whoMe - funny you mention biotin. This is one of my open tabs right now...

I got cocky (har har) with the eggs. (Local) ducks' eggs really and truly seemed to be okay, and even on looking back though the food journal, they are fine. No idea what they were fed. Chickens' eggs - local, free-range & organic, though fed goat's milk & corn & soy - are just so out. We had them Wed & Fri. Aev skipped her nap Wed & Fri. Lily had full scale nuclear meltdowns after lunch (had them for breakfast both days) on Wed & Fri. Lily has a neck rash and Aev has a patch of "dry skin" (read: will turn into eczema if it's scratched much or if I don't lotion the heck out of it) on her legs now.

I'm confused because we added in goat's dairy a few weeks ago and we've had a bit more this week than previous ones (though still not much: a bit of yogurt and some cheese). Lily love, love, LOVES it. Aevryn despises it. I like it well enough, but I wouldn't be too sad to lose it again. Lily has an IgE cow's milk allergy.... Just thinking out loud here... I go grocery shopping on Monday mornings. We will finish up the yogurt tomorrow and then I won't get any next week and we'll see how things go.

Nessa, DD1 (5) DD2 (3) & expecting again in late February/early March!

My brother who's 3 years older than me has Poland's Syndrome too. He's missing a pectoral muscle but no other issues (except digestive which he refuses to admit to). Isn't that weird? I've never met anyone else who has even heard of it before! They found his in the Army (after he'd already been in about 15 years) and when my brother told my parents, they said, "Oh yeah, we knew that. We must not have told you...." WHAT?!?!?

I vote to stop the goat's milk cheese (10x the casein of milk), especially for IgE cow allergy. Only (raw, preferred) cultured goat's milk for IgG, imo.

Dairy builds up agitation behavioral reactions over a few weeks exposure for many folks.

Not sure about the eggs, seems less likely, imo. Rash yes, behavior-less common, I believe. Are chicken eggs IgE? If not, I'd stop and rotate the duck eggs in less frequently, for a while, to settle the gut.

JR, check out this post about reflux and fermented veggies: http://heal-thyself.ning.com/forum/t...160Comment2753

Seems to have completely reversed my friend's reflux condition after just a few weeks of eating fermented veggies with each meal. She's been eating the Rejuvenative Foods Veggie Delight Zing Salad -- http://www.rejuvenative.com/catalog_vd.htm


Looks interesting!

Carren- I was thinking back over my timeline... and we started drinking our nutrient tea and dosing with chickweed tincture at the same time we started iodine. So who knows. Maybe its all of the above that is improving things for us. I definitely feel positive effects from both the iodine and the tea, and Taslyn is getting some of both directly. I'm certain that our nutrient stores are improving.

I'm just now admitting I'm having some mood/motivation-type issues right now (well, building for a few weeks now, lack of motivation, feeling worn down, avoiding stuff I need to do, like that) and I think I know how I want to deal with it, but any good vibes/short prayers/positive thoughts would be appreciated. With my husband not feeling very good, he's extra-susceptible to my bad moods and then it brings the whole household down, so I really need to snap myself out of it. And taxes are due in less than 3 weeks!

eta--yeah, it's detoxification related, I think I mobilized a lot during my last round and haven't caught up yet. I hope this is done someday, at the moment it feels like my progress is tiny and the end is so far, far away. Which is not reality, but my backlog of metals is skewing my perception. Hey, I'm glad I can recognize it, right?

Sorry I went MIA today. DH was going to Salem (which I think I mentioned) but he surprised me with a babysitter and I went too. I had a great time just hanging around adults all day.
I will be working on the new chat thread tomorrow (which is a day late to me ). Thanks for the well wishes and thinking of me.
I didn't really read much, just skimmed through b/c DH wants attention. Will see you tomorrow!

So glad you had a good day JR.

Tanya -sending support and patience your way. I think FEs could really help you right now. Hugs.

We are moving in a couple of days. Only feeling a little excitment mostly sadness. Also we officially turned down the affordable housing townhouse we were trying to get. We saw it a couple of weeks ago and didn't love it. The company called yesterday to tell us we could have it if we wanted. I had to say no. It is the right decision but I'm afraid it was our last chance for ownership. Starting homes here are usually300,000.
Off to move into a really lovely apartment, in a really lovely neighborhood with tons of other homesvhoolers, closer to our hs center, much closer to dh's work, with a dishwasher and washer and dryer (things I've never had in my life). Oh yeah next to the city , near walden pond. So why am I sad? I will miss my sunrises over the marsh, chatting with moms outside of my door watching a gaggle of boys running and tumbling about in our shared yard. I thinkin going through a mourning process .

Children deserve the respect of puzzling it out.

Yeah, goat's dairy is so out. We got the pee rxn last night. It took 4 days of for it to build up. She peed three times last night, the last of which was a full on accident in her undies; but she took herself w/o a fit, so it's weird, but a clear signal to me. I did not know that goat's milk had so much casein! I had always heard that it was easier to digest b/c it was more like human milk.

She is not IgE to eggs, at least per the tests. So, I'll stop the goat's dairy AND eggs, let everything settle. If duck eggs are still available (I'm hoping to contact the farmer directly, or possibly get our own ducks & geese) we'll try those again and not worry about the chicken eggs. The thing about chicken eggs is that when we've trialed them previously (I REALLY want them to work, ) even without other "suspect" foods, we've still observed an apparent build-up behavior rxn. Though, that could have been sulfur sensitivity in the past, which might be less of an issue now that we're opening up pathways and seem to tolerate onions and other high sulfur foods. And I'm officially rambling. Woo.

Lisa, I am very interested in your nutrient tea. I wrote down the ingredients way back when you posted them before. I hesitate over the oat straw. But I'm not sure why. It just gives me pause, I guess.

Tanya, I hope you start to feel the worth of your efforts soon.

JR, a day in the company of adults! Sounds fabulous. Good DH!

Mammo2Sammo, good for you for holding out for the right living situation. And yes, moving can be a grieving process for sure.

Nessa, DD1 (5) DD2 (3) & expecting again in late February/early March!

Where are you moving to? I live in Carlisle, next to Concord. I believe you'll be nearby. Perhaps we can meet? Wouldn't that be grand?

Your old living arrangement sounds lovely.

I have been feeling this way for a few weeks too...not sure what the answer is, but I did just get a new FE, and that will help.

Have you done the pink pee test? What about stomach acid? What about cultured raw dairy? What about egg yolks only? Maybe focus on adding a smidgen of fermented vegetable juice to help with increasing stomach acid. Or lemon in water first thing in the day, to help with digestion of the proteins.
