and how it's affected me, I'll compile that and throw it on here. Think I stand a chance of getting better?

I'm somewhat of the opinion that foods in their whole and natural form are the way to go, though I suppose with things like peanut butter and yogurt it's somewhat debatable. I would look into a book called Nourishing Traditions, which has a lot of good recipes and information, but the biggest thing is that you should soak your grains before eating them to eliminate the inhibiting factors that prevent us from absorbing all the nutrients.

That being said, when I was eating non-gluten grains I used a rice cooker to make rice, quinoa and buckwheat. It was phenomenal, doesn't take much longer to cook than pasta and you get good grains that you know have been prepared properly (soaked) because you did it yourself!

Good luck,


In Topic: Any One Hv To Drop Out Of School To Get Better?

11 October 2009 - 11:26 PM

I had to take a quarter off last year and I will again if I have to (knock on wood.) The depression is the worst; feeling crappy made me want to stay in my room all the time. I stopped going to class, then I stopped going to the dining hall, then I stopped leaving my bed...

I'm back in school this year. The hardest part is the social aspect; I wish I had taken a year off before going to college, because leaving in the middle of freshman year makes it so weird with your friends on campus. Luckily mine were all very understanding and I hang out with them this year now that I'm back, but still, it's best to get it sorted out before the term starts so you can enjoy school without interruptions.

But that being said when you're not right you're not right and you have to take as much time as you need to get there.


In Topic: Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD)

Hi all, I'm having a rough time digesting fats and meat broths have been too much for me. I'm wondering if the often mentioned bone broth might be okay? I'm thinking that if it's just boiling bones (not whole slabs of meat or entire chickens) and drinking that with the marrow in it it wouldn't have all the fat content of the broths I previously made from entire pieces of meat. Is that right, or are bone broths made from bones that still have meat on them like ribs and such?

Any help is much appreciated, thanks,


In Topic: Dysbiosis, Leaky Gut And Meat

Thanks for the reply, I don't have any vitamin or mineral deficiencies. I do not eat only fresh meat though, I've never thought about it. Most of it is fresh, though I do eat some sausages with only safe additives (spices, salt/pepper, no nitrates or nitrites, all grass fed meat.)

I do have a tendency to overeat at each meal, I miss the feeling of being full more than anything. I haven't been full in a long time.

I'm on two probiotics: mutaflor and bio-kult. They're both endorsed by the people who're supposed to know these things (my doc and the author of the book Gut and Mind Psychology) so I hope they're good!

I have yet to eat yogurt, I do eat sauerkraut and other fermented veggies. It's very confusing, fiber is supposedly bad if you have more bad bacteria than good, but with less fiber I need more meat which I can't digest! I don't know what to do, so for now I'm just eating more veggies than meats and keeping my fruit intake light and separated from my meals...

Thanks again, I'm having a lot of trouble deciding what's right and what's wrong, but even though I don't feel any better I'm just hoping the SCD is helping anyway.
