  • I use colloidal silver with great effects. It is a powerful anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, etc. It is good for infections but I am not sure about using it with a fever. I would be cautious especially because he is young, and the long term …
  • the59sound - thank you for confirming what I long suspected - that this site is not for me. I almost avoided joining this site because of a post just like this one, wherein you scolded someone for having views dissimilar to your own. I thought I cou…
  • spekgirl - Listen to your body - it will tell you what you need. Neither chickpeas nor corn are unhealthy foods, so if you feel you 'need' them, then have them. There are no hard and fast 'diet' or food rules (raw or otherwise) that any one person h…
  • I didn't realize there were teams. That explains the (sometimes) cut-throat competition.
  • the59sound, not everyone is raw for the same reasons you are. We all have different values and preferences, and some people want to eat for enjoyment as well as nutrition. That is not a bad thing - self punishment by denying all things pleasurable i…
  • Sometimes when we embark on new (healthier) journeys, our friends and family suddenly feel targeted for their own (unhealthier) choices. Improving your lifestyle can be like holding a mirror up to them - they see their imperfections ('faults') in ou…
  • Low body fat can contribute to feeling cold all the time, so increase your omega 3 and 6 (hemp seeds, chia seeds, walnuts), and other healthy fats like avocado and coconut oil. Warming spices like ginger, cardamom and cinnamon can help too. Also, fe…
  • The most basic advice for increasing fertility is to increase health. Drink more water, eat more raw, sleep more, relax more, exercise more, eat more omega 3 and 6 (flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds), reduce toxic exposure, reduce non-nutrients (ca…
  • Sounds like you are making some good changes for yourself, karrys. I bet that the more raw you eat, the better you feel. Sometimes that can be enough push in the right direction. Keep in mind that blood tests can be misleading - they are not always …

  • Yikes, aspirin all over your face? That doesn't seem safe to me... Aspirin is an anti-inflammatory, so it basically tells your body to 'shut up' when your body is crying out for help (by having symptoms or pain, etc). Overuse of any anti-inflammator…

  • Probiotics are safe for children (if taken in small amounts), and can be very effective in combatting symptoms of compromised digestion. However, the infrequent bowel movements could be attributed to issues other than compromised intestinal flora, a…
  • Good luck with everything malchusmom, it will get easier!
  • Ok malchusmom, take a deep breath and calm down. Social anxiety is VERY common and you should not be ashamed about it. A lot of medications just cover the symptoms, instead of going to the root cause. Perhaps some counseling or talking to someone ab…
  • Mammograms do indeed contain radiation that can contribute to health problems such as cancer later in life. There are other safer and more diagnostic tools now than mammograms, which are slowly becoming 'old news'. The best way to keep your breasts …
  • Oh wow I didn't even know that was possible, thanks for the link!
  • Vacuum sealing can help with this, but then you are exposing your food to plastic for a long period of time.
  • AVL - sounds like a good plan. You will know when you are ready to tackle certain issues, and it's important to respect yourself and your body. Maybe meditation would help you to relax? There are many guided meditation cd's that are very helpful.
  • AVL - I would not advice a juice fast while working out heavily. The main purpose of a juice fast is to gently cleanse the body so that it can re-build itself. Since exercise is stressful and is in itself a breaking down of the body (so the muscles …
  • Well it's hard to say what you need, since I know so little about you, but it sounds like probiotics may be helpful. They can help to restore natural intestinal flora that aid with digestion and nutrient assimilation (your flora may have been compro…
  • The main rule of food combining is that fruits should not be combined with any other foods. Dates are more of a carbohydrate than a fruit, so they may be combined with better results than other fruits. As for juices, I don't think it matters as much…
  • This is one topic in which I 'sit on the fence'. I agree that sunshine is healthy in many ways, but it can also be harmful in excess (but that is true of many things). Sun beds and real sunshine are MUCH different. The positive effects of getting 20…

  • Caroline Myss is wonderful! I have read some of her stuff - she is truly insightful and her stories are very inspirational. There are 2 movies that have powerful raw vegan messages of healing. They can be a bit hard to watch for some people followi…
  • My one piece of advice is to tread lightly in situations like this. I am involved in a very similar situation right now, but unfortunately my family member is not willing to make any dietary or 'natural' health choices, even though the allopathic me…
  • I think they taste like dirt too!

  • Beets are great juiced - they are very healthy for the kidneys and urinary tract, and they help with detoxification. In fact, I am drinking juice with beets and beet greens in it right now! I have also added slices of beet to smoothies before and it…

  • I agree houx - great advice!
  • JCTVCBN - How can she be 'not impressed' if she has not tried it yet? I don't have a Vita Mix (yet), but from what I hear, it becomes a lot more 'impressive' once its been put to use :) Also, if you search the forums, you should find a few posts abo…

  • Sisterbecky - There are so many great books on the market, it's hard to recommend just one. Holistic nutrition has a lot of sub-topics, and it's important to be well educated on each one in order to appreciate the holistic view. Knowing the basics o…
  • Hi Sarah! I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. I hope I can help you with this, but if you feel you need more specialized advice, I suggest seeing a naturopath, another alternative health professional or you can contact me and we can discuss thi…
  • You would also benefit from increasing your intake of vitamin C and zinc, both very important immune nutrients (to fight pathogen and prevent infection - vitamin E is also immune supportive). Not only immune supporting, vitamin C and zinc also parti…
