An essentiel part of the SCD diet seems to be this homemade yoghurt!
I was just wondering, that since the diet was "invented" so long ago - probably before probiotics, that maybe it is not necessary to bother with the yoghurt?
Isn't it possible to get it via Probiotics instead??

Yes, you can substitute a high quality probiotic for the homemade yogurt; however, the yogurt tastes great and is used in many of the SCD recipes, so if you CAN eat it, you should try. I found I was unable to tolerate it even when made with goats' milk, etc. I have issues with dairy, I guess, so I take Natren's non-dairy Healthy Trinity probiotic supplement.

Well, just trying to understand the diet if I should decide to go for it.
I'm sure I can eat it - it just seems to be pretty "bothersome"/time consuming/complex to make it

The SCD diet is not easy- but ordering from lucy's kitchenshop-an SCD supply store,where I get my almond flour for cooking-makes it much easier

Qvist-yes it is possible to get probiotics without the yogurt-Lucy's Kitchenshop sells the probiotics that are compatible with the diet.

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet is as hard as you make it. Over the years, I've learned to eat pretty simply - mostly lean chicken, turkey, eggs, fish, non-starchy vegetables, etc. It doesn't have to be alot of work. And you don't have to order from Lucy's Kitchen Shop http://www.lucyskitchenshop.com/, although that can be a convenient resource. Another one is http://www.digestivewellness.com/. Most major high quality probiotics are going to be fine for the SCDiet and you can order almond flour from a variety of sources. I use nuttyguys.com. Some health food and organic stores carry it, although I've found it to be extremely expensive there. It's a better deal to order online in bulk.
