That's so interesting... Did you read up on Kombucha afterwards to see what kind of effects it has on the body? Whenever I eat a food that gives me that feeling in my thyroid I usually email encyclo-Derp and ask him whether it's a food that supports or suppresses thyroid. It's always one that supports it! Our bodies are actually so sensitive if we learn to listen...

It's not the primal diet that's worsened my cellulite: it's my 16 lb weight gain, and all the junk food binges Although saying that, it's gotten worse again since I started body brushing and refeeding. I'm hoping that it's disloging... Btw I don't think those creams do anything :P
Sorry to hear that you still don't have peace with food It's such a good expression, isn't it? Is that a phrase that's used at OA?
It's true about the salt intake: when I was vegan I never salted anything, and my blood pressure was so low that I would get dizzy standing up. Same thing happened when I went low carb. I've always had low bp but lately I've been salting everything heavily, and when they check my bp in the gym it was normal for the first time in my life! Also, I noticed that when I used to eat salted oatmeal for breakfast (so good!) my bms were totally regular, and I attributed this to the salt drawing water into the small intestine.

It'll be interesting to see what happens now.
And yeah, much as I love coconut water, I'll be happy if I don't need to drink so much of it as it's a total drain financially...!
Btw, re. stomach acid: what do you think of ACV as a tonic?

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
