Carla,

For some reason I dont see your avatars anymore. Its just a blank space. :huh:

Been that way for at least a week now...both my computer and my moms.

Carla...you've become INVISIBLE!! :P

Patti...I DO see you....I love the pics that show you smiling....very pretty! :)

Donna and Susan....love the artwork. I've never done any painting...I dont think I'm too creative with drawing and things like that. I'm really creative with scrapbooking though. :D

I wish I could post some of my scrapbook pages. Eventually I'm gonna need a 12x12 scanner for sure. Gotta get myself detoxed first....all the fun stuff is on the back burner. :rolleyes:

Now THAT is interesting. I HATE the heat. Anything above 85 makes me feel like I'm gonna die. When I say I am "cold" it's more that I have chills. I used to be able to tolerate heat but now it makes me feel like arse.

that describes me for a while now... I can't stand the heat anymore, certainly gotten worse in the past couple years... interesting about mercury vs. lyme in that regard...

however, I have had Raynaud's since high school and my fingers will frequently get numb and lose their color if I don't wear gloves (even sometimes when I do) during the winter... it's only my hands that react that way to the cold though... it doesn't even have to necessarily be that cold for my hands to react like that, maybe 50s, 60s even at times...

Could be something you ate?? I'm not really sure.

One time when I ate some leftover soup I got a HUGE swelling there on my left side. It was big and hard...like a big softball. :blink: I remember that I could hardly walk...the pain was really intense.

I never ate leftover anything after that!

Dont ever eat leftovers if you're sensitive to molds. That was the only time I can recall having a hard lump on my left side that was really painful. I guess it was massive bloating but I dont know why right there on the left side?? :unsure:

I'm not good with anatomy....still dont know exactly where my liver is, no clue where appendix is....just barely learned where my kidneys are. :rolleyes:

When that happened to me I just went to sleep to escape the pain and it was gone the next day.

I'm gonna repost this lecture by Dr. Klinghardt which is probably my favorite and I learned alot from it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One thing that is important for you to understand is - you can have metals in the cells, you can have metals outside of the cells in the connective tissue, you can have metals inside the blood vessels, you can have them in the kidneys, or we can have them in the gut wall.

Each one of these compartments requires one of these medications to move it out from there. They are not all working as effectively in all compartments. So - I call this the shuttle system. We use chlorella to shuttle it out of the gut into the stool and out.

We use either garlic, DMPS, DMSA, one of the sulfur containing drugs to move it out of the kidneys. Chlorella and DMPS have a very strong effect on the connective tissue. So we use one of those two to move it out of the connective tissue. We use DMSA or cilantro to move it out of the cell and from the cell wall. We have this shuttle system: we move it from the inside of the cell to the outside; from outside the cell we move into the kidney and in the gut wall, and from there we move it out of the body.

You have to understand each one of these steps. All of the symptoms I showed you are symptoms of extracellular mercury. The are not symptoms of intracellular mercury. Intracellular mercury creates chronic fatigue, creates cancer, creates genetic kind of stuff in children - where you see learning disability.

Outside the cells, it creates all this pain, swelling, redness, nausea, all the vigorous symptoms. So what happens when you detox somebody, you want to first unload the connective tissue; because if you detox the cells too soon, you move stuff out from the cells and increase the load in the connective tissue, and the symptoms increase. So what you first want to do - move it out of connective tissue, clean that up, and only then I do the detox from the cells.

By doing detox, very often we find that allergies go away. It goes hand in hand.

When you diagnose mercury toxicity, or toxicity from any toxic metals, remember that when we are talking about mercury, we are not excluding the other metals. We talk about mercury because it is the most obvious of the toxic metals. We found that tin, on a molecular basis, is probably a hundred times more toxic than mercury, in terms of its neurotoxicity. Nickel is very allergenic and has a lot of detrimental side effects. Aluminum in the brain, lead in the brain, we find often when people have seizures. With seizures, we find a focus of either lead or tin in the brain, etc. But you need to kind of take one metal at a time.

Insomnia - is one of the key symptoms we see in everybody.

Insomnia is mercury deposits in the brain, unless proven otherwise.

Numbness and tingling in the hands - these are more neurological symptoms. The key neurological symptoms are pain that is either combined with areas of numbness or is burning in quality. These are my criteria. I had a pain clinic for 12 years. I got onto the mercury issue through having a pain clinic and realizing that the patients that were not getting well were usually mercury toxic patients.

