Winnipeg, MB It's always hug o'clock


While our journey's may be very different, the underlying truth of our Shared Human Experience remains the same.

Perhaps sharing the epiphanies and realizations of my journey also inspire you to realize that underneath it all we are all the same.

The short & sweet answers to "What is SCD, GAPS & Paleo?"

The same site where I had read about Food Combining, also listed another eating style that caught my attention... the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD).  Thankfully, this site really was the catalyst to turning me on to Paleo... because of how similar SCD was to GAPS (they are pretty much identical except on eliminates all dairy) and ultimately Paleo!

This connection was made while looking further into SCD at (unfortunately it looks like the link is down), which listed these following comparisons (thankfully I had copied this into my journal):

  1. SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet)?
    Indications: IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Crohn’s, Colitis, Celiac’s, and Autism.
  2. What is GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome)?
    Indications: Those suffering from neurological disorders due to the overgrowth of bacteria in the gut.
  3. What is Paleo?
    Indications: The Paleo diet has been used for weight loss, CrossFit Trainers, and general health. The autoimmune diet (protocol) is for those who suffer from autoimmune diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Celiac’s, Crohn’s, Eczema, Lupus, MS, Parkinson’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Type 1 Diabetes to name a few.

Seeing Paleo listed as the eating plan that would help with all of the conditions of the previous two... was the last piece of evidence I needed to give Paleo an honest try for myself.

It does not matter what other people say or do. What matters is how I choose to react and what I choose to believe about myself.
