Chat Thread: April 4th to 10th

post #1 of 378
Thread Starter 
Where is the time going? Only 7 more weeks until this bub is due! Which, of course, means it'll be here in 8 weeks since I'm expecting it to be here in 6. (And, yes, "it". I'm still in denial that it's ANOTHER boy. )

Last things first: last week's chat thread. Thank you so much, Tanya, for getting it up!

The requisites:
Detox sticky in H&H
Kortner's Supplements thread
MomofMine's Copper thread (so glad you added this, Tanya, I'd have totally lost it by this weekend)
whoMe's step by step detox
whoMe's sulfur sensitivity thread
ellasmama's bile thread
mtn mama's KP thread
I know some of them haven't been very active but I keep hoping people will post relevant information they find to them.
whoMe's focus thread
whoMe's sleep thread
Tanya's Planning thread

Emilysmama has started a thread to discuss which air filter is best for airborne allergies here.

I'm sure I'm missing a million things. I wanted to get everyone's "me" threads in too but I really need to get going on my day. Hoping to get my freezer inventory/cleaning done today so I can get a bunch of stuff for a freezer meal session tomorrow and get it done Monday (or something like that) so the boys don't starve while I'm having this new one.

I wrote this this morning but haven't been able to post it until now because there was something wrong with my internet connection and DH has been too busy to fix it.

Pat,
I really enjoyed reading about your spiritual path and beliefs in the recent vegetarian thread. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with all of us on this forum.

See? I knew I'd miss something. Thanks for the link. I forgot to add it this morning even though it was on my mental list.
DH kept asking "What're you doing ? What're you doing?" Sometimes he's as bad as the kids.
ETA: And other times, he's worse.

CS- no CLO here. When I dropped the TwinLabs, I started beta-carotene drops (for a few months, then switched to green juice) and high dose vitamin D and liquid K2. After everything I've read, and everywhere we've been, I don't think we'll go back to CLO.
Quote:
Can you talk about how you feel confident that you're converting the beta-carotene into A? I feel this deep doubt that I will ever be good at that--which is irrational, because it's normal to not convert when one has thyroid problems, but my thyroid's a heckuva lot better than it used to be, and will keep getting better and be great. But I am still skeptical that I can either get enough pre-formed A (ala Price in N&PD--do you think he's just really wrong on the preformed fat-soluble vitamins? would love to hear thoughts) from food or convert enough beta-carotene to be in good shape. So I'd love to hear a bit more about your journey.
I want to hear about this so much I'm transferring my question (2nd quote) to MtnMama's post (1st quote) just so it doesn't get lost!

whoMe--i feel not knowledgeable enough on the mouth/palate stuff to respond--I think I see a whole lot with my kids, to me it unifies Price's pictures of narrowing faces and pointy chins and narrow noses with the anterior and posterior tongue ties and not eating our lots of minerals and tons of fat-soluble vitamins to put the bone where it should be while we're developing, but I don't know of Price pics online (those family shots of the kids getting progressively narrower faces the younger they are is striking), and while to me it all makes sense, it's very visual and lacking quotable references. But that is a huge part of what makes this all come together for me (my unified theory of how we're going to get out of all this!).

Regarding the link whoMe just posted in Kortner's thread:
Anyone else ever feel like we're reinventing the wheel?

Cool! But at first I was expecting links to interesting chat posts... Kind of like the cliffs notes version I'm not about to volunteer for that job, though

Who wants to sift the archives for all of Elisabeth's gems? Anyone?

Hey, I regularly search her old stuff for topics I'm trying to learn on or puzzles I've got. Haven't ever written up notes, but I LOVE the Search function around here.

Although now that you mention it... if we searched for leaky, or detoxification or something like that, ... too many hits? maybe, or maybe really useful. Organizing it would be difficult... but difficult is not equal to impossible...

That's still on my to do list.
This will give me a little more time to do the things on my to do list. It usually takes me a few hours to chase down the threads and post the links to the weekly chat thread (between trying to do that and chasing a toddler, as well as being constantly interrupted by a 9 yo and DH, making breakfast, blah blah... all that Saturday morning stuff). This way I only have one link to post, besides any which may be of more temporary interest, iykwim.

Kind of like when you get a new job and the first step is to sort out the mess from the person behind you. And then you get motivated to be all organized so the *next* person doesn't have to sift through your mess. And then you settle in and don't realize how hard it would be to make sense of your organizational scheme...

How about we find the lost Library of Alexandria while we're at it?

You know you can search by user, right? I am reserving my brainpower for detox biochemistry. If I tried to take on the archives, it'd set back our healing by years!

I'm already having trouble remembering what put the bug in my ear about taurine... Something to do with sulfation?

I wasn't joking when I said I've searched her stuff many, many times. Yeah, I search by username, I'm just glad it fills in so I don't have to figure out the funny o.

Hmm... let me see how this evening goes... I know that not everything worthwhile has been discussed here at MDC, but sometimes it feels like it's close. It's just a matter of finding it.

I totally hear you. It's like finding a needle in a haystack sometimes. And aren't the searches limited to the last few years now?

And no, the taurine wasn't Pottenger's cats. I feel like it was something more recent than that. Maybe bladder or salicylate related?
