Hey guys my name is Tyler I’m 21. I was diagnosed with mild/moderate case of colitis November 2010 witch landed me in the hospital for a couple weeks. The docs treated me with a high does of interventions steroid, antibiotic and asacol and we got it under control and was back on my feet taking only asacol as maintenance. In may I flared again and i’m still currently coming out of a 2 month of this flaire and i started the SCD about a month ago and i’m currently on it 100 percent now. Its hard to say If it is brought me out of my flair or not because im on 40mg of prednisone and 20 mg of cortisone suppositories twice a day and down to using the bathroom 3 times a day now with little mucus but no blood. Pretty sure i’m on my way to being into remission now.
Anyways that’s a intro about me i have a few questions regarding the SCD now. I just ordered a yogurt maker, do you all think it would be too soon to start the yogurt? Ive already started taking the sddophilus for a couple days now. I just got my yogurt maker in the mail kinda excited to try it lol. Also any serious gym goers on this site and follow the SCD? Im really into working out and am somewhat concerned about putting weight on without complex carbohydrates which usually play a pretty big role in bodybuilding.
