  • How about dried apricots? Figs are another possibility, though their seeds would change the character of the dish. Sometimes a liquid sweetener (honey, agave, yacon) would suffice if the dates are not a huge part of the recipe.
  • I would have suggested magnesium if you hadn't brought it up yourself. And you probably already know this, but eating a wide range of different foods will ensure you get a range of nutrients, too.

  • Isn't it called a "bible cyst" because you're supposed to smack it with a bible? ;) But perhaps you could try some bentonite both internally and externally on the cyst. And exercise is always a great idea. I'd think that betonite or other clays migh…
  • I know what you mean about zucchini; I get tired of it so fast. I like to use a combination of cucumber and carrot for a refreshing "pasta"--not too much like cooked pasta, but I'll take it over zucchini any day. Beets are also fun if you don't mind…
  • Being on the pill will disrupt your hormones significantly, and it will take quite a while for your body to equalize. But five years is quite a while, so that may no longer be a significant factor for you. In the meantime, you may want to consider a…
  • Flax can go rancid very quickly. If you start out with fresh flax, it's usually fine after dehydrating, but if the seeds are old, you might wind up with a spoiled product when you dehydrate. In general, the golden flax seeds taste milder than the br…
  • If you're willing, grapefruit seed extract is great; I take tablets, and when I feel an infection of any kind coming on, I find that taking about 2x what the bottle recommends helps fight it off within a day or two.

  • thecavsman - I totally get what you're saying, and the dogmatism of the 8/1/1 crowd turns me off in a big way. I especially hate to see that their answer to any health issue that one of their "followers" experiences is that they're "not doing it rig…
  • I don't have any extras, but you can order *just* the screen here: http://www.vitalityplus1.com/product_info.php?sessID=e27040b1b2ca0fd6f90f7e749daf5ba4&products_id=431&cPath=0_41 I've bought this product before, and both the product and the…
  • If you're interested in staying all raw and feeling better, you might consider eating some more "warming" raw foods, like tomatoes, peppers, seaweed, or soaked nuts and seeds. This guy has a pretty good description of his experience going raw, and w…

  • It doesn't look like the link in my first post worked . . . how about http://www.iherb.com/ or http://www.iherb.com/Artisana
  • It looks great! But I'd love to know the ingredients for those tasty treats . . .
  • Hopefully this has cleared up by now, but I find that a drop of colloidal silver put in the eye clears up infections pretty quickly for me--usually by the next day. If not, I follow it up with another drop or two and I'm fine. However, this is an of…

  • As a quick topical fix, some diluted apple cider vinegar applied topically should clear it up.
  • I find that my blender is much better for pretty much any liquid or semi-liquid that I want to get totally smooth. But my blender is better quality than my food processor--and I use them both every day. If you're happy with your food processor, then…
  • The body takes longer to digest fats than to digest sugars, which is why people recommend eating fruit early (so it's not sitting in your digestive system on top of fatty foods and fermenting). However, if you're not experiencing digestive difficult…
  • I really think you need professional medical advice; unless you can find someone with the proper medical background or who has the same condition you do, I don't think most of us here are qualified to speak to your situation. Please be especially su…

  • I have a Braun Combimax that's been going for 10+ years. For the past few years I think I've used it every single day. It has two containers, and comes with shredding and slicing blades as well as the standard S-blade. Though if you can afford a Mag…
  • I don't eat onion or garlic often at all, but when I do, I find that sometimes I can smell it on my breath, in my urine, and coming out of my pores for days afterward, whereas other times I don't notice this at all. I'm sure there's some body chemis…
  • I'd also suggest mushrooms. If you're trying a new variety, be absolutely sure that it is safe raw--there are edible mushrooms out there that are poisonous unless cooked (and of course others that are poisonous even after cooking). This site suggest…
  • There's no reason you can't use them sprouted! They'll just have more a little more protein, which is usually not a bad thing. The only danger of leaving them to sprout more is that they could get moldy. They could also get bitter if they sprout too…
  • Diatomaceous earth is an extremely effective anti-parasitic (I'd say even more so than the herbs you mention). Just be sure that neither you nor your dog breathe in the powder. Here's a page with info: http://wolfcreekranch1.tripod.com/heartworm.htm…
  • I'd say lay off the Retin-A; I know it's supposed to be good for the skin, but one of the side effects some people experience seems to be dry skin. Of course, this is easier for me to say than for you to actually do. Staying well-hydrated is good fo…
  • For the record, even Doug Graham recommends eating soaked nuts and seeds. And avocados. Just not to excess--"excess," of course, being up for speculation.
  • Cucumbers go well with almost anything. If you do some fruit, granny smith apples aren't too sweet, and they also taste good with most things. I would think that red pepper would be tough on the digestion; I know it always makes me burp. But maybe i…
  • I'm not a doctor, but I'd think the more greens the better for any type of healing. As for calories, sweet potatoes are a good high-calorie food to juice. I'd definitely aim for more than 800 calories if it's more for than a day or so, especially if…
  • I like Kroeger herbs; they have an additive-free milk thistle in vegicaps. Healthforce Nutritionals does make a formula they call "Liver Rescue", which has milk thistle and other supporting herbs. The site won't let me add hyperlinks; I'm sorry. But…

  • I actually did quite a bit of research on this out a short time ago; as far as I could find, every manufacturer of organic edamame sold in the US does in fact blanch (i.e. cook) the beans before packaging. This includes Cascadian Farms and Seapoint …

  • Salads are easy and ubiquitous. Mexican and sushi places usually have avocado, which is filling. I think bringing your own "extras," either fruit as Swayze suggests or some other kind of salad topping, can make your meal more filling and shouldn't a…
  • The soybeans (or other beans) and grains are cooked before miso or tamari are made. However, the beans are then cultured with a bacterium. When you buy unpasteurized miso or tamari, you are buying a "live" product in that the bacterium is still aliv…
