People who have yeast and are trying to get rid of it shouldn't do anything like that kind of diet. I think the reason why SCD works for alot of people is because they have yeast they don't know about and are starving it.
I don't do the SCD diet, but it's somewhat like it minus more yeast/mold based foods. I do this because I did a lab test and it shows I have dividing yeast.
Things work for some as they do others. You are pretty out of context when you call people SCD bible thumpers because you don't agree it with.
Also, for as long as I've known you, you've always said you've been in remission. That's more than a year I've been seeing you on various forums. So, there it is again. You're telling people what they should try or do with random ideas you have when you yourself aren't going through what they are, but have gone through it before.
People in remission trying something and having fun with it, doesn't mean people in a flare or active disease should try it based off your recommendation.
My 2 cents..
So where's my public apology you owe me? If you want to comment on my postings have the decency to apologize like you said you would. I'm waiting...
I still take my phosphatidylcholine enemas as needed. Nothing has changed at all. My goal is to get my asacol down to 800 mg per day. I'm almost there with all the things I do. Of course I'm in remission. As you clearly missed in my above post I recommend SLOWLY adding beans and resistant starches to the diet. I had a ton of gas when I was in a full blown flare. What is it to add just a tiny amount of inulin and beans and resistant starch to the diet and build slowly, slowly up from that? Name another way to add butyrate to the diet without doing enemas with it? you can't. You MUST use resistant starches period end of story. Butyrate should be your preferred fuel source for the colon, NOT glucose or fructose like the SCD. The colon use and needs butyrate first. It also needs antioxidants in abundance because of all the oxidation going on. It also needs the mucus barrier to be of a specific viscosity to keep the irritants and bacteria from breaching into the colon wall iteself. You also need to learn about
how to prevent colon cancer through food. Beans do all of this. Most of the recommended food in the scd diet miss all this. Could you be following a diet that increases your risk of colon cancer? One that ignores butyrate, antioxidants, and lipids could I think. Her diet is incomplete and wrong and needs a revision in my opinion.
You cling onto yeast as the end all be all of causes for IBD symptoms. You will NEVER EVER be able to EVER avoid yeast period. There is no point in trying a diet that is devoid of yeast. Yeast extracts I avoid in my food as they are immune stimulating, yet yeast is all over us and our food and there is no way to clean it off or avoid it. You cannot sterilize your food of yeast. You wouldn't feel the effects of yeast if you had a proper mucus barrier in your colon. Yeast are opportunistic and frequently give aids patients thrush and people with cancer get thrush also. Yet almost none of them spontaneously develop IBD. Do yourself a favor and drop the yeast connection. It's a dead end. It's mainly hyped by people pushing supplements.
People in a flare or active disease should try every so slowly to add resistant starches to their diet. You mistaken the assumption that people should start consuming 50 grams of fiber a day right off the bat. Wrong. Start out with mabye 2-4 grams. Then as pain and symptoms permit slowly increase this over the weeks and months till you can get up to 40 - 50 grams. Butyrate not glucose should be your road to remission. Avoiding resistant starches in the colon sets up a lack of butyrate and that can lead to colon cancer. No one here needs that increased more than they already have. Butyrate producing foods in your diet decreases many inflammatory molecules. No one with mad gas will notice a bit more gas from some tiny amounts of bean fiber.
I was getting my butyrate from psyllium husk and inulin before. Bean fiber is a much better choice.
