  • thanks so much guys!
  • Remember guys this was written for the general public- those who have never even heard of the raw food diet
  • Powerlifer, I sure have and they work :) I chose to use the herbs milk thistle, Artichoke, Dandelion, Turmeric. The brand I'm using now is Natural Factors Milk Thistle Phytosome. Previously I used Detox II (burdock and red clover). I'll probably rev…
  • I posted pics on my site for my update: http://www.veganatgenesis.com/2010/05/hormonal-balance-root-cause-of-my-adult.html Kitty: I even show the acne from my gluten intolerance under my chin and it's typically present on my neck as well. Raw food d…
  • Powerlifer: I totally agree with the info, my sources stated the same (I didn't feel like writing a dissertation on the matter though, I am an amateur you know lol) except MACA was a NO NO for me- I never experienced acne as bad as I had while using…
  • Sure thing, thanks
  • I did have problems with weakening teeth due to the acid from so much fruits. So try to use a straw with your fruit and green smoothies to protect your teeth. The spam filter won't allow me to leave the link but on my site under the section Health T…
  • I had the same symptoms you're describing when I discovered that I had a gluten in tolerance. You can be best for it or simply eliminate bread, pasta, any thing that has wheat from your diet for about 2-4 weeks. When you incorporate it back into you…
  • It sounds like you may have yeast overgrowth too, which it much trickier for me to treat than Strep B- Ironically :( We typically get yeast infections because of a deficiency in our diet. I'm pregnant so mine just won't to go away :( yet, I don't ha…
  • Well, Strep can come back. Mine did in two years after I had my daughter. I guess you could think of it like a cold/flu. Sometimes they are inevitable no matter how hard we try, and where as we have them for a short period of time the can come back.…
  • Hi, Dumpling! I received instant relief when adding colloidal silver to a douche. I always followed and measured according to the instructions. Yes I found probiotics helpful too. I do have a word of advice though. Drinking lots of water can help th…
  • lol yeah I can imagine the bitterness...Yuck! Thanks for the tip on collodial silver. I used to be so against douches, but I've been using apple cider diluted in water from time to time to give myself a break from the colloidal silver and it has bee…
  • powerlifer, the pau d'arco wasn't causing my sore throat on it's own. It was the combination of herbs/supplements. I've recently added it to my maintaneance regimen and it seems to be working fine thus far. What do you know about colloidal silver? i…
  • You're so welcome Rmerriman. I know exactly how you feel. It's horrible! The Oregon Grape Root gave me alot of relief. You just follow the directions on the bottle. I think it's 3 times a day. Make sure to take your garlic at night. I'm not sure abo…
  • Powerlifer, What's ironic about my situation with Strep-B is that I got it after eating mainly a raw fruitarian diet :( I didn't intentionally plan my diet that way, but in hindsight that was the only difference in my lifestyle that could have trigg…
  • Wow Powerlifer, I totally agree with you. We should never manipulate the natural balance of our body- the stomach functions perfectly in its acidic environment. Dr. Young does recommend those pH drops but common sense told me that it wasn't necessar…
  • Powerlifter, I recently read an article by Matt Monarch in which he addressed the concept the pH balance. He clarified that our bodies work to remain in the same healthy state regardless of what we eat (acidic or alkaline foods), called homeostasis,…
  • Butterfly, I wrote a review on Dr. Young's book, this is from my colunm the best in you http://www.veganatgenesis.com/2010/03/ph-balance-promotes-well-being.html
  • Oh I forgot to include doubling up on Vitamin C Cupcakes you're right about the Apple Cider Vinegar
  • I used Nature's Way Pau d'Arco inner bark 545 supplement. It did not work for me in the way of giving relief from itching. The combination of herbs mentioned earlier is what gave me relief from itching. I stopped taking the Pau d'arco after the thir…
  • Thanks powerlifer, I wonder why it didn't work for me? I thought it would too. I get what you mean about acidiosis, and I never will believe that any one diet is the cure all for all people. Some benefit from eating high alkaline foods much better t…
  • Powerlifer, Strep B is not a yeast infection (yeast is must easier to treat), and pau darco does not work at all for Strep B. I haven't used the other two you mentioned. Strep B is an overgrowth of bacteria not yeast and although the symptoms are ve…
  • I don't believe it is stomach acid that he believes should be alkalized, but alkalizing the blood.
  • Lentils sure are strong! I don't sprout them anymore unless I plain to let them marinate in braggs. I'm so in love with fenugreek sprouts- they're sooooooooo good! http://www.veganatgenesis.com/2010/01/sprouts-learning-to-love-them.html Right now I'…
  • :) @ Freewitheft Ok well, I did make that zucchini with marinara for my hubby and I did like it alot, but guess why? Because I added Olive oil and onion powder to it-which I never do, but I followed Jennifer Cornbleet's recipe (she has some good one…
  • lulushak8, I have been doing the same thing! I'm a seasonal raw vegan. The amount of raw food I eat is determined by the season. I didn't notice it until you said it. I naturally go raw (100%-80%) in the spring and summer, but my body won't let me e…
  • Don't feel bad- eat healthy!
  • i know i was not getting enough magnesium for whatever reason. So, I make sure to eat even cooked foods high in magnesium- vegan of course.
