Ya, certain cheeses are on the diet, but it's always been a contentious point for those who try the diet, because dairy is a classic gut irritant for a lot of people. The issue is the SCD already restricts a lot of what you can eat, and then having to cut out dairy because you may be allergic to that as well just pushes the restrictions to the realm of ridiculous. It also means you'd have to stop taking the homemade yogurt, which is a cornerstone of the SCD plan. I gave up on the SCD, and am glad I did. I at least weigh more now, though I'm not yet fixed.
Interestingly, my worst time are also in the morning Box. I tend to get pure liquid movements, but for some reason things form up later in the day. Not greatly formed, but noticeably so, so at least I feel like I can hold the movement for a bit before I have to rush to the bathroom. I'd have to attribute that to the LDN, because I didn't even have that much just a week or two ago. I'm on day 9 now as it is.
Try John Sullivan in PA. You might have to go out of pocket, but it's still worth it. My doc here charged me $65 for the visit, then overnighting LDN cream from skip's cost about
$100. I don't have insurance, and paid for it all from savings. It still doesn't amount to much relative to normal medication and visit costs. Don' give up til you get some and try it for 60 days. Every last piece of input from all these different people is critical to understanding if this stuff can really work on a widespread basis.
I WISH I had your symptoms haha. There are days when I pull 20+ bathroom trips. I don't even want to think about
permanent damage. I agree with InSoFla, just try the LDN. Given it's virtually side effect free, you literally have nothing to lose. And then of course add your story here so the pot of testimonies grows bigger.
On note to all,
A few days ago there was some discussion on alcohol and LDN on this forum. Well, I did some experimenting last night, and applied my LDN before heading out to a bar an hour and a half later. After having 3 sips of whiskey on the rocks, I immediately felt some bad chemical reactions. I could tell if I kept drinking that whiskey, I was going to be in an awful state of affairs. It hurt my stomach and made me dizzy almost immediately. I stopped and had a friend drink it for me. I love whiskey, and it's never done that before. What I think I will try next is having a drink (just one) an hour or two before I apply the LDN, and see what happens.
