Help me, wise experienced SCD Mamas.
I am now almost 2 weeks on SCD. After giving up my last illegals (coffee and water kefir) a few days into it, I got massively constipated, which has yet to subside. Basically it has been almost a week w/o a "normal" stool. I have added in a few foods (cooked apples and pears, asparagus, avocado, banana, cooked strawberries, cooked carrots, green beans, spinach --although not all of them agreed with me), but I really feel like I am on a protein diet, to the exclusion of most everything else. I have had an awful taste in my mouth for a while (since starting) and now my nursling also has awful breath since last night.
I am taking Zyme Prime with meals and Wobenzyme in between. I have ordered Pepizyde and No Fenol, although I am still waiting on them. Oh, and I started eating cooked prunes in the evening to see if that would help. I did try orange juice one morning, but it didn't make me feel great.
I pulled out the book again today to see if I could find more information about how to proceed. I read that the marker to continue with more and different foods is diarreha, and that raw fruits and veggies can have a laxative effect, therefore they need to be cooked. So what about someone like me, who pretty much never has loose stool? I did add a few black currants that I have from my garden to my yogurt today, just to see how that would go.
I am despairing a bit.
