Going Back to the Introductory Diet

Hi Friends!

I have been on SCD for 10 years. I am currently off medication but seem to be experiencing a flare (diarrhea and nausea). I would like to avoid going back on medicine. Is there value in doing the introductory diet again? If I do it should I go through each stage, adding foods back one by one or just do the introductory diet for 4-5 days and then return to SCD as normal (eating all legal foods)?

Yes, redoing the intro may help.

If doing the intro gets rid of diarrhea and nausea then after the intro you could try eating all legal foods. Otherwise, do the intro for 4-5 days and then gradually reintroduce foods.
