SUPPLEMENTS

Supplements

When many people come to the SCD they are often already taking a number of supplements and ask whether they are legal on SCD. We are therefore very grateful to Catherine Tamaro who has compiled the following list of supplement additives. I cannot comment on individual brands of supplement yet because the manufacturers are not telling us everything about the additives in their supplements. Supplements should be kept to a minimum but I recognize that because of mal-absorption issues when people begin the SCD that they may be necessary. Once healing has progressed, the aim should be to minimize some supplements. See pages 46 to 49 of my book Breaking the Vicious Cycle.

The book should be required reading for anyone with Crohn's disease and we wish gastroenterologists would read it as well. The diet is a real alternative to the drug based therapy from the medical community.
