What is it about mad scientists that makes them so captivating? Unrelenting, explosive brain power. They live on the edge of crazy so we don't have to. And every once-in-a-while they learn things that help all of us. In today's SCD mailbag we answer more of your questions and share what we've learned experimenting like mad scientists.
In the last week I think I’ve really turned a corner. Not a physical corner but a mental corner. Understanding that I’m not alone, and that I’m not the first person to act this way or have these problems really helps. It’s one of those realizations that should be simple and yet it was extremely hard for me. It is really easy for me to get stuck inside my head and start thinking that my experience is some how blazing a trail. This is a trail that many people have gone down before and so while we are all unique we also not that unique.
In Part II we discussed SCD legal wine which is made through the process of fermentation. In this guide will examine SCD legal liquors which are drinkable liquids containing ethanol made by distilling fruits, grains or vegetables. If you missed Part I make sure you go back and re-read it to have a better understanding of how any alcohol affects your digestive system.
In Part I of this series we discussed alcohol’s effects on our digestive systems and I gave a listing of legal and Illegal alcohol types. Of the types of legal alcohols they can be broken down into wines and liquors. In this post we will learn all about wines and how someone on the SCD diet can identify which wines to drink to minimize damage to the digestive system.
Alcohol is a very controversial subject that has plenty of scientific studies that could be used to argue both sides until your blue in the face. I’m going to try and present as much of an unbiased look into the effects of alcohol on the digestive tract as possible and how that relates to the SCD Diet.
