Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Now, I'm going to see if I can get to page 1012--maybe it's like a Twilight Zone episode and everything on that page never really happened.... :unsure: ,..or happened to someone else in a parallel universe. :o

Our "boring" ( :lol: ) Patti has been hanging around us too long!!!! :lol::P:lol: good one, I"ll have to check out that mystery page also......but I have to go and CLIMB into my tree to prune it, not so excited about that dreaded task.....many many more fun things I could be doing, as the staring dingos are reminding me!!!! :huh:

And in happier news......I slept 12 hours straight last night, :ph34r: And well, just blow me if I wasn't as tired as a weed-eating pig yesterday!!! Feeling much better now, thank you. ;)

happy Saturday, everyone!!

p.s. HEELS? you crazy ladies......I haven't worn heels since leaving my glamorous life in Monterey - - and still, heels were only about twice a year, even in those times. It's a flip-flop kind of life for me, always. Oh, Uggs in the winter.....and i am known to wear pajama bottoms in public :ph34r:

I don't know, maybe these just took a while for my body to react to. They also tested well at ART, but as we've seen with you, just because they test well doesn't mean our bodies won't react to them. That is just frustrating, lol. :lol:

YEAH... things can change pretty quickly as far as whether our bodies like something or not. This shows up often in ART from what I understand. Sometimes certain meds or herbs might be working really well but then at some point they arent as effective or you get allergic to it...the body just doesnt want it anymore so instead of helping it could be making things worse. Then you have to switch meds or supplements to something else.

I read that too many B-vitamins in the gut can really fuel candida....so it could also be that. I think sometimes our body might really want or need something so we can test well for it but then its causing problems because of other factors....like candida. Thats my "theory" anyways. :rolleyes:

I'm bummed because for some reason I never saw the pic with the leaves. :(

I dont know how I missed it. :huh:

Right now I'm on my computer with not the best quality screen but I'm seeing you wearing a jacket with a hood??

Oh well...I'm sure it was totally cute....all your pics are adorable including the one I'm seeing now. :)

I put up 2 new pics.....the one in my profile is my first visit with Santa. :D

Yeah......happy Cinco De Mayo!!! :D

It was so fun at work yesterday because they were playing Spanish music in the store....it felt totally festive. It gets kind of boring listening to the same stuff everyday so it was a nice change. :)

I primarily listen to latin mush anyways...I'm usually wearing my headphones in the morning (until it gets too busy)....but yesterday I didnt listen to my own music cuz the stuff they were playing was really good. :)

It did make me wish I was going out dancing and could have Coronas and margaritas though. :(

Susan...I have no problem going out in pajama bottoms....but usually only to the grocery store or gas station...stuff like that. B)

I'm kind of disapointed in the weather today...its suppossed to be about 80 outside but its soooooo windy. It looks cold because of the wind..I dont even want to venture out there. :(

I hate wind and if I can *hear* the wind...I know its pretty bad out there. <_<

Its suppossed to be 90 tomorrow with no wind...so I cant wait for that!! :D

Thanks Rinne! Well, I just had my annual exam and nothing came up there. The LLMD I saw is running a vitamin/mineral panel I think so I'll know more from that--but not until the 15th when I see him next.

I take a liquid B vitamin and a sublingual B-12, plus a multiple which has some Bs in it. The multi is a tablet and I'm going to see if I can take the liquid one that Scott suggested in my ART session--maybe that will absorb better. Anna (BioSET lady) sells it now at her clinic so they can test it before I buy. :P I wouldn't care how much sleep I get if I felt rested and I USED to feel rested even on 5 hours a night, so this is definitely different, lol. I've never been a good sleeper, but I've always felt rested and had lots of energy, this is just very different.

In addition to those supplements, Anna has me on something called adaptocrine which is supposed to help the energy. She is also starting me on NT Factor as soon as they get it in...it's been on backorder forever. Scott also suggested Transfer Factor for the lyme, but that has colostrum in it so I have to check if that is okay to take with a casein intolerance.

Glad to know that you are on top of the whole B thing. I had problems with the regular health food store B's but the sublingual seem fine.

Me three Bev. :):P

Me four. :)

.........

He also gave me this really interesting article "Bell's Palsy of the Gut and Other GI Manifestations of Lyme and Associated Diseases" which blew my mind because I was thinking I had motility issues and this article explains why I might!

