Wow....great thread......it took me the entire day, on and off, but I made it through the 27 pages
My son (13 months) has cavities/tooth decay in 3 of his front teeth, and after a horrible experience with an insensitive and ignorant "pediatric dentist" yesterday (who mainly recommended I "wean my son ASAP since the teeth problems are caused by nursing"
, I am now researching alternatives.
My biggest problem:
I looked at the greenpastures-website for the butter oil and the CLO, but I'm in Alaska, and they want about 35 $ shipping costs for only 3 bottles (I did a comparison with a zipcode from the lower 48, and it was 13 $ for the same order). I really wish those companies would also use the postal service, not just UPS
I read on page 20 or so that there was a coop formed for ordering from that website to take advantage of the lower bulk prices....is that coop (or any other one) still in existence.....? And if yes, would you let me join, even if I'm not local, and ship my orders to me? Or would anyone else in the lower 48 be interested in doing a group order with the lower prices, and then sending me my share with USPS, e.g. in a flat rate box?
I also have looked at some supplements on the vitaminshoppe.com website (free delivery, even to AK, if you reach min. order amount
), but I'm getting confused.....I think I'd like "something green" and "something probiotic".....would this be a good choice?http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/e...jsp?id=GU-1087
Or could you recommend anything else?
And then about "Trace minerals".....that garden of life product contains "perfect protein mineral matrix"....is that something like trace minerals or would I have to get something else for that....? (If yes, is there anything on vitaminshoppe that you'd recommend?)
I read in this thread that some people are using extra virgin coconut oil......would I just use that instead if the olive oil/butter I'm using now, e.g. for frying? Is it a good idea to switch to that? And would this brand be ok?http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/e...jsp?id=GU-7001
Or does it have to be a higher priced one like the one from greenerpasture?
I hope my questions are not toooooo dumb.....I got pretty confused, there really is a lot of information in this thread (and I'm still working on the tooth soap and the xylitol, too
)Basically, what I'm looking for is to be able to order most of the things that were recommended throughout this thread without having to pay exorbitant shipping charges for it
(the companies always stick it to us Alaskans
. I'm a SAHM, and money is tight, but I definitely want to do all I can do to stop my son's tooth decay.
I know that those independent websites probably have the better products but maybe for some things I could find a "runner up" on the vitaminshoppe-website that's acceptable...?
Therefore, if one of you knowledgeable ladies could give me a few pointers as to how/where to get the best start, I'd really, really appreciate it
Many thanks in advance,
