TI know you are anxiously awaiting the GTD book, you will enjoy it, it is worth the wait!
I got the book, did the measurements and did the fingerprints, but think I'll have to do those again. Never knew it was that hard to get good fingerprints. I'm thinking of going to the local police station and having them do it. You know they can get it right. ......then again, maybe I have low ridges....???? Now to get the figuring out done.
Speaking of probiotics, can anyone speak to whether they would be helpful for my husband's looooooonnng-lasting fungal/yeast infection over most of his torso and upper legs?
I had a friend who had skin yeast infections, she used a lotion that I swear by for many thing. It contains grapeseed extract and some other good things, tho it does contain parabens. As I only use it when I need it, I pretend they're not in there It is a bit expensive, so it's not like I'll be slathering it on every day. this comes in a plastic bottle now....same amount, different shape http://www.greatamericanproducts.com/pages/Home/Shopping/Skin_Care/Master_Cell_Protector_Cream
I finally got around to finding glossy style paper and did my husbands and my own fingerprints. His are white lined just like in the book, but he's an O who still likes to eat spelt 4 times a week. The quiz that Dr. D. put in his blog a few days ago says that he should stay on BTD and not switch to GTD.
Here's my confusion & question: Mine have white lines, too, but they don't look anything like his or the example in the book or the video. Instead of horizontal (left to right) most of them run vertically (up & down).
The book says: "Low ridges often indicate disruption in the lining of your intestinal tract or some other type of digestive problem. They could also indicate intolerance to gluten or sensitivities to grains...and "leaky gut"..." and "...you will certainly want to follow the carbohydrate prescriptions in your GenoType Diet, which can make a world of difference in correcting digestive problems..."
Does this mean that I need to stay away from gluten or since they are different in direction, that they are likely being caused by other things I have been eating that I should not have been (my quiz did say I should switch to GTD).
Hi, My son is the one that used the coconut oil to clear up his athletes foot. All his toes had huge flaps of ragged skin between them. Nothing the doctors gave him worked. They even had us use Original Listerine (guarenteed to work they said). His toes no longer have the ragged skin but they are scarred and pink. They are fading out but no signs of any recurring infection. We started seeing healing within the week of using the coconut oil 2 times a day rubber between the toes and across the nails. We used the "Garden of Life" Extra Virgin Coconut oil. 100% Organic No GMO's Vegetarian
I tried this for mine - nothing had been working (compliant to the diet to the point my husband was double checking me and I was driving him nuts I think, straight tea tree oil, straight lavendar oil, sunlight, sandals all the time, etc.). Well, it sorta helped for a little while and then quit...but I did not give up. Something about the coconut oil seemed like it should work, if only because its a GT3 Superfood.
I started eating it (about 1 Tab. a day) and putting it on my foot to keep it moisturised (not something that you're told to do with athlete's foot) and guess what! It started going away. I thought maybe it had just run it's course and was a coincidence so I stopped eating it. And it started creeping back. So I started eating it again and now it's pretty much gone.
I never would have even thought to try it on my feet or in myself were it not for this thread. Thanks everyone!
