  1. Can you shed some light on your diet and environmental factors (live in a urban city? just brought a car and hence, exposed to the "new car smell"? surrounded by smoke all day?)?
  2. Generally (it differs from country to country and even between states), organic indicates that the food is produced: "without the use of conventional pesticides, artificial fertilizers, human waste, or sewage sludge, and that they were processed without ionizing radiation or food additives. Livestock are reared without the routine use of antibiotics and without the use of growth hormones." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organic_food Any serious health advocate will see that those qualities, tho
  3. Yeah, what rakbs said. Did your dermatologist say why he/she wanted you to stay away from B9 and B12? Oh, and I forgot to address the ginkgo biloba and omega-3 issue: are you having problems with thin blood and is that why your dermatologist recommends you to lower your ginkgo biloba and omega-3 intake? They’re fantastic substances to consume, both very healing (but don’t expect any miraculous and overnight results!). They do thin the blood slightly when taken incessantly and in excess. Ome
  4. Greatly enjoyed reading that article, thunder_cloud. Anyone avoiding meat for the delusional purpose of making the world cleaner needs to read it. And here are some texts for soy consumers who thought they were reducing waste on earth and making themselves healthier: "As most of my readers know, I am not a big supporter of soy products apart from lecithin. They're not that nutritious, not that tasty, plus they reduce thyroid activity and increase estrogen levels. Basically, the popularity of to
  5. Completely eliminate (not “diminish†or “take caution toâ€) the following items from your list: - not homemade sauces - chips - chocolate (unless of the utmost quality - so no Hershey’s! -, and eaten rarely and not along side meals) - sodas and bottled soft drinks (and, frankly, Lipton tea is included here) - peanuts - hot olive oil (and not just olive oil; any oil not largely saturated with saturated fats will oxidize when heated. Use ghee, lard, coconut oil, or palm oil for heating wit
  6. And about soy lecithin...
  7. I'm very excited to see the final product, when everything is polished! I am extremely exhausted from writing, but when I have recovered, I will give my two cents on the iodine-acne topic. Mainly, what I want to say is that iodine will not cause acne; rather, an extreme dose of it will unburden the nymph nodes and the toxins (bromide) released will cause the breakout. As well, iodine is commonly delivered in table salt and poor quality dairy; we all know those two items have a infamous reputati
  8. Do not be afraid of animal fats. Contrary to popular belief, not all fats are unhealthy. In fact, certain fats should be your best friends. Here: http://curezone.com/foods/fatspage.asp As well, read Udo Erasmus' "Fats that Heal Fats that Kill." Anyway, raw butter is a fantastic way to add more necessary easily digestable fat to your diet. If you are unable to get raw butter, get organic cultured butter. Even if you cook with it, you should still get the raw/cultured varitey. If you eat it str
  9. Perhaps baking the potato changes something other than amylopectin that causes it to spike insulin faster than its raw counterpart? [genuine question-asking tone; not being sarcastic]
  10. There is a similar case with beta-carotane overdose overtime, except I've read it's exclusive to smokers. I too, don't have any trouble believing this. Considering the highest amount of vitamin E found in nature is in sunflower seeds (~18mg per 1/4cup), 400mg is quite a lot.
  11. I don't have the first idea where to get good quality milk or butter.
  12. Unrefined sea salt is not a problem; only table salt is. Make sure the nuts are soaked or sprouted before consumption; this is important to rid the nuts (and seeds and grains) of their enzyme inhibitors. I can't recall where, but a poster named Leah_ advises soaking nuts with sea salt brine, and soaking grains with some acidic substance, such as yogurt, lemon juice, or vinegar. Follow her recommendations. Do not eat roasted nuts; they are VERY hard to digest, and their fats are rancid. Best bu
