  • Thanks bitt.
  • sweet - did you take prescription medicines in the past? If the bacterial flora in the tummy is destroyed it can cause a lot of gas and bloating. Try taking probiotics for a couple of months and see if that helps. If you want to experiment you can t…

  • I also agree with the comment about sugar issue with fruits, but it may not apply to Sweet - and I say that from personal experience, not from some theory or books. Some of us may have more sugar issues than the general population. So, Sweet, if you…

  • You got to listen to your own body. There is no one formula for everybody. For some lots of fruits is perfectly fine, and it is really convenient. However, there is another group which cannot handle a large amount of fruits - somebody like me - and …

  • Consider taking a serious dosage of good quality probiotics. You might start noticing some improvement pretty soon. It might not be the cure or help all the way but it will help some, for sure.

  • I take this one: http://www.iherb.com/Natural-Factors-B12-Methylcobalamin-Double-Strength-5000-mcg-60-Sublingual-Tablets/15729?at=0
  • Cardamom (with the shell) - the green ones - and cloves can also be used.
  • There is a reason why the body doesn't have an appetite - it wants to concentrate on fighting the virus rather than spend the energy in digestion. It is a good idea to listen to the body. Juice (it gives you the all the vitamins and minerals without…
  • Just as an aside, I read somewhere that most of North American soya and corn are genetically modified. So, if this bothers you, you might like to look for the organic variety.

    in Tumeric Comment by ns
  • I guess you mean turmeric. You can grind/powder it and add small amounts to lentil soups, vegetables, salads, etc.. It is a common Indian spice and they use it in all kinds of vegetable/curry/daal (lentil soup) preparations - most of which are cooke…

  • From a google search I came across the following vegan source of D3: http://www.upayanaturals.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=PRL-110 But look at the price.
  • Check this out: http://www.iherb.com/Country-Life-Dry-Vitamin-D-1000-IU-100-Tablets/1675?at=0 but what you probably need is vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), preferably in liquid form. I don't think there is a vegan source of D3 - it comes either from f…
  • I started taking it a few weeks ago to cure the remnants of mild eczema - itchy shin. Haven't noticed any benefit from it so far. But then I am trying so many things at the same time I might not know what fixed it, even if I am able to cure it.
    in Anyone take MSM? Comment by ns
  • You are probably missing the two very important supplements - d3 and b12. B12 might be able to help a bit with the mood.
  • Even though I am not as active as you appear to be, I have noticed that I always feel better and recuperate faster after my activity days if I use a good amount of protein powder in some drink/shake/smoothie. I am still experimenting but I am quite …
  • powerlifer: what bitters can one use for general digestive purposes? and in what form - capsules, powder, raw herb? Any brands and types you recommend? I don't think I have any serious digestive issues. However, I wouldn't mind trying out the bitter…

  • I recently started oil pulling. I smoke (just a few a day - bad enough) and I used to get phlegm - that definitely improved after oil pulling. But it is too soon to tell about its other advantages. I am still trying to cure my mild eczema (only on t…

  • I use a local Canadian brand - it won't be available everywhere. The big brands are a bit pricey. I guess you can look at some in Whole Foods and see if any suits your requirements. Actually , now I am coming to the conclusion that we don't even nee…

  • Why not just use the same plant based natural soap for both body and hair? That's what I do and it seems to work for me. (And I used to have a serious case of seborrheic dermatitis.)

  • Two winters ago I had a severe attack of lower back pain and sciatica - I had been having milder versions almost every year. The doctors gave me stronger and stronger pain killers every time I visited them, and the medicines made me worse with nause…
  • I was low on vitamin D and near the lower end of the reference level for b12. I saw a definite overall improvement after supplementing with both. I bought both from iHerb.com. For vitamin D, you need D3 - preferably in liquid form or sublingual. For…

  • Mix it with your smoothies. You will never know the taste of it. I keep it outside the fridge.
  • I read in a book that there is a popular theory that we are all born with a kind of enzyme bank as far the ability to produce enzymes is concerned. Our ability to produce enzymes keeps going down with age and adding outside enzymes for digestion wou…
    in Improve Digestion? Comment by ns
  • Try digestive enzymes and probiotics as supplements. If that works then you know that your problem is that your body and raw foods alone are not able to provide enough enzymes.

  • I used to have recurring lower back pain and sciatica, although they were certainly not related to food or detox. What works best for me is yoga, next best is exercise/stretching.
  • Many people say that we cannot absorb the b12 from spirulina and there are no vegetarian source of b12. In any case, there are other great advantages of spirulina. But if you have b12 deficiency (btw many say that the current reference levels are lo…

  • Most people say that seedless fruits are hybrids - not genetically modified. However, I came across an article which claims that seedless watermelons are GM. http://ezinearticles.com/?Certified-Organic-Seedless-Watermelon&id=506711