When you have mercury toxicity, you get viral infections, or fungal infections, or bacterial infections. The metals change the natural milieu - it renders the own immune system ineffective and now viruses, fungi and bacteria can grow in the disturbed environment.

The symptoms that we often experience are the symptoms caused actually by the parasites, by the viruses, fungi, by the bacteria, but the underlying cause is the mercury deposits in the tissues. Remember: numbness and burning.

When the pain is burning in quality or numb-like; there are areas you can touch and still feel, but it doesn't feel quite right; that is mercury unless proven otherwise.

Mercury in the spinal cord, or in the brain in the thalamus, in the center that regulates pain. The same is true for pain in the face: If it is numb or burning in quality, it's mercury, unless proven otherwise. I have found very, very few exceptions to the rule.

Then you have ALS-like symptoms and MS-like symptoms. With MS, don't get the idea that mercury is causing MS. What I believe to be true that mercury changes the environment and then the combination of viruses and other toxins that are trapped in the body because of the mercury are causing the MS illness or the MS-like symptoms. It 's not the mercury causing MS - it is not as simple as that. It is a disturbance of the environment and immune system that then expresses itself in that way. Removing the mercury usually is not enough to treat MS. You have to address the viruses, the fungi, you have to address the other toxins as well to get an MS patient better.

It is similar to the idea of "the last straw that breaks the camel's back" -- by removing the straw, that the back is going to be okay again. That's usually not the case - you have to do a thousand other things.

Then we have neck, oral cavity disorders: gum disease - gum disease itelf is often caused by mercury in the mouth. Loosening of the teeth. Foul breath. Metallic taste. Burning sensation of the face, of the lips. Amalgam tattoos (can be removed easily without surgery). Dizziness, vertigo, ringing in the ears, tinnitus, hearing loss, speach impairment.

We see a lot of that in children. Children who have any type of disturbance in their growth, especially when it is selective: children grow physicaly well, they are intelligent, but they have a speech impairment. Or they grow well and they are hyperactive. Or they grow well and they have a real disturbance with their eyes or their hearing. Those selective things are usually deposits of metals in the brain.

In children, it is still quite common here in the US to find lead in the brain - the lead issue is not dead yet. But what I found is usually small amounts of mercury that trapped big amounts of lead and other metals. You can either, for years, treat the lead; or you treat the mercury for a few months. Get the mercury out and the lead almost comes out on its own after that.

These are just a few ideas. Glaucoma, we find very often associated with mercury toxicity, but more commonly, Glaucoma in my experience is an infected tooth, or eye disease, especially if more on one side than the other. Deterioration of an eye usually is an infection in the jawbone. You have to find it and treat it.

GI effects - the whole list of food sensitivities - : that's been the big joke in our family of practitioners, when you do a food allergy diagnosis with a mercury patient, you are going to have out of 600 foods that you test, they are going to be allergic to 485 or 520.; there are very few foods left. The route that everybody else is going down is to leave the foods away. We detox the patient and let them eat what they want to eat. Because you will see that when you detox the patient that one food after another drops off the list of allergic foods.

Abdominal cramps; constipation. Constipation we see very frequently when the vagal ganglia that sit in the gut wall and wall of the large intestine that regulate the motility of the gut, that they are toxic with mercury. That is easy to treat by feeding the people large doses of chlorella - chlorella pulls out the mercury from the environment and free up the autonomic ganglia and the constipation goes away. That is a very common one, especially with women that have constipation - it is compacted by the hormonal differences between men and women. Women tend to be more prone to develop the mercurious colon, which is a constipated, dialated, amotile colon.

Effects on the heart: you have the abnormal heart rhythm -- the heart rhythm is regulated by two systems: one is the vagus - the right vagus, interestingly enough, that regulates the sinus node. When the vagus is active, the heart rhythm goes down; when the vagus withdraws, the heart rhythm goes faster. The sympathetics are in a minor way involved with the regulation of the heart rhythm.

For the vagus, it is very easy to detox - simply with an injection of a little DMPS onto the vagus nerve. We have been able to switch off cardiac arrhythmia just with one injection. People that had twenty years of cardiac arrhythmia - and then followed up with cilantro and drug uptake technique.

We find when we detox people with DMPS, the cholesterol uniformly goes down in the normal range. Cholesterol or the Type I Hyperlipidemia - the type I, is usually not genetic. It is usually heavy metal toxicity. It's not an illness on its own. We see this all disappear when we detox a patient.

