Hi I am Helen (41y). Diagnosed 3 years ago. Recent colonoscopy in may 2016. I was very ill and 4 months I ate only (and I mean only chicken broth – without chicken). I lost 38kg. After that I started to looking for help and find SCD.
Some more about Helen:
I am very open minded. I look for way find out and I try to help others. But I need more knowledge and guiding. Also I want to be vegan (after healing).
Yes I have UC. Diarrhea, very low hemoglobine 78 – 83 (I do not take iron as SCD suggested), high inflammation , exacerbations- cause tiredness, some pain in stomach.
Correct SCD Diet
I cook all the time (which I like) but I am getting too often ill.. I do make something wrong.
So please help me from begging to make things correctly, aright.
Suspecting: that I cant tolerate cheese, butter (yogurt??), coconut milk, honey?, almond flour and also how to add some new cooked vegetables, fruits to menu. Haven’t eaten fresh fruits, vegetables more than 2 years..
NO ILLEGAL FOOD for 1 years 100%.
Yesterday I ate cheese, and some butter.. and today very ill. Also I am not sure that I tolerate banana (with the brown spots) and avocado?
If I eat cooked fruits (apple – total diarrhea) and cooked vegetables – I do have diarrhea also.. I make something wrong.
The doctor not support. Family accept SCD diet. Concerned most HOW to make it work and make correctly SCD diet.
Unfortunately we do not have here in Estonia (very small country) SCd group or any information so I started on my own . I were so week that I couldn’t translate a book. And this were mistake because I spend on intro diet months. (I bettered – but after 4 month still did had diarrhea, inflammation, low hemoglobin and etc). I founded Lucy Kitchenshop and get from her help. Thanks.
But now – I need more help, more advices, suggestions and etc. I do not have any problems with missing “food” which is illegal, I have been eaten SCD food for 1 year now but still have diarrhea, high inflammation and etc. I think that I do not tolerate milk products – butter, cheeses, about yogurt I am not sure.
SO I ASK from all of you help, guiding how to make SCD correctly for getting results. ALSO if here is vegans – please share the menu, advice and etc.
Prednisolone (for inflammation write now 16mg), pentasa 2mg – 4mg per day, asacol supp.
Only tried SCD but not correctly. Looking for help. Any help, good word, advice and etc.
I translated all the book Breaking the vicious cycle. No I have more information.
