              other taxes----xxx
              total tax-------9753.17

              And I still have to hire private contractor to get some types of garbage out.
              And I do not have children in school.

              • There is a Leptin Rx January February thread - look for that!

                I also put minimal caffeine in my sweet tea. And I ferment the heck out of it, so no sugar rush either.
                Kombucha has not just bacterial fermentation, but yeast, as well, so there can be some reactions you don't get from probiotics alone. It's still a mystery to me, too.

                I'm not 30 this year, but I had one of my worst ever days on 12/31, and a strong, strong sense on 1/1/12 that this is MY year for recovery.

                Yesterday I was browsing some WAP-friendly vendors at a conference, trying to ignore the "miracle tree!" MLM table by me, and one of the creepy MLM guys says, "Did you get some of our materials?" I picked up a newspaper to get him to leave me alone and he says, "No, take this one. That one's for weight loss" ... looks me up and down ... "You definitely don't look like you need that one."

I remember feeling like I was on fire and alive, happy and strong and somewhere in the past couple of years that slipped away. I found myself dancing with my son to the radio last night after dinner and again this morning.
                This is big. . It's the beginning of the end of the pit. It's coming!

My sleep is pretty bad, energy is low, some days are better than others but overall feel fatigued, skin is very dry, pee smells the same, have gained fat in my thighs and belly, very, very hungry, no cravings most of the time but didn't have them before, mood is up and down, etc. Shouldn't I be seeing *some* changes by now or am I being unrealistic?
                You have a lot to heal. Me, too, although you probably have even more. I don't understand the lack of solving the hunger, but it doesn't surprise me a ton you're not having the end of the others.

                I just marked 8 months on the reset, lol!

                  Sometimes people with thyroid issues have ringing in the ears that can be minimal and periodic to severe and all the time. I can't remember if you are one of the many thyroiders on here. I will get it so rarely that I don't really even notice it (once every several months). Otherwise, I don't know anything else about tinnitus.

                    About darkness 365 nights per year, and the merits, there is a fertility theory that you can influence ovulation and adjust your cycle (via ovulation induction) by using a night light or opening the blinds on certain nights of the month. Obviously, like MamaG described, timing with moon makes clearest evolutionary sense. Also, think of egg farmers who put a night light in the laying room for chickens, and they ovulate (lay egg) more than once a day (kind of creepy) when exposed to 24 hour light. It really seems to be a powerful hormone signal, light at night I mean.
                    Also looking at an egg induces chicken to lay another one next to it.

                    We had artificial eggs laying in nests for that purpose.

(I'm taking 4 drops of 2% Lugol's every day now, with selenium, zinc, and NAC -- will wait a week and move to five drops.)
                      iodine is no magic cure......the real problem is if you have a leaky gut all the other mineral things follow.......stop focusing in on the third steps and fix the damn gut!

                            I recently read Suzanne Somers' book and she mentioned a patch and I've read a lot about Dr. Kharrazian's glutathione cream as well. Anyone familiar with either of these products? They are really pricey, so I wanted to make sure they're worth it before I invest.
                            Anyone?