I'm pretty tired (he's an hour away and it was a 2 1/2 hour appt so it took me like 5 hours total) but I feel much more optimistic about things then I did yesterday. :)

.......

Thanks for the reminder about Bell's Palsy of the Gut, it really sounds like me, I've had times when it seems like everything just stops working.

Glad to know that you are feeling more optimistic. :) Hugs.

Dear Rinne,

I will certainly let you know when the site is up. I am busy trying to get some mail-outs ready for a few local places. They could be good clients. Some of the items I sell are very unusual. I can literally furnish you whole house or apartment! :lol: I have furniture, scented and decorative candles (many with lead-free wicks), toys, cookware, nesting baskets, collectible dolls, MP3 player cases, luggage,....

That sounds really interesting.

........

Gosh--is anyone else as bored with me as I am :lol:

I am definitely NOT bored with you but I do know what it is like to be bored with me and my illness. :lol: I quit phoning friends or even returning calls at a certain point, probably about when I wasn't here either :ph34r: because I was just so tired of having only "pain" to share or maybe that was only being a "pain". :lol:

I was just wondering how to keep calorie intake and weight on with so many restrictions? I need a 2,000 calorie diet and I am only eating about 700 to 900 calories a day. I am eating more now but I need more calories but don't know what to eat. I always feel bloated and constipated and I am afraid to eat. Any suggestiong? Any safe weight gainers I am desperate! I am now hypoglecimic. When I eat starches and stuff I get depressed and sleepy in seconds. But I need this for some weight! So confused.

Nuts have worked for me, organic almond butter and coconut milk. I make a chicken stew with onions, garlic, ginger, coconut milk and almond butter that I serve with broccoli. It would be great with rice if you can eat that.

<----- me, laying in a pile of leaves in VERMONT...gee wonder where I could have picked up a tick, lol. :lol:

I love this picture, I've spent a little time rolling around in the leaves myself.

Donna, love the new picture.

I'm like the rest of you ... on normal days it's comfy shoes ... I was just looking at my Memphistos and realized, I really need a new pair, these are not going to hold up for a fourth summer. But, when Adam and I go out, or on Sunday, it's high heels. I'm also a Born fan ... just bought two pairs a couple weeks ago when I had my shopping spree. :ph34r: I needed a black pair AND a brown pair! :lol:

Need, I do understand that kind of need.

I bought a pair of Italian gold high heeled sandals that I swear are not intended to be walked in, no they are mere ornaments dangling at the end of my, once I have them on - gorgeous legs. :lol: I feel that when I am wearing them I should simply be carried from one perch to another so that these beautiful shoes may be admired by as many as possible and I for the audacity to wear them. :lol::ph34r::lol:

I have never been a heel girl I am all about comfort - jeans and sneakers!!

Mia....same here. :)

Except I dont wear sneakers all that much anymore. I wear boots and Uggs mainly in the winter and sandals/flipflops in the summer. I do love getting dressed up for special occasions and I'll wear heels but I usually end up taking them off....especially if I'm gonna dance. :P

All my life I had huge collection of sneakers but now its more boots and cute sandals...or some dressy type shoes.

Susan...I have no problem going out in pajama bottoms....but usually only to the grocery store or gas station...stuff like that. B)

:lol: Um, yes, clarifying here, pajamas only to grocery store, gas station, Blockbuster and possibly Target but no more than that, I do wear actual clothing when out in public, normally. :lol:

Rachel - - the weather - - - :lol: of course I am LOVING this blustery spring day and the coolness and all of the clouds, I know you are waiting for the scorching heat and I am DREADING IT WITH EVERY FIBER OF MY BEING and wondering why I live here? ...... :huh:

Rinne - - you are just the funniest with your golden heels! Perhpas you should be carried around on a Cleopatra-like bejewelled perch, by nearly-nude muscular men....... :rolleyes:

OKAY - - scientificness needed here - - - looks like I am going to need two root cannals. :angry::(

CHA-CHING....... THIS IS REALLY HEINOUS!!!!!!!! what can you guys tell me about this? I am heating my salad and cereal in the microwave, just to be able to eat things......the pain is becoming nearly unbearable.....even when I laugh or smile and feel the air on these two molars - - OUCH!!!

Rinne, the shoes sound divine!

