I have been worried about this, especially after I realized that we could handle rye but not spelt on this elim diet. I just started buying this sourdough rye that is made where we live during this diet, but used spelt as my main baking grain all through this pregnancy. I am so afraid to go ahead and think rye is ok, and eat it regularly, because won't we just end up reacting to that. And rice so often...seems like that could lead to a reaction.
On the other hand, it did seem like we needed to find our triggers before we start SCD, and we are doing enzymes, reuteri, kefir, and I need to find a another baby dairy free probiotic for dd, and one with other buggies for me. I hope this starts the healing so that we don't start reacting to the things we are eating now.
Speaking of the reuteri, from the limited time I have to get on and do my research, I understand that we get this strain from breastfeeding. So...I am wondering if I was never breastfed, does that mean I don't have it in my gut, and therefore my kiddos don't either?
