FLAX SEED AND FLAX SEED OIL -

Flax seed and Flax seed oil -

Flax seed is illegal.    

From Elaine: "lignin is found when the whole seed (and its stiff coat) are ground up. I think it is harmful for people just starting out on SCD.  I think some bacteria feast nicely on lignin - it is tough like bark."

Flax seed oil is legal.     

From Elaine: "The oil itself, in very small amounts, (and one will have to reduce the prescribed dose by at least 50%) may be helpful." On SCD, without the groundup almonds, I would highly doubt if one would need a supplement of these oils.  The huge amount of supplements being pushed are questionable as to the fact that they may be doing as much harm as possible good.

I was introduced to this diet 7 years ago. Began the diet with my physicians knowledge and was able to go prescription drug free within a year. The diet really works and the book not only gives the how to and recipes, it gives the scientific information to back up the evidence. I highly recommend this book/guide to all that suffer from intestinal disorders.
