i am so blown away by this thread - ff you are so good at this, seriously!
this maybe a mute point now but i was reading in nourishing traditions last night, mtn.mama and i thought of taslyn. "it is magnesium, not calcium, that helps form hard tooth enamel....found in dairy products, nuts, vegetables, seafood, meat, broths....a diet high in carbs, oxas and phytic acid can cause deficiencies...chocolate cravings are a sign of mag deficiency." i know this was sorta covered already, but i thought i'd mention it again.
also, i take the vsl3 and havent noticed a problem for dd who cant do corn. i havent given it to her directly though and dont know if she is hypersensitive to corn or not ( i never sneak it into our diet except for the vsl3).
