So I recently had a slight flare-up of my Crohn's... my first true-to-Crohn's flare-up, so I can no longer trick myself into believing that maybe I was misdiagnosed... as if biopsies lie. Anyway, after spending an evening in the ER on pain meds and starting prednisone again--yuck!! I have decided to do some research so that my having Crohn's doesn't start a pattern of spending my family's already limited funds on a bunch of medical junk for me (a large source of mom guilt). I found a book about a very interesting, though very strict (not my style!!) diet, it is called the selective carbs diet or SCD, and it includes cutting out nearly all carbs--you're onto something Mama Rhondi! :)--and places a lot of importance on making your own probiotic-intensive yogurt and yogurt cheese. I still have to do more research before I decide how well I could follow this diet, and how logical it will be to try while feeding a toddler and breastfeeding an infant, but I think I could at least make parts of it work! At least I am excited to learn to make my own yogurt!!
So... I'm open to any tips I might receive about eating this way, and hopefully I'll buy my book about it soon, so I can continue to be educated about how to be healthy and stay healthy (and off medications!).
