Hi CrazyHarry, of course I ment cod liver oil, this is the one we have been drinking in my country for generations. Was a must for all school children in the good old days, and if u choose it, you'll get a lot of vitamines. To be more precise:
Cod liver oil contains so much D-vitamine that if you take 2,5 tbs a day you will get the level of vit D that is said may protect you against a lot of cancer diseases. One tbs is 10 mcg - 2,5 tbs contains app. 1000 International Units, this is the level that the newest science says is the cancer protecting level.
But I don't agree with you about
the taste ....lol, it tastes bad, even if you buy cod liver oil with lemon taste.....but it's absolutely THE BEST .....and guess what, it protects you against vinter colds, it protects the heart, and a lot of other....AND it do reduce the inflammations going on in the intestines.
One more thing, CrazyHarry, are you on any medication now? Your profile says that u use colozal and 6-mp, is that right? Because I can't see any contraindications using some maintenance drug and being on a certain diet. And of course it's important to stay on the drugs also when you starts the diet, only the doctor could tell you when to taper.
That is exact what ppl. in here do when they are brought in remission by ordinary medications or by surgery. To take the responsibility to bring oneself in remission by a diet is great and craves hard work. There is absolutely a extraordinary payback: a better functioning body, also protected for other diseases, not to forget the bonus it is to eat a lot of food that you not was able to eat before, and to make it yourself, how nice isn't that?
I also want to know one more thing: the bread that you make, is it made on almond or nutflour, or is it made on wheatflour, ryflour or and other flours but glutenfree? Because the SCD diet says the first, but I can't make my bread that way, there is no almondflour and so on here, but I have found glutenfree flours and would love to make glutenfree breads.
With all the best from Ingrid