So everyone with high triglycerides, where the HDL is low and the bad ones are high, that is usually heavy metal toxicity. ......Cholesterol comes down and the sodium level comes up. We found that the mercury toxic kidney is losing sodium. That's one of the wonderful things - you just do a normal lab test, you always have the sodium in there; if it's low and the cholesterol is high - those are two wonderful simple indicators that you can get that this patient is mercury toxic. What we see when we detox the patient with DMPS, the sodium level automatically comes into normal range, because the kidney stopped losing sodium.

Another simple way of monitoring whether your kidneys are toxic with mercury is that your pee is too light. The mercury creates a "too light" urine. You pee and it just doesn' get that full yellow ......smell that you should have. You know what you have done the day before, you wake up in the morning, you have been working out, you have been sweating, you have been eating bad, and your urine should really be smelly and yellow. If it comes out light yellow and nice and fresh looking, worry about it. You most likely have kidneys that are not filtrating properly.

These are just some clinical approach - you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure these things out, but they go so unnoticed and nobody speaks about them. This is the way you can monitor yourself. Another one: if your poop floats, you are not making the necessary pancreatic enzymes and are not digesting your fats and probably not absorbing everything else.

As we know, mercury has an effect on each enzyme system in the body and the immune system is dependent on functional sub-systems.

So every aspect of the immune system is down - we talked about the infections, cancer, autoimmune disorders; and there is some systemic effect to look at - headaches, allergies, skin illnesses; thyroid - usually it is a hypo-thyroid condition caused by migrated mercury, migrated from the teeth, to the connective tissue into the thyroid.

A very key symptom is cold hands and cold feet - in the morning you get into your car and the car is cold and drive for fifteen or twenty minutes and it takes ten minutes for the car to warm up; but it takes your hands then another hour afterwards to warm up. That's mercury toxicity until proven otherwise.

The autonomic nervous system injury from the mercury toxin is very serious and the ANS cannot respond properly to cold input or heat input; it has these delayed responses. It contracts the blood vessels; they don't open up for another hour even though your car is getting warm within ten minutes, your hands should get warm in ten minutes. That's a symptom that's almost predictably disappearing when you detox somebody for mercury.

Excessive perspiration with the feeling of being too cold, but you are sweating,; chronic kidney disease, kidney infections; when the kidneys harbor a lot of mercury as they usually do, they are prone to be the playground for a lot of bacteria, fungi and viruses, and you have to get the mercury out of it.

The whole hormonal system is affected by it. Any of you who are trying to mess around with DHEA or doing the saliva test to test for the hormones, you find that you benefit from taking DHEA or pregnenolone:

The reason our hormonal systems are brreaking down is twofold - one is the stress that I mentioned, the electromagnetic stress, the environmental stress, but the other one is that mercury selectively binds to the binding sites, the ligand sites, at the ionic channels in the hormone producing cells in the body.

So anyone with abberant hormones, especially chronic fatigue, low adrenal situation, very very often is mercury related and we know that, because when you treat the mercury, the DHEA levels come up, the testosterone level comes, the three estrogens normalize.

Weight loss or weight gain. Hypoglycemia - diet plays a big role in it when you eat a mostly carbohydrate based diet, pushing your insulin too hard. Beyond that hypoglycemia is a situation people are prone to with mercury toxicity.

How do you diagnose it. First of all you have to suspect it, and there are not many illnesses on this list here that are missing from all the illnesses. Our basic approach, you come to me with any illness, the first thing I look for is mercury.

I made some boiled veggies last night and ate them for breakfast. I also had some almond butter last night. sometimes I feel I have no more stomach muscle and taking laxatives to go contribute to loss of muscle as well, but I really, really have no choice right now. This makes it more painful to my bladder too. Does this mean no leftover chicken or meats as well rachel?

Lisa.....in case you missed this from my previous post:

Abdominal cramps; constipation.

Constipation we see very frequently when the vagal ganglia that sit in the gut wall and wall of the large intestine that regulate the motility of the gut, that they are toxic with mercury. That is easy to treat by feeding the people large doses of chlorella - chlorella pulls out the mercury from the environment and free up the autonomic ganglia and the constipation goes away.

That is a very common one, especially with women that have constipation - it is compacted by the hormonal differences between men and women. Women tend to be more prone to develop the mercurious colon, which is a constipated, dialated, amotile colon.