Susan, I have pain on one of my teeth, too, from both heat and cold. It has a lot more of the root exposed since it's been moved by the braces. I think I'm going to need some gum work to get it fixed.

My ortho has me using Sensodyne, have you tried that? It helps some.

Do you use tartar control toothpaste or whitening toothpaste? They can cause tooth sensitivity.

Dear Morgan,

It is so nice to meet you! I am glad you had a great birthday. That purse is awesome! You should have fun with that! We all look forward to seeing you more on the thread!

Nice to meet you too :)

And heals...I love them :rolleyes: That was one of the things I missed when I got to college... I couldn't wear heals as often as I could when I was at home :( Unless I was willing to walk across campus in them. haha

Last week I bought a new pair of heals. When I tried them on, the first thing I thought of them was that they were sort of short. They were probably 3 inches maybe 3 1/2. But I showed them to the girls next door, they thought they were so high. lol I tested them next to my normal heals and had to insist that for me they were short.

OMG! :o I DO want to clarify and clear up my earlier silly comment!!!! I DO NOT THINK our dear Patti is boring!!! Just letting everyone (and patti) know that I was being silly (as always)! :)

Patti, boring. Hah, that cracks me up. But I do know whatyou mean...and what Rinne meant when she mentioned it.....I quit contacting friends also, for a while, when *I* was boring in the everyday sameness of my depressions, in the past......I lost a lot of people in my life as a result, too. :(

oh well, today is a happier day. Back outside......

:)

p.s. thanks for the sensodyne info! But sadly I am WAY beyond that.....there are huge cavities in each of these molars and most likely, root/nerve damage.

p.s. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, MORGAN! :)

Its is frustrating and yes BORING!! I never thought the most exciting thing in my life would be that I made pizza and didn''t get really sick yet that is the most exciting thing thats happened to me in months- yes not exactly an exciting life.

There are a lot of frustrations, slow going, improvements, whatever, but we aren't bored with anyone here.

Our "boring" ( :lol: ) Patti has been hanging around us too long!!!! :lol::P:lol: good one, I"ll have to check out that mystery page also......but I have to go and CLIMB into my tree to prune it, not so excited about that dreaded task.....many many more fun things I could be doing, as the staring dingos are reminding me!!!! :huh:

That does not sound like fun. What do the girls want to do?

I'm kind of disapointed in the weather today...its suppossed to be about 80 outside but its soooooo windy. It looks cold because of the wind..I dont even want to venture out there. :(

I hate wind and if I can *hear* the wind...I know its pretty bad out there. <_<

Its suppossed to be 90 tomorrow with no wind...so I cant wait for that!! :D

We are dying up here if it hits 90. We love the wind, breeze to cool us down. Typically when it's that hot the wind isn't blowing. <_<

OKAY - - scientificness needed here - - - looks like I am going to need two root cannals. :angry::(

CHA-CHING....... THIS IS REALLY HEINOUS!!!!!!!! what can you guys tell me about this? I am heating my salad and cereal in the microwave, just to be able to eat things......the pain is becoming nearly unbearable.....even when I laugh or smile and feel the air on these two molars - - OUCH!!!

Susan, you need to move up our way. Sounds like it is much more suited to your weather tastes. :)

As far as root canals I've read enough bad things about them that I'm having mine pulled. Have you looked into the possibility of pulling them and putting in implants. They are pricey from what I can gather. I'm not putting in an implant since I don't have the money to do the crowns I need on top of that.

Can you check with a biological dentist or mercury free dentist for pulling the teeth? Do you even want to do that? You've got to see someone who is familiar with preventing cavitations (they've got to scrape the bone socket).

Donna and Rachel, cute pics. :)

Dear Carla,

There is good news. You do not need a catalog to shop! Frederick's is online. You can order that way! Your boys will never have to see them! My brother loves those ladies. Sometimes if I have an extra catalog, I will give one to him. I prefer not to think about what he will be doing with it. :lol: You know guys.

Dear Donna,

Your body only produces healing hormones from 10pm to 2am. Sleeping during those hours is ideal for recovery. I have sleeping problems as well. I am always on a different schedule it seems. I will sleep normally for a week or two, and then get on a strange schedule like waking up at midnight and going to sleep in the afternoon. I tried melatonin and some other things over the years, but it did not do me any good.

