Scott first talked about his difficult journey.
'I had been to all these specialists — Neurologists, Rheumatologists in the last year. Finally, I saw this functional doctor and I met him through the TV series that we do and he wanted to tackle it from a different perspective and he ran all these different tests on me and he actually found something that none of the others found,' he said.
'It was a pretty severe infection in my gut, my GI track and he also found that there was a lot of — I was missing certain things from my diet and I had other foods I was eating that I was extremely sensitive to.
He felt like the combination of these things were causing the overall symptoms that JD was experiencing. 'He treated the infection first and he put me on this diet where I could basically only eat air! It was a very restrictive, elimination diet. I’ve gotten back a lot of the functionality that I hadn’t had in over a year,' said Scott.

JD also said that the infection 'could’ve been in my body for years and I wouldn’t know about it.'
And there were specific things he was told to give up.
'I’ve removed all gluten, dairy, sugar, and soy. I’m doing so well that I haven’t wanted to tinker with it yet,' said the star.
'I was uncovering that I have a lot of high-level sensitivities to a lot of particular foods. One food is gluten, which I didn’t know that before, and it was causing my body to become very inflammatory.'

It all began in June 2108.
He had just come back from Drew’s wedding and was having 'some difficulties there with heat and getting tired with it.'
He added, 'It was something that you could almost kind of shrug off. It didn’t seem as important at the time.
'When I got back to Vegas, Annalee had to go out of town, and I had this one night where suddenly, I felt like I was having a heart attack to start with and the sensitivity to heat a couple of days before that had gotten really, really bad.
'So, I ended up going to the hospital because I thought my heart was having issues. It turned out my heart was fine, but those were symptoms of the overall issue that was going on, and they then started the process of trying to figure out.'
He also said it was hard keeping his illness quiet.

'The sickness was difficult to live through it. I had never dealt with a lot of these things that were suddenly thrust upon me and trying to figure out and what was wrong at the time and suffering from these debilitating symptoms was very difficult.
'All through that, I was maintaining this heir of ‘Everything was fine’
