New diet findings

I never thought I would say this, but I’m learning that the GFCFSF diet might not be for us. The reason? It actually might not be enough! Getting rid of gluten, casein, and soy might have just been scratching the surface of the problem this whole time. While those proteins are certainly problematic for Nate, what I’ve been reading and learning lately are showing me that there are many other environmental factors and foods that are most likely aggravating Nate’s gut and therefore his immune system and his brain.

I’m just beginning this new journey but am excited about even more improvements and changes on the horizon if/when we do implement these changes. Here’s the book I’m reading: Gut and Psychology Syndrome.

    Oh my gosh Katie, I am reading that too! Let’s discuss. How weird that we both have been thinking about this.

      Jodie–no way! Yes, we must discuss! I’m about halfway through the book right now.

    Did you end up doing GAPS? My son is GFCF for a year and he struggles with yeast and leaky gut. I was going to start him on SCD for yeast but then I heard about GAPS for leaky gut. I started reading the site, it promotes fermented foods and eggs amongst other things he can’t have. I wonder if I just modified it if it would be better than SCD for him. Then I also heard about enhanced SCD, but haven’t had the time to look into it yet. If you did GAPS, I would love to hear a testimonial!
