  • I started by putting the drops on my toothpaste, but I love the taste of the brushing blend so I just use that now.

    • I may do that until the jar of homemade stuff is empty.

      • On another note, I need to do crockpot meals more often. It makes willpower only necessary for one meal a day and is great for easy cook and clean. I wonder if they make crockpot dividers, so I can do the side in there too,without it mixing.

        • Dinner was crockpot skirt steak with chile, and a side salad with lettuce, tom, cuke, and cado.
          I tried brushing the Dr Bass way last night. Hells bells, I should've started doing this years ago. Dentist visit has nothing on that level of feeling clean. Then again, I also scraped my tongue, mouthwashed, oil pulled and mouthwashed again (the second was because I hate the flavor of coconut oil.) Can't wait for the new brush and everything to come in.

          • Contemplating a true elimination diet. Not sure how much further to go beyond paleo. I should entertain the idea of removing nightshades, onion and garlic, as I eat those every day. I'm not sure I want to know if I'm allergic to one of those. A life without those would be utterly miserable.
            Cooking them appears to reduce the alkaloids by roughly half. I don't recall having issues with alkaloids like caffeine. .. I may just cut potatoes and tomatoes, as they have the highest content.
            Should I check eggs? I rarely eat them because Geek reacts to the smell in much the same way I react to the smell of popcorn. Out of respect to his allergy, I try not to eat them when we're together or at the house. Eggs wouldn't be hard to remove the rest of the way.
            Anything else paleo I should look at eliminating?

            • Looks like you're going autoimmune.

              Doing autoimmune for a month would probably be a good place to start. I'd say don't go super strict if you don't have to. Super strict to me would be doing the SCD, starting with a chicken soup w/ carrots & celery (you could use green onions for the flavor, instead of onions) and then adding foods in from there.

              • Yikes. I'd lose mustard, tomatoes, peppers, coffee, AND chocolate. I dunno. I should try it, given my thyroid. At the same time, yikes.

                • This paleo blogger/author has done autoimmune paleo to try and sort out her own thyroid issues. There are definitely bunches of others out there that should have tons of recipes.

                    There is this:

                    granted you needn't get it at Walmart.. it was just the first example I saw...

                    • Oh, fer frak's sake. Next week is my vampire appt. I know she'll bitch me out about my cholesterol again. I wonder if there's anything I can do in less than a week to artificially bring it down, just long enough for the test. Niacin and fish oil would help, dunno if it'd be enough. I wonder if the sulfite allergy was driving it up.

                      • I've been developing a sinus infection (AGAIN) for the past week or so, maybe closer to 2. Out of curiosity, I looked up home remedies and someone suggested putting oil of oregano in the neti pot, a single drop. So, being who I am, I put in two drops. (I got it on the way home for this and internal use.) Holy hells. Folks, it stings like nothing I've ever done, but I think I killed the infection in one shot. I'm still hocking up gunk, but my face doesn't hurt and I can breathe.

                        • Infection isn't killed, but it's a hell of a lot better.
                          Went for a walk earlier, and sprinted while I was at it. First time I've done sprints where I didn't need the inhaler or think I would pass out. I guess the Alvesco is worth it for that alone. Well, that and getting the elephant off my chest.

                          • I know someone who did that with garlic oil to kill a chronic one. Said it burned like hell and she was tasting garlic for a week without adding any to her food, but it killed the infection!
                            Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                            If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

                            • Today's list
                              -Tractor Supply, check prices and possibly buy dog food
                              - Goodwill
                              - Consignment shop, check dates accepting clothing

                              Another thing I noticed is that, after neti burning myself last night, my earplugs fit better and deeper, like I had popped part of the ear canal back into place. I felt both of them pop while I was netiing, along with losing that ear infection that had been threatening and hearing much more clearly. I gotta do the neti burn more often.
                              Still hocking up gunk. I may do another round of neti before I leave, just to make sure everything is convinced to move out.
