I use EVOO on it. I've tried coconut oil before and it doesn't seem to help. I guess I could try it again, though.

There was just a discussion about this, perhaps on the NT site......
One of the ladies there had said that the contraindication comes from the strong deotoxifying effect of kombucha. Most conventional advice says stay away from it for this reason, but logic says that if you've been taking it all along before you get pregnant, you shouldn't suffer a really strong detox when you're pg, the idea being that you've already gone through the initial strong detox. I take it daily, and I'm considering taking it during pregnancy as well because it's such a great source of B vitamins.

On that note: Is there any reason to suspect that my very delayed ovulation is related to my new way of eating? I'm about 4 days late, which is unprecedented. I never did get the last hcg quant after my miscarriage 2 months ago - and I haven't given it a second thought until now because my cycles got regular again, and it just seemed so hysterically unnecessary. But I'm suspecting stress or the diet before I"m suspecting an incomplete MC anyway. Any thoughts? I've been slightly paranoid about inadequate B-Vitamins with having a grain and starch-free diet, but I haven't been taking a B-supplement.

I don't know about your specific situation; but I would not try to get pregnant on a diet low in folic acid, without supplementation: http://www.babycenter.com/refcap/476.html I don't know if you know of this information, but wanted to be certain. My understanding was that supplementing for at least three months in advance was preferable. I believe that I remember that birth control pills deplete folic acid. This link suggests that birth control (hormones) might interfere with absorption of folic acid. I speculate that a pregnancy (miscarriage) could do the same. http://parenting.ivillage.com/ttc/tt...,,3p5r,00.html

B- vitamins are very relevant to the immune system and stress too.

I have a blog.

Yup, that would be me.

If you're aleady on it, no reason not to continue- it will support your liver through the pregnancy and will lessen the morning sickness.

if you'd like to start it, start with a very low dose and worrk your way up very slowly to avoid the detox reaction. This will assist your liver in filtering the hormones and toxins you come in contact with.

Yes, go slowly. You want to avoid a detox reaction. If you build up slowly, it won't happen.

I attribute her skin health to a careful watch over her diet--it mostly consists now of soups, vegetables, fruits, meat, cheese, and a few soy foods like tofu and fermented beans, and tahini. Now that she is older my family and nosey friends and strangers are asking when I will give her rice and other grains. She has not had any at all, I fail to see the nutritional value in a cup of white rice, or a hunk of white bread. I am doing okay, right? There's no need for her to eat grains because she is getting enough fiber and carbs from vegetables and fruits-- I feel like I am doing preventive care, but everyone just thinks I am being dumb. And what is the point of eating cherrioes and crackers?
This is so wonderful Liane!!! I've been wondering how y'all have been doing and I'm so glad to hear from you.

Your proof is in your child, there is absolutely no reason to eat Cheerios and crackers except for laziness! All boxed cereal is not at all healthy... the high heat damages the fats and proteins and also creates acrylmides.

DDs main symptoms are eczema, poor sleep & undigested food in her stool.

I'm so confused.
Self diagnosis as I read more and more about it. Unless you have 1-3 firm brown stools a day with no discernable food and no gas/bloating, you have digestive problems.

How old is DD? Sometimes undigested food is common and normal in younger babes.
