Any advice would be appreciated! I am following MT's thread but whew! can't absorb much of that right now.
I'm taking a break from MT's thread too, it was making my head hurt!
I think one thing to take from it is the importance of minerals, especially when pg/bf'ing or detoxing.
I only know of individual minerals that are SCD legal. Trace Minerals is a good company but the one ionic mineral I tried, magnesium, was soooo
tasting. And the Cal/Mag/Zinc has sugar probably, it's very sweet.http://www.traceminerals.com/products.html
But it seems like she is saying we need to be more individual when choosing them. But always selenium is low b/c our soil is so poor.
Magnesium deficiency is common. We should always be concerned about calcium. And also zinc is essential for a leaky gut, see firefaery's post above.
Bone broth are also essential IMO. They contain a lot of minerals in easily absorbed electrolyte form including a ton of calcium. Plus gelatin which is so healing for digestive issues.
I like to make a lot of soups with homemade bone broths. I boil them down after finished cooking so they are concentrated and don't take as much room in freezer, then add water when making soup. Or make sauces for meats with the reductions.
