I think that's a little backwards.
Cow's milk dairy was never meant for humans and causes many problems that Dr's don't realize. it was all those DRINK YOUR MILK ads!! LOL
UC just gives you a condition which makes it harder to digest something we weren't meant to digest in the first place. Why do you think they don't give babies MILK? Because they systems are sensitive and do not have the ability to digest all that lactose! So just think of it as, having UC, you now have a babies guts....and need to be very gentle with it until it heals itself.
The SCD diet is what helps 1,000's do just that. You start from square one and add one food at a time so you know which things you have issues with. Since we are all different, you have to journal these items yourself. But grains, dairy, starches and sugars are the hardest things for you to digest , so we just stay away from them on this diet until we feel better.
it worked for my son in less than 7 days, off prednisone after about 2 months. he's 18 and doing great, attending college and no symptoms at all except for occasionaly mushy stool if he eats to much of something on the diet, like peanut butter.
Hope that helps.
It's interesting to think of it as having a baby's stomach, I never really thought of it that way. If I had a kid I certainly wouldn't be feeding it hot wings or anything so I suppose it makes sense.
I personally have no interest in trying the SCDiet though, even though some have success with it. It cuts too much out of my diet that I enjoy eating, even if some of it hurts me sometimes. It's just not worth it to me to be honest *shrug*
