mom2girls- So happy you are trying LDN! I am having wonderful success with it. I've seen improvement at about 2 weeks, then gradual improvement thereafter.
I stuck to the SCD diet modified a bit to add rice and also I needed to get back on mesalamine enamas to help get the inflammation down and I added psyllium seek powder....now it has been 7 weeks and I have formed stools about 1 to 3 x's a day. No blood , no mucus...I think I'm reaching remission... I'm starting to add wheat bread, and yogurt to my diet and no problems! I think it's actually helping in my stool formation. However, I still eat very healthy, lots of veggies, fish, chicken...I'm not quiet ready for red meat yet...but don't miss it too much, lol.
Hallelujah! A first in 8 years! wow! On a quest to help others!
Keep us posted on your progress! remember to give it time!
