You know I am trying to see the positive in this as well. Finally this weekend it clicked for me that DUH the purpose of eating is to sustain our bodies, that is pretty important. I guess I always knew this, but we really do not make that connection often enough. I am excited to read Price's book, althouhg I am wondering what other food I love will I no longer be able to eat!!
I hated to read about your lil' guy! I do hope you guys get things figured out. I was wondering is there anyway you guys could do baths everyday, or would that bother the eczema too much? ... I can sure understand being frustrated, which really just makes me mad at myself. You have to take it easy on yourself as well!
Well, my oven has 20w max posted on the bulb, so I put my light in there with the thermometer, and am seeing how it is doing. It was a shy past 110 last time I checked, so a 45 w might be best for the long run. I have told dh that he has to eat some yogurt!

Me and 10 mo old dd are battling thrush yet again. I can't stand this!! makes me just want to run to the doctors and ask for the drugs. But i am resisting and trying the GV and GSE and vinegar and acidophilos and all that.
But my question is this. So apparentely I have yeast issues. Okay major issues. I recall before I got pregnant a lot of vaginal bacterial infections, but haven't had one since.(knock on wood). And I am so addicted to sugar still (but now is no where compared to before I was preggo with the years on Mt. Dew and candy). Well lately the sugar attacks have been raging. I am constantly hungry. And what do I find myself eating. Yup chips and candy bars and craving pop but none in the house, and eating the heck out of my icecream (at least it's homemade right?). I just don't understand why I am having all these issues lately.
Today i wanted to lock myself in a room and hide from the kids (my dd and my cousins dd). I was a horrible meanie all day long. Even to the cats.
I really don't want to live this way anymore. But the sugar is everywhere.
So, how do I correct this yeast issue. Does SCD fix that?

The public is generally unaware of the large amount of research on the beneficial effects of gelatin taken with food. Gelatin acts first and foremost as an aid to digestion and has been used successfully in the treatment of many intestinal disorders, including hyperacidity, colitis and Crohn's disease... anemia...diabetes, muscular dystrophy and even cancer.
Other important ingredients that go into broth are the components of cartilage, (Jane note: anyone hear of the arthritis cure of taking glucosimine and chondroitin supplements? they are abundant in cartilage.) which recently have been used with remarkable results in the treatment of cancer and bone disorders, and of collagen, used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and other ailments.
Jewish penicillin... modern research has confirmed that broth helps prevent and mitigate infectious diseases.
The test of whether your stock contains liberal amounts of gelatin is carried out by chilling the broth. It should thicken even to the point of jelling completely. If your broth is still runny, you may add a little powdered gelatin to thicken it. Bear in mind, however, that some people have reactions to commercially prepared gelatin, which will contain small amounts of free glutamic acid, similar to MSG.
...remedying infant diarrhea...
Chicken soup has a natural ingredient which feeds, repairs and calms the mucous lining in the small intestine. This inner lining is the beginning and ending of the nervous system. It is easily pulled away from the intestine through too many laxatives...food additives...parasites. [It] heals the nerves, improves digestion, reduces allergies, relaxes and gives strength.
