* Grasses in this instance are not compliant, because we have no idea how well they were sprouted or if the seed coating was included in the product.

** Seeds are allowed on SCD but seed flours are not, and we have no idea what the amount or form of the sesame seeds in this product is.

*** Bifidum and Caseii are not allowed on SCD. Neither are soil-based organisms, as their effects have not been well researched or documented.

This single book has been more informative than any doctor I've spoken with. The opening chapters outline underlying causes for these various illnesses and go into great detail. This gave me the tools to better approach my doctors and explain what was going on to family members.
