You live in Ohio. In a big city? Do not drink the tap water unless you really want anti-depressant drugs in your system. It may be that you are just drinking the wrong water.
I like to pound water (if I'm thirsty) before I eat, while I'm cooking. that way it's out of my stomach by the time I eat.
Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
