I think it’s important to learn what foods are triggers for you. I can’t consume caffeine, beans, apples and as a result of narrowing at my surgery site…mushrooms. (Just a few examples) I also have had success with the SCD diet after I was told my only hope after no serious issues in years was Entyvio. (I know it’s great for some, but I feel at the time it’s not a path I’m willing to take).
The Specific Carbohydrate Diet is restrictive, but if it keeps me out of the hospital, I’ll do it! Everyone’s experience with SCD is different but I’m grateful it’s worked for me so far.
