  1. Domesticactivist, I am going to check your blog for recipes. I have been reluctant making changes in my diet but I am trying to be more open to Gap, paleo while feeling depressed already mourning the food I will have to bury and forget about.

  2. Hi, thanks for all the helpful GAPS info you have posted :). Quick question, if you dont mind: I'm vegetarian & would like to do gaps, I am prepared to eat fish to make the boths - do you think fish stock/broth alone could be as effective (altho perhaps take longer) as using meat/chicken offal etc.

    Many thanks!

    Need Help With A Diet

    We use the Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil. Our daughter takes the Green Pastures Butter Oil/Fermented Cod Liver Oil blend. My naturopath started giving me B vitamin shots. This is a good way to supplement it because it doesn't...

    Need Help With A Diet

    I can't believe I missed this thread! You've already gotten good advice. Our family has been on the GAPS diet for a year and it has worked wonders for each of us in different ways. I highly recommend doing the introduction GAPS diet....

    Need Celiac Doc For Pregnancy Check Ups!

    Whether this can work depends partly on where you are, but I used midwives for both my pregnancies and deliveries at home. My midwife's husband was a naturopath which worked out great. It was about a tenth of the cost of seeing a regular...
  9. I know the feeling! I never want to leave my kids and fear for them when I'm away (or they are). When we started making our changes it was especially hard because they were going back and forth to their dad's house, and I had to trust him...
  10. I hope you tell all those drs exactly what made the difference! Maybe they'll eventually think to tell others What a happy surprise!
  11. Yay! Congratulations! That could definitely confuse your symptom-tracking Is it your first baby? Any idea when the baby is due? I bet your doctor will be surprised!!!

    Recently Started gluten-free Diet

    Ps my add got much better gluten-free and came back worse than ever during my two month challenge. Same with my nonceliac daughter. My son's ADHD cleared up as did his extreme dyslexia. This really does affect our minds!

    Recently Started gluten-free Diet

    Your post isn't too long at all welcome! I felt horrid when I first went gluten free. Part was withdrawal and part was that I tried some gluten free products that didn't sit right with me. I've gotten the vertigo (dizziness) from medications...
