DEMULCENTS

Demulcents

From Merriam-Webster:
Main Entry: demulcent
Function: noun
Date: 1732
a usually mucilaginous or oily substance (as tragacanth) that can soothe or protect an abraded mucous membrane.

t writes:
Demulcents work by coating the digestive tract, thereby cutting down on absorption and increasing the amount of nutrients available to bacterial overgrowth. Further, if the demulcent is a mucilaginous polysaccharide, it is a ready source of food for bad bacteria, and is SCD illegal. Some demulcents also have contain compounds that act as immune boosters - not what you want when you are trying to reduce inflammation and reactions that are part of an immune response.

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.
