Hi, Regarding Ginger in pill form, I read somewhere taking it with meals will help one thing and taking it inbetween meals will help in another way.  I think inbetween meals was for inflammation pain.  Does this have to do with where the pill dissolves?
  My Wal Marts started having organic lemons and I always have them in the refrig.  Is there any test that would show the amount of acid in my stomach/digestion juices?  Since the ND said as you get older your system changes and the acid decreases it made me think that I'd like to know now what it so I'd be able to recognize if it is decreasing.
 Smiles,
 Molly

Molly, I have not heard that about ginger. I have heard that bromelain will help with inflammation pain if taken on an empty stomach and is good with digestion if taken with meals.

I used to eat the pickled ginger regularly in sushi bars, but haven't been yet since I started BTDing. Looking forward to salmon  & tuna sashimi, tho. My mouth just watered, typing this!!


Oh, Suzanna  I know the feelin'................ my mouth waters too just thinking about it. Every time I get the sushi w/ the ginger at WF's, I swear I'm going to swear off it. Then about 2 mths later, I'm gettin' it again. I love the pickled ginger, tho I know I really shouldn't. But sometimes.................
WF also has something called Dolmas. They are spiced (not spic-y) rice wrapped in grape leaves, I believe. I think they're cooked or whatever they do to them in olive oil. I heat 2 in the micro for 30 seconds. They are super yummy. Super expensive too, but oh so worth it. I bought some of each yesterday and had some of each for lunch today. Just a little slice of heaven.

KK, where do you buy juiced ginger? Does WF have it? I really like ginger, but never thought of cooking it in w/ my beef. Would love to give that a try.

WF sells juiced ginger in the Asian foods section. Trader Joe's sells Dolmas, too. Rice, olive oil, lemon juice, and a whole lotta yum.

Does TJ have Dolmas all the time?  Just curious as some have said they only carry some things until they, basically, run out. I guess, like discontinued items, maybe???  Anyhow, I'll be checkin' that out. Thanks for the tip.   And about the ginger juice info.

Has anyone found anything like a sort of fast-acting counter-effect thing for some of the avoid problems, or do you just have to let the avoid run its course thru your system?

For example, if I've had something that gives heartburn, a bit of baking soda in a glass of water will usually ease that. The stuffy nose seems to go away on its own in a few hours, but the tired, run-down, drained effect, I have no idea what to do for. Nutritional yeast is supposed to be a pick-me-up, right? Haven't had much luck.

Anyway, have others found specific fix-its for specific problems, other than the obvious, to AVOID THE AVOID?

deflect seems to help heal your gut and works as a shield for those avoids that might slip in
once in a while.

Hi,  Recently I've gotten the Deflect product that Dr D has and its helped.  Last week I had a couple of bits of cornish hen and hadn't had the Deflect pill at any of my meals and did I have a headache and the next day the inside of my nose was dry(not normal.)  I'm sure if  I had taken that pill my system wouldn't have reacted so severly.  Otherwise, before I'd take whatever product was for that system, like an extra strenght tylenol and I'd drink lots of water.   I am not part of the Dr's staff but happy that I found BD.

I don't try to mask any of the avoids.  By doing so, I may feel inclined to have such foods more often, and that's of no long-term benefit to me.  By suffering the consequences each time, it continues to remind me why I don't indulge in the avoids too often.  As far as the tired, run-down, drained effect, I try to only consume those foods towards the end of the day, when I know that I have nothing on my schedule.  Every once in awhile, I get the urge for a very non-compliant pizza, and breadsticks.  I make sure to only have it when I know that I'm in for the evening.  Helps to put me to sleep later on, and the Clan O'Kitties get some one on one time, since I'm temporarily disabled on the couch.    I get to satisfy the occasional urge, and they get spoiled.  Win-win all around!
