YOGHURT - WHY SCD YOGURT IS SO IMPORTANT
Yoghurt - Why SCD Yogurt is so important
Introducing yoghurt to your diet.
Many find huge improvement to their condition when they start taking the yoghurt, others can have problems at first. After the starter diet has been completed the yoghurt can be tried by introducing it very slowly. Try a teaspoon the first day and watch for any reaction, if all is well, try two the second day, gradually increase it each day. If you have a reaction to it then there may not have been enough healing yet and it may be best to leave it for now and try again later. Or you could try goats 24 hr SCD™ yoghurt which has wonderful success with autistic children and is the recommended yoghurt for them. Goats milk is much more delicate than cows milk and it has a different type of casein in it. Therefore people sensitive to cows milk casein might not be sensitive to goats milk casein.
If despite trying 24 hr SCD™ goats yoghurt you are still sensitive to it then it should be excluded from your diet until more healing has occurred. Try it again after a month or two of being on the SCD™.
Before starting the SCD™ many people believed that they couldn't tolerate yoghurt but after some SCD™ healing they find that the 24hr SCD™ yoghurt helps them greatly
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.
