When my CD was diagnosed I was literally living on boiled rice and peas for 18 months. Now the question remains -- how could this be? I did and have been doing extensive research on how to wean off the medication and journaling foods. I lost weight and I am now at a healthy weight for my size.
Was also taking some of the supplements that Jordan and Steve recommend. Last summer I was frustrated with western medicine and I went to a holistic nutritionist who told me about SCD. Never in a million years did I think I would ever say that -- neither did my family!
Because it just seemed too complicated from Breaking the Vicious Cycle itself. I also do not call this a diet, it is a way of life. That, for me, was really, really helpful. The nutritionist told me about SCD. I used to only believe that you take the medicine the doctor gave you and that there were no other options.
I have been on SCD for almost 4. I also did major changes in my lifestyle, change my job to minimize stress etc.
And it stopped after starting SCD within five days. I read your blogs, followed your phasing charts, eliminated the 4 Horsemen, and started on multivitamins from GI ProHealth.
And my feet went haywire before I started having the GI symptoms. It is very overwhelming in the beginning and I even like to cook. Unfortunately, doctors themselves do not know enough about the diet and even the best, which hers is, are not quiet sure how to go about this.
Started looking for something else And the best they can figure is that the inflammation in my body kind of went to that weak point in my feet.
Within a week or so I was down to maybe going three or four times a day. About six months ago we asked for Marisa to be taken off all medications. She even said I was a mild case so I asked why all the drugs. I feel like I am part of the group secret too.
I refused her treatment plan and walked out of her office knowing that there had to be a better way. I remember those results -- many polyps, ulcers, inflammation - diseased. But, I mean, live and learn. Maybe it was the confirmation you needed to let you know to go on.
All of these experiences have helped me to feel connected and supported. Her GI doctor works out of a research hospital and conferred with the other doctors on staff and gave us the green light.
So I kind of went about that backwards as well as the dairy and the eggs. She said she even called the surgeon the one who treated her with the appendix to confirm the CT scan results and confired with the radiologist who read the results to make sure the CT scan was correct. Finding SCD Lifestyle allowed me to feel comfortable starting the diet.
My sonfar from the three year old I was told to expect as a life-long prospect, is now a highly educated chap with an excellent career ahead of him. I was just in denial.
Is the diet working? Not this time -- clear, pink, beautiful. Your responses to my many email questions have been a blessing. So it just seemed like too much for me. I was already doing what I believed were "good food habits. It has not been an easy journey even though my symptoms seem mild when compared to others succeeding on SCD.
I listen to the SCD Lifestyle podcasts on my way to work or in the grocery store and I sometimes check the blog entries or facebook page. I do believe too that this site is not only about the diet but the community and support around it.Get expert tips, free printables and fun activities for your child’s learning journey.
