Jane-I'm calling them today. What it's grown on and what it's started on are two different things. I just can't take any more chances.

Pookietooth-I don't know. If you're concerned, call. What I do know is that we just set up an account with a nut butter company that is allergen-free. No soy and no peanuts, no gluten, no dairy. It's called Futter's Butters. www.futtersnutbutters.com I will be obtaining all my nut butters from them.

mama-a-llama-there are plenty of things you can take for blood sugar support if you are still in need of it. Ask about chromium, vanadium, cinnamon...there are others too. Fenugreek is actually very good at regulating blood sugar. You just need to take it in a specific way.

I'm now drooling over the chocolate walnut....Thanks a lot.

I just ordered some melatonin for dd. We haven't tried that yet. We'll see how it goes. I'm also working on getting more kombucha into her. We'll see. I'm just getting sick of experiementing.

Oh on another site I'm on there is a mom who is seeing a DAN Dr' for her ds. He sent him to a ped GI who scoped him and said that the yeast is becasue of inflamation and if you can get the inflamation undercontrol the yeast will go away too. This kid is on some anti-inflamatory drugs, not anti yeast drugs. Anyone know anything about this angle?

I'd love to know more about this, too.

Darn! I have some melatonin I would've sent you. I tried it for for dd2
and while it did help her fall asleep initially, it did not keep her from waking (and waking, and waking...) DD never really had trouble falling asleep, she just can't *stay* asleep.

How much melatonin do you give an infant? DD's been having a horrible time going to sleep at night lately (actually I think she's having a fine time, but I'm not!)--takes a couple of hours to get her to go to sleep (and stay asleep for a couple of hours).

Well if it works you can send me your left overs.

FF- those nut butters look good, esp the chocolate varieties. When I cheat I have been having a square of very dark chocolate . Sorry your little one's are sensitive, it gets expensive trying all these different foods and suppliments only to find they don't work or make someone react. Not to mention that you have to do all your buying on line.

gilamama-sounds like you don't trust your natural doctor, don't go back it her advice makes you uncomfortable. Trust your instinct as to how much to eat during your fasting, nursing takes a lot of energy and calories. Also I read this article from the westin price foundation about grains for babies:
Quote:
Finally, respect the tiny, still-developing digestive system of your infant. Babies have limited enzyme production, which is necessary for the digestion of foods. In fact, it takes up to 28 months, just around the time when molar teeth are fully developed, for the big-gun carbohydrate enzymes (namely amylase) to fully kick into gear. Foods like cereals, grains and breads are very challenging for little ones to digest. Thus, these foods should be some of the last to be introduced. (One carbohydrate enzyme a baby’s small intestine does produce is lactase, for the digestion of lactose in milk.1)
The whole article can be found at http://www.westonaprice.org/foodfeat...rish-baby.html

Anyone have any suggestions for cold remedies? I'm already taking vitamin C to bowel tolerance and it doesn't appear to be doing a darn thing. I already take 5 cloves of raw garlic a day, too--maybe I need to increase that if I'm sick? The only remedy I know of for colds/sore throats is honey in tea (besides gargling with salt water) and of course no honey on this diet I just hope DD doesn't catch it.

Sore throat...either throat coat tea (works SO well) or gargle with hypericum. I also employ colloidal silver for a really bad one. You shouldn't need to take any more garlic than you are.

If it is really bad the wet sock treatment is great, but not all that comfortable.

For future reference I love Yin Chiao for the beginning of colds/flu. If you catch it at the very beginning it never happens. IT's the one piece of "voodoo" my husband will regularly submit to as it always works for him.

Nolansmum-that is why I feel super lucky to be able to set up accounts, makes it hurt far less.

DD got a cold today. I gave her a bath with some oils in it for colds. Can't remember all the stuff in it (got it in Germany) but eucalyptus and menthol, maybe plus some other stuff. Did some facial massage for her: warm the sides of your thumbs and then rub down either side of your nose, close to the front. You can also circle your eyes, and there is a acupuncture point just to the side of your nose -- in the depression -- that you can press on with your thumbs.

You could make a ginger/red pepper/lemon tea.

Do you have an acupuncturist? I have found them helpful for sinus/cold stuff.

FF and Annikate - how did you gt rid of the pill-in-your-throat feeling (AK; if you do with that chelator, let me know!)?
post #55 of 510
Must be the first wave of colds, DS is getting over one and of couse he shared it with DH and me.

You ladies are so knowlegeable! FF- your family is so lucky to have you as a momma, who needs a doc(for the small stuff at least.)

Question about nut butters/nuts: When I soak nuts a al NT and then put them in the oven on a low temp are they still considered raw? When you buy nut butters from the store do you buy raw or roasted?
post #56 of 510
Here is a pic of us from last year

Dried nuts have to stay under 120 I think? FF would know for sure.
post #57 of 510
for really "raw", I thought the temp was 105F.

For colds I like to make a rosemary infusion, letting it steep for about 20 minutes. It's not bad at all to drink! Lately I have been using elderberry syrup and that works like a charm. I hope somebody can use this!

Here is a picture of DD and me from a wedding in May, and some of her from about two weeks ago.

I never had that feeling really, I was just *ahem-ing* a lot and feeling like I needed to keep swallowing yk? It wasn't really uncomfortable though.

I hate to admit it but while I was strict about the anti-candida thing (for a whole week and a half ) it did go away. Once I started fruit (and chocolate) again it came back a little.

That anti-candida diet messed me up so terribly that I started wondering why I was placing faith in a crazy homeopath to tell me what's right for me when clearly, the last 9 months or so on the SCD were working. I went back to *my way* with a few cheats here and there (like chocolate) and now I'm back to feeling normal again.
