I am continually coughing up flem out of my chest which worsens . .. improves . then worsens a bit . . . same thing with congestion...
Not acne.  But I must say I'm surprised to find a pimple on him now and again - maybe 1x/week at this point and just one?   Is this normal at 9 - going in to 4th grade?   Is it due to lack of washing?  or hormonal?  I am worried about hormonal problems - is this a sign?  He doesn't have any other issues going on that I can identify.   Any info greatly appreciated!   Tripmom   Mom to DS (9) and BBG (6)
Congrats to you!  Babies look beautiful.  Enjoy and survive!  That's my motto for the first few years . . . . . having triplets is truly amazing!   Jessica Mom to DS (8) and BBG (6)
Has anyone done this cleanse or done any cleanse and had a similar vasovagal attack? I am on the 3rd week of the program and was feeling great for the 2nd week after the adjustment of the 1st week . . . until . . . .yesterday when I landed in the ER?

I am in my 3rd week and spent the day in the ER yesterday after a seemingly vasovagal attack? Looking for anyone who has done this or any other cleanse and had a similar experience?

I am x-posting this here and in the healthy eating forums as I hope this community may have some experience on this topic . . .see below: All - We have been working for 3 long years on our school's "Wellness Committee" to fix the horrendously awful school lunch being served to our kids on a daily basis -- almost entirely processed reheated foods with an ingredient list a mile long. We have seen a very recent shift in attitude with the administration - and for some...
All - We have been working for 3 long years on our school's "Wellness Committee" to fix the horrendously awful school lunch being served to our kids on a daily basis -- almost entirely processed reheated foods with an ingredient list a mile long. We have seen a very recent shift in attitude with the administration - and for some reason the principal unilaterally and without warning decided to remove chocolate milk from the lunch room. This has caused major backlash...
