PV - we had luck with SCD, though minus egg and dairy (DD couldn't tolerate any amount of these). After a month, she was way better (as was I, though I never thought I had problems to start with), but the first 2 weeks were way bad (brain fog, emotional basketcase, etc from die-off). However, after a few months we hit a hard place, which I later figured out was because I was overdoing the high amine/salicylate foods (most especially coconut, honey, almonds, cinnamon). To answer some of your earlier posts, I don't think it is possible to do a complete FAILSAFE and SCD diet for a long period of time- I don't think you could get enough nutrients. But you probably could do SCD and avoid the foods in the "high" catagories.
If I were starting over again knowing what I know now, I might just avoid foods I knew were bad triggers, do a rotation diet for everything else (check out the ones JaneS posted in the sticky) and dive heavy into the enzymes world. I'm just now really getting into enzymes (I dabbled before, but now I'm focused), and I'm really optimistic that this is a better answer than just avoiding everything. I'd really recommend you get DeFelice's book (the one titled something like Digestive Wealth).
Alternatively, if you go the SCD route, I'd recommend doing the intro diet for about a week and keeping a copius food log of EVERYTHING you put in either mouth (I think mine is now something like 100 pages typed) and every reaction.
Also - I think it was you who asked about allergy testing. I went this route with the blood RAST test, and it showed nothing (and I had put soooo much hope that it would give me answers). I think I needed to do it to get the doubt out of my mind, though. And in a weird way, it made me more determined to try to figure this stuff out. We are making good progress, including weight gain and virtually no digestive or eczema symptoms, but we just can't get this little girl to grow taller! She is still at 26 inches at 10 months . . .
I haven't even begun to look at digestive enzymes really because I am totally overwhelmed with doing what I'm already doing. Hopefully I'll get there soon.
I really should probably not put the dairy or eggs back into it if I do end up going with SCD. I'm so hesitant with stuff now. I just want to get this fixed! It's so frustrating!
My little one is long (6 months old and just over 29 inches) but has barely gained 5 pounds on her birth weight. She looks healthy but is gaining hardly anything at all .
