    Yes, just check out the link that kiwilauren posted and you can google them, too. There's actually a lot of info on the web. earthclinic.com has a whole section devoted to castor oil

    You can get the flannel and the oil from nearly any health food store and iherb.com also carries both. I'm having fun learning about castor oil- it supposedly helps stretchmarks and age spots!

Since you're not eating eggs (which are a big source) you could either take fish liver oil Vit. A (or cod liver oil) or eat liver/take dessicated liver powder.

    You could add glutathione cream (Oxicell) or NAC to help reduce inflammation and modulate the immune system.
    Thanks Hazyjane. I do eat liver a couple times a week mostly beef liver. This week it is chicken livers wrapped in bacon. Thats on dinner menu again tonight. That would do it for some Vit A?
    I do have some N Acetyl Cysteine 600 mg. Take 2/day? Will look into some glutathione cream. Anything transdermal for inflammation is what I am looking for with having digestive absorption issues.
    So in addition, I would still need a multi V?
    Thanks so much for your help.

    I don't bother with a multi. My regimen looks pretty similar to yours I think as long as you're eating liver on a regular basis, you're good.
    Apex Oxicell glutathione cream is what you want (you can even put some on your thyroid). You can get it online from several vendors. You might not need the NAC if you use the cream (one less thing, right?) If you are taking NAC, take it with vit. C for the best results.

The brain is expecting the signal so it appears as a sensation to the women who use HCG from the unopposed spinal cord receptors in the CNS. HCG, in my opinion, is a partial agonist to this ancient pathway. My bet is if HCG was tested in a colder climates, in human adult, s it would be might be beneficial for weight loss because it would use leptin and alpha MSH as its tailwind hormones to induce more permanent fat burning while increasing TRH in the brain. In my opinion, using CT is a far better option, period.
    Oooo, HCGers get all the misery of feeling cold with none of the benefits. Ick!

    Yep, already been through the come-to-Jesus moment with that one. I don't love the idea of my organ being systematically destroyed, so hoping the cold is doing its job STAT!

    I do still wonder whether hyper makes sense out of those days, though - I'm not manic, just the way I used to be. Not shaky or bouncy, just ... the way I used to be.

    I know just what you mean. This describes well the way I feel the last few years, vs. how I want to return to feeling!

    Corrections from others? Agreement??
    How is that ratio calculated? I saw someone that prog/est should be 200-300, and of course, you have to make the units match. But I don't know if that's what we're looking for here.

    Also, any chance that white spots on the skin will be reversed with LR and CT? I don't think it's vitiligo. It looks more like Idiopathic Guttate Hypomelanosis or plain pigmentation to me.
    Ooo, thanks for the name! I totally have these, and they've come in the last 2-3 years, IIRC. I didn't know it had a name! I'm certain it means something.

    Okay, results ...
    Low sIgA is meaningful; I remember reading that a lot of people get low anti-gliadin results simply b/c they're deficient in sIgA in general. Since I wasn't deficient, I didn't read much on it, but definitely something to look into. Your anti-gliadin sIgA is borderline positive, so it is almost certain that the reason it's not higher is b/c you're deficient in sIgA in general. You definitely have a wheat problem, but you probably already knew that!

    Don't know what the AAC is.

    Looks like we're in a similar boat - wheat issues, none of the dysbiosis we expected. Have you tried giving up FODMAPs? Of course, you had that incident where just broth made you bloated, so I don't know what's going on there at all.

    I started the CT Sunday with the face dunking. I then progresed to the ice packs. I seemed to tolerate them well, so I jumped in the tub yesterday for about 20 min. I was glad for how long I was able to stand it. My appetite was definitely diminished yesterday. I slept really well last night, like really sound. Today I decided to lay down in the tub on my back with legs elevated. Yesterday I did the legs to up above the belly button. I had a really hard time today and was only able to be there for nine minutes before I hightailed it out of there. I was bummed. From what DK says, it's about consistency. I'm also wondering if it's more difficult to do the upper body/torso? If people are using the tub, how far are you letting the water go? I'm thinking about just sitting for now (even though my legs and bum don't need any shredding, LOL). And for the upper body I can do the ice packs instead. I really want this crap inside me gone (excess estrogen, omega 6's) and want my adrenals and thyroid humming( I know the CT bypasses these things).

    I have this new understanding that when Dr K doesn't answer a question I've asked, it's a way of saying 'Think for yourself!' and also a bit of a vote of confidence (saying, you can figure this out!). I'm learning to push myself to do that instead of waiting to be told.

    Calling all cooks.... I cannot source 99% chocolate in New Zealand (believe me I've tried). So I want to make my own. I have a great source for raw cocoa powder and can get cocoa nibs and whole raw cocoa beans, too. I can also get cocoa butter. But the ingredients in Lindt 99% chocolate say: chocolate, cocoa powder, cocoa butter and sugar. I am confused. What is chocolate if it's not cocoa powder and cocoa butter?????