So you can see that mercury is most likely the cause for our constipation. The chlorella is good....but dont start out with alot. Hopefully if you can tolerate it...you'll be able to remove some mercury and eventually be alot less constipated. :)

Yes...I definately avoid all leftovers.

You know how leftovers always have that moistness...that condensation that sits on the top of the food?? Thats where mold grows...it grows VERY quickly on leftovers.

I only eat fresh food....its less covenient but I dont get those abdominal cramps or other symptoms caused by the mold content of leftovers. Totally not worth it to feel that way.

If you're eating leftovers all the time...it could be why you're in alot of pain. Not saying it will all go away but it might help to avoid the leftovers and see if it changes how you feel....even a little bit is better than nothing. ;)

good I am glad. SO those are cramps I have that bloat on the side. I am afraid I will lose my colon. I don't even want to eat no more. But I know that won't help matters. I will stay with the chlorella and take it little by little. It would be great for the constipation.

Dear Rachel,

The Candida is a major problem. The thing is with the blood sugar, it was not just the herx. I just ate before going to have my blood sugar and other basic bloodwork done. It was still low! It was only 67! :blink: That is not normal. Did your blood sugar do that?

My father gets dangerously low blood sugar. He must be where I get it from. That is why I grab the candy or other stuff. I am trying to eat healthier, though. Here is another strange thing: fruit does not seem to help my blood sugar like it should.

I think with the Candida, I should do a little at a time. A shock to the system is not good. I have made a list of what needs eliminated. Maybe each week, I will add or subtract what needs done. I am so toxic, my mother smelled vinegar on me the other day from my sweat!

The most problematic things are the digestive symptoms. They are the debilitating ones. However, the feeling of passing out, the heart racing, and fatigue can make things very hard to deal with at times. The nausea is the hardest thing to deal with. I was doing so much better until that stupid course of antibiotics! If the stomach issues were not a problem, I could work a regular job.

Thank you for posting the Lyme information. I think we all agree that TinCup is a great advocate. I also appreciate the links you provided. As soon as I get more school work done, I will watch them. Mercury and Alzheimer's do have a strong link. Those who ignore it will suffer.

Polyps could be a possibility. Are those the same as Fibroids, or something else? I wonder about this. I have had cysts on my ovaries before. I hope they are not back, but it could be any of these.

Dear Donna,

Those slippers sure do sound comfortable! I know mine would not be as comfortable. They have 3-inch heels on them! They are nice to have around the house, though. I wish I could treat myself to a pair.

The sugar is easier to go without when you do not eat it at all. A little goes a long way, sometimes. The cravings return whenever even the slightest bit gets in there. Even people who do not have a yeast overgrowth are addicted to sugar. It has addictive properties.

I love your painting! It is wonderful! The bird is very pretty, too. You have talent! You should keep it up!

Dear Andrea,

I have no clue about the whey! Rachel would likely have more information on this. I never even considered it. This is not my area of expertise. Mango had some good insight.

It is great to hear your brother is improving! I hope he sticks with the diet, too. My brother has always been overweight as well. I think the gluten has to do with his situation as well. He will not listen, though. You cannot force people to help themselves. He already has high BP, and he is only 31!

Talitha sounds like she has mercury issues. It is difficult to know for sure. The vet said something interesting. When I was worried our dog was being poisoned by something like Arsenic from the paint or floor he was licking, the vet said that it tends to change the color of their blood. I wonder if it is the same with humans?

Dear Mango,

Thank you for the etymology! That is interesting! It is also hilarious! Who would have thought pumpernickel meant that! I will make sure not to say that in West Germany! Your information on the whey protein was really helpful as well. Some of this stuff gets confusing!

Dear Carla,

Even though you have owned the house a while, it probably just now began feeling more like home! Redecorating always helps. You need to have that personal touch that says it is your place. I wish I could do that with my room! My mother will not let me, though!

I am glad you guys were going to the movies! That is a great movie to go see, too! My parents saw The Pirates of the Carribean the other day! They saw Knocked Up this weekend. I hope you guys had fun!

The Candida is really difficult to deal with. However, I think if I make a tackle plan, I should be able to do this better.

My body needs to be led into it more. I am seeing my doctor on Tuesday, so I will discuss this with her. I have no idea what she will want to do. The Lyme issue is a bigger concern at this point, though.

Dear Bev,

It sounds like your doctor friend is in the know! That is terrific! This is such a problematic disease. I think it is interesting that she has had symptoms. These issues are a major factor in whether or not patients get proper treatment.

