Topics I've Started

Oil Pulling

16 December 2008 - 01:49 PM

Day 5 for me on oil pulling for me. If you have never heard of it, google it "oil pulling". It is an ancient Ayurvedic form of detoxification and healing. It boasts many claims and I am primarily using it to improve my teeth and gums (something it supposedly excels at). It is inexpensive, perfectly safe and cannot hurt. So I am giving it a go and I know a few others are as well.

Day one I used Virgin Coconut Oil from "Coconut Oil Supreme". It is simply the BEST coconut oil money can buy. It smells like fresh coconuts and is pure white. Everything else I have ever tried smelled a bit of "toasted" coconut oil and had an off-white appearance. It was most evident when I bought Coconut Oil Supreme and compared it to my other supposedly virgin coconut oil. Not so, most coconut oils are heated and that makes it "toasted". I want the good stuff!!

Anyway, Day one and two were with coconut oil and I noticed nothing.

Day 3, 4 and 5 have been with cold pressed sesame oil. I can honestly say my teeth are much whiter (just as people all over the net claim). It does whiten your teeth. The coconut didnt whiten my teeth. The sesame did.

With this I have had some "healing" signs with an exacerbation of old symptoms for a few days. Hopefully they will clear up soon and I can get on with healing!

Just Found Out - Little Bro Has A Brain Tumor

09 December 2008 - 02:30 PM

Hey everyone....I just found out my little bro has a brain tumor. It is on his pituitary and they suspect it is "benign" even though it has completely messed him up physically and caused depression. His hormones are a mess....so I dont see it as "benign". They are still running tests. They put him on medication immediately to "shrink" the tumor and it is making him quite ill.

He is young at 36 and has a wife and autistic 10 year old son who thinks the sun and moon revolve around "Daddy". He is such a great guy and it breaks my heart to see him go through this.

Prayers needed and greatly appreciated.

For Dq1 And Dq3 (have Both Genes) - What Foods Are You Certain Bother You?

01 December 2008 - 07:48 AM

I am curious for those who have both DQ1 and DQ3 what your confirmed intolerances are? Looking for correlations. I am DQ1 subtype 6 and DQ3 subtype 7. I dont know if the subtypes make a difference. But if you have my exact genetic make-up, I am curious what foods bother you.

For me so far the ones I know for CERTAIN bother me:


Legumes - beans - peanuts - soy




**The above foods produce a consistent set of symptoms within 24 hours of ingestion. Some within hours.

Then there are foods that I am not 100% certain because it isnt consistent:

Most dairy - only eat 24 hour fermented goat yogurt where all of the lactose and casein is broken down