Dear Mia,

I love my sweats, too! They are my general wardrobe! :lol: They are comfy. I love flip-flops.

Sneakers are another favorite of mine. There are some days when nothing else will do! It is good to hear you were able to get away with eating something good the other day! That is progress! :)

Dear Morgan,

Walking around campus in heels would be bad for your feet, anyway. You have to run all over campus. It just is not practical. I have some awesome high-heeled boots. They have chains around the ankle, and are 2 3/4 inches high. They look like biker boots! I love them! I should put a picture on here with me in them.

Dear Patti,

You know we love you! We never tire of your wonderful presence, or your Birkenstocks! :P Those shoes are the best for your feet! If you like those, you should try Okibashi sandals. They are very comfortable. They massage your feet as you walk! The price is not shabby, either.

Dear Rinne,

I sell pretty much anything you could use! I have a toaster, a coffee maker (12-cup), a full cookware set, a wok set, Asian decor, incense, you name it! You know what would be really neat? Later, when we both get things going, maybe our companies could give coupons for each others? I could give my customers Rinne Bar coupons, and you could give yours Trippin' Fish coupons! Businesses who work with each other tend to do better.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

Jin, years ago my mother bought something at Fredericks, and apparently they copied her address from the check because they sent the catalogue to us after that... it kind of gave away her secret. :o

I believe I'm starting a herx ... so much for the short run of feeling good. :( I don't know if it's the new meds or my regular herx, which wasn't due to start till Wed.

BioSET day...nothing earth shattering, but a couple of things came up again...uterus, fibroids and BUG BITE/insect!!!! I made sure I mentioned to Susan again that that keeps coming up and so she is going to test me for insects.

On a more exciting note....we FINALLY got to foods today. There was a lot obviously. She also tested me for dairy, but she was afraid my brain wouldn't be able to hold it all...fortunately it did today and my energy was much higher than it had been. I still can't eat anything yet though...there is a whole process that we're supposed to use to add things in, but I have to reread the stuff...it will be weeks before I can add anything I think. :(

I also saw Scott the ART guy there, and got to chat a bit with him and his friend which was nice. I mentioned in a very brief way what Denise had said about why I wouldn't show lyme in the BioSET testing and why he could still pick it up in ART and he was very interested in that. His friend said it must be like the blood tests and why some people don't show positives on the blood tests until they've been on antibiotics for a while...the immune system has to be well enough to respond, lol. He is seeing Dr. S on Monday for some followup testing...I forgot to ask how often he has the followup testing done.

Oh, Donna, you can't get to 1012 because we locked you out ... we were talking about you and didn't want you to know what we were saying!!

:P That's the closest smilie to a sticking out tongue, lol. :lol:

Donna, this post of yours was on page 1012 ... it's very odd you can't get there.

Yep, I know it. I couldn't get there last night and couldn't get there this morning...it gives me a google search page whenever I try to go there and I've tried a couple of different ways of getting there too. :P

And in happier news......I slept 12 hours straight last night, And well, just blow me if I wasn't as tired as a weed-eating pig yesterday!!! Feeling much better now, thank you.

:lol:

YEAH... things can change pretty quickly as far as whether our bodies like something or not. This shows up often in ART from what I understand.

I put up 2 new pics.....the one in my profile is my first visit with Santa.

I'll put the leaves picture up in my personal picture page... I'll ask Dr. Shaw about the B vitamins when I see him...

I bought a pair of Italian gold high heeled sandals that I swear are not intended to be walked in, no they are mere ornaments dangling at the end of my, once I have them on - gorgeous legs. :lol: I feel that when I am wearing them I should simply be carried from one perch to another so that these beautiful shoes may be admired by as many as possible and I for the audacity to wear them.

Sounds tres chic!

I'm making some pretty significant discoveries today looking back on my journals! :o

Seems like I've done this a million times and each time things get more and more clear...I think after today things couldnt possibly be more clear. :blink:

I've been getting that "ovary pain" off and on lately along with the head swelling, eye disturbances, bloating, loose stools, gasiness, etc. This is only since I've stopped eating ice cream and introduced some other foods. <_<

I'm pretty sure more than 95% of my reactions to foods is caused by mold. I cant believe I could be this sensitive to mold but I know mold can be a serious problem for people with toxic illness.