Yep, I have those odor hallucinations as well! The come out of nowhere! I often smell my parents' cologne or perfume even when they are gone! You are just sitting there minding your own business, then there it is! At least I have not smelled skunk, though.

Wow! I need to write those words down! I cannot remember those so easily! It is unbelievable! We are just learning new words left and right! I may have to ask what those were again!

You are also right about not being able to leave Rachelville for long. You were only gone one day. You missed so much! We missed you! We are sucking you into the vortex!

Dear Susie,

I love your funky tree! I think it is neat! It reminds me of those posters from the 60s. Those are awesome! I really think it is great!

EW! Your dingos tried to eat a froggy! That poor little froggy! Our Standard Schnauzer used to eat them. Then, the next day, she would puke everywhere. She did not get a hold of them too often, because we made a point to not allow her to eat things like that!

Our dog now, he likes to stick just about anything in his mouth. He was after my lizards! I told him he cannot have my lizards! There are these cute blue-tailed ones that live under our step in the front of the house. Last year, the biggest one in the family had its tail right on my butt while I was sitting on the front step! They never get that close to people! I just said hello, and it looked up, and sat there a second, then went on its way.

We also get tree frogs on our kitchen window. They go up there to get the bugs. We have had three different sized ones up there at the same time. I thought we only had one, but then there were others coming up at different times that were other sizes! They are so cute!

Dear Judy,

We are glad you popped in! We are anxious to hear from you! That is so exciting about Jim and the art gallery! It must be really neat! In other news, I still cannot believe you went to ratemypoo.com! I will not go there, because I too, have a photographic memory and would not be able to get that nasty stuff out of my head. Some stones are best left unturned!

Dear Patti,

I am sorry to hear you had such a difficult day. That is the same reason I hardly ever go out! My stomach is always churning! The medication I take knocks me out. I cannot take it all the time. I can totally relate to the "crap-shoot". HUGS!

Dear Mia,

Smoked salmon is good! Now I am scared of it due to mercury! Why does everything have to be dangerous! Is tofutti really safe for us? I thought they used equipment that had foods made with gluten, too. That is what I read on the site.

Dear Rinne,

The Candida really does feel like it is running the show! I hate this! I am so annoyed about it. When I eat fruit, it seems to irritate my system more than the other stuff does. I have no clue why that would be.

The smoked salmon and all of that stuff sounds good! They are good in a creamy spread on crackers! It is been an eternity since I have anything like that! I am trying not to overeat fish, but it is lower in fat. My fat intake has to be closely monitored. Even the leanest cuts of meat seem fattening.

Dear Laura,

It is nice to hear from you! Yep, you are right, you cannot stay away! Even a short time away from Rachelville can make catching up difficult! We try to stay on top of things, too. It is not easy! There is so much going on! Come when you can!

Dear Murph,

I hope you did not think I was angry with you or anything. I just meant that Candida is harder to kill than many people in general think. It sounds like you and I have the same feelings towards food. It is so difficult. There are times I have been so bored with food, that I literally have to do all I can to not gag as I eat! You know what I mean? My blood sugar makes it terribly difficult. I do have a plan, though.

We are glad you included the Etymology stuff! It is very fascinating! I always like to find out where things came from! A lot of people do not appreciate this kind of thing. I do not know why. It is information I so nerdily enjoy!

You are right. This is a community where everyone loves each other. We try to help each other in any way we can. Supporting everyone is also essential to Rachelville. We are glad you joined in!

Sincerely,

Jin

Jin,

No no a 1000x no I didn't think u were angry w/ me. I was just making it clear that I know how hard it is. So much denying of food makes ME angry tho. I find myself daydreaming about all sorts of food. It's even sometimes gluten-free!!

Almost forgot (ok, did forget - editing post now), I do know exactly what u mean about having to try to keep from gagging sometimes - just forcing myself to eat. But gladly, it has been awhile. I think I must have gotten better at making things more enticing/flavorful. I use garlic all the time but I wish I'd gotten better by now at using ginger. I love it when it works. I sooooo love the smell of it when cutting into it.

Dear Rachel,

Thank you for posting all of that info on whey protein! It seems to be quite amazing stuff! Who would have thought detoxing would involve that? You just never know! You learn something new everyday!

The mercury information was scary! :unsure: Now I am more worried than ever! Even when I drink coffee, my urine is often really clear. I hope my kidneys are alright! The Reynaud's Phenomenon is something I have as well. The excessive sweating despite being cold is another thing.

