Thank you for bringing me back to the topic, Clover. Interesting ideas! And many thanks to Sarah for your response in August! I plan to take some soup her way when next I visit.

I know that soured raw milk from healthy cows and goats is a goldmine, but I haven't moved forward with making anything out of it. I have two pickle jars full sitting in the back of my fridge for months now...at what point should I throw it out? Thanks, Sarah!

My mom had her gall bladder removed many years ago and hasn't been able to digest pork or chicken very well since then. She 'caught a tummy bug' last October, which caused her to start eliminating foods to try to regain health. She ended up in the hospital for her digestion but is now in a long-term care facility because of her heart (or rather, the heart meds they have her on). She has become so healthy, happy and vibrant since cutting out wheat and sugar! And the big plus--she finally listens to me about holistic health. The down side--they feed her such utter crap in the nursing home. I want to cook meals and bring them to her as often as possible...but she's still worried about eating saturated fats because she no longer has a gall bladder. How would you work around this? Any article or blog posts on the subject that I can share with her? Thanks so much for any help offered.

I agree with Sarah that dandruff is an external sign of internal imbalance. I'd had dandruff on and off since teen years (over 20 years) and in the past 6 weeks that I've lead the charge of a candida cleanse for my family and myself, I finally no longer itch nor flake.

For a while before the cleanse, I was doing the coconut oil + tea tree oil + lavender oil scalp treatment at least once per week, but it kept coming back.

Good luck to you!

I just allowed myself to experiment with eliminating the beloved nightshade veggies for my family, and have had great results both for an ongoing rash situation and clear thinking for me. I've had joint pain in the past, but haven't lately since being on a months-long candida cleanse and dropping a lot of weight (I always assumed the joint pain was from being overweight). Anyway, here's a great article I found on nightshade intolerances. I hope you find your way to freedom from pain soon!

Hi all! Thanks for this positively oriented forum! So glad that Sarah Pope's post about the WAPF contest directed me here!

I've been moving my family into a WAP style diet since reading Sarah's post about healing her son's cavity with nutrition last year. The changes have reversed decay for my now 3.5 year old son. Hooray!

About 8 months ago, a rash developed on my son's cheeks and ankles. I assumed it was ringworm since my husband had been battling jock itch for years and I'd recently succumbed to (my own) social pressure to participate in a vegan cookie exchange over the holidays, not realizing how seriously I was jeopardizing my family's health by bringing 5 dozen refined sugar pellets into our home. Thus ensued a slow progress toward my husband being on board with a full candida cleanse, which we are now in week 6 of 9. I miss raw milk, cheese and beans!! Only in the past week have I come to terms with a nightshade intolerance for my son and myself (I had the rash on my hand by this point). After eliminating all nightshade veggies in the past week, my rash is almost completely gone, and my son's is much better.

He is still itchy on his legs, though. So my question is this: I've been making homemade chocolate with coconut oil, cocoa powder, almond butter, crushed almonds, stevia and erythritol. Could he still be reacting because of the chocolate or erythritol? Thought in general on erythritol? I guess it's possible that because it's derived from corn that it could be GMO?

Thanks so much for your help! (And the title of this post is 'bless this rash' because it's appearance has led me on such a health odyssey that I'm grateful for it showing me the way to optimal health for my family!)
