Honey is used in like 90% of the recipes in the book. I have it in front of me because I wanted to read what the hype was about. Honey is her staple food. It is one of the, if not the main ingredient in the diet.It's allowed on SCD but I think it's a small part. I don't think SCD followers eat too much honey or should. I could be wrong.
This is much too simplistic, and the SCD misses the ball completely on what actually happens.Kmoose sugar and starch feeds bacteria and if our gut has a lot of bad bacteria (one crohns theory) than we don't want to feed it.
No I'm not because if anyone followed any posts I made I said I tried the SCD diet and it did nothing, but I always said that I didn't know if it might work or not work for others.Hey Kiny, have you tried any diets, and how did it go?
Are you dumping on them because they didn't work?
Sure you canYou can not avoid such a huge food group as complex carbs completely.
After antibiotic and probiotic therapy I can eat whatever I want. I've been in remission for two months now. I was sad to see that honey could potentially adversely affect crohns sufferers but dietary changes during a flare had minimal results for me. I do believe that crohns has a bacterial component and that bacteria feed off sugar so they could theoretically feed off honey, but I've also read that honey is antibacterial.A biologist commented on the diet once and he said why bother. If you wan the effect of the diet all it would take is a week of antibiotics and probiotics and you would do what would take the SCD diet years to do.
TNF (alpha if you want) is a prime defense mechanism of the immune system, it's a cytokine release by macrophages, depending on if the macrophage is empty or not and depending on the pathogen, the release can be low or extremely high.Hi guys! Sorry could not find what is TNF stand for?
This is what I'm looking into right now (oxidative stress and stuff associated with that). Have you ever wondered why so many with Crohn's have trouble with lettuce?Also, there's arguments about which is the main contributer to tissue damage, is it actually the immune response or is it related to oxidative stress (ROS) , which can be worse if TNF levels are higher and vice versa.
