" The SCD Lifestyle book and website are what really got me serious about starting the SCD. I had read Breaking the Vicious Cycle, but to be honest, it seemed so outdated. When I found your website and read the book, I saw that you were young people with busy lives living in today's world, and you were doing it. So then I knew that I could do it. And I started, and I began to notice changes immediately. I don't have UC or anything seriously life threatening, but I do have SIBO, and it was to the point where it seriously impacted my quality of life. It's been about 2 years since I've discovered the SCD, and my life is now drastically different. I no longer spend hours upon hours in the bathroom, I'm no longer severely bloated, I'm not constantly tired/lethargic, and I just feel like a different person. My eating habits are now more Paleo, because it's just what works for me, but that's the other thing that SCD Lifestyle taught me. You need to do what's right for you. Just because it's "SCD" legal, doesn't mean it's OK for you. You need to experiment. For example, I don't do well with too many nuts...they don't digest well, and they tend to be a "trigger" food for me (but that's a different story...) so I avoid them. Thanks for teaching me to listen to my body. Oh, and thanks for the 5 day "get back on track" diet plan, that thing has been a total life saver!!!! "
Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes.
