Soil-based Organisms

Soil-based organism are not SCD compliant as their effects have not been
well researched or documented.

I honestly don't know where they get the actual bugs - I just know there are too many strains in these SBO mixtures and Elaine is not comfortable with them. We just have no idea what they do, and a significant number of folks on this list have reported negative reactions to these probiotics.

Non-dairy base, however, does refer to the base the bugs are grown on, not the bugs themselves. It usually means something illegal, like rice powder or garbanzo bean. Seems like a contradiction, but on SCD you actually *want* a dairy base - any lactose will be consumed by the bugs, just like with the 24-hour yoghurt.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
