Need Help Understanding Follow-Up Bloodwork Results

Recommended Posts

I guess I will need to get both books and research them. I definitely don't want to have to mess with getting a yogurt maker & making the yogurt, so maybe I will go the sauerkraut route. Is that something you just buy already prepared?

Do you know how long it should take to know whether or not the diet is working? Thanks!

It's possible to improvise a yogurt maker. I have a one liter plastic jar with a screw on lid whichI I use. Put the yogurt makings in that and I wrap it in an electric heating pad set on the lowest or second lowest setting for 24 hours. Makes delicious yogurt. :) And easy to store in the fridge too. :D

You need sauerkraut with live bacteria. You can buy Bubbie's brand. My local health food store carries unpasteurized kimchee and fermented beets but the are super-expensive and making sauerkraut is pretty easy once you get the cabbage shredded. My digestion really evened out after a month or so on GAPS. Super-regular, no more random episodes of diarrhea, no bloating, no gas. Unfortunately the brain fog I was looking to fix didn't get better and something I was eating was triggering migraines so I'm reworking my diet again.
