* Grasses in this instance are not compliant, because we have no idea how well they were sprouted or if the seed coating was included in the product.

** Seeds are allowed on SCD but seed flours are not, and we have no idea what the amount or form of the sesame seeds in this product is.

*** Bifidum and Caseii are not allowed on SCD. Neither are soil-based organisms, as their effects have not been well researched or documented.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
