Thanks Harry for sharing with us your success re Makers. Your success provides an inspriation for others (like me!).
I read makers but am going the SCD route although out of Makers 1) I am using Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon a lot. 2) I use strong stocks for the basis of virtually everything I eat, 3) trying to go organic on most stuff (that I can afford) 4) stopped Pork and shell fish 5) getting probiotics from SCD yogurt 6) made lactose fermented veg and probably a few other things. For me a bunch of things in Makers made sense, but for me it seemed like SCD might work even better. So I SCD with a lot of Makers influence.
I 100% agree that putting garbage in our systems can not be best for anyone and for sure not for folks with a chronic illness. I do not understand how folks still eat garbage when at worst it will give better nutrition to an impaired gut and at best might take all the symptons away.
I still have symptons but on my good days I feel great. I have my fingers crossed that I am doing the right things to get more and more good days