Theres stuff I could never figure out until today. One is beans....major problems with beans. I used to try to cook pinto beans, lentils, kidney beans, bean soup etc. Every time it was bad results. I would get the head stuff, bloating, gas, cramps, coated tongue, etc.

I sort of gave up on trying to figure it out and chalked it up to feeding candida...but then why are multiple pints of ice cream...loaded with sugar and dairy not giving me this reaction?? :unsure:

It finally clicked in my head. MOLD. :o

Beans have to soak and then slow cooked and then I dont usually eat them all right then and there...they get stored in the fridge...where of course they become moldy. <_< Leftovers always contain mold. I realized how everytime I ate stuff that had been put in the fridge...I open the conatiner and theres moisture...thats how mold grows!! EEEEK.

So I go through 2 years of journals and it all adds up.

Peanut butter.....this one is serious for me and probably caused more stomach distress, cramping than anything else.

Celery...could never figure this out?? :unsure: I read that celery is one of the crops they have a hard time with controlling toxic mold growth. :blink:

Cereal....ever single one I've ever tried. Cereal grains are moldy. :(

Digestive enzymes...I was taking these from the beginning so didnt notice how badly they affected me until I stopped taking them and havent been able to take them without getting worse ever since. They are grown on mold.

All packaged snacks like Glutino bluberry breakfast bar, Lara bars, macaroons, dried fruits, Pamela cookies, etc...all contain ingredients high in mold. They all made my tongue tingle and burn slightly.

Yogurt, cream cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream...high in mold.

Applesauce...most brands cause tingling on tongue and the other symptoms. I was only able to eat one brand but it was expensive and got discontinued. :(

I would think applesauce is high in mold since its made from very ripe apples. <_<

Nuts and nut butters same type reactions...tingling on tongue, head swelling, blurry eyes, etc.

Corn chips and all other snacks containing corn. Organic popcorn which I popped myself didnt cause as severe symptoms but still caused imflammation in my head, shoulders and back.

Grapes....they must be high in mold because they cause the same bad symptoms.

Anything fermented....saurkraut, pickles, etc.

Honey....high in mold content.

Hot dogs, sausages and those type of foods which tend to harbor molds.

Fruits and veggies....pretty much all of them but reactions arent consistent. It must vary depending on how fresh they are...the more "ripe" the more mold/yeast. A few do cause consisent reactions....grapes, mushrooms, celery, banana, melons and soft fruits.

When I tried a "salicylate free" diet it said the only safe fruits were pears and green apples but they had to be extremely ripe to decrease salicylates. All foods needed to be riper than normal to reduce salicylates so I was letting my food ripen...putting the apples and pears in bags till they got super soft.

No wonder the diet didnt work...I got dramatically worse!!! :o

I dont think there is a single food or reaction in all of my journals which cant totally be explained by this. :blink:

These are some "less obvious" foods which I suspect must have very high levels of mold due to my reactions written in my journals and the ones I remember as being pretty bad.

Ghee....gave me a problem everytime.

Glutino flax bread....actually everything I tried from Glutino I reacted very badly to. :huh:

All of Amy's dinners...although I didnt always get immediate reactions....I could eat some stuff for a few days before I started getting sick.

Buckwheat....HEINOUS

Quinoa...even more HEINOUS

Blue Diamond almond crackers...mold type reactions.

Edward and Sons rice crackers

So those are some of the foods that got me really sick but I had suspected cc at the time.

When I had my ultrasound and the "alien baby" was discovered ( :lol: ) I had been eating those Edward and sons crackers, jam, dried fruits and I had eaten quinoa cereal earlier that day. I think they're all moldy and thats why my intestines were freaking out. :blink:

I dont think I would have ever suspected mold had it not been for Anna stressing how bad this stuff is showing up in my testing and how its my biggest problem. Also it was shown in BioSET to be affecting all of my body systems...basically every part of my body and every organ seemed to affected by mold.

Yeah if I wrote out all of the symptoms I get it might be longer than this post is... :blink:

I think it definately causes imflammation in my gut and probably causes other intolerances in the process. Its when I've gotten myself into trouble with these foods and the enzymes that I've dramatically lost weight. My only week of vacation last year I was really sick and lost 10 lbs....thats when I blamed sweet potatoes and yams.

