    much of this thread is about exactly that.

    a nurse friend swears by acupuncture for hers. then again, she refuses to try any chinese herbs (because she's a nurse, lol) and has her quadruple by-pass husband on a super-low-fat, almost vegetarian and soy-heavy diet. cw brainwashing for sure.[
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
    Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
    Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

    Very late on this thread, but being in the throes of hot flashes, I did some searching on the forum and this came up. Along with some dietary advice from TQP, I'm intrigued about the Dong Quai and if it really was the miracle cure you were hoping for tomi.
