  1. It could also be due to other food intolerances, fx dairy, soy, night shades or others - or perhaps chemical additives; many people have gluten like reactions to some of these. So if this might be likely for you, try to think of what you...
  2. Yes, I generally also use the blender rather than the juicer, partly because it's easier, and partly as you say, because of the pulp that I like to have in the juice. I've always managed with rather cheap blenders, and so far none broke...
  3. Whereas I make other vegetables sauteed or steamed, I tend to eat most leafy greens raw, and without any dressing, maybe max a bit of olive oil and lemon. Feel that I get the most benefits from them that way. But like it has been suggested...
  4. Hi Ali, Yes, I also think in some ways the total break down of my system has turned out to be a blessing, because at least I was forced to figure out what was wrong with me, and not just to keep on struggling and juggling health issues...
  5. Hi Bea, Thanks. Good idea to just stay with the flax seeds initially. Even though they aren't SCD-legal, I think I might try them and see how I react. And thanks for the info on nattokinase. Will wait a bit with it since I'm wary...
  6. Hi Bea, Now, I'm jumping in here as well. Think your approach of 'back to basics' makes a lot of sense. The SCD worked for me - and I don't think I could have improved as much as I have, without being totally committed to it. But hat...
  7. Hi Bea, Yes, it sounds like something else/more than candida is going on if you can't even have grape fruit. don't know too much about fructose intolerance, except that it's pretty serious for those who have it with potential organ side...
  8. Hi Michelle, Thanks! Yes, grape fruit was my main fruit the first many months. I'd either peel it and eat it as an orange, or more often, blend it with water for a pulpy and very fresh juice. Sometimes I'd add cucumber or other greens...
  9. Just read up a bit further back, and - Michelle, as to an SCD-legal olive leaf extract, I'm not sure. But personally, I'm taking the Vitamin Shoppe's liquid one, and though I'm so hypersensitive to everything, this one agrees perfectly...
  10. Hi Woolygimp, Whether the SCD will work for you or not, is difficult to gauge. I guess the reason you're looking into it is that other diets/eliminations are not working sufficiently, and in that case probably you could be helped by the...

    B12 Supplement vs ADHD Medication?

    For kids (adults) with ADD/ADHD it might be worth also checking out the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), which was specifically created for autistic children. Here are some links: http://www.pecanbread.com/new/aboutscd.html http...
  12. Hi there, What a sad - and wrong! - thing to conclude that the discussion of other potential ways of helping the healing process must mean that the SCD isn't working in and of itself. I haven't posted much lately, but that is exactly...
  13. Not wanting to second guess your doctors, but it just might be more complex than what the diagnosis make it sound like. So keep it up for a couple of months at least, and then see. My own experience was that when after 5 years of debilitating...
  14. Hi Jesse, Just take it one step at a time. It seems daunting at first, but soon it becomes a habit and second nature just like brushing your teeth and contact lenses etc ... I've done the SCD for 7.5 months now with very good results...
  15. Michelle, I did find the illegal ingredients listed - but often in not very visible places (like one bottle of multivitamins seemed to have all ingredients listed on the outside, and stated gluten, yeast free etc - then on the back of the...