Looking back...I was eating tons of sweet potatoes as well as massive amounts of ripe fruit (including melons), brown rice, E & S crackers AND I had just started taking enzymes again. :blink:

Even though Anna told me all this at least a couple months back....I didnt realize until now how serious this mold thing is. :(

Now I believe its the *main* thing causing my reactions.

Its not possible to avoid mold completely but I'm gonna seriously do the best I can. I think my ice cream didnt contain much mold at all but it feeds candida and I think thats actually fueling my sensitivity to mold...if that makes sense.

So no moldy foods, no sugar to feed candida and Im gonna stay on top of it with Nystatin 3x a day.

I'm thinking because of the impact mold is having on my body it just might be the reason for my problems with not detoxing and causing problems with my pathways. I think I might start doing alot better with my other treatments if I control candida and dont eat foods which contain mold. :D

I'm definately gonna ask Anna on Wed. if she thinks this is why I'm having so much difficulty.

It clearly does affect all of my body. This is just the main symptoms I get..

Head swelling/pressure

Joint pain....mostly jaw but also feet and hands

Bloating

cramping or "ovary" pain

alternating constipation and loose stools

sensitivity to light/blurred vision/burning

skin eruptions

coated tongue

burning on skin and in mouth

swelling of nasal passage

headache/migraine

excema...only on my fingers

pressure in ears

brainfog

mouth blisters...yup I finally figured out why I get these!!! :o

imflammation in entire body...but especially upper body and hands.

fluid retention

even hairloss seems to be related to this!!! :blink:

Sounds like it COULD be it Rachel...and by the way, I've been told by two different allergists that grapes are high in mold, as are melons, and most of the other stuff on your list.

I have to ask Dr. S about the digestive enzymes....they (BioSET) really, really, want me to take them. I think even Dr. S mentioned taking them, but if I have as big a mold problem as I think he thinks I do, then wouldn't that just be counter-productive? :blink:

:o OMGOSH!! It is so windy here...

So, when I got home from BioSET I started cooking dinner, which means I had to open my door (as I often do when I cook :lol: )...it's been about an hour so I figure the house is sufficiently aired out and I can hear voices out there anyway so I get up to close it and see a police car out there which usually means my neighbor across the street is drunk again ( :lol: ), but I see the policeman is talking to someone in a car, then I look behind them. A HUGE tree fell over across the road! It's blocking the whole street! Holy windtunnel batman! The tree isn't dead either...it's a green and healthy! I have a HUGE tree right in front of my door! :o

Yeah...and it very much seems like the more I eat moldy stuff the more I react to other less moldy foods, chemicals etc.

In my journals whenever I had written that my sensitivities to perfumes were increasing dramatically...it was always when I was getting the other symptoms as well and also when I'd been eating those foods I listed. <_<

Anna doesnt want me taking any enzymes. Well....she does think enzymes are important but when I told her I think I react to them she tested me for all the main enzymes and yup...she said I was reactive to every single one. She said I cant take them and its because of mold. :(

Based on my own reations to enzymes I definately think its counter productive to take them if you're sensitive to molds. That same week I was on vacation and lost 10 lbs. I was taking the enzymes before every meal and even snacks.

I was taking them out of the capsule like I do with everything and one time as soon as I put the enzyme powder in my mouth a blood blister appeared!! :blink:

I couldnt imagine why the enzymes would cause it :unsure: ....so I figured it must have been something I'd eaten earlier...and it just happened to show up right at that moment. :rolleyes:

Glad you got to talk to Scott for a bit. I got his new newsletter....he talks about some changes he's made with treatment...he's taking Transfer Factors now....he says they may help to support the body

and by the way, I've been told by two different allergists that grapes are high in mold, as are melons, and most of the other stuff on your list.

and another thing...if you look at all the processed gluten-free snacks, bread, cereals, etc.....they're all sweetened with grape juice, pear juice, honey....they have all this moldy stuff like raisins, nuts, etc.

Plus they dont have all the preservatives....I remember at the beginning of this thread alot of saying we feel even worse eating the gluten-free stuff. I think this could be why. <_<

gluten-free stuff would harbor more mold.

Its like trading one evil for another. :(

Scott recommended Transfer Factor for me too...I bought some today but haven't decided if I'm going to take it yet. I think that's the one that has colostrum in it and I haven't decided if there is enough casein in there to cause problems or not. Anyway, it tested very well in ART, but Anna hasn't tested it yet.