Dear Lisa,

That is so awful! I hate to hear about the bad abdominal pain. This is really sounding a lot like diverticulitis. It is where little pouches in the left side of the colon get irritated. Like Rachel said, though, the leftovers are moldy. Even at 24 hours old, they begin to grow more mold.

This may be what is causing your bladder pain. Candida can manifest itself in so many ways. It sounds like this is one way your body responds to exposure of molds and yeast. Other things can severely irritate it as well. Make sure you are careful with the chlorella! ;)

Dear Carla,

You will be proud of me! I Carla'd the candy bars today! :) I was good! I did not eat too much. Mostly, I ate extra lean ground beef and some GV pasta sauce that is gluten-free! I also had some fruit. I am improving.

I love to paint with acrylics as well! Have you heard of Donna Dewberry's One-Stroke Painting? It is so fun! You still have to practice it, but it is so beautiful! She makes it so easy!

Dear Murph,

We are glad you came back! Hopefully, you will discover some answers on this thread as we have. I am glad we are able to share information, because it leads us on a good path. Without each other, we would have no one! Many of us were failed by the medical community, and sought refuge in a place where others would understand.

Dear Bev,

Thank you for the pronunciation guide! That word is not easy to figure out! :lol: I would love to use that to confuse people. That would be so much fun! I can see people's faces now!

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I swear I've had leftovers' mold affect me after just ONE hour - was having sort of "late seconds" I suppose more than true leftovers.

I'm fine w/ stuff I put in the freezer before it's cooled down much tho.

I'm all grrrr right now because I don't have an avocado. It would be perfect for a cold-smoked salmon (no brown sugar like regular smoked salm) & cado & red onion wrap using a brown rice tortilla. I have it all 'cept the cado. Oh and I've got the romaine. And EVOO & fresh squeezed lemon juice. Yum, but the avocado is crucial.

Now THAT is interesting. I HATE the heat. Anything above 85 makes me feel like I'm gonna die. When I say I am "cold" it's more that I have chills. I used to be able to tolerate heat but now it makes me feel like arse.

I don't do well with heat either. I don't remember it being this way. I never had air conditioning until my junior year of high school and then only til I moved out. I don't remember sweating as easily as I do now. Over here 80 feels real hot.

We do have air conditioning now. I don't know how I lived without it.

Just trying to figure out what else might be keeping me from getting well. Still incredibly fatigued from the littlest thing.

We're glad you joined us. :D

Yeah...from what I've read mold doesnt waste any time on leftovers. <_<

Within 2 hours there is already some mold developing...even in the fridge...and especially on meat.

I think in 24 hours time there is significant mold growth....not good for someone who's sensitive.

Every candida food list I've ever seen says to avoid leftovers...NO leftovers at all...unless frozen immediately.

For anyone with candida/mold issues...here's a good site with alot of info:

Dear Rachel,

Milk Thistle is HEINOUS! :o I am sorry that did not set well. At least the other things seem to be going alright for now. That is good. Keep us posted!

I have read the same thing about leftovers. They must be frozen. They do not recommend microwaving unless it is a last resort. It is one of those things, though. You must choose the lesser of two evils. :( It is a very unfair scenario!

Jin

Dear Murph,

Ginger has such a wonderful pungeant aroma! I love Chinese food, and it really is a simple trick to cooking with it properly. Ginger root can only be used in the stir-fries. You cannot substitute ground ginger for it! Not in a stir-fry! I plan on making some this week!

The thing is, ginger root must be washed thoroughly, then peeled. (Only the piece you are using at the time.) You need a 1-inch round piece that is about 1/8 of an inch thick. You may need two of these for one dish. You make sure to stir it around evenly as you stir-fry. I hope that helps!

In Chinese cooking, however, it is not just one ingredient that makes the flavor of any dish. It is the combination of two ingredients. It was said that in order to be a good cook, one must first be a good matchmaker. Confucius was who implemented the code of ethics and cooking processes, which few people know! Knives are not allowed at the table in China, because they are a sign of violence.

As far as flavors go, one great combination is ginger root and the garlic. I like garlic as well. I love when I get to use fresh. That is not often, though. In Chinese food, fresh is the only way to go!

Sincerely,

Jin

i remember reading deepak Chopra's Perfect Health a long time ago and it also said NO LEFTOVERS:The ayurvedic diet is primarily vegetarian and includes some dairy products such as yogurt (but not eggs and cheese). Fresh food is also recommended
